Bozzio "Black Page" Snare Drum

Recommended Posts

PAYING TRIBUTE TO FRANK ZAPPA’S INFAMOUS DRUM COMPOSITION
Written expressly for Terry Bozzio, “The Black Page” has become the stuff of legend among the drumming community. The notorious notation is laser-etched into Exotic White Birdseye Maple and the titles and iconic Zappa moustache is hand-inlayed with dyed-black Pearwood on this limited edition snare drum. The snare drum also features an 11-ply North American Hard Rock Maple shell. Also outfitted with special REMO Black Suede® heads and black nickel hardware, this limited edition drum comes complete with deluxe DW carrying case, certificate of authenticity, and Mr. Bozzio’s signature. Only 250 will be made worldwide.
A portion of all proceeds will be donated to the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

That's pretty cool.  I know it's pretty much a display item, but I saw him play that live once.  It was intense.  Very cool finish.

Bozzio is aging. Ugh. Makes me feel my age. Cool drum. The guys that do inlay are real artisans. I think marquetry is fascinating. I wish I had taken the time to learn the skill.

What a beautiful snare drum! I was never into Frank Zappa so, I never heard about "Black Page". I knew of Terry Bozzio, mostly from Missing Person. I am blown away by the intricate patterns! In my opinion this composition is right up there with Rush's "Villa"! I love this Drum Site!  It's members and moderator's turning me on to material I've never heard or explored! I've been learning so much! Every time I scan this site my eyes are open to something new! I wish I learned of this Drummers oasis sooner!

That's a really great art piece, tribute to Zappa as well as Bozzio and a beautiful instrument as well.  I know something like that is meant to sit in a glass case, but I'm curious to hear the sound with the 10 ply shell and the black suede heads.  

Classy drum.  Almost on par with Speedy's fan.  B)
