The "Black Page" was a piece of music that Zappa wrote to challenge Terry Bozzio. He called it the black page, because there were so many notes, the pages looked black. Naturally, we took those notes and laser inlaid them in a snare. These are limited to 250 worldwide and come signed by Terry, with a case, as well as a very cool 7" vinyl pressing of the original recording of Terry playing the Black Page. To top this off, the proceeds of this drum go to St. Judes!!
