UP Drums - Rick Latham Apex Signature Snare

UP DRUMS (Markus Unterthurner & Urban Piazzi), located in Südtirol/Italy have been making extraordinary snare drums for more than a decade. World famous funky drummer Rick Latham (Artist, Best Selling Author and Educator) discovered these unique products and fell in love with these awesome snare drums, followed by the decision to put together their knowledge, creating for Rick Lathams's 60th birthday the Rick Latham Apex Signature snare drum.

The Apex snare drum, designed by UP drums and Rick Latham, hand-crafted in South-Tyrol/Italy will be produced in a limited edition of 60 snares. The snare drum has an incredible sensitivity, feel and sound. The buyer/customer of this extraordinary drum will be surely pleased by the patented fusion-hoop-tecnology, a real innovation in the drum industry.
