At Rubix we have the incredible sounding, Canopus ash kit. This kit is made for white ash, an incredibly versatile wood used for a variety of musical instruments around the world.

White Ash was the material widely used to make Fender guitars until the middle of 1950s. Strong attack and quick response are the primary characteristics of this material. Since ash wood is relatively rigid, and challenging to process, its use for musical instruments has gradually decreased over time.

On the other hand, it shows some favourable characteristics – displaying a well balanced nature, both in resiliency and hardness. Of all woods ash has the best strength to weight ratio – making it the wood of choice for baseball bats. Its wonderful bending properties make it popular for fine woodworking and furniture making. These qualities combine to make it an ideal material for strong, light, resonant drums.

We have combined the ash material with poplar and, using Canopus’ original processing technique for the bearing edges, this has enabled us to create a drum sound with a “seasoned taste” to it.

Now, you can enjoy a vintage-like sound which is both dry and resilient. It displays a full low frequency response, short sustain and clear projection. Playing these drums will give you a comfortable feeling of familiarity – like the sound and feel of an instrument you have known for many years.

Plus the natural ash finish looks stunning.
