Ash 14×18 Bass Drum
Ash 14×18 Bass Drum
White Ash was the material widely used to make Fender guitars until the middle of 1950’s. 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 favorable 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 popular 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.
Furthermore, the natural beauty of the ash woodgrain, when colored, is particularly attractive.

I tend to like a more ‘old school’ sound from my drums. My idea of the perfect kit is one that combines a punchy attack with a meaty tone, and these drums deliver that consistently.
Drummers often look for that perfect sounding kit; however, it’s more important to find the kit that best fits within the ensemble and the overall ‘sound’ of a band. I’m very happy with the Ash drum and how it’s versatility allows us to take the music in different directions.
I've enjoyed my ash bop kit for over a year now and never cease to be amazed at the quality and attention to detail; and, as any of my friends and colleagues will tell you, I'm not easily impressed…
