A number of companies, including us :) We find that ash, & especially English ash, has such a wonderful balance & long note, you can make them do pretty much anything. Purpleheart is essentially maple on steroids. Actually, more "maple" than maple if I'm making any sense. Of course, performance depends on wood quality, construction, & a host of other stuff. The good stuff isn't cheap.
