I always liked the sound of the Ash story line but it sounds like not many people are that happy with it as an actual effect. I was hoping to pick up a second-hand copy sometime but it sounds like my money might be better spent on something else.


I still think it is a good.prop for my purpose, but not for anyone who just wants to do a trick. Storytelling magic goes well beyond the. "Hey!Look at this!" A thumb tip in the amateurs hand is noticible, but in the professional's it could be orange and never noticed. It is the same in most book tests, it depends upon the art of the teller.

So, you are right, it may not be for you. Only you can determine that.

Thanks for that weepinwill. I think I might keep my eye out for a cheapish copy and if one appears I might try and grab it. If nothing else it could be a cool prop to go along with Luna.

Good luck on that. If anything, I expect Ash will sell for more now than when retailed.

There is a person on the Café that just offered to sell me ASH for $110. Don't know if that is cheap or not, but it's out there.

More than retail but less than I would sell mine, so I would think it a fair price.

I know that Vic recently obtained the rights to some effects from Outlaw Effects but if I remember rightly this didn't include Ash. So I guess there is little chance of it being reproduced which probably means the price of copies will only continue to rise.

Won't make the repro an original outlaw production either.

$110 is a great price for ASH—seriously doubt you’ll find cheaper....

I wouldn't sell mine for less than $175, so you are correct that $110 is a great price. Didn't it originally sell for $125?

If I remember correctly, I believe it sold for $165 originally and after a while was dropped to $125.

But now that it’s no longer available, I’d guess it should command quite more than the original price.

Okay. Here's a loaded question that I do not remotely know the answer to. Who came up with the concepts of Outlaw Effects' offerings? Was it just Rick, or a collaboration, or both?

I suspect it was Rick who led the charge of suggesting ideas for premises, routines, and effects to his builders, but simply stole the results of their efforts and claimed them as his own. Can any of the creators and/or builders offer input and context here? The whole tragic rise and fall of this company intrigues me. Not due to pity for its demise, but for the wasted energy and money it's cost the creators and supporters who were sucked into the Outlaw Effects vortex.
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

Sounds like a good potential for a book.

Especially the supporters who were sucked in with promises that never saw the light of reality.

I purchased Ash back when it came out...looked it over when it arrived...decided it wasn't for me...and stored it away in a tub. Somewhere. Perhaps I should look for it.

I’ve just managed to purchase Ash for a very good price and am eagerly awaiting it’s arrival . I already have the instructional pdf but it’s difficult to imagine without the prop in hand . As the forum is no longer available I may well be after some advice from you guys

My advice is to increase your fire insurance coverage.

It’s landed and it’s wonderfully creepy! Any tips on writing the notes for best effect would be very much appreciated, I’d like it be as authentic as possible

It plays without notes just as well. Sometimes less is more, so don't over do it.
