The Canbourine is a musical instrument included in the RUSTInstruments Pack DLC, which must be purchased from the Steam store.
You can manually play the canbourine by pressing
Mouse One and
Mouse Two. You can also press the
R key to turn your keyboard into an array of instrumental notes.
Alternatively, you can hook up a midi-player to play your favorite songs, or you can load midi’s into your RUST folder and play them using the RUST console command line.
See our guide on how to play RUST instruments.
If you do not like RUST’s instruments, you can turn them off in the settings without affecting other game sounds.
