Read about it in Modern Drummer back in the day.
Ludwig was having a shell supply problem and used Jasper for a short while.
Ummm...nope. Ludwig has always made their own wood shells.

Also, looking back at the posts from 2009 is interesting as we now know, according to Gretsch themselves, that the 6 ply shells are, and always were , a m/g/g/g/g/m layup.

Mr. Corder had no intention of manufacturing fiberglass shells as far as I remember.
I remember an MD interview with him in the early 90s that confirms this. My high school marching band was outfitted with Corder basses and quints, and Ludwig snares(I'm in Birmingham, so they were "local"). I've been wanting to find a Corder snare for years. They pop up from time to time, but never at the right price it seems.
