Just a small update: I ordered two shells from Nordic (nothing fancy, just regular maple) on Sunday and they shipped today.

Does anyone know if Nordic shells are a stand alone drum shell company, or are they a part of the same Nordic company that does i-joists and glue lam beams?

That company appears to be Canadian and everything I've seen about Nordic sounds like they're drum shell-only business.

I'm glad that they're a stand-alone company that drum shells are their bread and butter and not the redheaded stepchild like at Keller and Jasper.

the 24" tubes are in high demand from other industries such as furniture, display and fixture companies. one such company is ordering $300k of tubes quarterly.. keller options for shells is being reduced.. i recently inquired about ordering 40 shells which has been there minimum for quite sometime and any shell with an exotic or special ply was off the table.. i ended up grabbing standard 7ply maple magnum shells. i had them cut in to 6x14 so that i could get 4 full shells from each tube

I wonder if the rumors about Keller are in fact related to some of the difficulties we've seen in the lumber industry.
