Anyone else who did wholesale business with Universal Percussion?
I was a wholesale dealer with them and got all my Keller shells, heads and some parts from them.
I'm screwed . . . I no longer have a wholesale outlet for shells!
Their abrupt closing effectively closed down the custom drum building arm of my business.
I need shells . . . have you found anyone to sell Keller shells at wholesale (without minimums)?
Thanks . . . NAD

Have you tried contacting Keller directly?
They have 3 options to buy direct from them:

40 shell minimum for custom orders:

Quik ship option with no minimums for in stock shells:

And they have their own eBay store that sells overstocks:

And here is a list of all their distributors:

Hope this helps,

Thanks for this good information . . . their eBay site is unless. they sell at nearly full retail and have OUTRAGEOUS shipping costs . . .
If it weren't for the overpriced shipping I would buy a couple shells from them . . .
I always got an A mark from Universal, plus an extra 10 if it was a big order.
Do you mind if I ask what mark you are receiving and what method you are using . . . you can PM me if you'd rather . . . thanks . . . NAD

I'm jumping in late here, but I too am/was a dealer getting product.
Try contacting Cardinal Percussion. They took over lots of the Universal product. They may know about the Keller shells.
I haven't placed an order yet with Cardinal.
