Veneer Sheets that top manufacturers use


New member
Hey guys

I am after a little bit of inside knowledge (if anyone has it)! I am wondering where people such as Keller, Dw, Tama etc get their veneer ply's from? I am currently making my own drum (trying) for an A level project in high school, but the only veneers I can find (which are readily available) are 0.6mm thick, but the school doesn't have the machine to make thick enough veneers to use, plus I don't like them as much as a DW snare I have which was made by Keller. The ply's they use look to be around 1mm thick. But I cannot for the life of me find then anywhere. Does anyone have an idea? I am also based in the UK.
