Larger Variety of Brass Strips & Shapes?

Seems all I can find in brass strips and shapes make pretty big jumps in sizes and are pretty limited in selection. Example, 1/4", 1/2", 3/4" to 1" wide and nothing in between seems to be the norm with what I'm finding. What I would like to find are brass strips and shapes in a large variety in sizes much like what you can get in Evergreen Styrene. Does someone make something like this?

https://eileensemporium.com/ stock a large variety. Between metric and imperial sizes there is quite a range of strip, section, and rod.

If you’re willing to order from England. I’ve always found the service to be very quick and reliable.

Special Shapes Co. used to carry all that stuff (in USA) but K&S swallowed them few years ago and basically killed them.

I second this.  Easy to purchase and relatively quick delivery (near surprising) from them.

They also have a vast selection of METRIC styrene strip and diameters, etc, for those gaps or thicknesses that English dimension styrene won't match.
