    Hi everyone
    I also put a listing in the Wanted section and figured I'd mention here also.

    I recently (about 2 months ago) got my hands on an Ayotte 3 piece shell kit. Pretty good deal too. The only problem (there's always a catch) is it is void of floor tom legs and brackets. Ayotte's web site lists authorized dealers, both in the states and Canada, and if contacted most of them. I get similar responses: "haven't dealt with them for a while" or havent heard from them in a few years."
    Does anyone here have an idea where I can locate the parts needed?

    Thanks in advance. Your help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks. I'll try the Ayotte store. Your links work well. Dont know why I couldn't access the site before.

    Not sure of current state, but I've heard that getting action out of Ayotte can be a month-long process. Nice drums though.

    if your jonesing to play it...maybe get an isolation bracket or cradle until you can find the parts. No new holes and a kit you can use right away.

    Wouldn't an Inde bracket be a good solution if it already has holes drilled?
