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.

FT legs are on their website: http://store.ayottedrums.com/floor-tom-legs/

This is a RIMS-type tom mount but I am sure you could take off the bracket and use as a FT leg mount but I am unsure of hole spacing:
http://store.ayottedrums.com/suspension-bridge-w-tb-5/

Contact them at: info@ayottedrums.com

If you do not need actual Ayotte parts, check out drumfactorydirect.com for generic replacement parts for the FT leg brackets. At least it will hold you over for now.....
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?
