Ayotte Custom Drumkit Reviews 4

Bought at Italmelodie in Montreal, Qc in July 1998. I ordered the kit 2 months ealier because this is a custom built drum kit. I was looking for a unique custom kit made to my specs. That's what I got. Paid 5000$ can +tx

Sound is incredible. Open, warm with good attack. That is, when not mounted on the tom arm!! (Read next topic)

SBA system doesn't work at their fullest. The toms have more sustain when held in the hand. The SBA system chokes some frequencies. I think that you shouldn't have that kind of problem when you pay this much for a custom built kit.

Kit includes the following sizes:8x8, 10x9, 12x10, 13x11, 15x13 all toms and a 22x16 bassdrum all in Purple fade gloss finish with wood hoops.

With a different suspension system, this kit is wonderfull. For small setups, RIMS might do it. Right now, I'm having my own designed suspension system made for all the toms. It's similar to DW's with Ayotte's lugs specs. Because the SBA is not perfect, I give the kit a 4.
