Snare drum replacement parts supplier

Got a couple of those older Yamaha super sensitive type snare drums. They both have the same issue in that the white nylon bushings for the douple throw off connecting rod have broken off. Does anyone know where you can a replacement part for something like this? Maybe a used drum part supplier? I cannot find anything on these. See pics. Thanks.

Have you tried the hardware store? It possible they have something very similar. If there's a small, been in business forever type shop in your town, start there. A box story might have something, but you'll do more searching on your own there. Ace is a good middle ground.

The local music store near me has a 'junkyard' of little parts of this type. They get a lot of stuff in trade-ins, and some of the drums themselves are Firewood, but before they toss them, they strip out all the little screws, springs, wing-nuts, lugs and bushings and stick them in those little drawers like your grandfather has over his workbench.

I have found tons of things that I needed in this way. It might take some pawing through a pile of similar items. Often if I am buying a pair of sticks while I am there, the guy will just throw in the little screw.

Like the hardware stores, this also works best with the more 'local' mom-and-pop type stores.

I had an old pedal that had a part that kept wearing out. The part was not listed on the website separately. I contacted the manufacturer directly and was able to order the part after speaking to a human. I bought three.

Thanks for the suggestions. Amazingly as it sounds it is hard to find the mom and pop shops in houston. I cannot even find a shop that does drum repair. I think I will just take them to a machine shop and have them make some from nylon/teflon bar stock. Should be worth it to make 4 new ones.
