I didn't buy a kit. I just had a list of the tools (brushes, rollers, etc. ) and got them at various other stores rather than a photo store. Bought some ink at B&S.
Gene Laughter recommends a varitey of tools other than bromoil specific brushes and if you look at his work i don't think you can tell the difference between a 5 dollar paint brush or a 160 dollar bromoil brush.
