They would? It seems to be me 2 ply yields a thicker and meatier tone. If you want your toms to sing and can add the extra woof through a sound system well then I guess it's really not an issue.
You're probably thinking about their live sounds - it's a bit different when you don't have top class sound equipment - just a reminder.
