Default How do you know you've made your drum(s) sound their best?

I feel that I'm relatively capable of tuning my drums pretty good. Right now they sound like I "think" they should sound. How do you know when you've reached that optimal sound for your drum(s)? There are just so many variables to take in to account like the type of batter/reso head and such.

Right now I have (for batters) G2's on my 10", 12" & 16" toms; a G1 on my 8" and an Ambassador on my snare.

The resos are all stock - eventually, I'll put G1's/Ambassadors across the board.

I know this is highly personal regarding taste, but I'm just striving to make the best sound I can.

BTW, my bass is PS3 batter and Stock Gretsch reso.
