You might have a bad head. I ran into quite a few (new) G2 clear and coated Evans heads that were dead. If the head is dead, it doesn't matter how good a drum tuner you are, it's just going to sound very lifeless in comparison to a head that was properly manufactured. I would give that 12" drum another chance by taking the tension down to nothing, re-seating the head and start the tensioning process again. I must have taken three or four heads back to the Five Star shop where I bought them and I have another two that has to go back.
