I perused, thank you very much, Bermuda! Interesting stuff... for this 70's kid.
I hit some of your recommended concert tom samples in my iTunes collection. Don't know what Karen Carpenter was pulling off on her drums (was it her?) on "We've Only Just Begun" but I would've guessed they're were double headed standard toms on that recording. Full(tone) and warm sounding (not a bad bank jingle from Paul Williams - as a kid I had no idea he was doing all those 70's talk shows smashed, as I saw the other day)... but I will admit, I chuckled out loud when I got to the tom fill in Cracklin' Rosie - major, major concert tom sound - semi flat and a, ummm, whappy(?) "heady" sound - just like the sound when I pulled off the bottom heads, almost immediately, off my first drum set... hence my chuckle at the audio memory.
