Using a coated head as a resonant head
I was talking with a drummer the other day about different heads and such, and he gave me the advice that if I wanted a really warm sound for my toms I should try using coated heads on the batter AND reso sides of the tom. I had never really heard of this before, but I guess it makes sense. I'm assuming anything other than a single ply coated head wouldn't work well.
Has anyone ever used this? I want my toms to sound deep and warm, without tuning them low enough to the point of being dead.
