Default Coated vintage emperor

I just put a Coated 12in VE on my Tama SCP all birch tom. When I played by itself it sounded good but when I mounted it on the kit it sounded dry. My other toms have clear emperors on them and they had more resonance . I know the VE are coated and thicker but I didn't think it would dry the sound that much. Do you guys think it has anything to do with the drum being birch? Also for some crazy reason Remo heads fit very snug on my kit. Thanks for your opinions

Could be a number of factors, these threads about 12" toms appear quite often... Remo heads are the same for me, they barely fit on my 8" and 12" tom. I'd want to try Aquarian but the local store doesn't carry them, so I'm gradually switching to Evans because the collar on their heads are slightly wider than Remo's. Holding a G2 and a Emperor head, I can fit the Emperor into the G2, but not vice versa.

I don't think it has anything to do with the fact that you have a birch kit. I think it has to do with Remo.

We have a birch kit here at the studio (Mapex Meridian Birch), and it sounds wonderful. We use Evans G2 Coated on the batter heads, a Evans Power Center Reverse Dot on the Snare, and a EMAD on the bass drum.

We also have a set of the new Evans Black Chrome heads, which also sound amazing and have a deeper punchy tone!

Here is a VIDEO of the kit and how it sounds with the evans!

(It sounds great with headphones)

Thanks for the replies. Derek do have any muffling in your kick drum? The kit does sound great.
