Default Coated on resonant side?

Has anyone tried putting coated heads as resonants on toms? I was thinking coated ambassadors, and on batter side I have coated emperors. What would be the result soundwise?
And, maybe someone could advise me on which bass res head to get?
Thanks!

This used to be standard fare for companies like Tama and Yamaha before the glory days of metal (Pinstripes on the batter and clear resonants). Give it a try on one tom and see what you think - you might be a trend setter!

I just bought a Ddrum Diatribe kit (birch/basswood) and replaced all my batter side heads with Remo coated Emperors and resoanant side with Remo coated Ambassadors, including snare and bass. They sound great. I tune the resonant side much higher than the batter side and this gives the kit a nice deep full sound. The bass is tuned the same way and I use no pillow. Instead I use a felt strip on reso and batter side. This idea came from the Jeff Ocheltree video. It works, my 24 inch bass drum sounds like a cannon. I love it.

I tried tuning with some old coated and clear heads, and clear sounded better for me. So in the end I bought clear Evans G1. I prefer looser tunung of the reso head, and clears were better at that. Thanks anyway!

I'm going to use coated heads on the bottom from now on. I'm tired of having thin plastic sounding toms, coated bottoms would take some of that plastic quality away.

I use Remo Suede heads on both sides of my rack toms. The heads sound quite warm and are easy to tune. My bass reso head is an Acquarian Regulator with the 4 3/4" offset hole. I hope this helps!
