im looking towards buying new heads for my set........ im looking for a tom sounds much like the drummer in damien rice. i play guitar and drums in my band. we have a guitarist who also drums. so we switch around on w/e songs we want to. i play mostly the damien rice on guitar and he drums to those.
but im looking for a head to fit a variety of styles:
damien rice
the format
the fratellis
rush
the fray.
the rocket summer
led-zeppelin

Depending on how hard you hit and how 'open' you want your toms to sound, I'd be looking at coated G1s or coated G2s over clear G1s. I'm running G1s both sides, coated over clear. Obviously, the Remo/Aquarian/Attack/etc equivalent will work just as well.

Neil is/was fond of the Remo CS dot on his snare head.
