Default My 12" tom now sounds wack.

Well I just recently got G2 coated for my tom batters, and I have had the same reso's [genera reso] on for a few months now. I tuned them up and my 12" tom sounded good until yesterday.

I noticed a bit of ring coming from the tom. So I retuned it, and now the ring is just in your face. Too much ring. I tried re tuning it again and found the same results.

I was thinking of getting a g1 clear for the reso later this week.

Any advice?

Replace your resonant heads maybe?

Did you tune both the reso and batter heads to the same pitch?

Yes both are at the same pitch. I will pick up some new reso's on friday, since the ringing is still there, and it is intolerable.

If they are tuned to the same pitch they must be perfectly tuned or the result will be ringing and overtones. If you want to make life easier tune the resonant slighlty higher in pitch and that should lessen or eliminate the ringing. I have coated Emperors which are the same as G2's and I don't have this going on. The other would be to swap your resonant heads to a clear ambassador or clear g1 which I see you have already mentioned. I'm not familiar with a "genera reso" but is that a snare resonant head?
If it is then that is definitely your problem.
