Why did you "have to"?

For the reso-less 12 inch tom I would recommend an Aquarian Studio-X coated head. I use these on my Pearl Rhythm Traveler toms. They are the best single ply heads for bottomless toms that I have found.
I also use Evans Hydraulic heads on concert toms, (Old seventies trick) Emperors are also good, (Sixties thing that was done a great deal)

The SK will work OK on the bass with or without a reso.
Also an Emperor with a pillow works fine. (Sixties Style)

This will get you through until you can afford to repair or replace the drums.

Keep in mind that only about $200 can buy you an OK sounding used set of drums.

But you can afford a new head?

A new head is what, $14-15 (give or take) these days.

A 12" drum hoop is $20-25
