Default Bonham tuning: Ocheltree or Bonham Sessions ?

I have been using Ocheltree's video ever since for tuning my set. Lately I've been into the Bonham Sessions and like the sound of that higher pitched tuning.
One question I have is that the snare & toms in the Bonham Sessions are pitched higher. I am leary of tuning up higher on the snare (to that pitch) as I feel I would break the head or strip out a lug? I (we all) like how it sounds now with the Ocheltree tuning, but I personaly would like to tune up to the Sessions pitch.

Go for it. Bonham wasn't tuned so high as to break his drums... So don't worry, they can take it.

Note: Don't crank up the tension rods like they're a faucet handle, however. Go slow in tiny increments.
