Default Vintage 3ply Ludwig Concert and Standard Toms - What Heads?

I just bought a 9 piece shell pack with the following sizes:

Concert Toms - 6, 8, 10, 12
Standard Toms, 13, 14, 16, 18

I was planning on converting the concerts to standard toms but the guys at the vintage forum said the concerts have the lugs set lower, so there wont be enough room for the lower lugs without having to offset them. They also threatened to tar and feather me for ruining a set of vintage drums.

Therefore, I will keep the concerts as is but I need to try to find a head combo that will work between the two drum styles. Anyone have any suggestions? I prefer a classic rock sound, I dont like jazz sounding toms.

Chris

Coated 2-ply over clear 1-ply is the standard configuration for rock in general.

The more interesting question is what do you use on the concert toms? 2-ply, same as the other toms? Or silver dots, or pinstripes?

That is the thousand dollar question. Is there a head that will do double duty or will I need to run different heads. I like pinstripes and I have those on my StarClassics. I was almost thinking that black pinstripes on the regular toms and black hydros on the concerts would be the "closest" match between the shell types.

Black dot CS heads came to mind too.
