Default 8-inch DW Tom Head

I've got an 8-inch collectors series (VLT) DW tom with the newer DW head on it (limited coating around the edge). On the 3/9-o'clock lugs, I only get a harmonic, and not the fundamental pitch, when trying to tune lugs around the drum.

Would that perhaps be a head issue?

Seemed like it was a bad head. I swapped out for Evans G2 heads... all is well, now.

I too had the same problem with my 8" and 10" pearl toms. I also change the heads to Evans G2's and it solved the prob. First I tryed the Evans onyx on them, but they seemed to make it worse. G2's all the way!
