Comments:

There's been a long debate over whether single-headed or double-headed concert toms sound better, and I think the ultimate factor is the sound you're looking for. Traditionally, single-headed toms have produced a punchier sound with a quicker decay, while their counterparts have a much more rounded and resonant sound dude to having a second head that vibrates sympathetically. I've always preferred the latter, since you have much, much more control over the tuning and resonance. I've found that no matter what type of head I put on these shells, I've never been able to get a sound that I like, even if I physically alter the head (moon gels, tape and pads, etc.), but if short and punchy and empty is the sound you're looking for, then these drums work. Maybe you'll have more luck than me. The reason that I've only given this product two stars is Ludwig's mounting system. I've found that over time, the set screw that secures the mounting block to the post no longer holds position, and you have to use the tiny memory clamp to fully support and maintain the rotation of the drum, and even still, the tab/notch isn't a snug fit, so the drum will still rotate. The mounting plate, which is secured to the shell by two in line screws will loosen and the shell will rock back and forth when the drum is struck, and even when they're cranked as tight as possible the drum still won't stay still. Other than that, the shells are rock solid, the lugs are great, and if you have a ton of money lying around, go for it.
