These are selection of heads that we think suit toms either on the resonant (bottom) or batter side (top). Of course there is no hard and fast rules and you can always experiment with other drum heads.

Getting the correct tom sound can be a bit of an art form. The correct balance of warmth whilst controlling the overtones can be difficult, but we have every head you could need to bring the best out in your drum. We recommend experimenting with dampening to refine your sound further.

Remo are the leading name in drum heads. Their single ply Ambassador head and double ply Emperor heads are trusted by drummers all over the world for their toms. They are not unrivalled though.

Evans have developed a huge loyal following of drummers who trust in their level 360 technology to provide an easier and more accurate tuning across the drum. Their EC2S ranges include built in dampening rings that have become a favourite of many drummers.

Most drummers change their toms heads whenever the coating on the head starts to come off or dents appear, but this is actually a poor measurement of the life left in a head as they are often over-stretched long before this. We recommend changing your heads at least every 6 months, but this of course varies with frequency of use. Some heads have extended durability such as the Evans heavyweight range, and the specially designed Evans UV1 Coated heads actually won’t lose their coating ever!
