I had a kit with Single-headed Toms (Concert Toms). The Basses were played with Batter and Resonator heads, and the Floor Tom had both heads. But three of the Up Toms were Concert Toms (with no hardware provisions for the Resonator head).

I agree with sherm. Complete Toms are more appealing to me. I tried a few ways to approach the Concert Toms to bring out a rounder tone to come as close as I could to a Tom with Batter and resonator heads; and found what I considered the best head for the job (at that time) was a Remo Pinstripe. Also tried Evans heads, including Hydraulics. Although the Hydraulics sounded good, initially, they stretched easily and sounded quite flat in just a matter of a few hours of fairly vigorous playing. Their coated single-ply head didn't fare much better.

Remo Clear Controlled Sound helped, and were an excellent second choice; being durable and were able to draw out pretty good tone. Pinstripes, however, really seemed to be a cut above those others. Never tried Aquarian heads on those Toms so I can't give any input regarding that brand in that role. Also, I was playing mostly Rock-oriented music.
