I knew single headed toms would come back into style sooner or later. As soon as someone in the public eye did it. And that has happened with Taylor Hawkins single headed Gretsch kit. They even had it an NAMM this year. SO probably more will follow. In the 70's when multi track recording became popular (possible) and guys decided they needed a mic on each tom, they started taking the bottom heads off in order to stick a mic up in the shell. Drummers, being drummers, saw this, and followed suit. I was included in this as around 1974 I promptly removed the bottom heads and discovered a different sound. Also, just as promptly, misplaced the rims and tension rods for good, As well as tore up the bottom bearing edges. Oh well. Haven't done it since, and am not likely to. From the drum seat, it implies a little more volume and projection. To me it also takes away a lot of the complexity of the drum sound, and doesn't really improve on it. I prefer 2 properly tuned heads


Nicely said ( " ... complexity of the drum sound ... " ). I fully agree.

Boy, what a lovely kit in that picture ( I'm partial to that color on the shells off-set by that finish on the hardware ) -

I'll stop here, knowing this is overkill, but these pics show another famous person's kit which goes heavy on Concert Toms, and shows mic placement.
