Concert toms definitely are easier to tune, so they're actually a decent place to start for someone just learning to tune drums. Tuning is a struggle for all of us until we learn the skill through trial and error, and concert toms can be a good baby step.

But once they've learned to stop pulling their hair out each time they try to tune the drums, most people will prefer to have a resonant head. In addition to just sounding warmer and, in my opinion better (concert toms tend to have a more hollow sound), they also have much better response. The rebound off a properly tuned drum with two heads is just superior to the relatively more lifeless response of a concert tom. For those drummers who, like me, rely on this rebound for some of their faster and more interesting fills, concert toms just don't cut it.

Maybe that's much my crutch. I guess we all have our baby steps.
