Tuning is definitely a personal thing, but I used to just grab the guitarists tuner, and tune my drums to a specific chord. I think the difference between the center of the drum, and the rim was about 1/3 lower. So, I would evenly tighten all of the lugs, and keep track of where each one was by tapping hard enough to produce a tone. I would pick that tone up with the tuner, and keep tuning up until I got to 1/3rd below the note I was targeting. The middle of the head should be the note I was looking for then.

If you go past it, make sure that you go below it, and tune it up from there.

I'm pretty sure I got that tip years ago on this forum, but it works really well. Also, don't tell the bass player the notes you are turned to. If he plays them on his bass it will make your heads vibrate very intensely.
