This is correct. I have a 15" and a 16" Canopus bd and they put tom heads on both those drums. I've tried to find 16" bass heads and haven't been successful. Apparently there are still productions delays? TBH, the tom heads sound great and are cheaper.I believe that Canopus goes out of their way to state that they use tom heads on their 15" RFM bass drum. Correct me if I am wrong, but I thought that tom heads would work on small bass drums with wood hoops (if you are careful not to let the narrower flesh hoop slip from under the wooden hoop), but not the other way 'round ...... ie bass drum head (with heavier flesh hoop) on a tom with triple flange hoops.
