This is in most cases 100% correct in my opinion. I have I think eight 16 x 16 floor toms and everyone of them sounds great. That’s exactly how I set them up-pretty tight on the bottom and no more than medium or less on the top.Here's a little gem that Jeff Chonis, Ringo Starr's tech shared with me and it's priceless. "Tune the bottom head tighter than you think, tune top head looser than you think". Try it!
if you really don’t like you’re 16 x 16 floor toms please send to me
