I know the conventional wisdom is to tune a two-tom setup in fourths or maybe fifths. But I always feel like when I've got my rack tom sweetly singing, the floor tom a 4th down makes a weird nasal tone, with no thump. And when I've got the floor tom into its powerful sounding zone, the rack tom a 4th up is making a dull thud. Seems like the solution is to tune them at an octave apart. Anyone else doing this, for the same or different reasons? Is there a rationale (other than maybe trad jazz in bop tunings) where an octave would be inadvisable?
