I play metal, and I've always used clear heads for my toms.
However, after I bought the Yamaha Tour Custom 8000 set, I decided to go with coated heads.
I play metal, and the toms of my Yamahas are pretty deep, deeper than the drums they make now. I wanted to have this powerful, but deep sound (which is helped by the construction of the Yamahas).
So far I haven't regretted my decision, as the toms sound really nice, warm and deep.
Most probably clear heads would have sounded good as well, but for now, I will stick with the coated ones.
