I have a floor tom that i need to mount upside down because of where the mount is positioned. If i just put a batter head on the bottom and reso head on the top. will it sound the same? Do they cut different bearing edges on the 2 sides of the drum?

They should be the same. You have a Renown Maple, right? 30 degree edges are on both the top and bottom.

i'v got a renown maple, a mapex m series, and a pearl ecx. the one that i have to flip the tom on is the mapex
