Damn! already wasted my toms?

Hi all.

I got my drum for about 2 months (a Tama Swingstar). I put my toms pretty angled towards the snare drum.

Now, the more you angle them, the more you hit them with the top of the stick, which seems to create lasting scars. All these small places of impact stay visible (creating a relief, lol). My two toms are fucked up big time by this.

Is this normal it happens so quickly? And when is the sign for me to replace it? (I mean the thing you hit with your sticks, can't come up with English word now).

How long does an average one last?

Thanks

anyways, did you put good tension on them? your skins will look fucked up after a while of drumming. but if the sound is getting bad, then you're doing something wrong

if its to loose, its gonna sound flappy and dead, if its to tight its going to sound really choked and high pitched. comon sense i would think.
angle them at about 45 degrees or flatter.
