I haven’t tried it on toms specifically yet, but I think if I were to get a set of mics specifically for this task, I would get the Shure KSM8. It has the fatness of a dynamic mic and its lack of distortion on very loud sources without the tub of a normal single-diaphragm directional mic, has possibly the best-behaved cardioid pattern I’ve heard, and the thing that makes me not use it for its intended purpose (singing vocals), which is its lack of treble, would get rid of a lot of cymbal wash.

Just sayin’, somebody should try it
