Default Drum tuning question. Real kit

Ok I am not enough of a drummer to say I play drums. I have a kit in my studio. Nothing special, it's a Pearl Forum series. The toms are 12", 13", and the floor is 16". I just put new batter and resonant heads on them and I'm tuning them. What is a good reference point for tuning them. I'm going nuts reading forums and YouTube etc. I'm ok using notes but what should I use. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I want them to be tuned for mixing them for recording only. Its never gonna leave my room. I'm finding I'm always to high or low and in 4ths apart the 12's to high or the 16's too low.
Thanks for any help
