There are a number of tools on the market that are used to measure the tension on a drum head.
The two most popular of these are the Drum Dial and Tama's Tension Watch.
The principle is that when tension is even at all points across the drum head, the head will deliver a single pure tone. It is normally recommended that tools like these are used to get you in the ballpark but really, you cannot beat your own ears for fine tuning and deciding what sounds good!
