    Everything Magnus said.
    Also, consider why the bleed is bothering you, when it's mainly the other tom that causes the problem.
    Is it the timing of the drummer and you will audibly separate some tom tails when quantizing the tracks? Then think about samples or record the toms separately.
    Is it because you need to gate each tom a lot? Think about shortening the initial tom sound (tuning, tape, moon gel…).
    Is it because you need to change the tom sound of each tom quite a lot while mixing? Try to get each tom sound as close to the sound you want on the recording.
