OVERVIEW

The standard for great snare sound!

Since 1968, the Controlled Sound drumheads have been relied upon by countless professional drummers. This single-play snare head is Ambassador-weight. It features a dual-zoned head with a 5mm center dot which combines the best of medium and heavy drumheads. Around the edge of the drumhead, a resonant, sensitive, medium-range tone can be achieved. In the center, the laminated dot eliminates excessive overtones for a focused, deep tone. Designed to keep up with heavy hitters, the centered, controlled sound from this Controlled Sound Snare Head is wonderfully balanced.

Been using Remo heads my entire life and switched to controlled sound 2 years ago from my traditional coated ambassador. It gives so much punch and depth but can still play it dynamically for lighter material. Sounded amazing in the studio and just as good in live situations. Don't think I'll ever use another head for my snare but this one!

I LOVE the sound that this head makes when I tune it right (which took me roughly half an hour to do). The only thing I do not like about it is that the head is just not durable at all. I have had this head for maybe a week or two as of writing this, and the coated layer is already starting to peel off. I made a switch from the Evans HD Genera Dry head which I liked, but wanted to stick with Remo. I bought this head with a gift certificate, though, so no worries money wise. As much as I adore the sound that this head projects (and would continue to buy this head if it would stay together), I am just going to have to stick with the Evans HD Genera Dry for the durability. I usually use Remo for ALL of my toms and snare, but this time, it is going to have to be Evans.

            A great head to always rely on. Heavy drummers like myself cause the coat to fade quicker, but always great to use when new.

                This snare head is a great choice for a drummer that hits in the center of the head as opposed to others that choose different areas of the drum for other snare sounds. The dot holds up well. Very durable and long lasting. Since beginning to use reinforced snare heads a few years ago, I have been able to save money with less frequent replacement.
