      OVERVIEW

      Introduced in 1968, CONTROLLED SOUND heads are single-ply Ambassador-weight heads with a 5 mil thick black or clear dot in the center of the head. This combination offers a controlled, centered sound without undesirable overtones.

      These dual-zone heads have a combination of medium and heavy-duty drumhead characteristics. The outer area of the head's playing surface offers a midrange tone and sensitivity while the laminated center dot eliminates high frequency overtones and adds durability and tonal focus to meet the demands of heavier hitters.

      The standard for great snare sound!

      At first I was using Remo Coated Emperors but then as I was watching a Led Zeppelin performance I thought to myself "I want to try those." so I ordered these for my Toms and my mind has been blown. I put them over some clear ambassador resonant heads, tuned them up and added a little moon gel and I made a entry level kit sound like a DW classics! They feel excellent too, If you put a coated ambassador on the snare with these heads on your toms, and a powerstroke 3 on the kick, you will love life!

      I LOVE the sound of these heads. The only problem is they dent really easy. After a month of playing on them I have a lot of dents in the "dot". I use 5A's. My powerstroke 3 holds up really well.

          My son has played the drums since he was 10. He is 15 and likes to hit them harder than required.

                    I bought this for a 6" Tama Concert Tom, and its perfect for that application. Has an open sound, not muted, with a little ring. It sounds equivalent to an Evans EC1.

                    Can't beat the classic look on a vintage kit either!

                      I've played these heads off and on for the last 25 years. I just recently purchased them for my toms, I also put clear Ambassador heads on the resonant side of the toms and tuned those a little higher than the batter side. The drums have a warm tone with the attack when you need it, a perfect combo!

                        The Black Dot Deadens The Ring A Little Bit, And
                        Also Prolongs The Life Of The Drum Head.

                        I have tried about 15 different snare heads and the CS black dot is the best for what I play. It cuts thru when you need it and is mellow depending on the song/application. I use it on a Tama Rockstar 6 1/2 x 14 metal cheapo snare and the CS head makes it sound great. Looks are nice but good sound is more important.

                        I was disappointed with the endurance of this head, I put it on a pair of Octabons, and with normal play, it had cracked and split wide open within about 10 minutes of playing.
