      OVERVIEW

      The standard for great snare sound!

      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.

        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 ordered these at some point long ago, and had mixed feelings about them. They made my toms loud, deep, but I didn't notice any overtones being muffled or anything like that. I bought them because they looked cool, I'd buy em again, but I dont completely like them, unless I put studio rings on em first. good value though.

                  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!

                      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.

                            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 have been playing for thirty years and these heads have been on every set I have owned !!! The combo on my Ludwig as follows: Black Dot Batter, REMO Ebony Ambassador Resonant heads, with one Moongel Dampening Pad on each. WOW !!! What a sound. These babies here are powerful and strong! Trust me when I say, buying these individually will cost you a little more, but is well worth it! You won't be disappointed !!!!! ROCK ON !!!!!
