      Remo

      The standard for great snare sound!

      Introduced in 1968, CONTROLLED SOUND heads are single-ply Ambassador-weight heads with a 5 mil 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 REMO Control Dot is a well engineered head, designed to have a killer 'fat' spot within the 'dot' area. At the edge of the dot the head produces a less-fat, and cleaner/brighter sound. As you get closer to the edge you get a timbale-like sound, making this a versatile head if you're likely to play (let's say) rock, latin, and jazz at the same gig. The head also produces a great rim-click, and has plenty of volume overall. The head really has, to be tuned well to get any kind of satisfying sound, otherwise it's a bit ring-y. Tune the bottom (of your snare) head to 'A' while the batter head is removed from the drum. Make sure you get a clean 'A' at each lug-point (worth the effort), then put on the batter head, tuning correctly to a 'C', or higher if you want. Mess around with the snare tension, and before you know it, your snare will sound better than ever. This is not a conventional head, and it does take getting used to the different sounds, but a sweeter rim-shot you've never heard ... my guitar players even noticed. Remember, the key is in the tuning ... snare side, than batter. Have fun, it's a great head!

        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.

          Comments about Remo Controlled Sound Reverse Dot Coated Snare Head:

          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.

                  Was used on a 6 1/2 x 14 1969 Ludwig Supraphonic snare drum #401. Chrome over Alum Shell. Used with a clear DIPLOMAT snare head. Med tuning. Results: Very delicate response and a hefty fatback slap! One of the finest head combinations I have ever heard. Received MANY accolades on the sound of the drum.
                  BUY IT! (I'm also a staunch Evans fan.)

                      I tried this head looking for something specifically desigined to improve the sound and quality of my snare drum. I've never looked back, my snare sounds awesome at shows!!! The only flaw I can give it is that I usually will go through 2 a year playing rock, hard rock/metal. If you don't want to replace it every 6 months you may want to look elsewhere otherwise I think this head will be a keeper on your set for years to come!!

                          I played with my friends kit the other day and I was so surprised with his drums. They were all solid mahogany and 15 years old. I couldn't believe the sound that came out of his snare though. With this head, it makes that snare even sound totally better. Definitely go get one. Plus it's so affordable!

                          Plain and simple...I did not like this head on my 12x4 Pork-Pie maple snare. There was WAY too much high end ringing going on. My feelings are that if I have to add gell or tape to a head for great sound, something is wrong. I'm going back to an Evans Genera Heavey Dry batter...its clean sharp attack cuts through any mix without all the high-end overtones and ringing.

                                As a serious "garage" drummer with club experience playing hard/heavy rock/metal, I'm impressed with the CS reverse dot. Of course, with the benefit of online tutelage, I finally tuned my metal snare drum properly (with muffling) and have obtained the celestial "crack" from this head-at least to my satisfaction since we all have our subjective definition of it. I just played a gig NY eve and am happy with the results. I'll probably stick with this head and keep rockin' in my early 50's. Peace/Out
