      OVERVIEW

      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.

      The standard for great snare sound!

      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:

          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!

                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.

                            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.)
