The head for every snare
itsallaboutthegroove, 17.08.2019
I absolutely love the controlled sound head and use it on almost all of my snares, from a 14"x6.5" Supraphonic (aluminium) to a 13"x6" Mapex (walnut) to a 14"x5.5" Premier (birch) to a 14"x6.5" WorldMax (brass).

I find that for about 80% of snare drums it's in the sweet spot between lively and dead. Not as bright and ringy as an ambassador or G1 can be, but not too dead like a pinstripe or emperor can be either. The CS also gives you a really fat sound when you play in the centre of the head — perfect for rock and pop live and in the studio. Since it's still single ply at the edges you can get the press roll feeling and ghost notes that are missing from a 2-ply head, and the "reggae rimshot" sound is still there too.

The only downside of the Controlled Sound is that the centre dot feels a little less 'bouncy' than the single-ply edges, and this means the rebound isn't consistent all over the head. I find I get used to it quite quickly, but it's worth bearing in mind if you're playing very soft music or like a highly responsive feel, or you're used to a G1/Ambassador.

But don't let that discourage you — the Controlled Sound is so good that it's now the head I try first on a new drum. Most of the time, it's all I need.

Great sound!

Used this on a few different snare drums and it's probably one of my favourite Remo heads. Nice and respnsive with plenty of attack. Being a single ply it's a bit more open then say an Emperor, but the dot helps to stop it becoming overly ringy like the ambassadors can be on some drums.

This head is my preferred choice for wood snare drums, which by nature can be a bit dry, so this helps give them some life.
For metal snares I like something a bit drier like a Powerstroke 3 or a Evans Genera dry as they tend to be a bit more ringy by nature so need something to control it. Though I'm sure the Remo CS would work great on metal snares with a bit of extra dampening using some moon gels or something similar.

One complaint I do have to make about Remo though is the quality of their coating. From my experience and that of many others recently it seems that the coating is flaking off very easily these days, with a few studio sessions enough to have the head looking absolutely wrecked compared to a coated head from Evans/Aquarian etc. For this reason I'd find it hard to recommend this head to anyone that's looking to play and gig alot and isn't able to afford regular head changes.

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!
