The Remo Controlled Sound Clear features a black dot on the topside to give more focus and attack, while still allowing for a nice amount of sustain. This drumhead has a bright and full sound, with good projection and durability. The Controlled Sound Clear is perfect for toms, or as a snare drum batter head.
The Remo Controlled Sound Clear is made with a single ply of 10mil film, and a 5mil top center control dot. These drumheads are the brightest of the Controlled Sound range, and will give a good cutting projection. The thinner single ply construction allows for good responsiveness, with a nice sustain. The 5mil centrer control dot means overtones won’t get out of control, and allows these drumheads to be hit harder and last longer.
The Remo Controlled Sound Clear is an excellent choice for toms if you want a bright, full, and projecting sound, without excessive overtones. These drumheads also perform well as a snare drums batter head if you don’t plan on using brushes. They have a nice cutting projection and moderate sustain, with ringing controlled by the center dot. Tip: for brush use, you’ll require a coated drumhead – take a look at the Controlled Sound Coated.
As a resonant tom drumhead, the Controlled Sound Clear will give you a little less sustain than a standard 10mil resonant head, thanks to the center dot. This is useful if you want to keep some sustain, but don’t want the ringing to get out of control.
