Default Re: Snare head...CS dot versus Perimeter muffling

To add on to Al's post- basically, a powerstroke will give you a shorter note and deaden your ghost notes if they're on the edge. A CS will thicken your center sound (though IMO they decrease the volume subtly, since they are technically muffling the head) while still leaving all the overtones around the edge- even accentuating them since you have less lower tones from the center to balance out the spread.
