Default Need help with Remo black dot

I'm looking to order a clear Remo 14" head with a black dot on top. Problem is, I'm not sure which one. I had one on an old snare when I was younger. It helped that shallow steel snare sound like a deeper snare with lots of body. I miss that sound. I see a lot of clear Controlled Sound heads with the black dot, but I'm not sure if that's what it was or not. The head may have originally came off of a Tom. The other problem is, I'm looking for one with the Dot on top. I'm seeing most of them with the dot on the underside when I try doing a search. I have a coated controlled sound with the dot on the underside on one if my snares right now, but it's just not the same. Any one know of what head I'm looking for?

Ok. I'm just nervous about ordering it and receiving the one with the dot on the underside. I would like the one with the dot on top. I do have a coated CS now, but it has the dot on the under side. Is there a difference in the name to avoid confusion? Or, is the one with the dot on the underside just called "controlled sound"? Thanx.

according to the remo chart on their site, the clear one only comes with the black on top

You can get the CS head (clear film) with a Black, White, or Clear top dot.

I use a CS Coated with a TOP dot on a couple snares.
The Emperor version is a BE 0114-22. I use that on a few others.
I'd have to look at the box to get the single ply version number, but I just got 2 of them last month.

EDIT: CS-0114-22 Controlled Sound Coated Batter, Clear Dot Top.

Go here: http://www.remo.com/portal/products/3/8/49/152/cl_controlled_sound.html

You can click over to whatever dot you want, and get the model number.

After playing drums now for a million years or so, only recently have I discovered that the Remo Clear Black Dot head is the sound I love the most for snare drums. There's just something about them that pleases me more than all the other heads I've tried over the years. I think the sound of the stick hitting that plastic dot really makes the snare sound perfect to my ears.

I agree it has a unique sound, but it feels like @#it. Its why they came out with the dot underneath concept.

AQUARIAN Hi-ENERGY has two dots on top, both thin a better feeling head than REMO BD. Might want to try one, they're a nice alternative to REMO Blk DOTS
