    It'd say the white marks are normal, however, cracks and peeling, not so much. Never used those heads though so Im not sure how they are.

          People care too much about looks. The compressed (NOT COMPLETELY GONE) coating on Remo heads has no affect on the sound, UNLESS you are using brushes.

          In fact, I like the sound of a Remo when it's slightly broken in and the coating is slowly starting to smudge or compress. It never "flakes" away or cracks off into pieces of coating on the floor.

            The way the OP is saying, it seems like it is cracking off into pieces, I guess we shall wait and see his pictures.

              Wait, is your Remo CS the clear one, or the coated one? I assume you mean the coated one, right? It doesn't really affect sound very much.

                    agreed


                    my controlled sound head looks like absolute dog balls, but it's still the best sounding head for my snare that i've ever tried

                        Yeah so compressed or smudged which happens often. The only type of head that I have seen the coating actually flake off was an Aquarian Texture Coated batter.

                        Just play and enjoy! The CS heads are great for snares.

                          Pretty normal in my experience and nothing to worry about until it gets the point where the whole head is too smooth for brush work if you use brushes (which is probably unlikely to be your main game if you are using a CS). I agree it is annoying when it happens so soon after a head change; could be a factor of how hard you hit, whether you have a doggy-paddle technique as apposed to the stick hitting straight down and up, how smooth your stick tips are and whether wood or nylon, how angled the snare is positioned, etc.

                          As an off topic comment, one of my pet hates is what Australian's call 'tall poppy syndrome'. Why the remo-bashing? This marking of the coating happens with all the brands, and remo is as good as any of the others in the top tier. I think the remo-bashing phenomenon is perhaps due to fashion? More trendy to support the less well-known eclectic brand rather than the market leader? ... Then pretty soon that new eclectic brand becomes mainstream and then it joins the ranks of the tall poppies that need to be cut down?

                            yea i dont use brushes at all and i do hit quite hard so it might be that. im pretty sure my technique could be improved but its not something i have major stresses about as long as im enjoying my drumming and not destroying the drums then im happy. my snare is titled slightly towards me and i use fairly heavy wooden sticks with wooden tops but they are a bit chipped here and there which i spose wouldnt help lol
