I use Remo CS clear w/clear dots on all my toms. I find these Ambassador weight heads produce a brighter and richer tone than their coated counterparts, and extra durability than their clear equivalents. The reinforced dot area will not dent, but one does have to be careful not to hit the outer area too hard, as this dents easily.

The tonal focus provided by the dot means that I generally don’t need to damp the drums at all.
