We describe a pulsed single-mode dye laser whose output characteristics satisfy the stringent requirements of coherent control experiments. This simple, low cost laser exhibits 1.6X transform-limited frequency performance with a single-shot linewidth of 58 MHz, and a time averaged linewidth of 240 MHz. The spatial mode is nearly Gaussian and has a beam quality parameter M2=1.2. We modified the pulse shape using saturable absorption in the dye amplifier. The resultant pulses are temporally smooth and have a duration of approximately 20 ns.
