Is it gonna affect my sound much?

So I bought a new snare drum shell (Ddrum Dominion Series 7 x 13 Maple). I've got a low end back up snare (Pacific 5 x 13 Steel. It was like $60) that I don't use anymore and it fits the specs of my new one. So my question is, will using the low end stuff from the old snare drum differ in sound from going out and buying new lugs, rims, etc.? I'm planning on buying new heads for it anyway, but I just wanted to know if I should use the old stuff or get new stuff.
Thanks all!

how are you going to use the lugs from a 5x13 on a 7x13? are the top and bottom lugs separate?

I would suggest finding some lugs a strainer/ but that fit the existing holes on the shell. It will look a lot better not too mention you'll avoid possibly messing something up. You might be able to use the hoops. But, if you are going to buy the rest of the stuff you might as well pick up a set.

Yeah I guess you guys are right. The lugs definitely wouldn't fit the new snare. So if I were to buy everything (hoops, lugs, strainer, snares, the whole shubang), how much should I expect to pay?

I would suggest sending it out and having it done.
Would be a shame to end up with some nice round firewood.
And I think thats the direction you are headed.
