I haven't played this exact one but I just traded by Yamaha Brass 14x6.5 for a Pork Pie 14x5.5 maple. The thing with brass is it has a lot of overtones, while I loved it when I tunned it way up, I didn't like the sound when I tunned it lower. I tried Remo CS, Evans power center, Remo Emp. X, Evans G2 and G1 heads. With all of them their was just a lot of overtones I didn't like and I really don't like to muffle more than a half a moongel because I think it kills the sound.
So I would suggest trying it out 1st. you might really like it.
