which loudest/projection for piccolo snare?

thanks for all replies - agreed brass would probably be the loudest piccolo, but I wanted to try wood, so now may get the 14x4 DW Purple Heart snare available quite a few places.

I thought I had it all sorted, then I discovered this:


so would that Stanton Moore 14x4.5 Acacia Snare Drum be louder more projecting than a DW 14x4 purple heart? Never heard a 14x4 DW Purple Heart online or in person, that's why I'm asking. Would the Purple Heart be a bit more muted, is acacia a bit brighter, more open sounding?
