If you get the free floater pearl piccolo, you can buy the opposite insert for it and have the best of both worlds. I've had my maple free floater for years and just picked up the brass insert replacement shell for $60.

I've had the 13 x 3 for years....great little drum, but I always found it limiting. It did the job well for a specific sound, but there are more versatile snares available.

Personally, I'd follow this advice:

for the same reason. Just buy a brass shell and you've got the best of both worlds.

Check out Keep It Simple's snare sound. Brass piccolo....that drum sounds killer.
