Default Head options for 14x5.75 Bubinga segment

First, the snare is a custom bubinga segment, 7/16in thick, double 45 bearing edges with a very VERY slight roundover only on the "apex" of the bearing edge... It certainly isn't a sharp double 45...It also has puresound twisted snare wires. I already have some ideas, but I'm just asking for some opinions on what heads anyone think would sound good on a drum of this configuration. Since it is a totally different type of wood than your run of the mill maple, I don't know if there would be something out there that would suit this drum, considering it's twice as hard as maple, 1980 on the janka scale...It has these insane high overtones that last for days, so I think a coated head should take care of most of that. Any opinions are much appreciated.
