Default Putting the same head on a different snare?

i got an emperor x and put it on my stock tama snare, but i took it off after about a week. I recently got a 6.5x14 tama metalworks snare and i want to put the emperor x on there, but i heard somewhere that heads mold themselves to a drum's shape. Would there be any problem with putting the old emperor x on the new snare?

thanks!

I've swapped heads around diff. drums on many occasions. Never a problem. Provided the head is not shot, swap away.

If you didn't detune the head by doing the opposite-lug method, it may have a problem. Just speculation

Many people do and get away with it, I don't. You're correct, the head does mold itself over the bearing edge of the drum. I definitely wouldn't use a used 14" snare batter on a 14" tom.

Just go ahead and do it. What have you got to lose?
