i've read several posts where people assume that smoother inside surfaces will enhance resonance and therefore sound better. well, i make alto flute headjoints out of wood and plastic and a smooth interior sounds different but not necessarily better.

others say that you need to have an impartial listener help you decide what sounds better. the trombone listserve extensively went through that discussion (yes i play low brass as well) and they decided that if you need someone else to judge the tone, there isn't enough difference for you to be concerned. so play what YOU prefer.
