I change mine right after the beater disappears through it. The last time this happened was a few weeks ago. My EMAD2 was sounding great and I was just playing and having a good time - then all of a sudden, my bass pedal vanished from under my foot.
For me, I can usually get about 5 - 6 months from my batter head, but sometimes my mileage may vary.
