I have never gone through a bass drum head.
I use two ply heads for hard play.
I always use a protector.
I hardly ever replace my bass drum heads. I keep them for years.
Way back when I was completely poor (and like 14 years old), I had a bass pedal footboard snap in half during a beat. My foot and the remnants of the footboard went through the bass head. It was some complete junker pedal that came with my CB700s. I did end up getting a Speed King, so all was good after that.
