They're as durable (if not more) than a common mylar head...but of course if you lay into them w/ bad technique, they're going to get damaged like any other head as well.

I had an e-kit w/ one and my Roland practice pad has one...it's endured many, many hours of playing and looks brand new.

thats an awesome kit!

I'd say really the only way to bust one of these heads would be to stab them with a knife. Mesh doesn't dent like the plastic we use on regular heads. Though, if you are a thrasher, I'd be wary of spending money on an e-kit at all, those roland pads can be pricey...

I've had the pintech version, which basically the same material, for years and years

They last much, much longer than a regular drum head. I've never broken a mesh head, or even had a reason to replace one, and I'm a guy who used to break sticks, heads and cymbals left and right.

In case you don't get a quick answer Jeremy, I'd say that particular TD-20 is probably somewhere between 6-7,000 with all the add ons. here's another way to go if you know your way around a soldering iron...

I'm thinking of building myself one really nice dual zone snare and sticking with the PD-8's that came with my TD3 kit... Jeez, its almost like talking in science fiction language huh?
