Default good cheap kick drumhead??

Hey everybody,

I'm a college kid and I've got a crappy kit on the side and I recently smashed through the stock single ply skin that came on it when I picked it up from a garage sale. I don't want to through 50 bucks or so at a drumhead for my crap kit. So, does anybody know a fairly decent kick drumhead that's around 20 bucks or so that still sounds relatively good? P.S. preference is double ply heads. Thanks!

Interstate Music lists the Evans EQ4 for a 22" kick at $33.48. It's a thick single-ply, about 25% thicker than the normal single-ply and probably 40% thicker than the one you stove in. Remo PS3s for 22"s are 32.48, PS4s (double ply) are 34.28. That's about as cheap as it gets.

You can't afford $35 for a new bass drum head? How about not eating out for a week? That's easily $40 right there. I have a friend who insists on Starbucks every morning - at $7 a day for five days that's $35. That's $140 a month just in coffee! It's all about priorities, I guess.
