Have a cheap millennium electronic drum kit that I bought back in January but the snare head has frayed, swapped it out for one of the tom heads and this one has frayed now aswell. Grrrrr. So I took the head off just to have a look out of curiosity and they look almost identical to an acoustic drum skin.

Is there anybody here that regularly uses e-drums and if so, is there any reason I shouldn't mount acoustic drum skins to an e-drum shell?

The whole idea of mesh heads is to reduce the sound produced by the drum, standard heads will be much louder.
I would have to assume that a cheap kit comes with cheap heads. Get some decent mesh heads, I use Roland and very rarely have to change them. Also, I would recommend using a new pair of sticks and only use them on the e-kit. All of the splinters/burrs you get on sticks from use on real cymbals/drums will go through a mesh head in no time.
