Wear and tear drumming on midi keyboards

I just broke a key on my midi keyboard (Korg Nanokey) for the second time (first time was another keyboard), banging out some drums for a track. I don't even hit that hard. So it got me wondering, how common is this?
What are your experiences? Do you often break keys when using em for drums?

Never broke a key in 25 years except for during a couple of live shows when I hit the keys with my fist.

Never. I treat my equipment with more respect than i do my females.

Many.

Back in the day I broke M1 keys quite regularly, plus the keybeds on 2 ESQ-1s. (Crappy design - keys were stronger than the keybed)

Snapped the bottom C on an Emulator II and a bunch of contacts on an OBXa.

I got pretty adept at replacing them though.
