Better according to who?
According to you or whoever is doing the playing. Taiko's father is a good example of not needing to rehearse the known, it's like riding a bike. It's the unknown or freeform that needs exploration. Deminishing return is valid involving practice as well as the perceived dollar value of drums or instruments.

I was actually listening to Sirius Real Jazz yesterday and there was an interview with a jazz pianist. He commented that he had asked one of his teachers why it is that one night he's playing great, and the next night he's not. His teacher's response was: "that's why you practice."
