I do a lot of my wood shedding in my home studio on my actual recording and touring kit. I feel it helps me to get around the kit better when I practice on my big kit. You just start practicing things on the entire kit and using all the voices you have. Then you can apply them to different styles of music. Using rudiments on the entire kit not just the snare or practice pad. I take the Thomas Lang approach to the kit when I practice. And sometimes I just record it in the studio to listen back and analyze what was just going on.
