Just curious what you think the acceptable time is for a drummer to set up, mic and wire-up a basic 4-piece kit with 3 cymbals and hi-hat. Our current drummer is a good drummer and a great guy but it seems like he takes forever to set up his kit. I've never put a watch on him but I'm sure it's upwards of a half hour on some gigs. It's gotten to be somewhat of a running joke within the band but sometimes it's a little annoying. To his credit he handles all his own micing, has a good cabling system etc. But I've played with drummers with a lot more kit who are up and running faster. And maybe my perspective is skewed since I can get my own gear up and running in 5 mins. Thoughts?
