The guy can play or not play, and the drums sound good, or don't sound good. That's pretty much it as far as I'm concerned. And even those are just opinions for the most part. Chill, Uncle Larry. :-)
+1000 to that.
Knowing how to properly tune an a-kit doesn't make you a better or worse player of the instrument itself (but if such a skill makes you feel as if you have a superior work ethic then good luck to you sir)!
As for having an instrument that's easier to load in and out- well what kind of crazy person would want that? Next you'll be telling us you use your automobile to drive your kits to gigs instead of using the horse and cart like the rest of us!
Aaaaand I'll stop there.
