25 minutes, but after a couple of minutes agonising over whether to put in the slightly more likely-looking word (MANTUA) or follow the more standard wordplay (BANTUA) I plumped for the latter. Usually this is a good principle, but not today. Naturally I think this clue slightly unfair but I seem to be the only one to have fallen into this particualar 7ac-trap.
Tricky but high-quality puzzle this. Fortunately I vaguely remembered PARADIDDLE from a brief spell trying to learn the drums as a youngster. I stopped after a few months, much to the relief of my parents.
