When we went to a double on the tandem with a 11-34 cassette I was unsure if I could put up with the jumps as we were using a 11-23 or 12-25 with a triple before. What I discovered is the tandem is more suited to a wide range cassette than a single. This is because of the greater speed variations that you get. With a close cassette you are quite often going through 2 or 3 gears at a time so the wider range reduces the amount of shifting which I like. The only time I miss 1 tooth jumps is for flat time trialing where I like to have a 13,14,15 available.
