Piping Live has the Masters' Competition archived on its web site so you can watch it anytime. They've also archived the lunchtime concerts.

Okay here's what I've got, these are my best guesses. I may have gotten a couple of them wrong and if so please correct me. In a lot of the video it was very hard to get a clear shot of the chanter bulb and sole so I did the best I could here. I used the Blair App to take an overall average for the pitches listed. The ones with question marks are my best guesses, all the others I'm 95% sure I'm right.

All I have to say about this competition is wow! What a huge field. I would not want to be one of the judges. What a great contest to listen to. My favorite performance was Alan Bevan. Nice to see and hear him playing. Great Wilson was also a treat.

There was one unknown chanter where I didn't even have a guess, the closest thing I can come up with is a modern RG Hardie but I don't have one so not 100%. I got a good screen shot of it with the foot and the bulb but I have no idea. I don't have any chanter in my collection that looks exactly like it. Sometimes when pipers get soles attached it makes it very hard to tell who made the chanter....

Why wouldn’t Stuart be playing his own original Macrae’s?

Re: What the Masters are playing
 
I'm not sure why, but I'm pretty sure he plays the originals in the band.

Bruce Gandy - Henderson


Bruce was playing his 2011 McCallums, not his Hendersons.

Re: What the Masters are playing
 
Stuart has been working on a new mccallum chanter recently, so he may have been playing that. Or, he may have been playing the Henderson he's played for a handful of years now.

Re: What the Masters are playing
 
I think Donald MacPhee is playing a set of McCallums.
