Anyone have a source or even an updated version of a database of this info? Thanks.

I don't know how many top pipers play cane but I think that a first-class setup with cane is still hard to beat. I started with cane in the 1970's and am now returning to cane since I tested Yves Tison "MacTy's" custom-made reeds - none of my pipes being standard he adapts size, length and strength to the individual specs and pitch of the set. The reeds still need time to settle but patience is rewarded with a full sound and rich overtones.
