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....

Jack Lee - Shepherd 483
Brian Donaldson - Donaldson Master chanter 486
Andrew Carlisle - Naill 484
Craig Sutherland - Shepherd 485
Ben Duncan - Unknown 483* (see pic below)
Ian K. MacDonald - Naill 484
Willie McCallum - McC2 480
Alastair Lee - Gandy? 484
Bruce Gandy - Gandy 485
Roddy MacLeod - RJM 485
Donald MacPhee - Naill 481
Stuart Liddel - Naill 481
Peter Hunt - Naill 483
Alan Bevan - Henderson 483
Angus MacColl - Strathmore 481
Iain Speirs - McC2? 485
Greg Wilson - Strathmore 484
Glenn Brown - Naill 483
Alex Gandy - Gandy 488
Gordon McCready - Naill 483

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.

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.

I think Donald MacPhee is playing a set of McCallums.
