Great, Thanks for doing the research.

My Go-to chanters are a 1979 McLeod of Forfar which pitches at or just above B flat and an older RG Hardy which pitches at Bflat with the right reeds. The two Gillanders chanters, which I picked up very cheaply are sonewhat flat.
The RG Hardie was my choice to play with a brass choir, a percussion ensemble, the enormous pipe organ and wayyy tooo many side drums foe a memorial service for a well known and respected percussionist at The Old South Church a few years ago. The organist was surprised that the pipes were dead-on in tune with the organ.

I can also confirm that the pitch screws are interchangeable between the Hendersons and MGs. So it sounds like the same pitch screws will work across all these Scottish brands- Ezeedrone, MG, Selbie, Henderson.
