Default Redpipe's

Just wondering if anyone out there has had the opportunity to see, hear or play a set of Redpipes ? I think there an interesting instrument just from what I have read in the ad's. But I was hoping I might get some hands on opinions as to there sound quality, and if there easy to adapt to after playing the real thing. Also if there would work in a Celtic folk band.

When I saw Gaelic Storm, their piper Peter Purvis used a Redpipe on every tune that employed pipes, except when he used uilleann pipes.

How was the sound quality? I have seen the utube video's of Peter playing, seemed pretty good. So how did you like the live version ?

I had a chance to play one at CH Bagpiping's tent last year. I was astounded by the realistic sound and feel...just amazing.

Sounded good. Allowed him to apply different effects, not to mention have no problem staying in tune... He had the set that looks like the GHB, so I'd bet 99% of audience had no clue
