Set #1
Gillanders & McLeod drones, Kinnaird drone reeds, L&M bag, McCallum poly band chanter, and whatever type of chanter reed is the flavour of the day.

Set #2
Sinclair (I think) drones, L&M bag, no reeds or chanter at the moment.

2004 McCallum AB2's. Bannatyne zip bag with Ross canister system. Ezee drone reeds. For band I use a McCallum poly chanter with Megarrity reed, for solo I use a McCallum ABW chanter with Megarrity reed (but looking for a slightly more mellow reed).

I also have a set of pakistani parlor pipes that have been doctored up like Frankenstein's monster. Brass drone reeds. Thanks to some pvc plumbing parts, I can use my GHB blowstick and Naill practice chanter on it, with a Watson reed.

Kintail (x2) & Shepherds (all abw)

sm canmore (no zipper), sm canmore (w/zipper), sm Ross & Ganaway tube

Macallum poly (band)
Soutar ABW (solo)
various other kintail, dunbar, Hardie ABW.. for learning how to reed and such.

Drone reeds:
Duotones, Selbies, Rapier, Wygent single tounge, Inverted Eze bass, Cane, Kinnards..

Chanter reeds:
Ross Med, Harris med & easy, shepherd med
Basically, I'm still so new at this I mix and match all the time trying out things I hear and learn, and just try to build my knowledge base so that when asked my opinion (god forbid), I might actually have messed with the object in question. So.. guess that makes me a umm. normal piper?
If at first you don't succeed, sounds like a normal day to me.
