Default Pro soloists using new Henderson chanter?

I was wondering how many of the new Peter Henderson chanters are being played on the boards by professional or open solo competitors.

Any YouTube links would be appreciated. Thanks! Richard

And just for contrast, here he is a year earlier in the same room, same pipes, same event (MSR-HJ) but with a McCallum McC2 chanter instead of the P Henderson chanter: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W3EOzjnTIRU

Well, all things being equal between those two videos (obviously they are not), I'm very glad I bought a Henderson chanter today. And Stuart Liddell is the bomb diggity.

The recording of Jori playing the MC2 is not the same quality of recording. It lacks high frequency.

There were several pipers using the PH chanter at Oban and Inverness who featured in the prize lists.

Stuart Liddell
Jori Chisholm
Jamie Forrester
Myself

I have created a Facebook page for Hardies where I have added some videos of pipers playing the chanter. Search for RG Hardie and you should find it. Any problems let me know.

Cheers

Didn't find anything on Facebook, but found the RG Hardie twitter which has a lot of links to recordings on it:
