POLL: What percentage of pipers play flat sets?

A variation on "how many pipers are there in the world?". Best guesses:

What proportion of pipers play flat sets exclusively?
What proportion play both flat and concert sets?
What proprtion play only concert sets?

I guess I'm just a curious guy.

I answered the poll as both but what I have is a C half set and a D chanter for lessons. It appears there are more and more people with C sets in this neck of the woods.

I used to play a Andreas Rogge C Snakewood Full Set with extra in B nat and D wide bore chanters by Rogge.

Now I play a Andreas Rogge D wide bore plumwood Full Set with extra in B nat, C nat chanters by Rogge and a new D narrow bore chanter by Joe Kennedy.

Cheers

Ferg
