The surest way to get an honest answer is to contact the man directly. He's actually quite nice.

I think his work is based on his old Leo Rowsome set.

I say 'based on' because very few makers make exact copies of these older sets, for tuning reasons. Older sets (depending on the age) weren't made to play in modern pitch so some adjustments have to be made.

But contact Pat yourself. He's a great guy.
His pipes are great too.
