Tuning to 452hz

Hi,
Our Pipe Major wants to start tuning to 452. Is this a relative pitch or actual? I come from the land of tuning a guitar at A440. Im still trying to wrap my head around it.
TIA
John

Yep. I am well aware of Andrew and Piper's Dojo. It's a bit more organic for me though. The manometer is a great tool, but i prefer to hear the pitch shifts and how my breath/technique affects it....

Comfortable Formal Marching Shoes

Is there something any of you can recommend? The only requirement my band has is that they are black and can be shined. I'm an adult piper so comfort is key.
