I can usually come pretty close myself but wouldn't call my ability anywhere close to "perfect pitch". I wouldn't even try to tune a piano using my "best guess" for a reference without there being a really good reason to do so.

Thank you all for the comments! I get a sense that acoustic is the way to go. I will keep my dp for sure. I certainly agree with Bennevis, don't want to develop bad habits or wrong techniques if I can help it. Cheers!

Well, after much research, self-reflection and debate, I decided to fly out to check out the Bluthner 6. Just in the off chance that I don't like that piano, I would like to check out some dealers so I can try different pianos. Any recommendations? I

Using a piano as a reference is absolute proof there is no thing such as "perfect" pitch. I say this as a professional opera singer.

Chewy, interesting that your best results were obtained on one modeled piano and one sampled piano. Indicates that for your test, the method of emulation might not be the determining factor.

Warping can and does happen. A closed lid has the least stress, on the full stick, some stress, but the most stress occurs when a lid is on the low stick. Simple physics. I recommend full open without much concern for most pianos. If always left

I'll just add that if you make a point of playing songs that include piano but aren't written by someone who plays piano as their main instrument things might be easier. I learned two out of three Beatles songs I attempted with no problems. McCartne
