I agree with Dave. I've overhauled several B&Hs, and the Edgware is no different, (in terms of pitch).
Generally mouthpieces don't change the pitch. The lay may make a different reed necessary than the one normally used, which can cause problems with pitch because the player isn't applying the required embouchure adjustments.
The wider the bore, the more harmonics can be sounded. The pitch is determined by the length. This is over-simplifying things. Tone and pitch are determined by no one single factor !
