Regarding the embouchure problem, my personal experience is the transition probably is as difficult as changing from B45 to 5JB, which is not easy neither. I know a lot of Reform-Boehm players who have changed their embouchure successfully within months. This happens everyday in the Netherlands because RB is popular there for professional players while due to the price reason beginners have to start with common Boehm systems. You mentioned the rising popularity of Boehm in Germany. To my knowledge (I lived in Germany for a quite long time), this is still largely limited to the amateur players world but not in the professional orchestras. Once again, as you can imagine, there must be a lot of amateur players who change their instruments to pursue a professional career.

Some people believe doubling Boehm and Oehler is absolutely impossible. Although it is not wise to double, please just consider the players doubling clarinet and sax (they are everywhere in US I guess?). I believe the embouchure difference (and use of air etc.) between sax and clarinet is probably much larger than the difference between two systems of clarinet (this example could likewise apply to the fingering, do they get confused?). Other less convincing examples are doubling oboe and English horn, doubling horn and Wagner tuba and so on. Don't forget the famous Josh who can play all woodwind instruments pretty well, if not so professionally. He must have a super power to change his embouchure insanely (from clarinet to oboe and from clarinet to flute, wow!!!) if you consider the embouchure for Oehler is "completely different" from Boehm.

In fact, some renowned clarinet professors in Germany can also play Boehm system very well. One example is Laura Ruiz Ferreres (please read the link below, she is not a native German but I know others by personal communication).

Paul, it is really a pleasure to read your post and discuss issues with you.
