 A bit of history....

Knowing nothing about the Albert and Oehler systems, I turned to the Google machine for a little information on these systems as well as the history of Wurlitzer.

I found this to be interesting since I play a Uebel:

Oskar Oehler had three students: F. Arthur Uebel, Ludwig Warschewski and K.F. Todt. Uebel[2] and Todt are legendary clarinet makers in Germany, while Warschewski moved to Stockholm and became the solo clarinetist of Stockholm Philharmonic. Warschewski bought semi-finished Uebel clarinets and worked on the bore and mechanics. His clarinets are used by famous clarinetists like Dieter Klöcker. Uebel clarinets were used by Karl Leister when he first joined the Berlin Philharmonic; later he changed to Wurlitzer. Wurlitzer clarinets[3] made before the 1970s sounded very much like the Uebel clarinets while the bigger bore gave them better intonation. After the 1970s, Wurlitzer made some modifications to their design. Wurlitzer clarinets are now used in the great majority of German orchestras. They are very expensive, but some Wurlitzer apprentices are producing similar clarinets for less.
