I play tenor and alto sax, and just started clarinet, but my main instruments are flute and piccolo. I find that reeds dont necessarily affect the embochure. maybe after 2 minutes of a reed instrument then the flute wont sound as good, but wait maybe 20 and it feels just like normal.

at first, when you play piccolo, flute tone detereorates quickly. When practicing, start with flute, then switch back and forth, and end with flute. Trust me, it will get your mouth/lips used to two sets of embochure. Also, use more air with the piccolo, try not to always pinch the embochure to hit higher notes. It wears away at your tone and intonation. using more air also makes the embouchure closer to that of a flute.
