Wurlitzer K4 RB mouthpiece $120 US$
Wurlitzer M4* RB mouthpiece $120 US$

Dear Donald,

Thanks to your images it is clear the Reform Boehm mouthpieces are labelled as such. Do you know what the difference is between the Reform Boehm mouthpieces and the standard German mouthpiece? I own several Wurlitzer German mouthpieces (M3+) and assumed that they are identical to the Reform........but then they cannot be if Wurlitzer stamps them differently.

"it is clear the Reform Boehm mouthpieces are labelled as such" well, I'm pretty sure that I already made that point in a previous thread. I also have 3 mouthpieces from Wurlitzer that are identical to these two, but have no marking at all (given to the previous owner at the Wurlitzer factory, obviously prior to being stamped).
These ones have a bore that works with Boehm system clarinets, but my experience with other German mouthpieces (including one I own from Fritz Wurlitzer) quite clearly DO NOT. One problem with generalising about German clarinet bores is that most of the top line instruments are from small factories that may not conform to any "norm".

My confusion is that I have only had a few minutes experience with a Wurlitzer Reform Boehm. At that time I did not have my mouthpieces and just tried it cold with the equipment at hand (reed and mouthpiece of seller in Korea).

Also the current Wurlitzer website lists only two different mouthpiece bore choices and they are as follows:

1.German/Reform Boehm

2. French

So I assume that NOW they are identical whereas there was some arcane distinction in the past?
