Liang Wang now plays his own "Liang" Loree model which all his students also play. It is pitched higher than the standard Loree Royals and Laubins, which are pretty flat. Nonetheless, he doesn't sound "off" in any way in terms of tuning, even in the recordings where he uses a Laubin.

Personally, from my experience using a Loree Royal AK, (relatively flat compared to the regular AK's/ standards I've tried), I found that the relative flatness of my instrument isn't the main factor determining pitch. By making my reeds inherently sharper at a C#, I can easily raise the pitch up to 442.
