 The WURLITZER -Reform-Boehm Clarinet is the ultimate combination of the beautiful, powerful sound of the German bore with the fast French fingering system that has been modernized to include even more altemate fingering/pitch options.

 Complete mechanism of 20 keys and 7 rings; automatic b-ftat mechanism (2 independently operating keys for register and throat-tone b-flat); 5 fork b-flat's available in the 2nd register; 2nd register fork g# mechanism; 2nd register f#-g# trill: 2nd register g#-a trill; left-hand e-flat key; right-hand rollers on the c and e-fiat keys; silver-plated key's.

 We recommend Vandoren German Cut "White Master" Reeds and WURLITZER C4. K4. D4 etc. Reform-Boehm Mouthpieces with German string "Schnur" or 2-screw silver-plated ligatures.

 WURLITZER Clarinets are pitched to play from A-440 (Long Barrel)to A-442 (regular Barrel) to A-444 (Short Barrel). There is no problem with either pitch or projection playing any WURLiTZER Clarinet in America or Europe either as soloist, orchestra member or chamber musician.

 It is interesting to note that the Reform-Boehm Clarinets was inventedover 50 years ago by Fritz WURLITZER, the late Herbert WURLITZER's father. It is often a contract requirement of most German orchestras that the clarinetists must play a German-System (formerly called Oehler-System) WURLITZER.

 Prices include 2 barrels and 1 mouthpiece per instrument. Delivery date is subject to change. WURLITZER guarantees the keywork, does not guarantee damage to the wood, will consider justified complaints within 8 days and reserves the right to make design modifications.
