I did a search on this, because I have never really known what the 2 letters surrounding the middle number mean. (ex: s8s). But most of the results I found were contradictory. I also went onto the Beechler home page, which unfortunately also wasn't very helpful.
So could some kind sould please explain what the 1st and last latters mean? I know they are probably facing lenth and chamber size, but I do not know in which order.
thanks

Pretty sure it's all buried somewhere on the Beechler/Remle site. First letter is chamber/bore size, all else equal "L" or large giving a darker, more spread sound, "S" or small being brighter and more focused. The number in the middle refers to tip opening, which you can check on their site or any of the other tables around. The last letter refers to the facing curve length, "S" or short being relatively brighter, "L" or long being darker. "M" of course would be in between "S" and "L".
