LOTUS Generation 3 Mouthpieces
LOTUS Generation 3 - F-XL Cup
If you’re searching for the absolute thickest, darkest, creamiest flugelhorn sound, look no further. This is a flugel soloist's dream. It unlocks a whole other level of depth and richness in high-end instruments, and breathes new life into that cheap old horn you’ve been neglecting since high school.
This mouthpiece seems like pure magic. Never has there been a cup so deep, with a sound so enormous, that still offers un-compromised intonation. And between brass and bronze, you get the added novelty of choosing your favorite color palate. Our flugelhorn shanks 100% fit properly into Couesnon flugelhorns. This has been proven true in many many in-person testing sessions.
Special Note: This is a very deep cup. Normally that would imply it gets so flat in the upper register that the “high C” is an entire semi-tone off, leaving you with the unenviable choice of either fighting like hell to make it work above the staff, or simply not going there at all. Well, that’s absolutely not an issue here. High C’s & D’s are still effortlessly in-tune, and the cup also grants access above that to folks with the skill and desire to do so.
LOTUS XL cup is a "very deep" cup that comes in rims 1,2,3 and 7 in Brass or Bronze
