LOTUS Generation 3 Mouthpieces
LOTUS Generation 3 - L2 Cup
The L2 is a C-cup equivalent optimized for Jazz & Commercial players willing to trade in a little bit of the warmth & width in their sound in exchange for maximum firepower in the upper register, and a more crisp, punchy playing experience all-around. Those qualities are especially pronounced in the nickel silver version, which effectively turns this mouthpiece into the L cup’s evil twin; a C cup that can become a flamethrower when you step on the gas.
If you’re a Classical player looking for the maximum amount of “pop” in your articulations, and super clear, almost percussive note divisions within slurred lines, definitely try this cup.
If you’re the type to play lead on a 3C, or a Jazz soloist who wants some extra help to cut through the band on aggressive solos, you’ll adore the 2L2 (Especially in nickel silver.)

A player looking for Bach 1 1/2C/3C/5C with a turbo boost
A player who wants the bigger cup volume of the 1 1/2C but needs a more narrow rim like our 2 or 3.
Gaining upper register access and increased endurance of a 1 1/2C but without the loss in breadth of sound.
In Nickel Silver, this cup lights up and becomes very nearly on fire.
