LOTUS Generation 3 Mouthpieces

LOTUS Generation 3 - S Cup


The Lotus S cup is what we consider to be our classic/traditional Lead cup. You know the age-old script: “The ultimate lead mouthpiece! Adds extra notes to your range! Has a great, big sound!”  This might be the closest you’re ever gonna find.
This mouthpiece produces a surprisingly rich tone for such a shallow cup. Many section players will appreciate that they can more easily match your tone color without having to resort to a shallow mouthpiece themselves while covering the 3rd or 4th book. The sound stays wide open from the highest notes in your range to low F#. This is the kind of lead mouthpiece that other musicians actually like to listen to.
Classical players who are accustomed to using a Bach 7E or 7EW on piccolo will find this cup to be a good comparison. As with all Lotus mouthpieces, the tone will be more broad, the articulation will be clear and clean and the upper register will not go flat.
