LOTUS Generation 3 Mouthpieces

LOTUS Generation 3 - XS Cup


The LOTUS XS perfectly fits the definition of “screamer.” The good news is that we have managed to create “very shallow” mouthpiece that has clear articulation, can still make a big fat sound when asked to and has super secure note targeting accuracy in the upper register. We like to think of the XS cup as a trumpeter’s guilty pleasure.
Anyone accustomed to using such a shallow cup will really appreciate the improved tone color. It is not often that a player can still sound big and bold on this type of cup only to be able to instantly flip the switch from Zippo to flamethrower without having to use excessive force. The upper register access is very easy and on target at all times. This is a great choice for anyone who has always dreamed of using a “very shallow” cup but gets turned off by the overly harsh tone most other brands create.
