1L2 Trumpet Brass Lotus
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 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 this mouthpiece! (Especially in nickel silver.)
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.
Choosing brass will help you maintain a perfectly homogenous blend within your section. And with bronze, you can reclaim the bit of warmth and width that’s missing compared to the L cup, while also adding even more note security.
