1L Trumpet High Compression Brass Lotus
Classical & Jazz superheroes to novices all agree: The vast majority of 1 1/4C, 1 1/2C, 3C, 5C and 7C players, find our L cup (or L2) to be IDEAL. Many players fall instantly in love with the gorgeous spectrum of tone colors and non-compressed intonation and auto-pilot note slotting.
A huge difference compared to similar cups from other brands is how shockingly open and easy your upper register becomes. For Classical players this means there’s no need to switch to something shallower for more extreme circumstances and/or piccolo playing. For improvisers, you’ll be able to take bigger risks with greater confidence. capable of producing the sweetest whisper or most frightening roar; both regal and nasty; with no-brainer targets.
Special Note: If you have always wanted a big 1 1/4C cup sound but need a more narrow rim diameter like the 3C, 5C or 7C, the Lotus L cup is for you. Achieve a full and rounded tone with better articulation clarity that blends perfectly in a Classical setting or for a big sound in a Jazz solo context, all on the rim that fits you best.
