Lotus 3XL Gen 2

XL Cup

Classical players and Jazzers alike: If you’ve ever fallen in love with your sound on a B cup but decided against using it because it felt restrictive in the upper register or limited your endurance, we have cracked the code!


Our XL cup is particularly useful for orchestral players; especially the 1XL & 2XL. This mouthpiece lets you maintain a sweet sound with tremendous core, but holds off on the brilliance until you start playing at or above forte. This can really help you to blend within the ensemble and avoid getting “the hand” from the conductor.  It’s also great for helping you ace all the articulation qualities the repertoire demands with ease. 


Jazz players:  This mouthpiece instantly adds a very warm, thick, sophisticated sound to your ballad playing or any other playing with a gentle approach related to Chet Baker, Blue Mitchell, etc.  Don’t worry about using a heavy or large-bore trumpet before you have heard how much richer your sound becomes just by using this mouthpiece.

  • Rotary Trumpet and those performing often in smaller or older halls

  • Jazz soloists who prefer a warm and round sound and don’t often venture too far up into the upper register
