LOTUS Artists performing with this instrument:
Feedback from Lead players, Jazz soloists, Orchestra Principal players and everyone in between is the same:
This is the Bb trumpet that you've always wished for.
If you are happy on a standard sized instrument and don't really need a bigger bell or any fancy bells-and-whistles, or if you are in a section setting that requires you to match tone color and general projection with others, the Classic is the LOTUS trumpet for you.
Ryan Kisor (Lead trumpet Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra) fell in love with his immediately when he tried it. He was surprised by how easily it played in all registers, by the tone colors available, and by how quickly he could feel at home on it. He was using it on the gig the same week.
