This bell is inspired by the popular 37 shape, but we’ve worked our magic on the taper and optimized the intonation.​

  • Lightweight

  • Machined in Brass

  • 0.6mm (.024") wall thickness

Our leadpipes are machined from a solid rod, to the highest standard of accuracy.  This is a rare and difficult manufacturing process, but it’s worth the extra effort — You get greater note stability and stronger projection.


Available with 3 Slide Options:

  • Yellow Brass – Most flexible note targets with a traditional sound

  • Phosphor Bronze – Gives more stability and a richer, fuller sound

  • Nickel Silver – Locks you into the notes and enhances brightness

    The material of the tuning slide matters, a lot.  It greatly affects the sound & feel of the horn. If you haven’t experienced this before, you’ll certainly will once you try them.

  • Light

  • Heavy

Bottom Caps

  • Light

  • Medium

  • Heavy  

Each trumpet comes with:
- Light weight top caps

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.
