Feedback from Lead players, Jazz solists, Orchestra Principal players and everyone inbetween 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, this is Lotus trumpet for you.
Ryan Kisor (Lead trumpet Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra) feel in love with his immediatley when Adam Rapa delivered it to him in person. He was surprised at how easily it played in all registers and tone colors and that it took him no time at all to switch. He was using it on the gig the same week.
