If the majority of your playing happens in ensembles where you're not the only trumpet, this horn is guaranteed to fit in 100%. You'll get the luxurious playing benefits of a LOTUS, while effortlessly maintaining balance & blend within the section.

 

If you want a narrower projection, more like a traditional Lead horn, or you're concerned about blending in a section with a very conservative idea of what a trumpet "should sound like", We can make the final bell diameter smaller (130mm / 5.12") for a more directional sound.
