LOTUS Mouthpiece Comparison Chart

For rough approximation only

Let’s start by helping you identify the closest rim equivalent to your current mouthpiece.

We offer 4 different rim diameters with a very comfortable, familiar feel, especially if you’re accustomed to playing Bach-type rims. No excessive inner “bite” which can hurt endurance, nor excessively pillowy feel which can impede articulation — just super comfortable, middle-of-the-road shapes that you’ll find quite lovely on the lips.

Here are some of the most common rim comparisons:

 

Here’s a modest attempt at helping you determine which LOTUS Mouthpieces may come the closest to your current ones.

Since many makers already offer their own charts in terms of Bach equivalents, we’ve also listed the same rough equivalents, which should work for most players. We’ve also included Monette sizes because of the number of inquiries we’ve received from players who were previously using that brand, and the fact that navigating the nomenclature can be a bit challenging.

If you still have any questions, feel free to contact us.
