BELL

Shape:  

  • Medium-Large Taper

  • Final Diameter: 140mm (5 ½")

Stem:  Yellow Brass  

Flare:  Pure Silver

This is the only bell we produce with an oversized flare of pure silver, and it has a very different sound signature as a result.  

The silver flare expands the boundaries beyond a normal trumpet sound.

As Marcus Printup's gorgeous playing conveys so well, the best way to describe this tone is that it’s sweet & juicy; rich & thick and also very shiny at the same time.

  • Machined in Bronze

Leadpipe:

  • Medium Weight

This is a truly unique and sweet trumpet sound.  As with every LOTUS trumpet, it's incredibly stable, but there’s an added level of flexibility and a different range of colors from the rest of our line.

Of all the people who fell in love when we unveiled this model at ITG '19, Marcus Printup is the one that we were most excited about.  Having such a well-rounded and soulful player choose one of our horns to define his voice is a very gratifying honor, and this horn's distinctive blend of warm fatness in the core surrounded by an icy sheen really fits his voice perfectly.
