  • Large Taper

  • Bell diameter: 145mm (5.7")

Bell Material:​

  • Stem: Copper

  • Flare: Phosphur Bronze

This bell has a large taper throughout, which makes it great for producing a broader sound.

The final flare diameter is quite oversized compared to common trumpets. This combined with the copper stem gives access to an incredibly wide range of tone colors, all with a wide projection.



  • Heavy-weight

  • Machined in Bronze


  • Heavy-weight

  • Machined in Yellow Brass

  • 1.1mm (.043") 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.


Can Ship with multiple options:

Top Caps:

  • Light

  • Heavy

Bottom Caps

  • Light

  • Medium

  • Heavy Cap for 3rd valve 


Each trumpet comes with:

  • Light weight top caps

  • Medium weight bottom caps

  • 1 Heavy bottom cap for the 3rd valve.

This horn produces a full-bodied sound, complete with shiny overtones and remarkable warmth in all registers, at all dynamics. It’s ideal for soloists who prefer an oversized-bell horn and want the biggest trumpet sound possible.

We do not recommend this horn for Orchestral players or Lead players. The sound is simply too large to match conventional trumpets in a section.

  • With a deeper mouthpiece, like the XL or XL2 cup, you gain access to an incredibly fat and creamy tone quality.

  • Our M & M2 cups pair very well with this horn, adding shimmering fireworks, while the horn applies a filter of deep, saturated tone color. 

  • With our S, XS & XS2 cups, this horn becomes a beast, giving you an enormous sound for exciting upper-register solos. 

This horn plays with great stability and agility, and gives you wings to musically go places you’d never even dare to venture with most oversized-bell horns.
Played by LOTUS Artists Derrick Gardner, Kris Johnson and Jojo Streater.
