I just received a brass 1L plus. Which is equivalent to a 1 1/4 C. Having played on a Bach 1 1/4 24/24 for the last few weeks, while loving the sound and hating the rim, I can say that the Lotus is miles ahead in terms of comfort, tone production and tone quality. It also feels like the notes, mostly upper range, are not as high as they are. Very interesting feeling.
For me it’s definitely a keeper.

Hi,

I recently acquired a new LOTUS mouthpiece. Its a 2XL+ which is equivalent to a Bach 1 1/2B. I plan on making some more formal videos about it in the upcoming weeks, so if anyone has any particular questions send me a message.

Adam has spoken on a number of occasions how these very deep cup mouthpieces benefit from the 'LOTUS design' that makes the high register more playable than on other-brand deep cup mouthpieces.

I won't pass too much comment on this yet, but for those who are interested; here is a short clip (after a couple of hours acclimation on day 1) demonstrating a three octave range on the mouthpiece. For a 1/2B equivalent, I was impressed.

Thanks

How do these differ from Monette mouthpieces ?

I can’t comment on this as I have never played a Monette. But they both seem to claim the same benefits.
