STC-2 mouthpieces are designed for the heavier monette trumpet models.

I tried a STC-2 B2 on my trumpet(Bach Strad) and it did feel a little restrictive in the upper register compared to a STC-1 B2.

Usually players of the heavier horners B937 thru B997 may decide to make their “lead or shallow cup” mouthpiece a STC2…. I know that Ryan Kisor uses an STC2 on his new B994. When I owned a B993, I had an STC2 for those times I played lead.
