pTrumpet is the world’s first ever fully plastic trumpet – a fully functioning Bb trumpet, designed in the UK for musicians by musicians.
It comes in its own, smart gig bag along with a 3c and 5c mouthpiece.
pTrumpet is a truly authentic musical instrument that has sparked a revolution in the way the music industry thinks about trumpets. pTrumpet follows in the footsteps of its sister instrument, pBone, the world’s bestselling trombone.
pTrumpet is the only trumpet with a fully plastic valve system, which we have designed and developed to create unrivalled lightness, durability and sound quality. Our patented lead pipe technology ensures a vibrant and focused sound. It is tough, taking knocks and bumps in its stride – thanks to its precision plastic engineering.
pTrumpet is less than half the weight of a brass trumpet due to the plastic material throughout the whole instrument, so it’s ideal for the younger player and for all those who may have difficulty with the weight and balance. Its unrivaled price enables everyone to enjoy the quality of an equivalent metal instrument at a third of the cost. Happy in the hands of the world’s seasoned professionals, pTrumpet is also the perfect starter instrument.
We have designed fully plastic mouthpieces especially for the pTrumpet. Each instrument comes with both a 3c and 5c pTrumpet mouthpiece, you can also use any standard metal trumpet mouthpiece in the pTrumpet.
The pTrumpet has been thoughtfully designed to allow hands of various shapes and sizes to find a comfortable and effective grip. This encourages good posture and the correct hand positioning. The ergonomic features of the pTrumpet allow those with limited or restricted use of their hands and arms to engage with the trumpet like never before. It’s much lighter than a brass trumpet so arms don’t get tired as quickly or as often.
All pTrumpet’s plastic parts are extremely durable, our unique, patented lead-pipe technology and one-piece bell designs are extraordinarily strong. The pTrumpet is perfect in education settings, on the road gigging or as a first instrument because even if you accidentally drop it or bash it pTrumpet won’t dent! pTrumpet may not be indestructible, but we believe it is the most durable and robust trumpet ever produced!
pTrumpet is launching in bright red and a rich blue making it very attractive to younger players. Beginners can leap into the playing experience without the usual concerns about mishandling or damaging a traditional brass instrument. pTrumpet is light, funky, affordable and most importantly here to get more people playing and having FUN!
