pTrumpet is the world’s first-all plastic trumpet. We have used innovative design and manufacturing to create a trumpet made only from plastic. As a result pTrumpet has remarkable sound quality, terrific playability and looks really cool and funky. 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 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 all-plastic main, first and third valve tuning slides give you the flexibility of tuning that you would expect of any trumpet.
