Description

The pTrumpet was launched in 2014 and is the 2016 winner of the Horner's Award for Plastics Innovation and Design. It is the world's first fully plastic trumpet with fully plastic valves and adjustable tuning slides. Made from acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) the trumpet, at 500g, is less than half the weight of a brass trumpet yet very durable. It incorporates BioCote anti-microbial technology and has an ergonomic design to accommodate hands of differing shapes and sizes. Designed and developed in the UK by Hugh Rashleigh and Steven Greenall of Warwick Music Group Ltd., who also make the pBone - see AIBDC : 007871. This example is complete with soft textile case and two mouthpieces. The PTrumpet is available in a range of colours - black, blue, green, orange, purple, red, white and yellow.
