Authentic

pCornet is a truly authentic musical instrument that has sparked a revolution in the way the music industry thinks about brass instruments. pCornet follows in the footsteps of its sister instruments, pBone, the world’s bestselling trombone and pTrumpet, the world’s first all plastic trumpet.

Innovative

pCornet is the only cornet 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.

Accessible

pCornet 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, pCornet is also the perfect starter instrument.

Mouthpiece

We have designed fully plastic mouthpieces especially for the pCornet with legendary British mouthpiece maker, Denis Wick. Each instrument comes with both a 2b and 4b Denis Wick plastic mouthpiece, you can also use any standard metal cornet mouthpiece in the pCornet.

Ergonomic

The pioneering British design of the pCornet makes it the ideal first instrument. It has been thoughtfully designed, with a special, right hand, little finger rest to allow hands of various shapes and sizes to find a comfortable and effective grip. The pCornet is perfect for the beginner and really fun for the concert stage. As with traditional brass cornets, pCornet brings the instrument closer to the player. This encourages good posture and the correct hand positioning. The ergonomic features of the pCornet 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.

Robust

All pCornet’s plastic parts are extremely durable, our unique, patented lead-pipe technology and one-piece bell designs are extraordinarily strong. The pCornet is perfect in education settings, on the road gigging or as a first instrument because even if you accidentally drop it or bash it pCornet won’t dent! pCornet may not be indestructible, but we believe it is the most durable and robust cornet ever produced!

Fun

pCornet is launching in bright red 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. pCornet is light, funky, affordable and most importantly here to get more people playing and having FUN!
