A fun, compact brass instrument, perfect for younger players.
Easy to play
If your child wants to play the trumpet, but are too small to hold one comfortably, pCornet is a great place to start. Designed especially for small people, it is shorter, so can be held more easily, and being made from plastic is much lighter (less than half the weight!) than traditional brass cornets. This combination means little arms won’t get tired as quickly; children can enjoy playing for longer!
The pCornet is fantastic value for money, costing around a third of the price of beginner brass cornets. It comes with everything your child needs to play straight away: a soft cloth bag to protect it when rushing about between lessons/school/band, two plastic mouthpieces (2b and 4b, although it is also compatible with any regular cornet mouthpiece) and an array of supporting online learning resources.
Brass cornets are easily dented, damaged and high maintenance. Because our pCornet is made from recyclable ABS plastic it is extremely durable and strong, and can withstand the inevitable rough treatment it may receive wherever you take it! Low maintenance and robust the pCornet is a worry free, dependable and fun instrument.
Progress with ease
Part of the valved brass instrument family, the cornet technically plays the same way as a trumpet. This means the skills your child develops playing the pCornet can be transferred to playing a trumpet when they are a little older and bigger. Or they can continue playing the cornet, the choice is theirs!
Includes two Denis Wick plastic mouthpieces (2B & 4B)
All plastic water-key
One piece patented lead pipe
Adjustable main tuning slide
Lightweight and easy to hold, just 500g
The pCornet is not just for young players, it is also fantastic as a practice instrument or travel cornet, particularly if you’re playing on holiday or in a more challenging environment.

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.
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!
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!

Absolutely fantastic cornet , sound fantastic and kids love it, nice size
Good quality. Bought for my four year old grandson to play alongside his musician dad really good value for a learning trumpet and sounds good as well
Perfect for the young cornet player. Light yet robust enough for some rough handling. Even my three year old grandson can blow some strong notes through it. Comes with two mouth pieces which the player can choose between, depending on the type of playing utilised. Great fun.
Brilliant starter. Absolutely fantastic and super light. My 5 year old son is happily playing away on it as I type. Great starter before committing to the next stage and higher costs
