A fun and engaging trumpet experience perfect for beginners
Easy to play
pTrumpet has been designed especially for small people and, being made from recyclable ABS plastic, it is much lighter (less than half the weight!) than traditional brass trumpets. The combination of the ergonomic design and light weight aids your child’s ability to develop good technique and posture and means their arms won’t get tired as quickly; they can enjoy playing for longer and progress faster!
The pTrumpet is fantastic value for money, costing around a third of the price of beginner brass trumpets. It comes with everything your child needs to play straight away: a smart padded gig bag which is perfect for rushing between lessons/school/band, two plastic mouthpieces (3c and 5c, although it’s also compatible with any standard trumpet mouthpiece) and an array of supporting online learning resources should you need them.
Brass trumpets are easily dented, damaged and high maintenance. Because our pTrumpet is made from 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 pTrumpet is a worry free, dependable and fun trumpet.
If you do want to assess your child’s progression through graded music exams, pTrumpet is a perfect beginner instrument used by teachers to instantly delight and engage with children all over the world.

It's a lovely instrument and my son's teachers have said so too. A bright sound and a joy to listen to
I do a lot of busking around town and my girlfriend bought me a pTrumpet. It's amazing how much it sounds feels in plays like a brass trumpet. It's a real conversation starter too. Absolutely love my pTrumpet.
The pTrumpet works fine. I am a beginner and it is an excellent value for the cost. The valves and mouthpiece are excellent.
Best type of instrument for a beginner or for any player looking for a fun horn to play on. Good price, sounds great!
I have your pTrumpet and it’s awesome!
I just want to let you know that I am still very pleased with my pTrumpet.
The valves were working absolutely fine from the first tone. No preparations needed, cleaning, oiling etc. No problems at all, neither during the rehearsals or the concert.
My son loves it. Good buy!
This is a fantastic company that really takes care of its customers! The product quality also matches the high degree of customer service I have received. Keep up the great work!
Great first trumpet with real sound. Not a toy!
Very lightweight. Just what my son wanted. Fantastic
