Antimicrobial Musical Instruments


About pTrumpet

The pTrumpet is the world’s first all-plastic trumpet. The fully functioning Bb trumpet was designed by a team of British musicians to provide an affordable, lightweight and durable alternative to a brass trumpet.

The award-winning pTrumpet features a 4 ¾ bell, a water key, the world first fully plastic valve system and patented polymer lead pipe technology for unrivalled sound quality and playability.

Precision plastic engineering makes it incredibly tough. Weighing just 500g, pTrumpet has been designed so even the smallest hands can find a comfortable, effective grip.

Featuring BioCote antimicrobial technology for ultimate protection against microbes, such as bacteria and mould.

Available in six colours, it comes with a fabric bag and will play straight away with no need for oil.

Priced £125, the pTrumpet is available from all good music retailers. For more information, visit

What our partners say

  • Initially our customers were sceptical on how the technology worked and if it was proven but with the documentation provided this has helped give the customer confidence that it works in a true real-life environment based on testing as well as laboratory conditions. Using the well-recognised brand along with excellent technical and sales support enabled us to reach into other markets not otherwise available, such as healthcare.
