Antimicrobial Musical Instruments

Warwick Music Group - pBone

About pBone

The world’s best-selling trombone, the pBone was designed by a team of British musicians as a fully functional musical instrument which plays and sounds as good as a normal brass trombone.

A full size b-flat tenor trombone pBone weighs just 1.8 pounds, less than half that of a brass trombone, making it an incredibly light and durable plastic instrument that is easy and fun to play.

The award-winning pBone has been thoughtfully designed to allow hands of various shapes and sizes to find a comfortable and effective grip of the instrument. This encourages good posture and the correct hand positioning. The ergonomic features of the pBone allow those with limited or restricted use of their hands and arms to engage with the trombone.

The remarkably tough plastic instrument can take knocks and bumps in its stride. Specially designed to withstand collisions that would demolish a traditional brass trombone slide the pBone features an 8 inch one-piece bell, gooseneck design, water key, and lockable, glass fibre slide tube.

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

Priced £125, the pBone is available from all good music retailers. Coming Soon, BioCote mouthpieces will be available to buy in the next few months. See www.pbone.co.uk for more information

  • Would I recommend BioCote to other companies? YES, after dealing with other antimicrobial technology partners BioCote has proven to be the easiest to work with and given us full support where needed as well as creating a full real-life case study using our products that has given very positive results for the world's first antimicrobial classroom.

  • We chose to work with BioCote because they are the leading antimicrobial brand. We explored other options but soon realised the knowledge, experience and credibility they bring to the table could not be matched. When customers purchase our products we want them to be assured the product will deliver in every aspect, this includes delivering superior antimicrobial performance.
