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

What our partners say

  • Partnering with Biocote was a simple decision: to be able to show our customers we use a proven supplier with knowledge in this specialist area and allows us to combine our expertise and provide the market with new and exciting solutions. The antimicrobial feature for our cable management systems allowed us to differentiate ourselves with PVC trunking in the Health and Education sectors, key markets for REHAU.

  • Working with Biocote was a step forward in being able to supply antimicrobial cable management products into the industry. REHAU would recommend Biocote to other companies, they have provided us great technical support, especially when we started trialling and testing the effectiveness of the antimicrobial material. They also provided great marketing support to help showcase our solutions.

  • We launched our antimicrobial chair range initially to add a genuine USP to our customers, but quickly extended our ranges into tables and storage units. Our products are primarily used in schools where children's immune system has not quite developed fully, so our antimicrobial range not only benefits the pupils, but also the school, too. The expertise and advice given is streets ahead of the other antimicrobial companies that we contacted, plus we especially liked the excellent marketing support and documentation available via the partner portal.
