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

  • We chose to create an antimicrobial product to obtain a relevant competitor advantage in commercial applications (Hospitals, care homes etc.) with our wiring accessory industry. We chose Biocote as they were a recognised brand within our target market. Biocote had already undertaken a lot of awareness campaigns within the market, so it seemed an obvious choice.

  • We chose BioCote because we wanted the security of working with a company that would do more than simply sell us an additive or give us an unrecognisable trademark to co-brand our product. BioCote made our entrance into the antimicrobial market easy. They seamlessly integrated themselves into our business and have done so ever since, ensuring we have always operated with maximum confidence.

  • 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.
