The makers of the original pTrumpet (Warwick Music Group - WMC) have released the world's first all-plastic cornet; the pCornet Plastic Cornet. This is the ideal instrument for younger players and for those seeking a great-value, funky looking alternative to a traditional cornet.

At less than half the weight of a traditional instrument, the pCornet is a lightweight solution for younger players just getting into music. It could also be the ideal instrument for street busking sessions or modern gigs where you need to stand out from the crowd.

Despite its all-plastic construction, the pCornet has a comfortable feel and a full-tonality, albeit with its own distinct voice. It has a special right-hand little-finger rest to allow hands of various sizes to find a comfortable and effective grip.

The pCornet is based on the traditional British Shepherd's crook Bb cornet, designed in the UK for musicians by musicians. It has its own cloth bag with a 2b and 4b Dennis Wick mouthpiece. The pCornet also allows you to use any standard metal cornet mouthpiece, should you wish.

The pCornet's clever all-plastic design features an innovative valve system, alongside a patented lead pipe technology to give it a vibrant tone that will really stand out. Adjustable tuning slides also provide a professional feature that you'd normally expect on traditional instruments. If you're familiar with the traditional cornet you'll be right at home on the pCornet.

pTrumpet revolutionised the brass instrument market when WMG introduced the original pTrumpet Plastic Trumpet, and later the striking pBone Plastic Trombone. These instruments became very popular with younger players and education establishments. The new pCornet makes the same technology available to young musicians and adventurous cornet players.

With the original pTrumpet and pBone instruments featuring a huge variety of funky colours, we're anticipating that the pCornet Plastic Cornet - in red plastic - will be the first of many new colourful designs.
