Intoducing the pTrumpet hyTech
Building on the success of the plastic pTrumpet, Warwick Music have released the innovative hybrid pTrumpet hyTech. This trumpet combines metal and plastic to create a high-performing, authentic musical instrument, which still maintains the lightweight, robust and affordable features of the pTrumpet.
Its carefully engineered design develops the use of an ABS plastic body and includes stainless steel lined plastic pistons, a brass and polymer hybrid valve block and lead pipe, and a silver-plated metal mouthpiece. The trumpet also features metal water keys, with silicon seals on the main and 3rd valve tuning slides, as well as aluminium top and bottom valve caps, stems and contoured finger buttons.
The hyTech is compatible with any standard trumpet mouthpiece and comes complete with a 7C Silver plated brass mouthpiece as well as a padded gig bag.
Innovative design, Great sound
The trumpet is incredibly responsive, with a free-blowing, open feel, and the innovative design is engineered to produce sound of a high standard, with accurate intonation. Its robust design means that the pTrumpet hyTech is ideal for use in any setting and suitable for all kinds of performance activities.
Despite its impressive durability, the hyTech is exceptionally lightweight, making it perfect for players who find difficulty with the weight and balance of a regular trumpet. The light design also aids and encourages good technique and posture.
It is also very easy to keep clean and maintain; you only need to use warm water and traditional slide creams or oils. This no-fuss maintenance style makes these trumpets ideal not only for beginners, but also group classes and school music sessions.
It is supplied with plastic mouthpieces and a gigbag, but the bore will accept a traditional metal mouthpiece.

pInstruments and the environment
pInstruments are serious about making music fun and accessible for all, but are also conscious and considerate of how their processes can effect the environment.
Working hard to reduce their environmental impact, pInstruments can proudly announce they are completely carbon neutral - but that is not all.
Here is how pInstruments consider the "3 R's" into all of their processes to further reduce their environmental impact -
- All instruments are made using ABS plastic, using much less resources than the manufacture of traditional brass instruments.
- Every time pInstruments make an instrument out of plastic rather than brass, the amount of carbon is reduced considerably
- Since 2010, pInstruments have saved 2,8333,247 kg's of CO2
- The beauty of ABS, is that any excess materials left over from the process can simply be melted down and re-used!
- pInstruments are pretty indestructible, but in the case of a broken instrument, they can provide many replacement parts.
- If you have an instrument you are no longer using, why not pass it onto a friend. This reduces waste with the added bonus of sharing and encouraging music with others.
- pInstruments are recyclable under group 7, and can be recycled at certain central locations or by recycling specialists.
- Contact your local recycling centre for advice
