Easy to play
If your child wants to play the trumpet, but are too small to hold one comfortably, pCornet is a great place to start. Designed especially for small people, it is shorter, so can be held more easily. Being made from plastic is much lighter (less than half the weight!) than traditional brass cornets. This combination means little arms won’t get tired as quickly; children can enjoy playing for longer!
The pCornet is fantastic value for money, costing around a third of the price of beginner brass cornets. It comes with everything your child needs to play straight away: a soft cloth bag to protect it when rushing about between lessons/school/band, two plastic mouthpieces (2B and 4B, although it is also compatible with any regular cornet mouthpiece) and an array of supporting online learning resources.
Brass cornets are easily dented, damaged, and high maintenance. Because our pCornet is made from recyclable ABS plastic it is extremely durable and strong, and can withstand the inevitable rough treatment it may receive wherever you take it! Low maintenance and robust the pCornet is a worry-free, dependable, and fun instrument.
Progress with ease
Part of the brass instrument family, the cornet technically plays the same way as a trumpet. This means the skills your child develops playing the pCornet can be transferred to playing the trumpet when they are a little older and bigger. Or they can continue playing the cornet, the choice is theirs!
The pCornet is not just for young players, it is also fantastic as a practice instrument or travel cornet, particularly if you’re playing on holiday or in a more challenging environment.
