NAMM 2016: Warwick Music Group wins Best in Show

Coventry’s Warwick Music Group was awarded the Best in Show Award at NAMM 2016 for its pTrumpet – the world’s first all-plastic trumpet.

The pTrumpet, which was launched 18 months ago, features an all-plastic valve system, allowing it to be played straight out of the box with no oil. As the lightest trumpet on the market, it is suitable for young players.

Steven Greenall, chief executive of Warwick Music Group, commented: “It may seem a simple task to create in plastic an instrument that is traditionally made from brass but, as engineers will recognise, it is not easy. Our team of musicians, designers and music educationalists are some of the best and we are delighted their hard work and dedication has been recognised on the international stage.

”This is a tribute to the creativity and ingenuity of our British design team. After winning Best in Show at NAMM 2012 for pBone, we hope to return next year to make it a hat-trick!”
