Hi, I’m Jonty and I’m back with a new video blog. In my last video blog I compared the pBone and Tromba Trombone. Well today I’m going to compare the pTrumpet and the Tromba Trumpet. As plastic instruments become more and more popular for all ages. I’m going to compare the features of both these instruments for you to decide for yourself who takes the plastic trumpet victory!

If you have any questions then please email me Jonty at jonty@normans.co.uk or call: 01283535333.

These trumpets are available to buy online from Normans and are available in bright and fun colours.

Tromba trumpet is currently available in Red, Blue and Black

pTrumpet is currently available in Red and Blue. With more colours coming soon

    Hi Jonty,

    Thanks for your review. It reopened the debate for me as I had these instruments when they first came out and the valves were so terrible that I returned them. Have they improved the valves or have you worked really hard on the instruments you tested to make sure they worked. I’m not fantastically keen on them but my pupils do ask!

      Thank you for your question. The Valves are a big improvement from what they were like when they were first released. This wasn’t a special trumpet they gave me it was straight from our shelves.
      If you wish to talk in more detail please feel free to contact Jonty our brass specialist on 01283535333 and he would be happy to give you some more info.
