Fantastic Plastic Instruments for Kids

If you're thinking about getting your child their first instrument this Christmas then you may want to consider getting them a plastic instrument. There is a whole host of instruments made from plastic that offer a great sound whilst being resilient and lightweight enough for everyday use with young children. Most come available in bright, colourful options making these fantastic instruments that bit more fun.

1. The pTrumpet

pTrumpet Plastic B♭ Trumpet

The Jiggs pTrumpet is a fully functional B♭ trumpet that is made entirely from plastic. The pTrumpet is a great first instrument for young children and a fantastic introduction into playing a brass instrument. Because it is made from 100% plastic it is much lighter and comes at a much cheaper price tag than a brass equivalent. 

It comes in an array of fun colours and is available on our rent to buy plans - click here to find out more!

2. The pBone

pBone Plastic B♭ Tenor Trombone

The Jiggs pBone Plastic B♭ Tenor Trombone was the first plastic instrument from our selection to hit the scene and has been incredible popular since. The pBone offers a fully functioning trombone made from ABS plastic and is half the weight of a standard trombone. Unlike standard trombones the pBone is incredibly resilient, it is not sensitive to temperature and humidity and is 100% waterproof, making it ideal for practise in all weather!

pBone Plastic E♭ Alto Trombone

For very young children we also have the pBone Plastic E♭ Alto Trombone. This is a mini alto trombone made from ABS plastic. As it is a smaller alto instrument it is even more lightweight than the pBone Tenor weighing just 500g and has a shorter slide which is ideal for young children with limited reach. 

The pBone Plastic B♭ Tenor Trombone is available in 8 fun colours.
The pBone Plastic E♭ Alto Trombone comes in red and blue.
Both are available on our rent to buy plans - click here to find out more!
