Cornet for Kids

pCornet has been designed with younger players in mind. The compact design is perfect for little hands, shorter in length than a traditional cornet and much lighter.

Colour Your Cornet

pCornet is available in red or blue colours, giving players a chance to express themselves. It's easy to keep it looking shiny too: you can clean the exterior with warm, soapy water!

The Complete Package

Every pCornet comes with two mouthpieces (2B and 4B, although it is also compatible with any regular cornet mouthpiece) and a soft cloth bag. There is also access to an array of supporting online learning resources.

First Cornet, Then Trumpet?

The cornet plays in a very similar way to the trumpet and is also pitched in Bb. The lightweight but robust pCornet makes this pathway even more smoother - which is why pCornet is trusted by educators across the globe.

Sustainable Instruments

All of the cornet, less of the carbon

pCornet has a compact size...and a smaller carbon footprint than brass cornets.

The process to manufacture brass cornets can involve some rather nasty materials like nickel and lead. Our ABS design requires less energy to manufacture, is lighter for transport, and it's fully recyclable too. 

Like all of our pInstruments, pCornet is proud to be carbon-neutral. As a company, we also offset our carbon through a number of projects.
