pTrumpet hyTech awarded 'Best Teaching Tool'

pTrumpet hyTech, officially launched at NAMM 2019 in California, has been declared “Best Teaching Tool for Intermediate Students” in the annual School Band & Orchestra Best Tools for Schools Awards.

The award is a significant and early accolade for pTrumpet hyTech which marks a new chapter in trumpet evolution. Building on the lightweight, robust, durable and affordable features of pTrumpet, hyTech has undergone a rigorous development programme including feedback on the concept from professional players and teachers from the United States, UK and around the world.

The annual SBO Awards are judged by an independent panel of expert music educators who tour NAMM - which this year attracted more than 115,000 music trade visitors - secretly reviewing products in several different categories.

Our patented metal/plastic hybrid trumpet delivers a performance standard equivalent to high-quality student brass trumpets but with many additional pedagogical benefits for students and teachers alike – at lower cost than its traditional equivalents.

Chris Fower, Director of Creativity and Innovation at Warwick Music Group, said: “It sounds like a simple idea to take the best of plastic and metal and produce an outstanding student trumpet, yet beneath that ambition lay a host of extraordinary musical, technical and manufacturing challenges.

“I’m so proud and delighted that the hard work of our amazing development team has not only overcome those challenges but produced a musical instrument which benefits the development of all students starting their trumpet playing journeys.

pTrumpet hyTech, available in gold, silver and black finishes, is being delivered throughout the world, with UK availability in April.
