Created by a team of British musicians, pBone - the world’s first plastic trombone which has become the world’s best-selling trombone – has been awarded The Queen’s Award for Enterprise for its innovation. More than 250,000 pBones have been sold resulting in a 15% increase in trombone sales worldwide according to music industry experts. In just five years, Warwick Music Group’s team of musicians, entrepreneurs and enthusiasts became world-leaders and the dominant manufacturer of brass instruments created in recyclable ABS plastic. Their innovative approach has radically changed a sector of the music market that has experienced little change for two centuries.
