Yes my browser went to Amazon.CA instead of .com. I found it and it can't be shipped to Canada
One thing I hate our Canadian $ is only worth 71 cents.

I sent Chapman a private message.
Sorry, baddddd habit!
https://youtu.be/NLAHSgZaMU0 I found this link on Long& McQuade website. Will be going there next week. Is the Ptrumpet as good as a Tromba?
I've only played the Tiger and it was good. Many on here prefer the Tromba and the pTrumpet over the Tiger. All are going to feel weightless.
I've never played a plastic trumpet (though did have a go on a pBone) but some TMers have, and have written about their experiences. A quick search threw up these threads:

The Tromba seems to be the headlining one so far as I can see, but the pTrumpet being newer may not have had so much time to be noticed in (at least I couldn't find a TM review).
Yes I do have a selection of Tromba trumpets and cornets. I can sell them for $225 plus shipping. Gold and silver trumpets and blue, red, gold, silver and metallic black (kind of nickel or platinum look) in the cornets.
I'm willing to ship anywhere.
For TM members: I will sell my remaining stock for $200 per instrument plus shipping.
Great chance to have a colorful alternative - or a nice shepherd's crook cornet for a sweet price.
The Gold and Silver really look like regular trumpets. Easy on the arms and back - travels well too.
Ok - I'll stop the smarmy sales rap!
I've gone over all these instruments to make sure the valves are smooth and that everything is tip top.
In reality cornets and trumpets are both the same length -they just twist the tubing (52 inches if I remember correctly) on a cornet to make it look smaller. Hence, think they are both the same weight wise. Of course, one may be easier to hold. I would think the trumpet would provide more hand room.
The plastic trumpet is a possibility. I know one guy who plays such on trombone and it sounds "fair to okay." However, at this point, they seem to be more of a novelty - just wonder if you would then always wish you had a metal horn.
