    Question PlayLite Trumpets (another plastic company)

    Hello everyone.

    First post, long time lurker. I have been looking and purchasing plastic trumpets and trombones for the school I work at (I'm a trombone and euph kinda guy). I had a pBone and think it was great (value wise) but I have come across PlayLite brand and I am struggling to find any reliable information. I searched her and couldn't find any info on them

    Gear4music | Shop Music Equipment & Musical Instruments

    They are cheap, and the bones have a trigger! They also have euphs and Tubas. I guess my main concern is that they are too good to be true (30 cheaper then the other brands)

    They would be used in a Special Ed setting (light for students with physical issues, cheap enough that if someone with behavioural issues throws it my budget wont be too worse off) so I am not too concerned with quality of sound - and we have a few trad. brass instruments kicking around that players can graduate to if they enjoy playing enough.

    If no ones used them yet I guess I'll bite the bullet and order one to test (and let you folks know!)

    Hi Triastan,

    Welcome to TM.

    The PlayLite trumpet's bracing, valve tubing and bell seam all look similar to the Tiger Trumpet. Could they be the same?

    Thanks Mike!

    That was my thought at first, but the Trombones look different in design to the Tiger ones. I have just emailed the company to ask, I guess I'll play the waiting game. Ill post my findings when I hear back.
