MIA member and great supporter of the Music for All Charity Warwick Music has been declared regional finalist in The Spectator 2018 Economic Disruptor of the Year Awards for their innovative instrument designs that have resulted in a 15% increase in instrument sales…
Tamworth-based Warwick Music Group has created a family of high quality plastic brass instruments including pBone, pTrumpet and pBuzz that are sold worldwide. The company is one of only three finalists selected in the Midlands.
Warwick Music Group is credited with profoundly changed the declining brass instrument market – a sector which had remained relatively unchanged for nearly two centuries. Their robust, lightweight instruments, manufactured from recyclable ABS plastic, now make up a staggering 80% of all brass instrument sales in the UK. Some industry experts believe the instruments are responsible for a 15% global increase in trombone sales.
Steven Greenall, CEO of Warwick Music Group, said he was “honoured” that they had been nominated and praised the hard work of his team.
“Making instruments accessible for people of all ages and nurturing their musical talents is our passion and the driving force behind everything we do.”
With the help of a panel of expert judges, just one finalist for each region will be selected before the overall UK winner is selected.
