The pen in the photos is really pretty, but i think that for me it would be just too large; I'm finding the Konrad to be a nice size for my hand.

Just in case Noodler's is keeping track, I'm totally on board for the Neponset. Music nib, big pens, I'm in! Can't sign up for the covert black ops, because I'd be the one shrieking out loud when we got to the workshop where all this cool stuff is located.

How much is this and where can I order. As a composer for four years, I need this in my life.
The sword is mightier than the pen. However, swords are now obsolete whereas pens are not.

Me too. I hope the Statue of LImitations hasn't run out. Statues usually can't run far, but it HAS been a while. :roflmho:

sirach, that's beautiful... makes us want this even more but....still beautiful.......

Thanks ... I just really want everyone to remember where it came from... the same man that brought us BSB (which I love BTW), skipping Ahabs (which can be fixed), and the like also has produced so many beautiful inks, a redefinition of "water-proof" for fountain pens, and by the look of what is sitting on my desk right now... hasn't even hit his prime.


oh yea... no affiliation what so ever with Noodler's Ink... but I could own a lot of stock in the company with the amount of ink etc... I have bought.

The Noodler's pens to date have been too small for my preferences. Both in pen body and nib sizes. But THIS is one I'll go for. Probably in every color he can turn out. :embarrassed_smile:

Thank-You Nathan

The Neponset with a music nib is absolutely beautiful.


and Thanks, Goulets, for selling Baystate Blue.








(PS, the fellow with the attached pen waited a long time...the clips were not right yet...the nibs still are not as flexible as they could be - but this is the kind of pen one gets from Taxachusetts for a particular type of label on a particular bottle of ink)


Glad you like it - even happier that you photographed it with Noodler's Ink (another recipient sold his to a Japanese collector - but I guess he needed the $ more than the pen ;-(
Working on making that nib standard for the Neponset, but at the moment - only have enough to match those labels that say "Taxachusetts"...as it is, that celluloid is limited and vintage stock (I could carry them in both hands there are so few)...once gone the "Taxachusetts" labels will cease as well. The nibs in the few that were issued in the art contest were cut here in Mass, because they are not cut that deep elsewhere (too deep and too radical?).




This is from one of the other topics on the Art Prizes.... one of Nathan's rare postings... from the sound of it, the music nib would be standard for Neponset.... HUZZAH!!!

Also... if you want one in the color I have.... buy more BSB.... (no affiliation... though I think my pointer finger is permanently stained blue...)

Exciting.

The original post inspired me a little bit. What was the original piece? I picked up my fiddle and played it out, it sounds familiar to both me and my wife, but we can't place it.

It also reminded me of my own personal tokens from my grandfather: My violin and my MB 149. This is a picture of these German beauties together.

Beautiful picture. Gorgeous Violin! The piece is from Holst's Jupiter ... the church music hymn would be "Oh God Beyond all Praising" if you go to this you-tube video ... ... the familiar melody starts around 3.06

This conductor looks ridiculous. I see no correlation between his erratic movements and the music, tempo, or anything going on around him....

edit: I recognize this! It took till about 5:00 but I've heard it before.
I loved my 7th grade music appreciation class. I called my teacher a few years ago (I'm 31) asking him about a piece I heard in there and he just about fell over himself that a student remembered anything from that class. I LOVED that class.

edit again:
Maybe my video and sound are just way off. The whole thing just looks and sounds funny. But he's still goofy lookin. :)

Now that you mention it, I think I did the same thing last year. No word yet, but I sure wouldn't mind a surprise email that these puppies are now in stock and available for purchase! :thumbup:
