Okay: today I got my first shipment in from Swisher: the 1911M music nib demonstrator pen and my first ever set of Noodler's inks, black, nightshade, and zhivago. The inks are just simply put all amazing. Fast drying, amazing in color and flow. And the bottle though holding more ink, takes up less room than the smaller bottles, because of the great verticle bottle it takes up very little room!!
I wrote out my first set of papers for my sailor music pen in the noodlers black and will post it once I get access to a scanner: maybe latter tonight maybe tommorow, but soon. I give my overall impressions in it and the line examples, also I copied one page of one of my pieces to demonstrate its true capability as a "music nib" as it was designed for.

I have to say it truly works as it was supposed to the perfect nib for manuscript.

Then my third page will be the same as page two except I will use the dip pen nib the staff nib and show how that looks in comparision to the regular printed manuscript paper.

Just wait and be patient and hopefully it should be a pretty good demonstration at different music nibs and their true capabilites.

And if there is anything that someone wants me to demonstrate in particular I would be more than happy to do it.
Until Then....... :lol:

Okay I am having some major technologicall difficulties, could someone delete those screwed up scanned posts, I scanned and it looked fine then I put in the floppy and tried to put it up here as an attachment. Hopefully it will be up and running soon.

Hmmm, I'm just not sure what I'm seeing here. But, I'm really looking forward to seeing your demos.

It took me a while to realize what "music nibs" were. In my earliest fp days, I thought that, for some reason or other, they played music. Yes, I've admitted it now.

What I've been wanting to see is a music nib in action, so to speak. When one is put to its intended use, what does the output look like?

So, I'm definitely anxious to see your examples, w'06. Thanks for this.

(and here's hoping those pesky lil' techno problems sort out :P )

Hi Tim,

I think your images are too big. 2500x2000 pixels amounts to 15 MB files. The maximum is about 1 MB. Try to resize them to 800x600, and put them on your hard disk first, to make upload faster - uploading from floppy could also cause problems (speed).

Alternatively, send it by email to me, and I'll host it. Makes life slightly easier, because you can preview the message with the picture.

I also deleted your picture posts, for now, as per request.

HTH, warm regards, Wim

For those waiting I have decided to wait for the staff music nib and post it all at once, another thing I have noticed after use is that it runs out of ink fairly fast because of the times it goes to triple broad it will naturally run out faster. Still in love with it.
Until then: it has been in shipping for over a week now so it should be here any day hopefully any estimates in what Air Mail by Canada to Indiana will take it seems to take forever and I almost wish I went the route of Pen City in Georgia.

Hi Tim,

Still waiting with baited breath! :D

BTW, I mentioned I deleted your posts, as per requests. What I forgot to mention is that your pictures didn´t upload, otherwise I would have resized them.

Warm regards, Wim

My Sailor/swisher Magellan with the 21 kt music nib is a fantastic writer. I love the broad downstrokes and razor thin side strokes. I can even write with the nib upsidedown for extra extra fine writing. I still happen to like my Dad's Platinum Meistro 3 slit music nib. Very similar to mine but his has a tad bit more spring and his is a 14kt.

My next pen might be another Bexley with a Stub nib, who knows what the future will bring!!!
