I noticed yesterday that PelikanPens (pelikanpens.co.uk) is now selling 2B nibs for the M80* range, in both two-tone and rhodinated finishes. There is a bit of a price premium, but nothing too dramatic. (For information, as nobody seems to have posted about it yet; no affiliation apart from having bought from them in the past.) Note to moderators: this is on the cusp of belonging here and in the Marketwatch section. I placed it here because of the specialised nature of the information. Please feel free to move it if that would be more appropriate.
Hey guys, I'm a young composer and soon to be college student. I currently write music with regular wood case pencils, but I'm interested in trying a mechanical pencil. I have heard good things about the Alvin draftmatic pencils and will probably buy one unless someone can suggest a better pencil. In music you need to be able to write thin and thick lines, so just one pencil probably wouldn't cut it. My question is what size lead should I be using, and what I should do about making the thicker lines because I don't feel like .9 would be thick enough, although I'm not sure.
