Buy Platinum 3776 Music Nib Separately?



Recommended Posts

I have a Chartres blue 3776 with a music nib and love it. I picked up a Bourgogne red Century in a soft fine a while back but the nib is not exactly what I was expecting. Consequently I dont use the pen much. I think I had much different expectations of the nib that its just not meant for. I do love the red though! I really would like to swap the nib for a Platinum music nib on the Bourgogne pen and save the SF nib for a different pen. The SF has its place but I would get much more use out of the red pen with a music nib. Is it possible to get a hold of just a Platinum music nib individually or am I going to have to get a whole new pen and start over? Also Im contemplating just getting a C nib and grinding it to an italic with a somewhat music nib profile. Theres a significant cost savings to go that route. The Century music nib is not springy at all so I dont think I would see much of a difference with a hard italic in line width/edges.

Someday the mountain might get em but the law never will.........

I dont know about Platinum pens, but, I know FPN friends who do. Just post your question in the sub-forum on FPN dedicated to Japanese pens, and folks who know about whether Platinum sells spare nibs etc., will immediately chime in and provide the answers you are seeking.

There are no Japanese brands that sell nibs separately. The best and only ways are to either buy second hand or the cheapest 3776 with a music nib you can find.

I've had a similar question on the Platinum Gathered. Want one with a music nib. To his credit, Brian Anderson offered to combine that pen body with that pen nib for me but the upcharge was a bit much for me on the day he made the offer (damn other purchases at a pen show!!).
