Sailor's Music nib isn't the triple-tined "Music" nib that most pen enthusiasts equate with the term. Most writers don't even use a music nib to write music.

While many pen manufacturers offer a paltry 2 or 3 nib sizes for their fountain pens, Sailor has 5 standard round nib sizes - EF, F, M-F, M, and B. In addition, Sailor produces specialty nibs that provide the writer with special abilities that you won't find anywhere else.
