This is a review of Artino Pencil Magnet with W Pencils from Fiddlershop.

https://fiddlershop.com/produc.....-2-pencils

I noticed in my cello lessons that my instructor has a pencil in a magnetic sleeve. It is really handle. He didn’t have that at the beginning and we were chasing pencils. The magnet pencil just sticks to the music stand. Cool. I was having issues at home keeping my pencil handy.

I found this item on the Fiddlershop site. I thought I had seen everything on that site. Missed this. I ordered it a couple days ago and it arrived today. It is good quality. I have it sticking to the stem of my music stand and it is right where I need it, whenever I need it. When I need to replace the pencil, I simply removed that pencil and slip another one in. It is a normal diameter pencil, nothing fancy that needs special order.

Would recommend this to anyone having a problem taming their pencil.

@Fiddlerman 

It is so amazing how this simple item as enhanced and made my practicing at home so much easier. It is just there and I can mark my music, or jot a note in my pad. The eraser is really good. It actually erases. Most of the erasers I find on pencils leave dark marks. The pencils thag come with this are really good.

I visit your site at least once a day. I love watching the videos. If I had the money, I would buy one of your violins, just to have one, plus to replace my two really cheap ones, $67 and $55, to get a brighter one for fiddle music. My cheap ones are bright, but hard to play, my good Doetsch (I always spell it wrong) is nice and warm and I love it, but a nice bright one would be great. When I win the lottery! 

But, yes, I love the items in your site.

I know I'm slow, but often I'll add items to my cart at Fiddlershop and when I get enough for free shipping I'll order. 

Well today I was going to add a Warchal Amber E string to my cart along with some other items including the pencil holder that was back in stock a month or so ago when I added it.... Duh... GONE AGAIN!

I guess I should complete my orders more quickly, but... oh well.

Put my email address back on the "waiting list" !
