~~ SPECIFICS ~~

This is the ideal pen for a RUSH fan! It's not just a pen, but a collectible item that you will be proud to STICK in your pocket and RUSH to bring out as often as you can!

o DRUM STICK BODY. This one-of-a-kind pen was made using a limited edition NEIL PEART / RUSH TIME MACHINE drum stick, like those used by Neil on the current Time Machine tour. It is a pro•mark Shira Kashi 747 Neil Peart Autograph Series stick (shira kashi is Japanese for white oak) that was purchased directly from a pro•mark dealer. The imprint features the SUN symbol, which is one of the 12 symbols found on Neil's current drum set.

O HOW IS IT MADE? The steps involved in making this pen include sectioning the drum stick, drilling a hole down its center, mounting a brass tube within the hole, finishing the ends, turning down the stick pen body on a lathe to the approximate diameter of the pen tip and cap, and fitting the mechanics and plated parts to the pen body.

· Drilling down the center of this small diameter piece of hardwood is not easy and not all attempts are successful - the price of this pen, in part, reflects the number of sticks that were sacrificed to obtain the successes, as well as the time involved!

· The wood has been left as-is; that is, it still has the factory sealant on it, except for the small areas on either side of the imprint, which were turned down to the diameter of the adjacent metal parts and sealed in a coat of clear polyurethane.

· PLEASE NOTE: Any imperfections in the imprint are characteristic of the manufacturing process at pro•mark. Some sticks look almost perfect, but most don't - they are drum sticks after all. Sticks may have ink in places that shouldn’t have ink, whereas others may be missing ink (like in the lettering). Check the photos - they are of THE pen you will receive.

o COPPER PLATING. The bright copper plated metal parts, obtained from a manufacturer, have been precisely fitted to the drumstick pen body and are the perfect COUNTERPART to the copper colored ink imprint on this stick. Have a look at the photo of Neil's drum set and you'll see that the hardware on his kit is also copper colored!

o TWIST MECHANISM. The ball-point tip of the pen is smoothly extruded by twisting the cap of the pen clockwise and retracted by twisting the cap in the opposite direction.

o BLACK INK. The pen includes a Parker-style cartridge that contains BLACK ink. The widely available ink cartridge is replaced by unscrewing the tip end of the pen. A gel rollerball cartridge can be used as well.

o DIMENSIONS. The pen is ~5" long and ~1/2" in diameter (measured at the widest point of the pen body).
