    Best score pad brand?

    I've been using my school bookstore's 16-staff score pad for a few weeks now and I'm about to run out of sheets. It isn't as nice as some of the other pads I've seen professors use.

    I would love to have barlines pre-drawn in my pad, but I don't know where to buy such kind for the same price-range as the cheaper pads (Hal Leonard's "Carta" series is nice and cheap, but lacks barlines).

    Any suggestions? These manufactures are hard to google for some reason. I know of judygreenmusic.com and Carta but that's about it...

    (on a side note...has anyone ever heard of the "Magic Writer" pencil by Pacific Papers? Just wondering)

    Snaz, my advice is to take one of those sheets to your local printer and have them print up as many as you want. You can add measure lines too. Believe me you'll save tons of money doing this. I used to buy pads and paper from Associated Music Copy Service in NYC but, with the advent of computers and on-demand printing, either making and printing the manuscript blanks yourself or photocopying existing blank manuscript became the way to go.

    I now have PDF files of all of my manuscipt forms so that I can print 'em up at a moment's notice.

    I'm sure others will have more ideas for you as well.
    In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice there is.

    My suggestion would have been Judy Green Music. Fax them and they will send you a nice catalog.

    So if I were to make a template and take it to a local printer to be copied many times, would "tabloid" be an ideal size? (17" x 11") For 16 staves, 8 bars, that is.
