Express yourself, naturally

The Bamboo™ Alpha allows you to write, doodle, or navigate on touchscreens as easily and naturally as with a regular pen on paper. The stylus's responsive rubber nib tip, and perfectly balanced weight, gives it a soft touch when gliding across the surface of your iPad or Wacom pen tablet. 

All Wacom Bamboos are made of durable, high quality materials, crafted with care, and designed for extensive daily use. The rubberized nib can be easily extracted and exchanged with our affordable replacement nibs, after prolonged use. 

The Bamboo Alpha has a modern, clean-lined design with matt aluminum and steel accents. It is available in black or white. Please refer to the specifications tab for more details.
