The Studio 44 is a very popular model of the Underwood-Olivetti typewriters. Longer than most typewriters so it is a better desk typewriter rather than a true portable. Fabulous for active writers. I recommend this for adult users as it is harder for those with smaller hands. Larger typeface (10 cpi). A great option for active writers. Larger than most “portable” typewriters, this lovely fella needs a nice space in a writer’s nook – ready to bring out all your creativity! Suitable for heavy use.

The ribbon spools are a specialty. We have rolled fresh ribbon on it. When you need more ribbon on your spools, select the CUSTOM RIBBON option and send us the spools. We’ll re-roll them for you.

performance review: Feels fantastic! It does prefer a heavier hand (i.e. longer fingers). You’ll notice the type sheet shows uneven impressions. That’s due to my fingers not being strong enough to hit the keys firmly. it types very well and felt amazing but I have tiny fingers 😏.

No issues were detected. The carriage was smooth (no grinding), the keystroke was very nice.

Serviced, cleaned, tested, new ribbon installed, demo & tutorial videos. Be sure to watch the demo video so you can see how it performs!
