I'm currently reviewing some of my favourite Diamine inks. This one is from the Diamine Music Gift Set: Wagner.

 

  • Bearing in mind the paper I use is very smooth, this ink dries in 15-16 seconds.
  • It flows quite wet compared with some Diamine inks, but lubricates the nib quite well.
  • No start-up problems noticed. No skipping noticed.
  • It is currently available as one of the gift set of 10 x 30ml glass bottles, or in single 30ml plastic refill bottles from Diamine. Neither of these has an inkwell
  • This isn't a waterproof ink.
  • Diamine sell it directly to end-users on their web-site.
  • It's reasonably priced.

AND thanks to you maybe I will be able to say I "like them all" as well!  Thanks for this review of one of my favorites. I only wish they would sell this in a pint sized bottle!  ( I could send them an old Sheaffer or similar sized "master" fill bottle.)

Thank you. As you know the colour well, can I just ask if it looks washed-out on your screen as someone has advised me it does on theirs?

I just wrote a line with mine & I believe mine looks closer in color to your "3 pass" swab of the Q tip.  So I think the color "in person" is a bit brighter but I surely wouldn't say "washed out."  I am going to use up the (Bung Box) Piano Mahogany I filled my GFV Intuition (Terracotta) as soon as possible to try a fill of Diamine's Strauss & hope that is a bit brighter than appearing in your review.  If that IS the case than I guess it could be "off a bit."  I frequently find the colors I use are different from the ones I see in reviews.  I have had several disappointments (Diamine Autumn Oak & Noodler's Habenero come to mind as NEITHER of them exhibited for me the colors that were apparent in swabs I had viewed) BUT more often some that seemed more vibrant for me.  I am sure the broader nibs I use & probably the fact that some of my pens are WET writers affects this.  But I can usually have enough image to determine a "good" sense of the ink's color.  AND the properties of the ink are often more important than color & I surely appreciate what I learn from reviews.

 

Again my appreciation for your hard work in making these possible.

Thank you. I appreciate your comments.

 

I think the one pass swab test always makes an ink look paler than it writes.

Does anyone know if there is a place where this can be purchased by itself without having to buy the whole set?

I put that information in the original review.

 

Diamine sell it directly on their web-site, but if you don't want the whole set, it only comes in a 30ml plastic refill bottle. You have to email Diamine to get instructions how to buy them because they aren't listed in the ink colours

No problem.  :)  Thanks for your kind words. I hope you like Wagner when you receive it.

 

I left this one until the last of the Music set for reviewing because I was convinced I wouldn't like it. I admit I was wrong. I can now see it's good points
