Very nice ink, that has been reviewed before. Colorful, yet subdued enough to be used at work.

 

I made a mistake in not having enough ink in it to start the review, so the review is a bit two colored.

The first part, seems a bit dryish, when the ink was nearly over. When I filled it, it was very wet, and you can see the sudden change to a dark color. Towards the end of the page it evens out to a more realistic shade. I'm using a 0.6 mm JoWo stub, that is not overly wet, I think. Thanks to all the other reviewers before me to make me aware of this ink, so I got a sample. Will likely buy it on my next ink shipment from Diamine!

I like it. A legible grey with a touch of purple, very close to Diamine Earl Grey on my monitor. Thanks for the review.

Thanks! I'd say it's a purple with a touch of grey. I haven't tried Earl Grey, though.

This is my favourite from the Music Collection (together with Wagner). Really nice colour!

There are some really nice inks in Diamine's Musician set, and Vivaldi is certainly one of them; right between purple and grey, neither crazy nor boring.

It must be great for drawing, too

Ack, to me this color is dreadfully melancholy-inducing, shudder.  But it is somewhat similar to Iroshizuku Fuyu-Syogun which is my favorite Gray.

 

Thank you for the review!
