Ink Review: Diamine Music Gift Set: Wagner

 Share

Recommended Posts

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.

Same here!

 

Thanks for a nice review :)

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

I'm sorry I was in a rush when I was skimming over your post and misread it. Thanks for the info and great job on the ink review

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

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
