The Magnetic Classic, as the name implies, uses magnets for the return rather than the springs of other Begali iambic keys. The construction uses the same quality components found in the Simplex key, such as precision ball bearings and light-weight arms, and the heavy steel base and other components are gold plated. On request the base can also be delivered with palladium plating, and the black-silver of that finish provides a stunningly beautiful contrast to the gold plating of the central bearing block. If you prefer a more rugged look, take a look at our new Magnetic Professional.
Using magnets rather than springs for the return has distinct advantages, especially if you prefer a light touch with close spacing. As the moving magnets are imbedded in micro-threaded tubes they can be adjusted with utmost precision and maintain their setting over a wide range of temperature variation. The magnets on the arms are mounted close to the pivot which keeps the effective moving mass low and allows responsiveness at high speed that is unique for magnetic paddles. This key is certainly among the best that money can buy!
