Keyers & Keys

Alberto Frattini Marconi 213 chrome straight key

The Alberto Frattini Marconi 213 straight key
is rarely available used. But here is one
available now. Since this are hand made
individually, there is a three to four month wait
to receive one.

I received this key in late September of 2016,
(The date of manufacture is engraved on the
key), but was unable to use it due to a
prolonged hospitalization.

I also purchased a Begalli Sculpture Arrow. I
was hoping to keep both keys in my collection,
but I've decided to sell one of them to help
fund the purchase of a new sorely needed
computer for the shack.

I spent a few hours using both keys and
decided to keep the Begalli. Both keys are
great! The Frattini is by far the nicest looking
key I have ever seen with incredible
workmanship but in the end, I decided to keep
the ugly Begalli. The feel of a key is very
subjective and personal, so there is no "one is
better than the other"being implied here .

The key has had minimum use a few hours at
most. It is in like new condition and will be
shipped in the Frattini shipping box which will
be placed in a second box for safe travel. A
high end cable is included with a 1/4" plug
and "eye" terminals on the key end.

The keys is the latest version of the Frattini
Marconi 213 which has some changes. The
key itself is chrome and the two screws that
adjust the bearing are now knurled and made
of mirror polished stainless steel.

The bottom plate is now made of mirror
finished stainless steel as well.

If your looking for a world class straight key,
please make me an serious offer.

Thanks for looking!
