Reviews Summary for GHD GD907WS
GHD GD907WS Reviews: 2 Average rating: 5.0/5 MSRP: $875,00
Description: Extremely particular, a key that he cannot miss in a collection.
The presence of optic interrupters to the place of the contacts, makes it very efficient.
The principle of operation is similar to the famous Melehan Valiant by now present alone in the best collections of the world.
Endowed with two pendulums that handle to produce dash and dots, it is totally currently the only example to the world of an automatic key mechanic.
I apologize for my English...
Product is in production.

Bound to Become a Classic  Time owned: more than 12 months
Some devices are destined to become classic icons. The GHD 907 is one of those devices. This key is simply one, if not the most, beautiful telegraphy devices in existence today. It is a blend of both the classic and modern. Many telegraphy devices are beautiful but temperamental to use, and in my opinion, this is where the 907 really excels. It is both beautiful and a delight to use. GHD has clearly studied the maladies of other bugs and has produced a key with all of the appropriate remedies. If you want to be the owner of a device that is bound to become a much sought-after classic in the future yet practical and fun to use now, you need a 907.

FLAWLESS  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
Even if you can't tame it, it is the most beautiful key you've ever seen. It is absolutely flawless in construction and operation. I use an original Mercury paddle and when I decided to learn to use a bug, I thought this would be a great way to ease into the manual dashes; that will never happen now, this is as close to a conventional bug as I'll ever have to get to. It took a long time to get it adjusted just right, but now it is a blast to use. It is the most I've ever spent for a toy, but what the heck, what piece of gear gets more use in your shack if you only operate CW? Get one and you'll feel good just seeing there in the operating position. Smooth as silk. It is only, at least for me, to be used at speeds above 20 wpm, but it does yeild a good 3:1 ratio and doesn't take a lot of force. The photo pickup is makes it very precise. Now working on using a Cootie key, so far it is winning the battle.
