Great product, nice price  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
Even though i'm not a great CW'er i appreciate a lot this key. It's much easier to operate than the ones i had before.
Very heavy it's impossible to have it moving around the desk.
Mine comes with package full of accessories: dust cover, polishing cloth, a pair of spare paddles, a little "spessimetro" to set correct contact distance.
Last but no least it's a nice piece of machinery it's a pleasure only to have a look at it on your shack (especially w/ red paddles)!

Excellent  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I was impressed by the ratings given to the Simplex and the Simplex Pro, and I completely agree with all the "5's." The key was shipped and arrived when they said it would, it was in perfect condition, and it's solid and clearly well-made. My only comment is it took me a little while to get used to the longer throw of the paddles, compared to my other keys. I like this unit a lot.

Elegant In Basic Black  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
My Begali Simplex Professional arrived today. Right on the schedule outlined by Bruna Begali. As always it was packed perfectly and survived the trip across the pond without a scratch. The key needed no adjustments, and was set up just the way I like it. Fit and finish are perfect. If you are going to Dayton, you owe it to yourself to try a Begali key.

I now have five Begali keys in my collection. One can never get too much of a good ( actually great ) thing. My next will be the new Begali Pearl.

Cool  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I'm not telling you about the precision of realization or the pleasure of owning a Begali, this key has the same features and qualities of the normal simplex and if you want to know how it goes simply read the related review...

The finish make the difference. This all black non glossy key stands very well next the modern black painted transceivers, making a perfect "unisono" (sorry i didn't find an english word for this, it is like something that goes very well toghether). And it look cool and professional too. This kind of paint is also much less prone to fingertips, making it a perfect choice for the ones who care for convenience in spite of aspect. So if you are looking for an everyday paddle, and already have (like i did) a gold finish key to be proudly shown astonishing your friend with his beauty, this is your next must-have.
