The design of semi-automatic keys has changed very little since Horace Martin sold his first “bug” more than a hundred years ago. The Intrepid, however, introduces a distinct new architecture that breaks this mold. The return forces and damping are produced by magnets for the utmost in consistency and durability. The single machined arm is held by precision bearings for reliably smooth action, and the design ensures that it always returns to the exact same neutral position. The precision adjustments are embedded in two gold plated “walls” which also protect the mechanism.
