So the 620 USD is including VAT? That means if someone in the US wins a spot, VAT will be subtracted from that price?
No, the board costs 620 USD and 520 euros for EU citizens.  ;D
I will update the IC to more clearly display that!

Would you be able to post any prototype pictures of the full inside of the case?

On it! Check back in a moment and I'll have it posted here!


Did you post it - I don't see it?

Pics are up!

I honestly don't use TKL but after reading through the whole thing. This will be the one. Love your attention to details. Finger crossed on 16th Nov for the raffle.

I will also be posting pictures of the silver prototype and carrying case once I have them in my hands. Should be in about a week!

I will absolutely be trying for this.

re: your mental health points, I totally get it. it's difficult and facing criticism isn't easy, easy here, but you've got something great and it's amazing to see a public buy for bias!  :thumb:

This is easily the best IC I have ever seen. I appreciated all of the details and revisions you showed. I am very interested in this. Beautiful.

Very nice. Just sucks that there's such a small chance to get one.
Also will the WB ever run? Look very nice as well.

The Bias is one of my most wanted keyboards on my 'grail' list. I really hope I'm financially ready for when this drops.  I wish you the best endeavors for this and all future runs. But please consider running multiple rounds of this because the aftermarket pricing on this keyboard will be brutal.

Definitely down and I think the price is fair.
I can tell a lot of work has gone into this project and I can understand why you would want to move onto other projects after you've ran this.
Personally wouldn't mind you running this again in the future with other colors. The colors and versions of prototypes and earlier runs were super pretty.

Hopefully I've saved up my luck through the months of skipped Group Buys to secure myself a Bias.
I wish you smooth sailing.

First time a board screams at me to get it.

Just the interior, which will remain unseen most of the time , is a mesmerizing thing of beauty. The Chromish effect of the weight, the recessed usb, the sideprofile...It is beautiful AND functional.
Maybe it is the little suntime or the weird suomi up there :P but OP what you did, to me, is incredible. :)

Hopefully got a W for this raffle.

It should work, but specifically on Iphones the invite link has a high chance of causing trouble

I remember seeing this board posted a couple of times on reddit and I've been interested in getting one ever since. Love the backstory and the meticulously thought out details. Best of luck to Baion, and best of luck to all entering the raffle.

Always loved seeing limited glimpses of this board. The red with the white infilled BIAS logo is one of my all time favorites.

Never knew the story behind it so it was lovely reading it. Glad you're doing much better than before too  :thumb:

Good luck and I'll hopefully be in for one.

2 Years warranty is required by law for EU vendors. It's not even mentioned most times because it's implied. Not to take away from the runner of course, always good to be open about that.

Indeed it's the perks of EU consumer protection! I want to make it clear for non-eu buyers as well that their purchase will also be covered by the warranty!

Prototype for the carrying case arrived. Pictures of it will be posted under the OP.
I will be ordering another prototype to test a more elegant solution for pcb and plate storage  :cool:

Case is a bit heavy on the logo, but digging the zipper pulls and the interanal setup from what I can see!

I agree! Will be tweaking the prints for the next sample. This one is already really good, but I want to try more stuff and see what people think

This is very subjective, but if I could pick I would personally prefer the script logo 'Bias' (seen on the front) over the current logo (which looks super nice (by the designer of Aphex twins logo)), but its not my style -  on both the case, and also on the backweight. I find it more aesthetic/elegant.

It's not meant for sound, and has no real advantage or disadvantage for it.
