Parallax Keyboards:


Allow me to introduce myself...I am Danny, a keyboard enthusiast from the UK.
I have recently setup my UK based company, Parallax Keyboards Limited.
After being in the hobby for the past 3 years and moderating on discord for some well known and established keyboard brands, I have decided to take it upon myself to start designing and producing keyboards. Design is something that I have always been keen to learn in more detail and what better way than mixing two hobbies and interests together. I have loved designing this keyboard and have invested 100's of hours into this project but the sense of accomplishment and achievement far out weighs anything else.


Originally this keyboard was going to be designed and made for purely myself (I had no intention of releasing a GB), however after receiving some awesome feedback and interest from friends and fellow hobbyists I have decided to release my design to the world.
When designing this keyboard I wanted to create something that was simple, yet elegant and had a premium look and feel to it. I am hopeful I have been able to achieve this with the use of premium materials, intricate engravings, beautiful chamfers and angles which all correlate around the keyboard. 

So, I guess this leaves me with the pleasure of introducing you all to the Parallax Imperium TKL.
