Vantage is a project that has seen many iterations over the past couple of years. Initially starting as a side project in 2021, I shifted my focus to Vantage last year in response to the changing keyboard market and increased demand for affordable keyboards. The goal with Vantage has always been to offer a high-end, low-gimmick keyboard at a reasonable price. The sound, feel, and quality had to be top-notch while having a premium and timeless design. Because of these high standards, this project took much longer than I expected. But, six prototypes and many thousands of dollars later, I am ready to show off the finished product.

Looks awesome. Classic design at a decent price. Would love to see more colors (silver, perhaps?) but i'm definitely interested.

Best of luck with this, Jason!
