Final Color Renders









As you can see, the final choices for choice of color will be Red and Black.

I know more was on the table in the original IC, but due to logistics we've made the decision to go with two colors. Two colors will allow a more smooth fulfillment process in the end and Mekibo and I are trying to make this as smooth as possible for everyone (including us!), so we appreciate your understanding on this.

Some thoughts...

This keyboard was in the works for a long while, and as stated in my original IC, this was meant to be the culmination of a few iterations of a keyboard that set me off on a particularly degenerate journey. It's been incredible to see how others have put their own spin on their own favorite Kpop artists, Vtubers, or whatever they fancy. Knowing that it all started from one of my first designs gives me great pride and each new board that I see in this style adds on to that. Thanks to all for giving me the confidence (both directly and indirectly) to keep designing keyboards.

Now, this is the final iteration of the keyboard originally called Seulgi, then Seulgi v2, and penultimately Seulgi FE. Each design built off the last, taking various lessons-learned into considering prior to production of the next. My goal with RBB is to complete this several years long story and put some boards into the hands of people who have gassed me up time and time again.

Keyboard Details
  • Top mount
  • "Seamless"
  • Internal fastening
  • 6.9deg typing angle
  • Front face height: 17.8mm
  • Effective keyboard height (EKH): 22.1mm
  • Stainless steel (sandblasted) internal weight

GB Details
  • Sale format: 75 units (50 public raffle/25 FnF)
  • Raffle details: Trivia based raffle (answers to trivia must be correct in order for your entry to be valid). Form link (a Google form) will be shared in both mine and Mekibo's Discords.
  • Start Time: Date and time to be announced soon. It will be a short raffle due to low units (50).
  • Relatively small kit: Keyboard (top/bottom/plate/weight/DB), choice of extra plates, choice of extra PCBs
  • Price: $575 (shipping not included!)

If you made it this far, thanks for reading and standing by as this came together. We're approaching the true beginning for this board!

Dear yoot zekkin.
It may have already been brought to light, that the community is unsatisfied with the current state of this tenkeyless board.
Their main concerns is the engravings and name. They feel as if you are simply using it as a way to capitalize off the current popularity of the v-tuber k-pop organization known as Hololive red velvet. I, to some extend, agree with this.

While I do believe it is acceptable to make a board inspired by your favorite v-tubers idols, doing so consecutively without any clear link between the board and the v-tuber idols will arouse suspicion as to whether you are truly doing this due to passion for the keyboard community and the v-tuber idols your board is representing, or simply doing it for your own gain.

Although I do see the idea of making a series of v-tuber k-pop inspired keyboards, I would highly advise you to reconsider the direction the design of this board is heading in. Either you should directly link it to an v-tuber idol with clean engravings, or remove any current resemblance, and simply run the board as a standalone group-buy.

Either way, I do believe the board has the potential to turn out well.
Best of luck.

Is this based on one of those k pop things all these kids have as their avatars?

Jokes aside this looks clean and I am excited to see more on the proto. Not for me given the theme but good job.

Most people get extra PCB anyway, so it would be a good idea to make it a default.  That makes your life easier.
