We are pleased to present you the MKD-Custom keyboard by Teleport - made in Germany.

The idea and specs for this board were developed in cooperation with the MKD discord channel. It is the most biggest custom keyboard community in Germany.
After a poll, many fruitful discussions and a runoff, the choice has fallen on a 60% gasket mount. We are proud of the board - especially in terms of sound and feel - and hope you like it as much as we do. The flex can be varied by the different plate materials and the adjustable gasket mount with screws - there should be something for everyone. In addition to the standard additional weights in the back of the board back, we have further (small) brass additional weights integrated as carriers of the Gasket-Mount. Enjoy the folowing pics, no render!

Important notes:

This is a GROUP BUY!
The board will be produced in an edition of max. 50 pcs. In order for the GroupBuy to start, we need at least 25 orders (MoQ). If we reach the MoQ of 25 pcs by 8th of May 21 at 8pm, the board will be shipped to you globally around the end of July 2021 by DHL International. So production time is about 12 weeks and ETA depends in detail were are you from.


If the Group Buy does not materialize, we will of course refund your money!

The anodized colors may vary slightly due to the material nature of the aluminum. We make every effort to create as much uniformity as possible. The Cerakote colors are Stoplight Red and a white like Electrical Barrier or Snow White.

Unexpected circumstances, supplier quality issues or otherwise can torpedo the timeline somewhat, of course. We will keep you informed.



For the ones interested in us, here´s a little backstory:

We´re a bunch of three, who got sick of the stock keyboards and found ourselves deep down the rabbit hole of custom keyboards during the end of 2019. What started as a project between two brothers and a childhood friend turned into something we figured we could share with the community. We went from, what we call “the beer prototype”, towards our first CNC-Milled prototype and finally our first complete custom keyboard. Now we want people to be able to use the case as a base for their own project, that´s what the DIY kit is for. We may consider special wishes, just get in touch and we´ll see what we can do.

it seems kind of redundant to have 3 posts on what's basically different editions of the same keyboard.

You keep showing off the white one with brass and listing the low price of 335€ with it but that config costs 477€ on your site. I think it would help if you listed the parts prices and prices for different finishes with your groupBuy.

No,sry. The other boards are still in developement and will have for example two milled parts. The basic design is nearly the same, but they will be different boards.
