Hey everyone just wanted to make an update. This is actually pretty bittersweet for me. This is the final round of the BananaSplit. Me and Evan decided we canít compete with other clones without making sacrifices to our quality. We believed that our product went beyond the features and qualities in the service we provided to our customers. I canít thank my supporters enough youíve truly made the BananaSplit an amazing experience for me. To most of you itís a simple 60 percent with some nice tweaks. To me it holds way more value. Itís been an amazing learning experience for me with Evan taking me under his wing. I canít thank him enough to just trust a random 18 year old he met at a meetup with a vision. Heís a life long friend and thatís something Iíll cherish and always takeaway from this endeavor. Iím sorry the past couples months I havenít been as involved as I would have liked to. To put it simply. I got burnt out, and life decided to get in my way. This isnít the end of me, I have more projects planned. If anyone has any questions or just wants to shoot the **** with me about anything feel free to PM me on reddit. Thank you to everyone at TheVan Keyboards and a big thanks to all my supporters. Itís been fun.

So sad to hear you're not continuing. My BananaSplit in a Retro60 case with SA 1965 is my favorite at the moment.

 

I also just found out I missed the R2 extras sale! :(

Anyway, thanks for such an awesome board and I'll keep an eye out for whatever is next.

Shame you won't be making this again. The bottom row had some good layout options that you can't find anywhere else.

last week I was told that dyesub was 95% complete, haven't heard anything since and haven't received tracking info yet. Shouldn't be much longer.

You know,

I dont come of here much,

but i forgot to share that i built this with Hako Trues and the TechKeys aluminum case, flat. i built it the week in came in the mail.

I kind of forgot I had it, i was meaning to take the caps on my DZ and put them on it but instead put granite. i actually think it looks really clean though the way it is.

Anyone had issues with the usb c port? First time I plugged mine in the two connections closest to the edge of the board popped out. I assume these just need to be soldered back?

Yes, me too. Soldert them back in. Had too much force from the cable on the connector. Was scared my favorit PCB had died. Added some plastic between case and connector to stabelize it. Works fine again.
