2 questions @upas. 1) What is a FR4 plate? 2) For the default included brass plate, will there be a different color option?

FR4 is a fiberglass material typically used for PCBs. It has a good flex to it - it's one of my favorite plate materials.
For the brass plate, it's just sandblasted brass colored. No other options.

Surprised that the material around the LCD isn't going to be milled to raise it even a few mm, but the more disappointing thing is the lack of ISO.

I think that's me out, thanks though.

I think the PCB supports ISO but not the switch plate. Upas did mention that he will release the plate file.

The PCB does support ISO and I am releasing the plate files once the GB closes. This information was posted in the first post of the GB thread.

@upas, can you show rendered pictures of the diff between white and blue OLED? Can. You consider bundling price for those who will be getting all 3 knobs (pearl / regular)?

I'll take photos of the blue and white OLEDs tonight. Not renders :)

No bundling prices - I'm not making a lot of profit on the knobs already, so I don't think I could offer a discount and also adequately handle risk.

The wavez render has a dark grey case. The knob is a planned custom knob that did not work out.
Perhaps in the future i can offer these knobs.


In general, I want to remind everyone of the color disclaimer. These are not plastic keycaps. Anodizing/e-white coating aluminum is not an exact process, the factory only guarantees that they will get close to the provided reference colors. I know a lot of you are asking for precise color codes, but it's best not to expect any precise matching.

 There will be a Pirate Black, Cloud White, Deep Ocean blue, and Stormy Grey. They will be close to the reference Pantone/RAL, but they may not match exactly.

This is also why I am not posting Pantone/RAL for white/black. The white will be similar to the prototype which Jae built. I do not have the RAL/Pantone code for it, but hopefully the photos will suffice.

I will be instructing the factory to prioritize matching top/bottom case over matching a pantone. Likewise, my focus during QC will be ensuring that the top/bottom cases match, not that the delivered colors match a reference color precisely.

I'm glad you're taking this approach. Would prefer to have my keyboard look coherent than match a proto/render exactly.

Here are some knob height comparisons:

Default knob:


Pearloid knob:


RAMA knob (3d print basic mockup of geometry):


The RAMA knob sit approx. 1 to 2mm lower than the Default knob. The pearloid knob sits the highest.
We are still refining the specific geometries for the RAMA knob. We may have it sit even lower.

Is the barrel of the standard and perloid nob the same? This image shows a big difference in the height, but appears to be due to how its mounted.

The PCB is solderable, not hotswap. Even if you have never soldered before, you shouldn't be afraid to solder a keyboard :)

Shameless plug, I sell a kit on my website cannonkeys.com called the Practice60. It's fairly inexpensive and when you're done putting it together, you have a 60% keyboard. It's a great way to practice soldering before doing it on a more expensive custom!

The barrel on the pearloid knob is not as deep as the standard. The difference in height is due to the mounting, but that still plays into where it ultimately sits.

As a matter of fact, the pearloid knob is 17mm tall, and the standard is 19mm tall, but because of the short barrel, the 17mm knob sits higher.

i think it'd look nice sitting a bit lower and could pair nicely with lower-profile keycaps

Just about every custom or mass-produced board I've worked with has had a slightly different way of installing either holtites or millmax sockets, due to size of the pcb holes. I think this will be no different. There isn't much choice aside from either 0705 or 0305 millmax sockets, or 8134 holtites, since those are the only ones that fit all switch pins.

FR4 is a fiberglass material typically used for PCBs. It has a good flex to it - it's one of my favorite plate materials.
For the brass plate, it's just sandblasted brass colored. No other options.

Surprised that the material around the LCD isn't going to be milled to raise it even a few mm, but the more disappointing thing is the lack of ISO.

I think that's me out, thanks though.

I think the PCB supports ISO but not the switch plate. Upas did mention that he will release the plate file.

Based on that information, you should be able to make a knob to your liking, or see if a certain knob fits :)

I personally think it looks cleaner if the knob was around flush with the cherry caps like in the renders. It's away from the other keys to where it doesn't need to sit above to easily turn it. I don't have huge meaty fingers though. +1 to meat finger people.  :D

Hello everyone,

The product page is now live on CannonKeys, stock will be released at exactly 6PM EDT on Monday.
https://cannonkeys.com/collections/satisfaction-75

After purchasing, you will receive an email with a link to a google form to select your options.

Extras for the S75 will be listed at 5PM EDT so that you can add them to your cart.

If you place separate orders for extras and the Satisfaction75, I will hold on to your extra shipping costs and refund the difference AFTER the group buy has shipped (many months from now).
To avoid this situation, If you want to buy right at 6PM, and you plan on purchasing extras, I suggest adding the extras you want to your cart ahead of time, and purchasing the Satisfaction75 itself when it goes live.

There is plenty of stock of extras, so having them in your cart should not slow down the purchasing process.

That's right. Since I'll be releasing the extras 1 hour ahead of time, you can place them in your cart and do a combined checkout for your keyboard and extras.

Darker colors are generally safer and match with more keysets. Gold in particular is hard to find stuff to match, and if thats your worry I'd definitely go Blue or Black.

I was looking at grabbing some aftermarket GMK Phantoms for those beautiful gold accents. Flip flopping on black or white base but actually leaning towards white

I know that the keyboard is limited to a specific amount of units, but will the extras (PCB, knobs, screens, etc.) be available for the duration of the group buy or do they also have a limit? I'll be picking up a the keyboard for sure on Monday, but I'd rather wait on the extras until I get more money if possible.

I know that the keyboard is limited to a specific amount of units, but will the extras (PCB, knobs, screens, etc.) be available for the duration of the group buy or do they also have a limit? I'll be picking up a the keyboard for sure on Monday, but I'd rather wait on the extras until I get more money if possible.

The extras will be available until the group buy closes. I plan on closing the buy 2 weeks after opening it.

I was thinking about getting the White with the GMK Mizu set, but the more I think about the Brass/gold rama knob the more I worry they won't match.
Anyone got cool ideas on combos that match with the rama knob? Starting to think about black...
Darker colors are generally safer and match with more keysets. Gold in particular is hard to find stuff to match, and if thats your worry I'd definitely go Blue or Black.

I was looking at grabbing some aftermarket GMK Phantoms for those beautiful gold accents. Flip flopping on black or white base but actually leaning towards white
I'm also on the fence for blue or white. The blue would pair nicely with GMK Metropolis and DSA Scientific, but that GMK Mizu combo just looks so nice.

@upas, can you show rendered pictures of the diff between white and blue OLED? Can. You consider bundling price for those who will be getting all 3 knobs (pearl / regular)?

I'll take photos of the blue and white OLEDs tonight. Not renders :)

No bundling prices - I'm not making a lot of profit on the knobs already, so I don't think I could offer a discount and also adequately handle risk.

@yohannes  In case you want them all, you can find the knobs on the china market, almost everywhere. These are going for like $5-9 for 3 knobs and comes with different pearl color so you just need to buy the right measure. In case you need just one, buying it in the GB makes sense, otherwise if you want them all, you might save $30 and just pay 2-3 bucks for each knob.

Where can we find knobs that look like the smooth ones in the renders? Or any alternate knobs too, would be cool. Is there a diameter or mounting type to search for?

I just want to check ahead of time, but will there be an order limit like one keyboard per person or will multiple board purchases require separate invoices?

I posted the exact part number above.

There is a 1 board per order limit. If you want to purchase multiple, you can, but you will have to make multiple purchases.

Cool. And is there any possibility of combining shipping or have you already worked out the logistics for shipping boards individually?
