[IC] DALCO 959 Mini | A High-end 60
« on: Thu, 08 October 2020, 20:22:47 »

253276-0



I'm happy to finally present the Dalco 959 Mini:
A High-end Porsche 959 inspired 60  

We've worked to capture the brilliant industrial aesthetic of the Porche 959, while staying true to the iconic simplicity of keyboard designers before us.
The side profile is inspired by the elegant curves of the 959, bringing elements of this classic style into a modern keyboard.
The weight and rear accent are exaggerated but tasteful, scratching that itch for more brass and steel most of us have. We hope you enjoy!

*Cries in no hhkb*

Looks fancy enough that I don't mind the lack of HHKB.

I don't think I'll be pursuing this. I'm quite interested in the benefits of ortholinear and splits now.

But again, for the name.
