Q&A

Why is the quantity so small?

I do the manufacture myself.
The B60 can only produce up to 15 units per month.


Why did you set the price high?

B60 is a small quantity. And it takes a long time to process because the parts are thin and there are many.


What is the role of the cover?

The role of the cover is designed to eliminate the inherent resonance of screwless and aluminum. Even if you don't put a form, it produces a pretty good sound.




If you have any questions or are curious about the news, please come in.

Amazing looking 60%!
Price is a bit up there for me, but I appreciate all the craftsmanship that went into the parts.

The exterior looks fixed with only four bolts, but it is strong because there are four pins around the bolt.

Sorry for the confusion, I think the board looks very good, but the mounting points for the switch plate look very uninspired and the opposite of novel.
Don't get me wrong, the board is stunning, but I think the plate could use more work.

Would you consider replacing the raw ss weight as the stock option instead of an extra? Just so that there is less wastage of materials.

Pretty sure most, if not all, will be after the look/feel of the unfinished ss.

the design is cool, but the plate mounting points do make me think that this is made for someone that isn't quite aware of the influence of mouting points in a keyboard, symmetry isn't always the way to go. don't get me wrong, the design is very nice, the price is a little too high, probably because of the small quantity, but the plate with tons of flex cuts and symmetrical mounting points is the biggest problem imo

board looks great and I really enjoyed DBOkeys vid, prices however are........ a little high, the plate for example, why is it 60$?
I mean sure 15 units is very small but its still mindblowingly high for a plate. Even the PCB from hiney cost less.

Small quantities, meme cuts, all account to that.
