Sorry if u already mentioned but what’s the scoop on acrylic plates.

Also once everyone has received their Pearl and is happy (replacements finished), will u be selling leftover stuff? Pcbs etc.. if there is any...

Also congrats to Robotical- Pearl and a Trash Panda😍😍😍

Messaged Jordijolimon this morning, haven't heard from him yet. He's probably really busy. Waiting on one more prototype plate from him and then I am going to order a bunch in all colors if it works. Problem is, the past have broken super easily. And the ones that haven't broken, I've had to dremmel extensively to get them to work. I for sure will liquidate the Pearl Factory inventory once everything is sent out!

Hey! If I find some boards are straight fckd when QC'ng them, there wont be extras. If all boards are fine, in the end there might be 1 extra in the most popular colors. I never really thought about buying extras since this GB wasn't a "for profit" kind of thing. I'm sorry everyone, figured everyone who wanted one got in on the GB.

I went through all the Gray Pearls last night. I listed two bottom case parts as b-stock since the anodizing is kind of weird, and one top case part as b-stock as well since it has a tiny little impact chip. Didn't think these issues were big enough to reject them. The bottom parts are fine on all areas that will be seen when using the Pearl (side perimeter). Only the bottom and top of the BOTTOM case parts have the weird anodizing. But the bottom sits against the desk and the top is covered by the other case.

If anyone here has a gray order and is willing to take these b-stock parts, which are still beautiful, I can try and work out some discount or something, and I would be very appreciative. As a matter of fact, if I find more b-stocks that I don't reject, ill list and if anyone is willing to take them I will do the same! Please pm me, possibly list an order #, I can try to ship your Pearl early too for your kindness!

If not, I will have to send them back to get refinished and re-anodized and stuff. Thanks everyone! Here are pics

I have a question. :)
Then, if you have only 1 extra later, who can buy it?
is there an opportunity for the first person you asked? Or are you will getting a new application?

Ideally I'd like to hold on to it and make sure that it doesnt need to be used to replace someones order! But if it comes down to it, have been asked way too many times already for extras x0 Will go through my messages and try to prioritize those who asked first :)

Hello everyone! Going to be sending a mass email soon, as well as making cross posts in other social networks. Its simple,

1. If you want acrylic plates shipped with your Pearl order, please pm me or post here with your order number. My acrylic provider, Jordijolimon, has mentioned to me that the available colors are clear, frosted, black, red, cyan, orange, neon pink, dark transparent green and blue. I plan on buying like 30 of them from him, split between those colors, and then charging you $35 for them. I will stock them in my site as well if they don't sell before i ship your order. You can always buy them after, but best i send with your order. Free shipping CONUS as well.

2. If you have an address change, please message me that as well. Check your order receipt and make sure it matches your current address if you are unsure.

3. If you have pm'd me before about anything important about your order, not regarding an extra Pearl, please feel free to remind me of it again. Because my brain is in a million places and i could have forgotten or not written it down.


Thank you so much!

Hi Koob, order #1056 here.  I'll take an acrylic plate.  Would you post pics of the different colors once you have them in your hand?

I have PM you before, can you verify the color of my Pearl as well?  Do you have extra PCB, just curious.

Thanks much.  Have a great rest of your weekend.

Hey guys! Thanks for all the pms! Been packing orders today and a few of you have been asking about the boards assembly. One of my good discord friends runs a build/repair/assembly service. He's an older guy and has a lot of experience and tools. Stuff like a Hakko FX-888D, Ketser 44 solder, desoldering vacuum, multimeter, etc.

Anyways, he's doing a 10% off for me. Thats $18 for a Pearl built. You would pay shipping and the cost of any switches or top leds! So if you are worried about building your Pearl check out his website - https://www.turbokeys.us - and check out his reddit post - I talk to him on discord over pms so if anyone needs help communicating with him just lmk!

Hi Koob, order #1056 here.  I'll take an acrylic plate.  Would you post pics of the different colors once you have them in your hand?

Perfect! Yes i'll post some pictures for you! Your order is Silv/Brss with an extra PCB. Got all that here, no worries. Look ok to you? Have a great weekend too!

As I PM'd you, a clear acrylic plate here and extra PCB please! Order number 1099 :)
Also, I'll wait for you to receive the plates, shipping overseas is too expensive for just a plate and a pcb.

Hey guys!! Wow, i see emails have been going out haha. Very happy to see.

Ive packed (not shipped) the first 25 orders so far (120+ to go), and am trying to get through printing those labels. Tomorrow my friend will drop some of them off, and the next day more will be dropped off, etc. Every day after work i try to pack a few more, and eventually when I've collected enough, i will again reprint labels and send them out in the following days.

So they will be shipped in batches guys, and its a slow process, and its mostly first order first serve style. I might arrange for pickup as well at some point, and that would land shipping on every other Saturday. So weekly shipments.

Important notes, make sure to double check your address, and if its an international order out of the USA, i need a phone number from you. Ive already isolated 4 boxes that are going to japan, china and Canada where i wasn't provided a phone number. Ive emailed those people already and am awaiting their replies.

Lmao Puddsy. Its so cramped in here :/ But its a good box, and i have been overkilling the packing. Nothing is left unpadded, everything is super bubble wrapped, the bottoms are lined with either some foam or more bubble wrap, i really hope they are safe. And yea, some boxes have a lot of stuff.

Thanks so much donut!! Its funny but, this is all way more stressful than satisfying. I want to make sure everyone is happy and gets a good Pearl. I think the most satisfying part of all this is everyones support, and hoping to see how you all build the boards :)

So great to hear... Can't imagine this is already shipping thanks to many updates. Unbeatable...
And btw... I guess I chose the right color... black... so deep... ha...... great anodize....
Guess I have to prepare vintage black since I heard brass plate does feel really good with light linears... (am I wrong?....:V)

Hey I just got my shipping confimation too :) If we contacted you earlier in the GB about a case color order adjustment, our shipping notice from Pearlboards will still state the original order color right? (for example I'm #1028 and switched from Silver to Cyan but Pearlboards shipping notice says Silver/Brass.)

Haha thanks a lot!<3 All the colors are amazing, not one is better than the other in my opinion ;D Brass is super strong. PERSONALLY i like lubed liners on acrylic. That being said, my friend R0b0tical just built his Pearl with a brass plate and lubed vintage blacks with vintage mx clear springs (ghosted the blacks). And well, it typed super nice!!

Glad to see these going out Koob. Great job!!  :thumb:

Not sure if I've already asked about this: there are cables included but are the cables all matched with the case color (i.e. cyan cable for cyan Pearl)? Or we're colored cables some extra things and the default is some black cable? I think I remember seeing cyan cables somewhere.

Hey!! Great questions guys!

Did you ever end up following through with those artisans that you commissioned? Just curious if we should be on the lookout :p
I am. Things got a bit complicated with that. Komatoz, my artisan maker, was having issues casting the artisan chests because of time issues/equipment/weather. She teamed up with BoomSnap! Caps and he is finishing the casting/shooting. I have been keeping track of them as best as I can without micro managing anything, but BoomSnap! Caps is working on this as we speak and Komatoz is working on sending me auth cards/goodie bags. The giveaway receivers have already been randomly selected from all my order numbers and they will most likely receive the cap separately from their order, so don't expect anything yet!

Not sure if I've already asked about this: there are cables included but are the cables all matched with the case color (i.e. cyan cable for cyan Pearl)? Or we're colored cables some extra things and the default is some black cable? I think I remember seeing cyan cables somewhere.

Thanks for all the hard work Koob. Can't wait!
Thank you as well! The majority of the cables are cyan, but I have a few in white, silver, red, gold and rose gold. I've tried to pack cables accordingly. Like if I'm packing a RG Pearl, I pack a RG cable. Red Pearl, red cable, silver Pearl white cable, etc. Purple Pearls will most likely have Gold or Cyan, Blue Pearls Cyan cable, Green Pearls, maybe white. I ordered these cables from a wholesaler and they didn't send me any black cables. 'Cry'

Also, shipped around 25 orders today. One was dropped off at USPS, the rest were dropped at a packmail service to be picked up later. The orders numbers were 1006 to->1037, with some of those not shipped and waiting a phone number from the customers. Other random orders were shipped also. I updated tracking via email and your PayPal order if applicable.

Expect them to arrive Thursday 2/22 or Friday 2/23, no signature required.

Jordi also sent me 2 acrylic plates today from Cali. I am hoping these work and are the final design so I can pull the trigger on making the rest. Stay tuned!

I forget what my order number is, but it will be a nice surprise whenever I get my pearl in.

Hey there everyone! With the first batch of people receiving their boards tomorrow and Friday, i thought it best to update the
www.pearlboards.com/setup
page and just go ahead and remind everyone of a few tips. I hope that everyone enjoys their Pearls and they arrive safe. They aren't perfect, but i hope they are perfect enough for you!


1. When screwing in the 4 case screws, do them all slowly at the same time. Don't screw in one fully and then the next and then the next etc

2. Same with the plate! This prevents stripping.

3. If your brass plate is slightly bowed or bent, just apply a tiny bit of leverage and bend it back.

4. On the switchplate, the OPEN 2u top corner is where the backspace goes, if you can orient your plate correctly.

5. Do not touch brass with your bare hands or water. It will tarnish unevenly

6. Peel film off both sides of the plastic diffuser! I wrote "Peel" on the side that seems like it doesn't have a film, but it does :P

7. You can download the default hex files and both the windows and mac versions of BMC (Bootmapper client) on www.pearlboards.com/setup

8. This is the default flashed layout made by me and flashed using Bootmapper client


Thanks everyone! Keep me updated on your orders please :)
