Hey buddy, I don't have a black pearl, only gray. I can link some of those pics if you would like and try to photoshop it darker?!

hey, no need for photoshop, no matter what color pearl or keycap color i just was interested to see how a maxkeys set with 6.25 space looks like because i'm planning to use maxkeys sa ninja on my green pearl  ;D

Went with Cyan and brass. I was about to order an additional plate and PCB, but with the $60+ shipping, I decided to drop those.
Can't wait! :)
Woot! Hey, if you order them, I will cancel the extra shipping and bundle them with your current order! I'll pm you about it


Ah no don't worry, I was ordering them bundled to the same order initially anyways. I just forgot that the shipping was so costly so I left them out to keep my financials happier. We're good.

I can join for other plate options in R2 in any case, right? ;)

There might not be a R2 sir! But i might stock a few extra PCB's and some acrylic plates!

What's the best way to tell you if we want to change our order?  I am thinking of changing from pink to purple.

Email, PM, phone call, text message, letter with a pigeon?   :p

Argh, you're not making it easy.  But again, there are only 3 orders of pink.  Will definitely be unique.  What keycaps would pair well with pink though?

Oh, can I give a friendly suggestion?  Would it be ok to have a spreadsheet of what engraved order number associate with each order (the invoice order number)?  So we'll know what number we'll be getting?

Its your call :D SA Maxkey Pink, a ton of Originative Co Pink sets, GMK Skeletor xD So much would look dope

As for the engraving number form, it will be very tricky to get up anytime soon. I have shopify orders, paypal orders, mechkeys.ca orders, zFrontier orders, cash orders and other non-order number orders. It would take me a while to put it up, but I can definitely try once I organize every last order! :thumb:

Try to get your choice in before the GB closes bud! :) I think any of those are great choices!

Mm i don't think so, the pink should be darker than that! The purple is definitely lighter and more magenta-e, but i wouldn't say the pink is.

SA looks great on this board, will use SA Ninja with my green pearl

interesting that you have a 1.25/1/6.25/1.25/1 config on the bottom row (1.25 and 1 on left and right of space bar are inverted) - any reason for this or just for lolz?

I already ordered a silver Pearl, but I think I just need some validation.

I'm pairing this with GMK Laser. I'm not quite brave enough to commit to the bright case colors (even though they look incredible), so I wanted to stick to silver, gray or black.

What do you guys think? Will Laser pair well with a silver case?

I think it will look fine and worst case you have a silver pearl that will match virtually any keyset.

If everything is alright with them, i will send payment over and get started on the machining. Still need to revise my plate design and sell acrylic plates, and also need to finalize the weight design. Thanks everyone! :thumb:

I have everyones cables and all the boxes for shipping (few hundred dollars)
I prepaid for all the PCBS a week ago and they should be done soon (like 4grand)

Hello everyone. Want to thank you all for the support, patience and love! - Koob

Update 12/6/2017
  • PCB's are paid for and being produced
  • Screws and rubber feet are paid for and being shipped to me Friday
  • RGB Diffusers are paid for and being produced
  • Pearls are paid for and being delayed until a rose gold top case sample is made
  • 10ft braided USB_C to USB-A cables were paid for and are in stock

Important Notes
1. I made minor changes to the top case piece. This is where the PCB bolts onto and the keycaps poke out of. I dialed in the walls so the keycap fitment is just right, added a small engraving of R1 for ROUND 1 under the left corner blocker for historical purposes, made the diamond logo a tad bigger, resized the usb hole and added a small lightning bolt engraving above the USB hole. As such, I am having a single top case part sample made in rose gold before making the rest of the Pearls.

2. Weight number engraving is happening in the bottom right since the most space is there.

3. I have requested my purple color to be darker, and my anodizer said sure. So instead of the light pinkish magenta purple, the new purple will be dark grape purple. If anyone has objections to this, please let me know, I can still try and request some Pearls in the lighter purple.



Production Statistics not including extras
1792 top mount screws
512 case screws
512 rubber feet
256 weight screws
768 individual Pearl parts
1280 feet / 1/4 Mile / 427 yards of USB-C cable ordered

Most popular Pearl combination
Gray Pearl + Brass Plate

Most popular Pearl colors
Gray->Cyan->Purple->Black

Least popular Pearl colors
Yellow and RAW finish

Least popular Pearl combination
RAW finish Pearl + Black Aluminum Plate

What didn't get ordered
Yellow, Green and Raw finish Aluminum Plates

That's super nice of you to say, thank you! MM2 is a wonderful board. I actually helped Dave edit some of the parts on it like the plate and polycarbonate bottom piece, even added the maple leaf! I have one and love it. MM1 was a big inspiration for Pearl, and Dave has mentored and guided me through this whole project. Even if you like MM2, Pearl is still very different. Its a 13x4 matrix instead of 12x4, with row 2 being offset to the right some and the bottom row being centered and blocked. Hope you enjoy it, and tag me in any pics of it :]

Automatically. You'd only have to request the previous lighter purple if that was the shade you really wanted.

Hello everyone! Just wanted to drop an update -

I've got all the accessories and hardware packed up for every order. That's a 10ft USB-C cable, mounting screws, plastic feet and 3 white indicator leds. I've also got all the RGB Diffusers in house.

Waiting on the PCB's and the Cases. A final sample case is still being made and after that the rest will get the green light.

In the meantime, I'm having jordijolimon help me make acrylic plates, and having KomatozKaps help make a beautiful little custom artisan for the buy.

Acrylic plates have more flex, sound more dampened, feel lighter/softer and ping less than their respectful metal plates.

Cheers everyone - Koob

Hello everyone! MERRY CHRISTMAS!! Back with another update.

Tested all the 10ft USB-C cables and packed all of the accessories for each order (screws, feet, cable, 3 leds, sticker)

All the PCB's arrive this Friday and need to be tested. Gold plated contacts

Rose Gold Sample is finished and will come to me soon. If my final revisions were perfect, i will green light all of the Pearls. If not i will spend at most a day dialing in anything that needs to be changed and then give the OK.

These updates might seem nice but the toughest part lies ahead. Getting a crap ton of Pearls, making sure they aren't ****ed up, packaging them and finally shipping them. Long road ahead fellas and ladies! -Koobaczech
