    Hi guys, I'm catweewee. This is a little project I have been working on from July 2016 from the design stage until September when it started manufacturing. It is also the very first keyboard that I've designed and of course with much appreciated help from Yuktsi TGR, Juahenza and Pwner ION

THIS IS AN IC FOR R2

Now, some details about the SINGA and the concept.
SINGA is Lion in the malay language, which is where I'm from. Regal and magestic. Something what I’d like SINGA to be

__________________________________________________

SINGA R1
More
Specifications:

Full Album: https://imgur.com/a/Nks3Z

  • The SINGA comes with a dual brass weight for heft. The LION brass weight is connected to an inner brass bar inside
  • Custom SINGA PCB by TGR (Winkeyless Bootmapper software)
  • Plates come in either brass or aluminium. Plates are all CNCed instead of laser cut, which makes it sturdier and gives a much cleaner cut
  • 8 Degree Angle
  • Approximately 2 KG weight without caps
  • Each individual SINGA is hand polished to ensure a better quality anode.


Colours:


Layouts:


_______________________________________________________________________________________________

SINGA R2

SINGA R2 will differ from R1 with the following:
  • SS Lion Weight, SS inner weight, Brass plates and Alu plates in the new colours
  • 6 colours: Burnt Orange, Sailor Navy, Champagne Gold, Jet Purple, Velvet (from r1) and Black (from r1)
  • WK and WKL options.
  • Limited to 55 units, FCFS Store Purchase. Once all 55 slots are taken and paid for, ordering will end and production will start.

IC FORM: including the poll for WK and WKL tops https://goo.gl/forms/5Pthq2fOebkRQvq12

UPDATES:
  • 25/2 R2 will have both blocked and non blocked tops :)

  • 25/2 Champagne and Navy Blue prototypes currently made. GB might start earlier, in mid or end March.

  • 28/3 Prototypes in :) Waiting for Colourchips and GB will start. 2nd week of April?

  • Pricing: Alu kit: 376 USD, Brass Plate: 388 USD, with PCB, fees INCLUDED (4.4%+0.3). Slight price change due to currency exchange.
  • Brass plates and alu plates offered. No more ss plates.

Photos!

Very interested. Will you be keeping the same weight design as R1?

I'm part of R1 and just dropping by to say that catweewee is a great runner so far with her first GB, giving us fairly frequent updates through email.

Quick question for cat though, is it feasible to get an option for an F row with spacing this time around? Like this 75SQ.

Definitely understand if not since the pcb, plate and top piece would need a redesign.

Yes the lion brass weight is the main feature of the board. Singa actually means LION in my language :)

No because then youd also have to change the pcb tracing, a change in machinin costz

Oh well it's not like a normal 75% is hard to live with anyway. Hyped :)

There is ISO support on the plate and PCB right?

I like how the red for this case seems darker than some of the other red cases I've seen. The lion looks really good too. If I was into 75% this would be an instant buy. Good luck with getting R2 started.

Haha yes, most red boards are really bright. Dark reds are much easier to match most keysets as well.

And thanks!

Sorry sturdier would be the wrong word. It makes a cleaner cut, and if you have a thicker plate, less flex so this is where i guess you can sturdier. Laser cutting done wrong can make edges not straight etc.

Definitely understand if not since the pcb, plate and top piece would need a redesign.

Any chance R2 is going to keep this semi staggered F Row? From the picture of this R1 Singa?

Singa is mostly normal 75 with bottom row blockers.  F-row is standard 75.

oh Jesus.  This will be stuck in my head all day now.

Not only is this board a beauty, I learned this week that:

The English language name Singapore comes from its Malay name Singapura, which is derived from Sanskrit meaning "Lion City". Singa comes from the Sanskrit word siṃha (सिंह), which means "lion", and pūra (पुर) means "city" in Sanskrit and is a common suffix in many Indian place names.

I don't know if anyone has asked this yet or not:

In the first photo, the accent red keys (ESC and Enter)... are those from GMK Plum?  If so, they would be RO1 and seem to perfectly match the red of this case. 

Burgundy R2 is coming up... might have to sign up for both :)
