I like the new milk color, but I'd like it w/ the gold back plate. Is my only hope to order both the keyboard and the gold back weight separately? This seems a bit superfluous. What would I do with the original backplate? Also now we're looking at a $500 keyboard. Hmm.

If it's anything like r1 then, yes, that is your only option. You could try to sell the backplate on r/mm to recouperape some cost if you really wanted to.

Will the internal silicon dampener function as a standalone alternative to the internal brass weight or is it an add-on silencer that you can install with the internal brass weight on?

It says "Cannot be used at the same time as the Internal Weight." on the product page, so I guess it's the former.

It's a shame they didn't add the rest of the r1 colors. I really wanted an m60 dusk :(

Oof! Completely missed that. I was (inefficiently) skimming the product page while walking.  :)) Thank you so much!  :thumb:

Is there any info as to whether the U80 will be an integrated plate or not? Kinda looks like it from the Rama web page but not possible to tell for sure.

Any other innovations on it that people can spot?

Agreed. Not only that, I now have to pay for shipping and import tax (30%) for something I don't want. I went ahead and ordered the gold backplate anyway. But the whole ordeal left a foul taste in my mouth. r/MK will be swarming with these plates so it's not going to be easy to unload it.

Tempted to pick up a SEQ2 in MILK, I just wish it was possible to get a KURO Stealth backweight without the green infill for it for a more neutral look.

Is the only difference in Kuro/Moon Stealth editions the different backplate?

Yeah, it's aluminium instead of brass.

I already have an M60-A LAKE. I guess I'll take one more, and most of all I like "MILK" version.

There's no way to avoid it unless the sender declares a very low price for the shipment. That is fraud though, and very few are prepared to do it. And in all honesty, it's hard to get away with it when this board looks the way it does. It just doesn't come across as a $40 product.

Very curious about this, too.

If the Q2 Rama is going to be better than the Oco version, I can always wait a few more months.

Looking to get the Seq 2. Is the internal weight worth getting? I have great respect for the amount of work & materials Rama put in his products, but 85$ is always 85$.

I guess it depends what you value. The M60-A definitely requires some form of dampening in order to not sound hollow. The internal weight helps in that regard but it makes the keyboard ridiculously heavy relative to its size (the sides being flat making it a bit difficult to pick up add to that effect). RAMA's video wherein Kate demonstrates the installation and use of the silicone sound dampener seems to show a similar result minus the heft ó I'd wait for their next video with non-silent switches to see if such is indeed the case. Finally, if you don't mind resorting to more ghetto-mod-ish means, you could always fill in the M60-A with foam, rubber, shelf-liner or what have you.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for that PixelNinja! I sure do like a hefty keyboard. I have some sorbathane that I could use to dampen the hollow sound. From Kate's video, it seems like the weight is the way to go. As stated, hopefully they make a video with non silenced switches. Watching the video, the silicone dampening gives me some discomfort whilst the weight sounds just right. Guess I have to go that route. Thanks again :)

Glad to have been of some help!

What color are you going for? I'll probably pick up a SEQ2 + internal dampener at the last moment but I can't decide between a Stealth edition or MILK :confused:

Moon! Sick colorway & works with a lot of keysets. Modern Dolch will fit like a glove. Milk is looking marvelous though.

Definitely in for moon stealth. Love that phosphorus glow. Kinda wish we could've had blue on the kuro stealth. Now, all I need is a matching numpad (Curse of 60%).

Super excited to receive my Seq 2. Has anyone commented on the height of the keyboard? Just wondering how it feels typing / over long term / with/without wristrest / etc.. The front of the keyboard looks a little high to me, but I'm curious how it's worked out for other people.

The dimensions :



Keyboard height should not be a problem provided one has his/her desk and chair setup at an appropriate height.

Yep! We'll have extras available, just shipped out all the orders today! Just need to wait for people to receive them and make sure all deliveries are as expected then we can offer up the extras. Past that there will be a round 2 also for Heavy Industry :)

I suppose the backweights are interchangeable so if there's anyone getting a gold backweight that wants a mist backweight (off the milk) hit me up for a pre-trade.
