The solderable PCB included is QMK/VIA supported and USB-C, and the mounting style is a slightly modified top mount called Burger Mount. Burger Mount takes the evenness from top mount and uses o-rings on the mounting screws to make the typing experience slightly less harsh.

Quality Disclaimer

The is a board aimed to stay within a budget, and maintain affordability. It's fully aluminum and anodized beautifully, but to achieve this price point, the quality bar is lower than some of our more "premium line" boards, such as the Satisfaction75 and Chimera65. Customers have been happy with the quality of the Brutal-line boards, but we like to communicate this prior to purchase.

In general, large defects to visible faces will make a board B stock. But minor issues, small issues that are only visible in just the right angle of lighting, or small dents or blemishes on the bottom of the case that are not visible when the keyboard is fully built and on the desk will not cause a B stock evaluation.

Keyboard cases that ship with keyboards are meant to protect keyboards during shipping. These keyboard cases are made to order to fit the keyboard precisely, and are limited in quantity. As such, we do not replace keyboard cases if the keyboard case arrives damaged. Ideally, no keyboard carrying case arrives damaged, but at times, couriers are rough with packages and damages can occur. In these instances, we offer customers a $5 coupon off their next order as compensation.

We use photos of our products in hand when possible to show how they look in realistic situations. Sometimes the product might look different within the same listing- this is generally caused by different lighting conditions. When possible, we try to use different lighting conditions to show what the product might look like in different scenarios.

I got this board for $100 on Black Friday, and it couldn’t be better. It was very scary soldiering the board, since I had never done it before, but once I finished getting that done the board was very easy to make and looks beautiful. Doesn’t sound super hollow, especially once you add in the poly fill, and since I am a fan of stuffed plates, the Aluminum plate is great! Additionally, whenever I first ordered this board, it had gotten delivered to the wrong house and my neighbor took it, so I contacted CannonKeys and their support was AMAZING. 100% recommend this vendor and this board, they sent me a new one very quickly and were amazing with response times. Definitely not the last thing I have bought from them, one of my favorite vendors!

How to contact with guy how below me.
Adam, please if you coincidentally read this massage, tell us about your keycaps. These keycaps are similar to ISO or Charry but the surface is flat.

I ordered a B stock unit, and I honestly can’t find anything that would lead me to believe it was meant to be B stock. Apart from that, the keyboard itself if fantastic, especially for the price. The “burger mount” seems to make it a lot softer than I expected, which is a pleasant surprise. The fr4 plate paired with the burger mount is a great combination. The polyfill took a bit of work to get neatly tucked away inside the case, but it does help to take away any pinging sounds. I also did a force break mod and a tape mod on the board. Those mods paired with the polyfill seemed to do the trick, this board sounds great. Overall, I’m very pleased with my purchase. The carrying case is a great bonus!

Solid choice

Amazingly solid keyboard that I love typing on.

Pros -
- Built like a tank
- Made me a fan of top mount keyboards
- Fun build experience that got me over my hesitation to use a solder only board
- Sounds great after force break mod

Cons -
- Not a fan of the huge hole around the USB port
- Slight case ping that required a force break mod

Looking forward to see how things improve when they hopefully release a V2.
