The PracticeTKL is a keyboard kit that contains almost everything you need to build your own keyboard from scratch - just add switches, stabilizers, and keycaps, and you'll be good to go! It's meant to be a great starting point for anyone to learn to solder or put their first keyboard together - this time in a TKL layout!
The PracticeTKL is powered by an STM32 onboard microcontroller running QMK with VIA compatibility out of the box. The PCB included supports RGB underglow and per-key single color LED backlighting with south facing LEDs, but you'll have to provide your own WS2812B strip or LEDs to enable them.
If you ever want to upgrade your PracticeTKL build, the plate/PCB assembly is compatible with our upcoming StackedTKL; no desoldering necessary!
Each kit comes with:
- 1 DevastatingTKL PCB
- 1 PracticeTKL FR4 Plate
- 1 PracticeTKL FR4 Bottom
- 16 M3 screws, 8 12mm M3 standoffs
You will need a soldering iron, solder, and M2.5 Hex Head Screwdriver to assemble this kit.
You will also need to purchase:
- Up to 90 switches
- Stabilizers - up to 4x2U and a 6.25U or 7U
- Left Shift, Enter, Right shift and Backspace all need a 2U stabilizer.
- The spacebar will need a 6.25U or 7U stabilizer depending on your selected layout
