Hotdog Mount

By using small strips of an o-ring, hotdog mount is a fantastic combination of gasket strip and o-ring mounting. Alternatively, you can opt for the classic top mount.


Covering the inside and protecting the multiple daughterboards and cables is a brass plate. This helps with the acoustics, as well as providing some heft to the board.

Some images of the keyboard are shown with an infilled logo. For the GB units, the engravings will not be infilled.
