THE MASON60- ZEN SERIES:

The Zen of Keyboard. We all know it.  You're typing and you enter The Flow State- the world around you melts away, punctuated only by the clack, clack, clack of fingers on keys. Inspired by this Zen-like state of unfettered productivity, we created the Mason60- Zen Series 60% keyboard cases with a raw, stone look. 

 

THE MATERIAL: 

The Zen Series is cast from a cement resin composite. It is a cast in a mold and then acid etched to reveal the mineral aggregates within.  It looks and feels like real stone.  It is very heavy (even heavier than previous gypsum based models) and sounds fantastic. 

 COLOR WAYS: 

  • White Granite 
  • Basalt Black 
  • Sandstone 
  • Terracotta 
  • Slate Grey  

 FEATURES: 

  • Individually hand-crafted keyboard case  
  • 60% style case, should fit most GH60 style PCBs (e.g. DZ60) 
  • Tray mount with removable screw posts and stand offs (up to 6) and M2 screws 
  • Silicone O-ring dampeners 
  • Cork liner on the bottom of the case for grip and additional dampening 
  • Optional EVA case foam and/or cork case dampener 
  • Optional matching wrist rest  
    • note that the wrist rest will have a slightly different finish to the board.  We sand it instead of acid etching to obtain a smoother surface, so that it is more comfortable on the wrists.  You can still see the stone texture, just not as prominently as on the keyboard case.
    • The wrist rest is smooth and comfortable on the skin.

 

 DIMENSIONS: 

Case:  310x140x36mm, 1650g,  front height 26mm, internal size 286.5x95mm (***please check it fits your PCB***) 

Typing angle 6.5deg 

Wrist rest:  310x75x26mm, 800g 

 

QUALITY GUIDE: 

There may be some air bubbles on the surface due to the casting process- we think this adds to the "stone" look.  This product is sanded by hand and so the external dimensions and contours may vary slightly.  It will never be as accurate as a CNC'd product, but that is part of the charm of something literally sculpted by hand! 

Colors will be close to what you see in the photos (as far as one can tell from a phone or monitor).

CARE AND MAINTENANCE: 

The Zen Series keyboard cases (cement resin) are acid etched and then sealed for stain resistance.  They are completely waterproof.  However, it is still advised to wipe off any liquids with a cloth to avoid staining.  You can clean it with a damp cloth or for stubborn stains scrub it under running water with a toothbrush.
