Inspired by the Chinese ink painting, with its undulating landscapes.
This is a super unique keyboard design and there is only 1 of it! This keyboard is a prototype, and has not been part of any group buys.
The case may have slight imperfections, but it is completely fine for use! Since there is only 1 of this keyboard, there are no refunds/cancellations/returns.
• Optional EVA case foam: +$10
• Optional cork case dampener with logo: +$14
The case will be shipped out 2-5 working days after order.
In terms of design philosophy- I designed the shape of the Mason60 case to highlight the uniqueness of the material. I wanted a fat top bezel to show off the surface pattern and a chunky profile with very round edges which fit the "heavy" and "smooth" feel of stone or marble.

The Mason60 is cast from a gypsum resin composite. Once the case is demolded and then sanded, it almost feels like marble- cold and smooth. It's heavy, impact resistant and sounds great!
• Individually hand-crafted keyboard case and wrist rest- every single item passes through my hands
• 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

There may be some small air bubbles on the surface due to the casting process. Due to the hand made nature of this product, no two pieces will be identical in terms of pattern. 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 Mason60 is sealed with beeswax and is water resistant, but please wipe off any moisture straight away to avoid leaving a mark on the wax coating. Please also keep your Cheetos away! Clean with a damp cloth and if needed you can reapply some wax (you can use Vaseline), though this shouldn't be needed for a long while.
While strong and impact resistant, it will shatter if you drop it from a height onto a hard surface. It will scratch if impacted with something sharp, but minor scratches can be sanded out.
ABOUT BRAZEN STUDIO:
We are a product design studio based in Hong Kong, specializing in creating beautiful cast objects! We are currently focused on keyboards and also offer a line of coffee accessories (pretty sure there is a sizable overlap between these interests!). As we make everything inhouse, we have more direct control over quality and timeliness vs outsourcing the manufacturing.
