Important note:

These are prototypes. What you see in the pictures is exactly what you are going to get. This exact colorway is a once-off.

The case may have slight imperfections, but it is completely fine for use! You will be purchasing the keyboard case that is shown in the photos. Since this is a prototype, there are no refunds/cancellations/returns. 

• Optional EVA case foam: +$10
• Optional cork case dampener with logo: +$14

The case will be shipped out around 7 working days after order. 

There are three keyboards- Dark Skies 1, 2 and 3. Dark Skies 1 and 3 comes with the matching wristrest. The keyboard number is shown in the pictures. Please select which one you would like. 

THE MASON60:

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 MATERIAL:

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!


FEATURES:

• 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
• Optional EVA case foam and/or cork case dampener


Note that this product is just keyboard case.  Customers will need to provide their own PCB, plate, switches and keycaps.

QUALITY GUIDE:

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. You are buying the exact product that is shown in the pictures. 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.
