Hi everyone, We’re happy to announce that the Canvas CTRL keyboards have arrived at our warehouse and shipping has begun ahead of schedule! If you haven’t received your tracking information yet, you should soon. We’re excited for you to receive your keyboard!

Extremely stoked that it's shipping early! Pleasantly surprised!
Got mine this morning and she is a beaut! Too bad I have to wait for my switches to come in... The finish is so smooth and looks like the led works this time!

I see. It's good to know that something was (((very slightly))) different than advertised. But so long as their font choice is consistent across all keycaps, that doesn't sound like anything close to a dealbreaker

Man I’m so jealous, my delivery time was changed to Saturday, I’m dying to get it.
I keep coming back here hoping someone already received their unit and is posting pictures... Mine will probably be held in customs for another week or two :^(

I will post some. Got mine this morning.
Thank you for notifying me, much appreciated. Totally forgot about this little beauty, looking forward to receiving it but the real deal here are the designed Key-caps, which really sets this whole keyboard up as a true "Classic" in the TKL world. Onya MassDrop ; )
Hi everyone, Production is well underway for the Massdrop x MiTo Canvas CTRL Mechanical Keyboard and we’re super excited to share a few production images:

We’re on track to meet the expected ship date of November 15th and we can’t wait for you to receive them. We’ll be back around early November with another update!

It was mentioned that one of the anticipated challenges was the powder coating process. Any news on how that’s progressed? In particular, have yields been as expected?
JaleesaG
This looks super nice! I can hardly wait! Will this drop be affected by the production delays the keycap drop is suffering? edit: I'll take my early shipping notice as a "No". Super excited to get this board!
Got Shipping notification yesterday, now to wait for two weeks till I get it :)
Almost makes me want to puke having missed out on this. I love my CTRL, but the color of this board is so much better. Same with the Laser ALT.
Ugh I love the color of this board! Will this and the Laser ALT show up in keyboard re-sales? O:
Hope you guys enjoy the project, here’s a less colorful option which I particularly very much enjoy!

If there’s any color combination you’d like to see or if you need assistance, please let us know.
Thank you very much for the support!

I use several, sometimes even Blender!

If you can add the option of baby blue keycaps to match the baby blue accents of the Finalmouse Ultralight Phantom I'll buy one :)
Hey everyone,
I’m pretty excited to announce the second keyboard project that I have been working on with Mito - the CTRL keyboard inspired by the awesome XDA Canvas keycap set.
For this one, we went a slightly different route than the Laser ALT. The CTRL keyboard here is not anodized, it is actually powder coated. The powder coat gives the keyboard almost a soft texture similar to ceramic finishes. Additionally, white is not an anodizable color and even though the Canvas CTRL will be in an off-white color I'm not sure that color is achievable via anodization. It is very unique and I’m a huge fan of the finish Mito picked in the end.
One final thing to note about power coating is that there is a higher chance of failure where the finish isn’t up to our standards. With anodization, there is still a possibility of saving the aluminum stock. However, with powder coating failure will result in a defective case that cannot be sold. Thus, you’ll see this keyboard is more expensive than the regular CTRL, even the barebones version.
Mito and I had decided to include both the regular gray modifiers and the Bauhaus modifiers for everyone that really wants to customize the look and feel of their keyboard. Plus I always felt the Bauhaus kit was a pretty integral part of the Canvas experience.
Finally, regarding payment. Please note that we will be collecting payment at the end of the June. This is to allow us to start prepping the powder coat cases. It’s a very involved process and we’d like to have an extra buffer to ensure smooth delivery. If this is an issue for you, please make sure to join the drop after June 30th.
As always, I really appreciate the community’s support and I can’t wait to get these in your hands.

MOQ stands for Minimum Order Quantity. In terms of manufacturing it is the threshold required to get an order placed and produced, and given the context I believe is applicable here.
@Ronon MOQ is common in keycap drops. Each kit in a drop has a Minimum Order Quantity, below which that kit might not be made. For example, the Green Screen drop's graph linked below shows an order quantity bar for each kit. Kits below MOQ are shown in yellow, kits above MOQ in green.

For this CTRL drop it looks like MOQ only applies to the optional Canvas keycap set, which is now well beyond its MOQ of 100.
Hey guys! I joined this drop back when it was available a couple months ago (and know that it will be a while yet until we receive anything), does anyone know of a projected completion/shipping date? Not in a rush, just curious about when I can start getting excited! I believe that last time for a Massdrop custom board like this it was ~10 months, will this one be similar? Thank you!!
KissGrill
The estimated ship date, as listed on the transactions page, is November 15th, 2018. It's anybody's guess if they hit that date.
John.G
Oh wow, that's a lot sooner than I thought. I must have missed that info, thanks for taking the time to reply and I'll go check out the transactions page. Thank you!
Can we pls get a re-release
13.Eon
are you still interested in this keyboard? i might end up selling mine.
Can you get this keyboard in Cherry MX switches?
Smash_69
In this most recent drop, Cherry MX Browns were offered. You could also choose not to buy any switches with the drop and buy them separately.
Jeyrad
I didn't see an option for MX brown when I placed my order so I opted in for the Halo Trues, and then found out that they might be too heavy for me :(
question...will these come with genuine cherry stabs or just cherry style? would it be advisable to replace the stabs if they're not the genuine type? I know no one has the board yet (lol) just wondering for future reference. first massdrop kb joined...i don't know if any of the past keyboards they released came with genuine stabs or simply cherry style. thanks!
Oh man I wish I didn't miss this! I'd like this exact thing with a number pad... make it happen for me, k, thanks...

Can I ask what you used to make the graph? Thanks
Mihailo
Just using Excel.
Late to the party... Any chance for last minute buys???🤔
Can we get the original one back? I missed the drop
Hoping this coordinates well with a Logitech MX Master mouse in Stone: http://mylitter.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/mouse-768x403.jpg
Very quick question before the drop ends! I would like to buy this keyboard with Halo Clears AND Kaihua Box White switches. Is this possible to do? @YanboWu Thanks for the drop - hope to hear from you!
Matt18
Unfortunately no, that would not be possible at the moment without making a bit of a mess in our backend.
Fortunately, both the box white switches and Halo switches will make their way back onto the site. I'd expect those to drop again at least once before the Canvas CTRL is fulfilled.
So pick the switches you'd like to try first and keep an eye out for the other drops. Thank you for your support!
passing on this, but waiting for a hot swappable 100% - called DEL ???
I would love if this was optionally wireless. Still all for high quality USB cables for when it is a desktop board, but I need an EDC for work.
Ugh, I want this badly! Though I cannot both this and the MiTo x ALT plus original ALT. Anyone missed out would like to trade with me? :D
Quick question! I read in this thread here that the finished textire of the board is like ceramic; does this mean that it feels sort of sandy/rough like a terracotta pot?
KissGrill
> does this mean that it feels sort of sandy/rough like a terracotta pot?
Nope, the keyboard is powder coated, like the back of an iPhone for example, it's a similar texture.
MiTo
Great thank you!
what switches does the key board come with and what is the difference between serialized and standard. I want the clicky sound so what would i choose for that if i have to do that
CloudZerro
Somewhere further down in the comments, one of the big bois who made this drop happen said that the difference between serialized and standard is that "serialized" keyboards have a serial number below 1000.
As for switches, Kailh Box White switches are the only true clicky ones, the others are either linear or tactile without a click. You best google it yourself before buying.
Here's a video of Box Whites

what is 'add 90 switches' option? Do you get additional 90 switches along with base switches?
booki
No. You get no switches by default. You need to select a set to have a full keyboard. This lets you pick the switches you want.

Hi, been an MX red fan for a while, but am willing to switch to Kailh for a keyboard as beautiful as this :^)
Out of the available switch types, the silvers seem most like the light+linear type of feel I love in mech keyboards. But I've been wondering: Does anyone know how much of a difference there is between Kailh Speed Silver switches and Kailh Box Red switches? And what's the deal with the box?
Load 1 more comment
That was a lot faster than expected, thank you.
So the main difference between the two is travel distance. Force and total travel look a lot like reds so either of these should be fine for the type that tends to bottom out. (MX Red switches: Linear, 45g - 2.0mm ish pre travel - 4.0mm total travel according to the first two hits on google)
My finger slipped and I bought the silvers, I'll be sure to update this post once the keyboard arrives! But at the moment it looks like it won't be worth the extra effort to go and buy box reds on one of the few shady websites that offer it.
jasdfhg
Please share pictures and of course, thanks a lot for the support! Hope the keyboard exceed all of your expectations chief.
Looks very nice, but this would totally destroy my eyes at night. Would love a version of this kb w/o any lights at all.

Paying for RGB keyboard to have them be off at all times seems like a great use of my money =)

It would probably cost more to have a seperete LEDless model.
