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.
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 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!!
The estimated ship date, as listed on the transactions page, is November 15th, 2018. It's anybody's guess if they hit that date.
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
are you still interested in this keyboard? i might end up selling mine.
Can you get this keyboard in Cherry MX switches?
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.
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.
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
Just using Excel.
Late to the party... Any chance for last minute buys???🤔
