Where's the price?
To negotiate the best possible price for our members, we must agree to hide our prices externally.



I'm not one to gripe over the prices but has anyone who works for Massdrop done some research? - Walnut w/o wrist wrest costs $159.00 on Datamancer's site vs $160.99 on Massdrop. - Datamancer direct will be delivered sooner than May 1st (did a double take bc March seemed reasonable, but May??)
Why would a customer wait 3+ months to lose $1.99? I'd love to join the drop and would offer @Datamancer the following suggestions: - The wood choice should not incur any price increase - The price is too darn high, as someone with compulsive spending habits and a decent job the price point is approximately $20 too high. Understandably if this is a small operation you'd prefer to maximize profit for a smaller count of sales. I just argue that you'd make a greater profit by charging less to customers, thus gaining a larger overall sale count.
When I contemplated buying a set the thought occurred I might as well buy the matching wrist wrest! But at a total cost $185.99 for a case + wrest, the price point seems a bit out of touch ;-) Cheers
Edit: others mentioned this price increased from $120, which is a price I would consider a deal. This is a group buy @ cost and something I can make directly from the vendor website. Please try again, Im sure other would be customers would appreciate it.

Exactly the reason I'm not buying. I requested but it makes more sense to buy directly. Plus on his site it comes stained.
Does this fit the LE or RGB versions of the Poker 3 as well?
Can it still be closed with higher keycaps like SA profile?

Thank you for the info LevelSteam! Indeed, I have the LE but I'm keeping that one the way it is with it's heavy case. I have a modded Poker 3 with white leds and SA caps so it's a shame they didn't make the lid a bit higher. After all it's keyboards like that at which this case is aimed at. Nice wooden case though.
Luna55
Yeah I agree. It would be fairly easy to make a wood or acrylic spacer so the lid would fit. I keep saying I'm going to do that and replace the straps on mine with buckles but I never quite get around to it. Still looks good and feels even better with SA profile caps though.
Looks like these were originally $120 in the first few drops. Why have these risen so much? Plus, configuring the options to match the walnut options on their site with the same one here results in them being $3 less here. Not much savings.

Massdrop started taking bigger percentages from sellers compared to when this case was first dropped. There were increased prices site wide. Maybe Datamancer couldn't afford to lower their prices when Massdrop did that?
Any thoughts on whether I'd be able to make the xd75 fit in this case? I know the standoffs will probably be in the wrong place.
They need to chill with the price ):

Thank you for the clarification
I have one of the these from a different drop and I personally really like it/feel that it's worth the money. I have a couple other wood frames from sites like KBDfans that are nice for their respective price (about $70) too though.
Need some advice on for a set I am planning out, these are the components: 60% board GMK camping set green leds this case in walnut R9 Blue Zilent Switches
Can anyone recommend a board and frame? There is one option I am considering for the board which is linked below. Also, are all these parts compatible, am I missing anything? I did my research but I like being double checked before I drop a couple hundred dollars on a new build. https://zealpc.net/collections/group-buy-pre-orders/products/zeal60rgb

I have a zeal60 in a datamanacer case, works mostly great. The one issue is that the zeal doesn't put the reset button in the same place as the dip switches on the poker. So to flash new firmware onto the zeal I need to remove it from the case.
kevin8715
I'd probably use a GH60 PCB from kbdfans.cn, a 60% plate from the same site and your choice of switches of course.
Does anyone know if this would fit the banana split? I have been using this on my pok3r for almost a year and just bought the banana split v2.
Someone asked about the case being flat and I shot some pictures of mine. I had a few different profiles so I figured I'd add the to the general discussion. Very cool case, and the reverberation with a wood case is very unique. :)

Any SA row 1 keys will be depressed slightly when the lid is on, the lid kind of floats, once the straps are applied the r1 keys are compressed.
sleepybrett
Thankyou for the info. It's a shame they didn't make the lid a little higher then, such a nice case would have been beautifeul with my Poker 3.
Please release: FC660C Machinist case, HHKB Seafarer case etc. Your target customers will then all have this "premium priced" mindset. Please keep in mind your market positioning and release the expensive ones for the high end consumers! Make it limited too.
I'm a tad confused with the pricing. Does it come with a Pok3r?
NolandC
Nope, this is just a case and wristrest.
This is so beautiful, but at the price point it's hard to pull out my wallet. I got to play with one at the PDX Reddit Global Meetup day event and it is every bit worth the price. Maybe one day..
Is this case a flat case. I saw pretty much all the pictures but not really sure cause everyone wants to show off the caps with a from-the-top shot :)))). A picture from a side would be nice.

I don't have any recommendations for specific products, but your best bet is something that glues on to the bottom. Adding large feet might negate the usability of the leather straps though.
I recently bought one from the site, it came with some flat rubber feet. However I wasn't to keen on sticking them on, instead I cut a piece of some thin anti slip rug stuff from ikea (http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/80227877/) , i cut it so that it fits in the top of the case, when I'm using the board on something slick, i just lay that under the case.
Will this match Planck PCV https://olkb.com/planck/pcb
mblarsen
Nope, we have a separate Planck Hardwood case here: https://www.massdrop.com/buy/datamancer-planck-hardwood-keyboard-case

i guarantee you have at least one wood item in your house... lol
i'd probably be in if there was a black option
Could this in theory be used for an Alps64 PCB?
salvanipour
Looks like a standard hole configuration, so I don't see why not. I have a different wooden case that I'll be putting my ALPS64 pcb into.
Is there any way a limited run of these could be crafted for the New Poker II?
I know they did a big bungle by putting the USB connection on the opposite end of most of the other 60%. However, it is still a great keyboard, but with limited aftermarket options.
how are these coming? are they on track for delivering on time?
evangs
Hey Evan, yep, they actually all shipped out yesterday. You should be getting tracking soon if you don't already have it.
Datamancer
I got my notifications, thanks! Excited to get this case
will it work with anne pro ?
dounedinini
I did a little bit of digging regarding replacing the case on the anne pro. According to MechType, "As it stands no aftermarket 60% cases are compatible with the Anne Pro. It has non-standard screw boss placements. Further complicating the issue it requires space to store the internal battery. The only option would be to mod or customize one yourself". Comparing the screw hole layouts for the datamancer case and what the anne pro's stock case, you can see that they're not entirely compatible. Plus, you have to take into account the battery of the anne pro.

smeh... thank you for the anwser
Hi , does anyone know is this fit the ikbc new poker 2? https://www.massdrop.com/buy/new-poker-ii-mechanical-keyboard Thank you guys.
Toxinnn
I believe not due to the placement of the USB-C connector being on the right instead of the left like the pok3r keyboard. It also two PCB parts.

Will a pcb with zeal screw in stabs fit in this case ?

Yes, that's what I'm using http://imgur.com/KB806kR
So this does or does not fit a Pok3r RGB?

This does fit the RGB. Be careful when screwing it in, as it can pull the anchors free from the wood.

I took a few quick photos of my Datamancer which I've recently received from the last drop for anyone who may find it helpful. Overall, I've been quite satisfied with the purchase.

I totally agree. Beautiful keeb regardless.
Soo... a stained wood case where the only options are unstained?
Load 2 more comments
I'm assuming that means that it has the protection similar to that of a stain, but retains the original color of the wood?
Pandabum
Yes. Personally I prefer the look of the natural black walnut to other frames on here which are overly dark (in my opinion) due to being stained.
Does fit for Pok3r 3?

Yup that keeb will definitely fit
RuckisTheRare
Thank you very much for explanation! I will join drop :)
Why is the case and wrist wrest a separate part? Couldn't the lid of the case serve as a wrist wrest? It the height not right for that use?
Load 1 more comment
Thanks for the response! Having both in one unit would be neat. I see what you are saying about the size and also not having an angle.

This is a sizing comparison.
I'm sorry, did the price go up again? Even without the wrist set?
does it fit GH 60?
Marutk
Yes, that's what I'm using
Dang everything I've been waiting for popping up at once...would join this drop if it got extended a week
