We're excited to announce SP-Star as our newest manufacturing partner! SP-Star has been making waves in the keyboard industry since opening their doors in April 2020. We were very impressed by their initial switches, and we're sure that we'll make amazing things happen through this partnership.
Our First Release
The SP-Star Magic Girl switches are here! They're being prepared for release and will be available for purchase this Friday, July 23rd at 5 PM EST. It's been a few months since the pre-order back in December 2020, but we are excited to finally get these into your hands!
Our SP-Star Magic Girl switches are a 67g tactile featuring nylon housings and POM stems. You can find more information on these switches, including a force travel diagram, on our product page here.
Early reception from influencers has been fantastic, and many on the TKC team have been using the switches since receiving them earlier this year. Don't take our word for it, check out the following reviews and sound tests—
With our new partnership, we'll be able to bring the keyboard community a consistent supply of new colors, materials, spring weights, and colorways. Take a look at this preview of the latest batch of prototypes we received!
Along with new materials, we're exploring other exciting options, including glow-in-the-dark switch housings and clear stems. There's a lot to explore here, and both us and SP-Star are eager to have you try them out.

Just like our relationship with JWK, each of our partnerships is born from months of collaboration on how we can further elevate our products. Working with SP-Star directly will allow us to improve our quality assurance processes, experiment with new and exciting switch concepts, and better distribute switches through proxies around the globe. We're incredibly excited about this, and we hope you are too.
That's all for today. Make sure to be around for the in-stock drop of SP-Star Magic Girl switches this Friday, July 23rd at 5pm EST!
