Update Dec 02, 2019 Cases are out of QC and shipping this week to TKC. Some had to be sent back for rework, so we will fulfill FCFS. We ordered many extras so I feel confident most who joined the original buy should get theirs in the first batch. The keysets are still in production so if you ordered your CB Prem with a keyset, drop us a line and we can split the order for a small shipping fee.
Update Sept 27, 2019 Cases are in QC, almost finished. Now to get them on a boat and get them to the USA. Ill update every few weeks as I get a more solid delivery date. Were getting close!
Update 04 Sept 2019 Factory is behind on production. We sold over twice the amount of keyboards as expected and the anodizing factory is overwhelmed. The aluminum plates and cases are behind, the rest of the project is on time. New delivery date is an ESTIMATE. It might be sooner, it might be later. I will keep this page updated as I get more information.
Extras (limited) will be available once orders are shipped to customers and verified delivery.
The numbers below represent the MOQ (Minimum Order Quantity). They are the minimum number of sets required for production. This product is not limited.
174 ordered out of 10 required
