About the Set
TTYlerdurden of C.Y.O Keycaps, Thatcliff, and Langelandia have teamed up to bring you all a keyset inspired by one of the most iconic devices in music production and beat making.
The device is a drum machine that was manufactured in the early 1980s and has continued to influence drum beats for decades. It was one of the first to allow producers to program beats instead of having to choose from preset sounds and patterns. It was discontinued from production after only 12,000 units were made. Between the difficulty of stocking the semiconductors used, and analog synthesis sounds being ahead of their time (pre-electronic/hip-hop), the machine was eventually replaced by a later model.
The device features some of the most recognizable percussion sounds in music history and has been used on more hit records (either originally, or through track sampling) than any other drum machine. The booming bass lines, crisp snare, classic cymbals, and renowned congas, cowbells, and handclaps are what make this machine's sounds so celebrated and sampled.
We are proud to say that we are partnering with the Children’s Music Fund. They are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to bringing music therapy to children affected by chronic conditions or life-altering illnesses in order to help them on their journey towards a better quality of life.
We are donating 100% of designer profit. TheKey.Company is also adding to this amount so that each Bass Kit sale will give $10 directly to the Children's Music Fund, and a portion of the sales from every additional item sold will directly contribute to the Fund.
