If you wish to purchase a kit that is ready to assemble with all required parts, please see the Candybar Premium Round 3 page here.
This CandyBar Barebones kit doesnotcome with all the parts needed to build a complete keyboard. You'll need to buy separately:
Stabilizers– these prevent the bigger keys on your keyboard (e.g. the spacebars) from wobbling. You'll need four 2u stabilizers and one 6.25u stabilizer, depending on your layout.
Switches– these determine the sound and feel of your keyboard. You'll need at most 62 switches. We recommend buying 70 so you'll have some extras.
Keycaps– what your keys look like. The CandyBar has a '40%' layout, so you'll typically need a keyset with a 40s Kit in addition to a base kit. Keyset kits can vary quite a bit, so pay close attention to what's included in them when you buy.
We wrote some introductory articles that cover keyboard basics onKeyboard University. Learn about what a 40% keyboard is, what the differences are among switches, and more 🎓
