gaming keyboard

With built-in modularity for everything from connectivity to switches, the TH66 from EPOMAKER is a keyboard for those who like to change things up.

Three Modes of Connectivity

There are three means of connectivity: Bluetooth 5.0, 2.4 GHz, and a USB-C wired output. Thanks to the hot-swappable sockets, it can accommodate a variety of switches, both 3 and 5-pin.

Modified Gasket-like Structure & Foam Dampener

The TH66 is neither a traditional gasket structure nor a typical sandwich mount. Instead, the TH66 seeks to discover the balance point between the traditional gasket design and the sandwich structure to fulfill the demand of soft tactile experience and typing stability.

It adopts the gaskets on the edges of the bottom case as the main contact point, which is to bring soft tactile feelings and quieter sounds. Meanwhile, a few screws are used to secure the plate and the PCB to eliminate the common complaint of using a traditional gasket mounting keyboard - lacking support in the central typing area and instability when typing hard.

On top of that, two layers of EVA sound dampening foam are fully utilized in the Epomaker TH66 mechanical keyboard.

Compared with the common sandwich mounting keyboard, the TH66 provides a softer and quieter typing experience, while offering a more stable tactile than the traditional gasket keyboard.

Aluminum Programmable Metal Knob

An aluminum knob is equipped on the upper right of the keyboard. The knob is used to turn up/down the volume; however, it can also be used as a press button. The default function of pressing is to mute the audio, but you can also program it to other functions such as play/pause, opening search function, or even some combination shortcuts like ctrl+c or ctrl + v.

Pre-lubed Stabilizers

In order to minimize the gap of typing feel and sound between the large and small keys, we have also improved the stabilizer quality and lubricated every stabilizer before packaging.

PBT Keycaps in MDA Profile & Dye-sub Technique

EPOMAKER TH66 keyboard comes with the popular EPOMAKER Theory Keycaps in unique MDA profile. Keycaps are made of top-grade PBT dye-subbed keycaps.

PBT keycaps are often considered the top choice for keycaps materials, even over ABS keycaps, as PBT is much more durable, oil-resistant (does not get shiny over time like ABS ones), and stays true to color. MDA profile is kind of a lower version of SA profile so it’s quite suitable for those who enjoy the sculpted keycaps but not too high.

Note: The TH66's top row (F row) is designed with north-facing LEDs, other rows are with south-facing LEDs. This is not any defect, and we won't accept returns because of this reason. We recommend only using Gateron SMD switches for the TH66.Β 

FAQ

About Group Buys

What is a Group Buy?

A Group Buy (or GB) is a term widely used in the keyboard community, which is super similar to crowdfunding. This is a process in which each customer unites together and uses the collective buying power to purchase goods at a reduced price or at all. Note here that products in group buy must reach a certain amount of products sold before manufacturing can start. After the buy hits its minimum order quantity (MOQ), and the GB period ends, production will begin and the shipment follows.

Group Buys from Epomaker.com are non-cancellable and non-refundable after the Groupbuys go live for 5 days. For example, a GB starts on Monday, then after Friday, we can't cancel and refund the order for you. This is because, after 5 days of the start, we usually have started to sort out the order data for mass production. Changes and cancellations will delay the overall process and ruin everyone's experience, which is the last consequence we want to see.

Each Group Buy has a "closed" date. If the group buy doesn't reach the MOQ by the end of the last day, the production will not be made, and you will receive a full refund without questions.

What are the benefits of joining a Group Buy?
  • βœ… You get to purchase and enjoy the product at the earliest.
  • βœ… Affordable prices for high-quality products. The price of a GB product is usually the lowest within at least 6 months.
  • βœ… Extras and gifts. Depending on different GBs, you might get exclusively discounted add-on products, or free gifts by joining a group buy as an early supporter.
  • βœ… Being more than a customer. You might also get to contribute your suggestion and feedback to the final product. Reasonable and realistic suggestions might be accepted and conducted to the final product. To us, there's nothing more valuable than your voice.
  • βœ… Secure, authentic, reliable, and transparent process. I bet you have done your search and noticed that there are some shady vendors who disappear after collecting money from GB supporters, regardless of whether the GB meets the MOQ or not. The first crowdfunding campaign started by Epomaker can be traced to 2020. Since then, we have successfully fulfilled at least 6 campaigns for our supporters. Time has examined us for you as well as training us to become better and better.
So I placed an order, now what?

Well, now we wait. Kindly check the timeline and schedule posted on the specific Group Buy page, and you will know how long the wait could be before production and shipment. Keep an eye on the page update and your inbox, you will get an email including a tracking number when your order is shipped. Follow our socials or join our discords, you can also find notifications and help there

Select the best switch for your style.

Before choosing what type of mechanical or optical switch, we need to understand it is mostly about preference. You need to look into what will work best for you and what you will use your keyboard for the most. Our Epomaker GK series, and some of our other keyboards allow for hotswappability. This means that even if you dislike the current switch you bought, you can swap it to another switch. Which switch you can swap to depends on your keyboard type.

Update #1: TH66 Groupbuy Campaign Shipping Date

Dear Supporters,

Thanks so much for supporting the Epomaker TH66 Group Buy Campaign!

With the campaign coming to an end, the price will be resumed to the retailing price.

This is our first Group Buy (GB) campaign, and as you can see, it's not a very big campaign joined by many backers. Some might wonder if the GB has reached the goal for production and shipment. However, we would like to announce that we will still get the GB into the normal process as per the announced schedule.

Another good news is that we can bring the shipment date forward to this 8th March! Since this small campaign's data (i.e SKU, shipment arrangement, etc.) is not very complex, we are ahead of schedule to submit an order to the factory and the whole process has been slightly speededΒ up. If your order contains other items that are backordered, it will be shipped when the items are restocked. For orders placed withΒ the express shipment, you can expect to receive the product in around 7-10 days after receiving the tracking number. For standard shipment, it is expected to arrive in 14-20 days after receiving the tracking.

Thanks again for joining this journey with us! As this is our first Group Buy campaign, we still have a lot to explore with you. What kind of features do you value the most for your keyboard? Which case materials, keycaps, or switches do you like the most? Have you been eyeing an ergo mechanical keyboard and would you like to try one? We want to know more of your thoughts! Tell us, and allow us to fulfill your wishes!

Don't be hesitatedΒ to join our Discord and Facebook Group, share your voices with us, and meet mechanical keyboard enthusiasts like you!

What's Group Buy?

A Group Buy (or GB) is a term widely used in the keyboard community, which is super similar to crowdfunding. This is a process in that each customer unites together and uses the collective buying power to purchase goods at a reduced price or at all.

A GB usually starts with an idea, and the creator often posts the idea (and sometimes renders or occasionally a prototype) to keyboard communities and forums to gather feedback and suggestions. If the idea can not attract enough interest, it may stop here without following steps.

If the idea has merit and deserves to be continued, then we come to the second step - placing an order. Note here that products in group buy must reach a certain amount of products sold before manufacturing can start. After the buy hits its minimum order quantity (MOQ), and the GB period ends, production will begin and the shipment follows. This also varies depending on different GB. Epomaker will post the timeline and shipment schedule on the GB page to keep the process being transparent as well as keeping everyone on the same page.

Group Buys from Epomaker.com are non-cancellable and non-refundable after the Groupbuys go live for 5 days. For example, a GB starts on Monday, then after Friday, we can't cancel and refund the order for you. This is because that, after 5 days of the start, we usually have started to sort out the order data for mass production.

Better than expected

I had a great experience with this group buy and am really impressed with the switches. I has bought other switches in anticipation of swapping them out, but the flamingo switches that came with it are great!
