- Switch Puller
Got this kit for my roommate who is a real hands-on workshop DIY kind of person as a Christmas gift, and I'm really satisfied with how it turned out despite not really being a person comfortable going lower than 65%.
The only couple complaints I'll get out of the way immediately: It's an unnamed "high quality wood" which isn't really reassuring especially given the price over a normal GK61, but it's definitely some sort of synthetic wood that I honestly don't think anybody is going to be really picky about as long as it's some sort of actual wood, even synthetic. The other issue is a tale as old as time about poor stock stabilizers, but that much is certain all the time.
Otherwise, I'm very pleaseed with this kit! It actually came with the plate on the picture instead of the plate they usually offer that I almost can't describe as anything other than something between plastic and metal that has paint that easily scratches and chips off when removing switches. The actual plate feels robust and doesn't scratch as easily as the aforementioned one. I also had to do basically no modding to the case itself, it seems like the wood leaves little room for there to be much hollowness and reverberation (or it could be an inherent feature of the wood material, not sure) and it came out sounding really good. I pretty much only added Polyethylene foam between the plate and PCB as a preference to the paired NovelKey Chocolate Creams, and it definitely keeps following the trend of me making boards that I'm increasingly satisfied with over time.
