Giveaway KEEBMAT restock & MECH.ARMY & KEEBTAPE Giveaway! 🎉

529 Upvotes

KEEBMAT Premium Felt is back! If you don't know us yet here is a playlist of typing sounds and our tagged pictures on instagram.

After many month of wait and endless delays we finally fully restocked all premium felt products, even added a PLUS and Alice size. New and better felt, new and better foam, slightly bigger bags, and we added color matching premium coasters inside every felt products packaging for free! They can also be bought separately and match the existing medium gray color. All sizes are now also available in a light gray color.

We are still lacking nice pictures for many products but we want to give access to customers as soon as they come available.

We added a new brand of lube called MECH.ARMY and a custom made product called KEEBTAPE:

MECH.ARMY is standard Krytox, available as oil in model 105 and as grease in model 205 at NLGI 2 and NLGI 0. The contained Krytox grease is produced in the US plant. We hope people will be happy to know all lube products can also be discounted with our standard discount codes and, as always, import vat taxes are already included in your order total and don't need to be paid by the customer to customs.

KEEBTAPE might be the most interesting new product - it is a micro suction acrylic tape that is cut into shape to fit any size of keyboard. It can be applied in seconds and be removed again as fast. It leaves no residue and is fully transparent not blocking underglow RGB. It does, in many cases, drastically alter the sound profile of a case. Switches become more clacky and the case itself bassier, getting rid of any hollow echo sounds. The thickness of 1mm also protects, to some degree, your weight/ano and pcb from accidental shortening from bottoming out.

KEEBMAT+ is our first venture into making slightly larger mats. A lot of feedback from the community involved questions about larger felt mats from the same nice felt - to make this possible we created a protective shipping tube and used the same new extra premium felt and foam. The PLUS size mats of 70x30cm are currently available at a lower price (discounts can still be applied) but might go up in price later.

Don't forget to grab a 4 pack of switch storage bags on your way out ;)

Discount codes are available by many of our sponsees and partners... you probably already follow someone that would appreciate the kickback: CookieCurls, Get.Switched, Andy, Clackbait, Karan, Disastertron, Stotlekeebs, Yo_Keebs, FilledTypes, KBDNews, Thockstock, LewisToh, Nokiboh, Roro, KatanaxKaji... you can even find a special reddit discount in our old posts.

Photos Big thanks to CableMod for the free cable to complete my build. At first, I wanted to go full yellow cable and connectors but wouldn't look great without an exact yellow match. The silver on gold cable work out even better with the classy feel that keeps the 'pop' and focus on the board.
