So all customs now? That’s kind of a bummer.
I guess I’ll look forward to seeing what you’re going to do in the future.
As of today, it’s all a limited edition.
With the Heavy Grails shipping soon, I feel like I’ve now tackled all the interesting problems in the world of Topre, so it’s time to drop the mic and move on before things become tedious. As of the end of this year, I will no longer be producing Topre housings.
Thus what I currently have for sale is pretty much all that there is or ever shall be.
While the getting is good…
I wanted to share this news with you, loyal subscribers to my newsletter, before posting about it elsewhere online, because I’ve noticed in recent months that there seems to be a pretty vigorous (to put it diplomatically) secondary market for stuff that I make. And I’d obviously rather sell my remaining inventory to the actual end users of my products than from someone just flipping a board and adding no value.
Here is what we have left (including available spots among items still being manufactured and slated for completion before the end of the year):
- the Heavy-9 (limited finishes)
- the Heavy Grail (limited finishes and plate options)
- the Norbaforce Mark II (limited finishes)
- Frosted Norbaforce
- Frosted Heavy-6
- Frosted Norbatouch
I do have in mind one or two potential additional limited holiday offerings before the end of the year, but I’m still waiting to confirm prototypes on those.
The keyboard adventure is just beginning.
This doesn’t mean that I’m done with keyboards. For one thing, our increasing volume of bespoke work will continue, including custom Topre aftermarkets. I also have some other technically ambitious projects that I’ll be able to elucidate in 2022, and I’ve been exploring a podcast idea that I’m really excited about, digging a bit deeper into the culture and psychology of luxury keyboards.
Stay tuned for some very different creations in 2022, and few quirky one-off projects in the meantime. Thanks, as always, for sticking with me and being interested in my explorations and experiments.
