Garnet smacks on silver!


SICK. Damn, maybe I should pickup garnet!


Installed some #7 deskeys rings yesterday; was deciding between that and the #3 silicone I ordered but these sounded a lot better on this one for me. This is one of the first high end keyboards I owned, purchased new in 2010 as a high school graduation present from the now-defunct elitekeyboards.

I want to ask: would anyone be able to point me in the direction of an updated breakout board with elevated usb capabilities? This thing doesn’t take anything modern and I really actually appreciated its use case back in the day.

Additionally, and this may be a stretch, but I’m always on the lookout for black busgamer/idea23 hipros since seeing this video. I do like the oem caps and I’ve even heard that they were physically a little different before, but I want some new caps for this baby and these would be awesome so throwing it out there, never had the hundred thirty or the time to wait that point a couple years ago when he was putting out batches.

Anyway this board is great and using it is not only much more tolerable, now it’s enjjoyable. Thanks!


Haven’t heard that name in hot min! I still have some of both there lubes stashed in my collection. The idea23 hipro caps are gonna be a hard find, but I’ll keep an eye out when I’m browsing mechmarket & such. If I happen to come across a set I’ll let you know!

Edit: Also forgot I still have Switch Hitter on a USB drive too! :rofl:


Hey, nice! I still have a tube of ekmechlube2 for topre sliders—works like a charm. I’d love to come by a set!!!
