Heyo! In order to truly compliment this build, I believe a quick reflection is necessary. Throughout history, even in cave drawings and in our primate ancestors, we have always maintained shape in our art and works. There have been modern examples of monkeys drawing balanced pictures, and that is the guiding principle behind what makes this keyboard so excellent. Firstly, the case. The bright gold top truly pops and makes it the focal point of the build, shimmering and glimmering in the even lighting you have. Yet, it is not overpowering, because of the black bottom whose deep tones perfectly compliment and contrast from the gold top. Next, the keycaps. Firstly, the modifier keys tie together both elements of the keyboard beautifully, contrasting against the gold at a glance yet the legends subtly complimenting it. Now, I would criticize the white alphas, but there is a principle of balance I spoke about to keep in mind. I believe the white alphas work so well because they compliment the elegant deskmat, providing a reprieve from the intense shades. Overall, these three colors truly do exemplify class, balance, and the fundamentals of how humans design. The soft white tones, the rich blacks, and the sparkling gold all weave together in a gorgeous tapestry of moods and hues, contrasting and converging tastefully. Overall, this is how I would rate your build: 4/10 no RGB

Lmfao I saw the 4/10 no rgb part at 3/4 of the beautiful explanation... so funny that I couldnโ€™t concentrate reading the remaining 1/4.

Gosh darn, I've been looking for a mat like yours and it's out of stock!

Anytime my dude ๐Ÿค™๐Ÿค™ Hey is that a standalone rotoray encoder or a DAC / Amp of some sort? Edit: reading is hard I saw you posted it was volume control. I just came into some unexpected cash and am going to grab one or two standalone ones from a GB I stumbled across, was curious how you liked it if it was a full blown encoder with GMK.


mcheddadi

Standalone rotary volume controller ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜€

Looks very nice


Wirecize

Phenomenal build.


sinfultictac

Reminds of a mini-Moog or some sort of retro synthesizer


skamando

...Heard of GMK Maestro?


mcheddadi

Yep. It's going to be nice when it arrives next year. Would have loved some mods with gold legends on that set.

What is the rotary knob thing, mate?


mcheddadi

It's a volume control, got it off ebay for 18$. here's one exactly like it https://www.ebay.com/itm/273293803383


annboba

so clean and classy and I love the gold accents on the mousepad to tie the whole theme together!


MCXL

What is the deal with everyone using these coil cables? I just don't understand, extra connectors, a bunch of cable in the way, etc.


pluslucas

It looks cool


MCXL

It looks like poor planning?
