Add a Little Color to Your ALT

Searching for new ways to customize your ALT keyboard? We’re on the case—literally. Returning to the same proven CNC-machining process used to make the original ALT, we’ve built a brand-new line of aluminum cases in five custom colorways. Inspired by the gray and earthy tones that define Drop keyboards, these colors look right at home on any ALT—all while adding an unmissable accent that mech keys modders will love. Anodized with a vivid, non-toxic finish that won’t fade, each case comes with matching aluminum magnetic feet for easy height adjustment. All hardware and rubber pads are included.

Note: Owners of the Massdrop ALT keyboard must add a plastic LED diffuser in order to install a new case.

At checkout, you will have the option to add-on a Drop ALT PCBA and stabilizers.

LED Diffuser (Required for Massdrop ALT Keyboards)

If you own an original Massdrop ALT keyboard, you’ll need to purchase a plastic LED diffuser (available as an add-on here) in order to ensure that your new ALT case fits properly. Owners of the newer Drop ALT keyboard do not need to purchase this diffuser.

Add-on Drop ALT PCBA

Open up our compact ALT keyboard, and you’ll find its PCBA: the assembled printed control board, and the party responsible for many of the ALT’s crucial functions. It’s among the best in its class—and now, it’s available to buy as a standalone component. Home to all electronics on the ALT, the PCBA handles everything from custom key commands to custom RGB settings. It also houses the ALT’s hot-swappable switch sockets, which allow users to change switches without soldering; as well as the RGB LEDs themselves, which create over 16 million unique colors for brilliant backlighting. Read reviews for the ALT, and you’ll see that the PCBA performs these functions and more with exceptional execution. If you want to build a compact keyboard that does the same, this is a must-have component.

Add-on Everglide Panda Gold-Plated Stabilizers

Take your PCBA one step closer to a completed board with a set of Panda Gold-Plated Stabilizers from Everglide. True to their name, these stabilizers feature gold-plated alloy wires, which have superior hardness and oxidation resistance compared to traditional metal wires. The stabilizers themselves are made from a lightweight and durable polymer and manufactured in a high-precision mold to minimize noise when typing.

I'm confused. If the diffuser is required, then why is it optional? Can I install an add on pcb without the diffuser?

Well some people might want a new colored case for the complete alt they bought in the past, so they already have the Diffuser. But if you go with buying the alt in parts you need the diffuser.Read More
