Modding our ALT keyboard may be a tall order—but now we have the high-profile case to measure up. CNC-machined from aluminum and anodized for a vivid finish that won’t fade, it’s the same exact case featured on our standard Drop ALT High-Profile Keyboard, now in new colorways that are sure to catch eyes. Not only can this case customize an ALT High-Profile—it can also transform a standard ALT into its taller counterpart. If you’re looking to elevate yours, this is your way up.
Note: Owners of the Massdrop ALT or ALT High-Profile keyboard must add a plastic LED diffuser to install this case. To help determine if you need a new diffusor, check out this community post.
LED Diffuser (Required for Massdrop ALT Keyboards)
If you own an original Massdrop ALT or ALT High-Profile keyboard, you’ll need to purchase a plastic LED diffuser (available as an add-on here) to ensure that your new ALT High-Profile case fits properly. Owners of the newer Drop ALT or ALT High-Profile keyboard do not need to purchase this diffuser, though you can add it to your order if you want an extra.
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.

Hello. If I’m building an alt from scratch, I’ll need this case, a PCBA, the stabilizers, switches, and keycaps, correct? Do I need the LED diffuser? Am I missing anything? Thank you!
I'm sure it's just me, but can someone please tell me whether or not this item (ALT Case in Bronze) does or does NOT ship with the PCB? I really want to make a Space Race board and have the keycaps and switches.. just need the Bronze ALT (and PCB?), stabs and foams.
