Our CTRL keyboard is a big deal—and now we’ve got the high-profile case to prove it. 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 CTRL High-Profile Keyboard, now in new colorways that are sure to catch eyes. Not only can this case customize a CTRL High-Profile—it can also transform a standard CTRL into its taller counterpart. If you’re looking to elevate yours, this is your way up.
Note: Owners of the Massdrop CTRL keyboard must add a plastic LED diffuser in order to install a new case. To help determine if you need a new diffusor, check out this community post.
LED Diffuser (Required for Massdrop CTRL Keyboards)
If you own an original Massdrop CTRL or CTRL High-Profile keyboard, you’ll need to purchase a plastic LED diffuser (available as an add-on here) to ensure that your new CTRL High-Profile case fits properly. Owners of the newer Drop CTRL or CTRL 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 CTRL PCBA
Inside every CTRL keyboard is a high-performance PCBA—an assembled printed circuit board—that brings it to life. For the first time ever, we’re bringing that same PCBA to our community members as a standalone component. Home to all electronics on the CTRL, the PCBA is responsible for everything from custom key commands to custom RGB settings. It also houses the CTRL’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. Take a quick look at reviews for the CTRL, and you’ll see that the PCBA handles these responsibilities at a near-unrivaled level of performance. If you’re looking to build a board on that same level, this is your flagship foundation.
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.

Top Customer Questions25
If you get this, the pcb, the diffuser, stablizers, keycaps, and switches, do you need any other parts? Do you still need to buy the Original Drop CTRL High Profile barebones?
Is there a guide on how to build a keyboard from scratch with this case? IE what components are needed. I wanted to know if there's a guide for changing the case in an existing ctrl high profile keyboard?
