Product Description
The Massdrop ALT mechanical keyboard is just like the CTRL, but with 67 keys instead of 87. Absent of function keys, it wastes no space—but it still has a full set of arrows and numerals ... Read More

Hey Friends,
Very excited for the launch of the ALT to followup the CTRL launch. 65% keyboards have always been one of my favorite form factors. It allows me to take advantage of the smaller footprint on a compact keyboard and still give me to easily access the arrow cluster and navigation cluster which I use daily - from spreadsheets to video games.
The ALT will ship with the same features that made the CTRL awesome - the firmware will be based on QMK and we will be adding it to our keyboard configurator for easy reprogramming. The same RGB lighting and customization. The keyboard also has dual USB C connections that functions as an USB hub and the PCB will ship with Kaihua hotswap sockets to allow for easy switch swapping.
This keyboard is another step in our eventual goal to make custom keyboard design more accessible to the community. We will continue to work on this line and add more offerings in the future - for example a matching numpad - since there were a lot of request for those in the CTRL drop.
For community members, this simplifies the experience of owning a custom keyboard, for community designers, this solves the hardest parts of your technical back end. This solution for designers means more projects will make the leap from concept to production, increasing the diversity of designs available to the community at large.
Thanks for your interest and support, none of this would be possible without you and the continued support of the mech keys community at large.
Last, a few administrative notes on this drop: The drop is set to end on May 24th. However, we will be doing a payment capture on April 30 so we can initiate tooling for some of the components in the ALT.

I got my first ALT a week ago and after using it for few days, I ordered another one just for the peace of mind. However, I wish you could sell the keycaps separately so I could purchase spare keycaps.

Is there any way to get higher legs on the ALT? I prefer a bit of a higher angle. Other than that, the keyboard I received today is super nice. Great build quality and although I'm not the biggest fan of RGB, these are done just right. The keycaps do look a bit on the cheaper side though, they will do for now but, most-likely a replacement is coming. BTW these Halo Clears are pretty heavy next to my Cherry MX Browns on my Ducky One 2 Mini... nice though!

We don't have stock feet that are made for a higher angle. Glad you like the board!

I am waiting to receive notification that my kb has been shipped. I bought it on the 7/10 when it indicated that the item was In Stock and would be shipped on 7/11. Now, it the phrase "Estimated Ship Date" has been added to the 7/11. Please communicate with me about the status of my purchase. UPDATE: A shipping label was generated today, 7/12. Hopefully, this is a sign of better things to come. UPDATE: According to the shipping notification, the kb was picked up by the USPS on 7/12. Additional information has been unavailable since then. I hoped that another carrier had been chosen for the delivery; the USPS has a 'mixed' reputation for the quality of its deliveries. UPDATE: KB arrived yesterday, 7/17. From order to door took 7 days - Extremely good considering delivery was free.

I was wondering if you had considered putting out a companion mechanical numpad we could hook in through the other USB C port. I don't always need one, but I would buy an optional one for when I'm working on my budget sheets or number-intensive tasks at work. Just a thought.

How come my order hasn't been shipped yet? It said the estimated ship date was July 7 and I ordered on July 5. They said they would send me an email when it was shipped but it hasn't. Please help.

I ordered it on the June 28th, so it took over two weeks, I should be getting it today! It might be different per area, but that's seems like the general path it takes.

I just got the keyboard 2 days ago, and man it's amazing. I got the Cherry MX Browns and they are awesome. Worth the wait.
