Vintage Style Keyboard

The Datamancer Aviator—each one made to order by artisan designers in the United States—is a true throwback. It’s inspired by vintage aviation design and offers a clean but industrial appeal. Though it’s USB-compatible, this custom keyboard features circular keycaps that recall an early 20th century Underwood typewriter. But don’t be fooled: The full-size layout comes complete with function keys, including Play, Stop, Next, Prev, Vol Up, Vol Down, and Mute. Every Aviator is delivered in a handmade fabric case and includes a simple guide for DIP switch configurations.

Note: This drop is limited to 25 keyboards. At checkout, choose Cherry MX Blue, Brown, or Black switches. You’ll also have the option of a Tenkeyless Aviator, plus the option of adding Painted Stems.

Fender Amp Jewels, Tandy Cowhide Face Plate & More

Finished entirely by hand, the metal components lend the Aviator an artisanal appearance. The lock lighting indicators are fashioned from genuine Fender amp jewels, and the brushed aluminum case features Steampunk-inspired cutouts and adjustable feet. Beneath the keys is a Tandy cowhide leather faceplate, while the bottom of the board is made of burnt finished wood, adding an organic touch to the Aviator. Featuring concave plastic lens covers, the keys are encased with a hand-fashioned metal ring. Making the board truly functional are Cherry MX switches.
