The world’s most exclusive mechanical keyboards

published on July 20, 2020

If I said that's the kind of song you want to listen for hi I'm Nathan and I go by teletypes online on YouTube and twitch and I'm a content creator that creates videos regarding the custom mechanical keyboard scene so I first got introduced into the whole world kind of

Very briefly in 2013 when I was building my first nice high-end custom PC and I was in college at the time and I also majored in software engineering so knowing that I was gonna be programming I've seen dogs gonna be programmed for

The most of my life so I wanted to find the nicest keyboard that I could at the time with the budget that I had and I found the mechanical keyboard subreddit and it kind of was a rabbit hole from there not many people you know are into

Mechanical keyboards and not many people spend a lot of mechanical keyboards and when you meet someone online who has that same shared interest as you there's this automatic level of connection that you can certainly start talking with

Them about so in the keyboard community everything in general is made in a limited run because all these projects are mostly run by community members they're not made by large corporations large companies you get other people to

Join on your project so you bring the cost down and then once the project's done that's kind of it so if you miss out on that project there's no way for you to get it other than buy on the aftermarket

I think the platforms are definitely integral and growing the community but I think more so than that is just the fact that we share this silly hobby I think that's what brings people together for a lot of newcomers I think it's a very

Interesting and novel thing to see someone building a keyboard from scratch I mean I first I sure didn't know how a keyboard was built until I don't deep into the Hobby so I think there's that novelty factor for a lot of new people

And most likely for new people I'm mostly dealing with parts that they have never seen or even heard of so I think there's that for a lot of returning members who have been watching me for a long time

I think it becomes less about the keyboard to be honest and more about just hanging out with me what am i cutting ah yes I forgot to explain so your stabilizer has come like this so you can see how there's these two little

Prongs that are sticking out so when you bought him out it prevents the stabilizer from hitting evenly so I definitely wasn't the first content creator for the mechanical keyboard scene to arrive but one thing I think

That I provided differently was I kind of made the media easy to consume for newcomers feel like razors gonna hate me after this is what this keyboard sounds like I think certain people have different preferences for me

I think acoustics I would prioritize over feel my viewers know that and when they come into my stream we generally talk about how a certain build sounds at the end quite a bit they don't sound that foggy

Yeah I mean these are teleost though Te'o's aren't generally known for their thok they people consider to have a higher pitch but they're really smooth switches do feel pretty nice I wouldn't say this is universal but generally if

You ask keyboard community enthusiasts they will say the sound they strive for is called a it's called a flock it's kind of like a nice not very high-pitched kind of low-pitched deep now to describe it this is just a

You know when you hear it but there's no way to really predict what its gonna sound like I've been streaming under the makers and crafting category but when you look at the numbers between the people of

Looking at channels streaming under the makers and crafting category versus like any other category it's it's massive discovery has been hard and the one thing that's helped me to stay alive is being noticed by these big gamers who

You know bring exposure to my channel I believe my first big client was a streamer named yeast troll MC you can consider him the first biggest client that kind of kick-started my career our brand new keyboard yeah at the time I

Just realized ok there's tons of people out there these pro high-profile people on Twitch who show their keyboard every day that's their job they work on a keyboard they show it off some people have hand cams on their g-strings and

Why can't maybe i should target these folks these are the kind of people who might be interested in the keyboards that I'm building I think P foo probably is the biggest client undoubtedly that I've had so far and and his first

Message I believe was like what's the most expensive keyboard you can build me obviously so we started working from there I reached off the key caught one of my sponsors now and they also produce high-end luxury custom keyboards and

They also have their commissioned service of their own but I work with them on my own service as well so we started working from there it was a multi month project you just hear the pure

And it was finished finally finished in January of this year and getting that off my plate was such a big relief I'm very glad he liked it oh my god dude this thing is nuts I mean at first I thought it would just be a side gig that

I would do at home to de-stress on the weekends last September I decided to quit my job full-time my friends and boss they had no idea why I would leave a secure programming shop in the Bay Area to pursue a career in content

Creation but it's more working out so far it's left me with a couple things I guess one being you know maybe I can do more stuff like this that people enjoy and that people watch and then there's also the stress of how can i top this

Now like I've landed T foo what's next for me to the Stags to
