Sound Test: TX-CP Vintage Brown 64g springs Modern Beige PBT

I used my Oco Modern Beige Purple Hangul as my first keyset of choice for my TX-CP. I sound I believe is still different from how it sounds now since the springs and switches have since broken in. But just to give you guys an idea on how it sounds like on newly built Vintage cherry mx brown with 64g korean springs.

The keyboard is still kinda quite so you may have to turn up the volume for this one

Being in the keyboard game means not only talking/dealing about different keycaps and profiles. It also means dealing with different type of plastics used with keycap manufacturing. Aside from ABS which is the common plastics used with your keyboard or stock keyboard keycaps. There is also PBT which has a different texture and also has different qualities compared to ABS plastic. Common reasons people want to use pbt is because they do not shine as fast as normal ABS plastic, they are not as susceptible to fingerprints or dirt accumulation compared to ABS. If you want to know a lot more about PBT plastic Wikipedia has nice information about it.

This modern beige set that I have came from Originative it is basically like Gateron think pbt or maybe enjoypbt. 1.5mm thick and the feel to it is quite nice. PBT is nice to type on from time to time but if you follow this website you would know that I am more on thick abs specially the Signature Plastics SA profile keycaps. Nonetheless think PBT like these are nice for someone who likes cherry profile keycaps.

Here is what my modern beige looks like and what came with the kit that I got

I just had to do it. I did not use the stock keycaps that came with the keyboard and installed put in a set of my GMK Carbons. For some reason or another this GMK set seems to match every keyboard that I own. I am happy with the results on how it looks like now. Hope you enjoy it
