Heavy-6: Urbi et Orbi edition

Heavy-6: Urbi et Orbi edition

$490.00

Easter 2020 Limited Offering

This Heavy-6 is an aftermarket housing for Leopold FC660C keyboards. This special limited edition is offered exclusively in the days leading up to and including Easter Sunday 2020. It is made of polycarbonate resin, which is carved from a solid billet and then hand-finished to a frosted appearance.

Each Heavy-6 U&O Edition ships with a white Norbauer portcullis logo badge and a stainless steel rear cover plate finished with a textured white powder coat, which imparts considerable weight.

This is a made-to-order item.

Each will be individually machined and finished to order, with an anticipated shipping date of mid-summer.

Custom carry brief bundle offer

I created a special custom carry brief for the Heavy-6, with a ballistic nylon shell and soft leather calfskin accents. A 20% bundle discount will automatically apply if purchased with this housing.

Finish

The finish on these is hand-sanded and then medium-frosted, which preserves the ice-like translucency of the material. It is not quite as aggressively blasted as some polycarb keyboards, but it doesn't look unfinished either. You can control the level of frosting and maintain the finish over time as shown in the below video.

Notes

The first few orders will ship in retail boxes, which are the last Heavy-6 boxes I have left. Additional orders will be carefully wrapped and shipped in unbranded packaging.

This is a DIY housing upgrade kit, keyboard not included, which requires you to remove your FC660C from its stock injection-molded housing. This may invalidate your keyboard warranty, and by purchasing you agree to take on that project and its results at your own risk. (But, of course, that's also part of the fun.) Assembly is straightforward and I'm here to answer any questions if any questions arise during your install.
