[GB] Keebags - Keyboard Carry Cases (taking orders until Sep 2nd)

GB post history: https://www.reddit.com/r/mechmarket/com...lable_now/
Engineering samples

The first week of the Keebag group buy has been phenomenal and I can't thank you guys enough for the support.

I've been working hard behind the scenes and I can announce that we have a US proxy!

Donutcat of Donut Cables will be proxying for US buyers meaning lower shipping rates. Woohoo!

Donutcat has set up a proxy order form here https://goo.gl/forms/K3bkzIFnXXyiKkM53 for US buyers wishing to benefit from the collective shipping saving. Fill this in (once per Keebag if requesting multiple items) and Donutcat will invoice accordingly. Then, one large order will be placed by Donutcat to me.

Anybody outside of the US should continue to order directly at https://ppkr.co.uk. US orders can still be placed directly however shipping will be a little more expensive. The trade-off is that orders placed through the proxy may take slightly longer to arrive.

For those in need of a bit of background, Keebags are a firmer, more rigid means of storing or carrying your keyboards. They're offered in a range of shapes, sizes and colours with D-rings and foam padding. Visit ppkr.co.uk for the low-down.

Options cover keyboards from an Iris to a G80-3000 and everything in between:

- Mini (160x130x90, £30)
- 40% (250x95x45, £27)
- 2-40% (250x95x90, £32)
- 60% (300x110x45, £28)
- 2-60% (300x110x90, £33)
- 75% (320x130x50, £29)
- 2-75% (320x130x100, £34)
- Ergo (230x220x90, £35)
- TKL (370x150x50, £30)
- 2-TKL (370x150x100, £35)
- 1800 (410x190x50, £32)
- 3000 (480x200x50, £35)

Everything up to a TKL size is offered as a 'double bag' allowing you to stow away two keyboards in one case like this. Similarly, you could use the additional compartment for other peripherals. Drawstring bags and shoulder straps are also on offer.

Check out the site below and, if you have any issues, you can always PM me or send over an email. This GB will run until 2nd September. At the moment, the GB should have concluded before Halloween.

Visit https://ppkr.co.uk to view the range or find out more.

Potentially idiotic question here: would the cases include a strap? (and if the cases should be black to keep prices down, would it be feasible to get colored straps, to compensate the lack of colour?)

Hey! Great questions. I know that the supplier of the cases does offer small straps however I'm waiting on a price for them. I'll definitely ask about what colours they offer, too.

Alternatively, any satchel strap on the market would work if you had something else you'd like to use :D

Won't be joining since the name has "keeb" in it.

I proxy anything, including keyboards (キーボード / 鍵盤), from both Japan (日本) and China (中國). For more information, you may visit my dedicated webpage here: https://www.keyboards.es/proxying.html

I don't know who the chap named Kee that you hate so much might be, but... as long as the legend "keebag" isn't embroidered on the side or otherwise prominently displayed in the bag, it shouldn't be that much of an issue, should it?

I'm being partially serious and partially sarcastic. I don't need a bag to begin with, but even if I did, I can't stand the word "keeb" which this was obviously modeled from.

If I was known for my ingenuity and imagination, I would be script writing in Hollywood!

Jokes aside, I went with a straightforward name for a straightforward product. No 'Keebag' branding et cetera will be on the cases.

Have you looked into getting a proxy for USA participants? I bet significant savings in shipping could be procured that way (or I could be completely wrong, of course).

FWIW, I really like the black with teal webbings. :)

I'd considered it but I don't have big ties with anybody out there. I have no issue with a few people who trust eachother doing micro-proxies though :mrgreen:

I can't help but notice that these seem pretty expensive -- especially vs. eg the bags that are sold along with the TX60s from Kin25, which sell for $45, and are really sturdy with foam.

It's fine to have that opinion :mrgreen: All I can say is that these are manufactured and procured in England with sizes chosen by me and IC participants to specifically fit keyboards. They're also not weak by any stretch of the imagination and the 10mm foam all-round is great.

For comparison, the single 60% case in this range comes in at roughly $36.50 but a double 60% is available for a few dollars more, offering even better value.

Paradigm has had a bit of a facelift! Check out the new home page.

I'll also be adding a few more sections to the site. First, I'll be sticking up a classifieds for my private sales because why not? But, going forward, I'd love to know what you would like to see in the store. Drop me a PM with items which you'd like to see more of in the UK.

And of course, the Keebag group buy is still accepting orders! We have another 3 to 4 weeks of accepting orders so there's plenty of time. As always, feel free to get in touch with any Qs.
