Today we look at one of the most prolific blue Alps keyboards - finally! This has to be one of the best-sounding boards ever produced - hope you enjoy the video! :)

My DC-2014 uses long white switchplate blue Alps, I think they sound better than grey switchplate ones.

One weak point of this design is the use of rubber spacers/bumpers to isolate the PCB from the case. They sort of snap into holes on the inside of the back of the board. Over time the rubber hardens and becomes brittle. Most of mine have broken in two pieces. I would love to find a replacement for them. Great video as usual.

That's probably the result of a lot of other factors. There are about 3 distinct variations of blue alps, with different top housings, leaves, springs, etc.

Chyros I have been waiting for a leading edge review for so long. Good job. I know you have mentioned the Leading edge saga for a long time. gj

Chyros, do you have a link for setting up that Pro Micro converter?

A lot of DC-2014's get parted out and I'm sure there's someone in London that could send you some, would suggest posting in the market place/want to buy section :D

I probably might have some, but international shipping would be pretty expensive.
