Switches are one of the most important items and the bridge between you and the input on your computer.
Did your ideal keyboard come with clicky switches, and you just want to quiet it down?
Do those linear switches leave you wanting more tactile feedback from your current switch?
Upgrade Keyboards can tackle the task of changing all, part, or just a few of the switches you need.
We carry the top manufacturers of mechanical keyboard switches, and try to keep stock of as much as possible, even the hard to find switches!
Hot Swap Upgrades
Tired of having to desolder your PCB every time you want to change switches?
Want to mix and match switches to suit your needs?
A hot swap upgrade is the perfect solution!
We can add in hot swap sockets to all, some, or even just a few switches (dependent upon your PCB) to give you the ability to change switches on the fly, without even unplugging your keyboard.
Tired of the rattling enter key yet? The most common cause is cheap stabilizers.
The majority of manufacturers use a generic stabilizer that is loose, dry plastic and metal. It detracts from the keyboard in both sound, and feel.
Let Upgrade Keyboards replace those standard stabilizers with something that will leave your fingers and ears a lot happier.
It happens. Whether it was a mistake when trying to upgrade your keyboard, or a spill while gaming, something might happen one day to ‘ruin’ your keyboard.
Don’t throw it away just yet!
Most times, the damage is something that can be reversed or permanently repaired. Let us take a look, and chances are, we can get your keyboard back to typing or gaming in no time for far less than the cost of replacing it.
Color Changes and Finishing
Sometimes, we all just get tired of looking at the same thing. It’s time for a change in your life. (psst – a new keyboard is cheaper than a new Corvette. We’re just sayin)
Have something in mind? Let us know what it is. Upgrade Keyboards offers a range of metal work and finishing including Cerakote, Powder Coating, paint, plating, polishing, and more!
If you have joined a group buy but don’t have the faintest idea where to start on putting things together – we can help.
Our build service can supply the parts you need like stabilizers, switches, and foam – with your kit of choice.
A lot of the typing experience revolves around the sound profile of your keyboard. A clunky and rattly keyboard is not going to bring pleasure to your fingers, much less your ears.
Upgrade Keyboards can tune your keyboard for the ultimate thock, clack, or click – whatever you prefer. Whether that is creating custom silicone molds of the interior of your case, adding weight, or designing and creating a custom plate or case foam – there is no job too large or small.
Want to fine tune your board with a bit more than what the original manufacturer intended? We can help.
Upgrade offers custom plates in pom, carbon, stainless, and more. We can design and create a plate for whatever keyboard you are looking for.
Have a spill? This isn't just a simple brush off...
Upgrade Keyboards deep clean service completely tears down the keyboard to the bare components - then we ultrasonic clean the keycaps, alcohol bathe the pcb/case/plate, rebuild and relube the stabilizers, and replace any foam or sound dampening. Your keyboard will come back as clean or cleaner than the day it was originally built!
