Yeah, after I got my first mech, a week later I ordered a second to use at work.

My office space is probably better than most peoples home set ups in terms of accessories.

I have my QF XT, a kroean 1440p monitor, razer naga, and a nice chair.

I'd build my own computer for work if they would let me, but thats where they draw the line.


Every day I love blacks more and more, they honestly ( with pbt caps ) are not any louder than the ladies i work with using cheapo dell boards.

Yeah, I luckily don't have to worry about sound.

I have my own office and only one office to the side of me, and when I was testing out my Filco (with MX Blues) I apologized for the noise--he said he couldn't even hear it. So I'm all good thumb.gif

Currently I don't have any peripherals from home at work, and probably the only thing I would bring is a keyboard.

I was also considering buying a pair of these though and bringing them to the office:



They're practice pedals for drums. That way I can work on my foot technique while I'm sitting here all day anyways. smile.gif

i'm fine with sound ( used some blues at work for a little bit ) Since i'm at work 40+ hours a week, I feel i might as well work on proper equipment than the office issued junk.

but blacks sound so nice compared to the reds i've been using for the past few months.

not as plastic-y sounding, more a dull thud. Its nice...

also discovered that I don't like the mionix, since the left windows key is replaced by a Fn key, so the keyboard is useless if you use windows shortcuts or nearly anything in OSX.
I'm still trying to figure out why reds on that case are so much quieter than reds on my others.

I've been testing ways to help quiet down a keyboard ( without o-rings, landing pads, etc ) , but everything I've tried so far has not had any noticeable difference, but I do have a few more ideas I've not tried.

Some got sent to me, others I bought. 

 

About a 50/50 split. I gave most of them away, I currently have the IBM, Dell, Ducky, & Deck in my personal collection with the modded DK9008 being my daily driver. 

 

I have the Deck as backup, the Dell & IBM are just sorta momentos as they were my first mechanical boards I purchased when I upgraded off domes. 

 

Though I did use a Model M in the past as well as the Apple II keyboard because my family both had machines with those boards but they long since left the household when I build my first PC like 10 years ago.

I think I might try o-rings on my board to see how it feels. I don't know how it would be on blues but if I get another board with different switches I'd probably throw o-rings on them.

Try them out if you can!

I think they actually feel pretty good, I tried them out at the store a while back. Seem to be nice for time spent in front of the computer for a while.

They can also be used to hit cowbells and such or trigger electronics, though I'm not sure if you need to buy the striker/beater separately.

BTW, since I forget, what electric kit do you have again? Rolands?

It's a customised Yamaha kit, 4 toms, 3 cymbals (although need a new trigger brain to use more than 2), hi-hat, double bass pedal and the snare off a DTXtreme.

If those practice pedals could trigger the trigger brain that would be awesome, do you have a link?
