But since Brian no longer carries the Filcos, ianx's best bet is to ask him if he can exchange his Filco for a Leopold in hopes of getting a keyboard that doesn't end up with this problem later on down the road. I mean, it's worth a shot even though I think it's safe to assume Brian will say No.
So we're not saying that it's all about the brand name or anything like that. But we're saying that it sounds like his might be defective somehow, so replacing it seems to be the best option.
So in other words: yeah, we know that it seems to be a problem with the switches.
