Very Nice, Although Expensive, Keyboard Kit!

Everything was exactly as I expected out of the box. A few observations:

- The included stabilizers were pre-lubed nicely and didn't sound bad.
- The pre-included case foam is extremely thin, likely with the goal of providing more flex. Adding thicker material will do a better job to dampen sound, but will reduce flex.
- There is a bit of case ping from the aluminum case, despite the factory-installed force breaks and case foam. Using sorbothane or neoprene as a case foam resolves the issue nicely, at the cost of reducing flex compared to the stock case foam. Otherwise be aware that you may hear a slightly metallic aftertone.

Adding a thicker force break / gasket between the top and bottom case gave me enough room for both a better case foam AND a flexible typing experience. That extra millimeter or two is well worth it!
