Plaid Gold Keyboard Kit - USB-C MX/Choc

With most modern kits its hard to say what it takes to get a beautiful, working mechanical keyboard. But the Plaid - designed by Takuya Urakawa - is a feature complete ortholinear 40% mechanical keyboard that has nothing to hide.

Unlike the original Plaid Kit the Plaid Gold Kit offers additional switch options as well as an updated USB-C connection while maintaining the accessibility of the build. It features only easy-to-solder through hole components, but is still fully equiped with everything you need to use it on a daily basis. If you need an additional macropad the Plaid-Pad will be the perfect companion.

Product features:

  • Through-hole components
  • 4x12 ortholinear layout
  • MX Style (3 or 5 pin), Choc, or Choc V2 switches
  • Easy change the keymap with VIAL GUI, no coding required 
  • QMK, VIA and VIAL compatible Microcontroller Unit (ATMEGA328P)
  • USB-C connectivity
  • Bottom plate with two different artworks on both sides

Kit Includes:

  • Main PCB, top and bottom plate
  • All required solder components
  • Transparent acrylic guard plate (3mm)
  • Brass spacers and screws
  • Self adhesive rubber feet


For transport the acryl guard plate has a bluish protection film applied, which should be removed before assembly.
The USB-C can be difficult to solder properly without using flux. If you want me to do it for you add the USB-C Soldering Service.

You need:

  • 48x MX or Choc switches
  • USB-C cable
  • Keycaps
  • Slotted screwdriver
  • Soldering equipment

You optionally need:
