The Poet

Overview

A sonnet is a 14-line poem featuring a fixed rhyme scheme, and in English will usually have 10 syllables per line.

The Mode Sonnet is a truly amazing keyboard, boasting a premium typing experience and simple assembly. The configuration shown here is an e-white top, brass bottom, weight, and accent, POM full plate, and a hot-swap PCB. Mode's e-coating is flawless and smooth, and the PVD-coated brass equally impressive. Built with the stack mount method using the silicone base and plate foam installed, the Sonnet feels consistent and there is a small amount of flex if pressed on. The configuration code is V0G1B2C3G4B5B6B7B8B9A for those interested.

For switches, this build features Wuque MM customs that use UHMWPE upper/lower housings, LY stems, and 53g tri-stage springs. They are criminally smooth without lube, have no leaf tick, and only subtle spring crunch (if any at all). Films and lubing the switch are unnecessary, but bag lubing the springs might be a good idea. Keycap choice was intended to match the white and gold color theme, so GMK Civilizations was an easy buy. The brass kit adds some color to the set.
