Greetings, esteemed Retro Gang! Allow me to introduce ourselves, MM Studio, the craftsmen behind bespoke retro keyboards that reflect the nostalgia of a bygone era. Our moniker, MM, denotes “Minimal Makeover,” an emblem of our ethos to blend modernity with minimalism.
Our desire was to create a retro-inspired keyboard design that incorporates the latest technological advancements, and the Class Series keyboard is a product that symbolizes retro and minimalism.
Our community’s adoration of our previous projects and their endorsement of our merchandise fills us with humility and gratification. It also fuels our pride in accomplishing each project in less than four months!
Today, we are proud to unveil our latest creation – the Class60.
Origin of Retro custom keyboard-MM Class60
During the brainstorming phase for our latest undertaking, our designer serendipitously stumbled upon an ancient manuscript regarding the Symbolics Computer, and therein, the inspiration for the Class60 was conceived.
We’ve meticulously crafted this keyboard to invoke a vintage aesthetic while integrating contemporary functionality. From the ergonomic keycaps to the durable metal frame, the Class60 exudes a sense of nostalgia while preserving the functionalities of a modern-day keyboard.
We take immense pride in our artistry and attention to detail, and we believe the MM-Class60 Retro Custom Mechanical Keyboard will evoke a sense of sentimentality and function in our customers.

In Short – The Class60 is a Leaf-spring/Top dual mounting 60% Keyboard, we kept the beloved Buzzer & Solenoid feature from the previous board the Class80 and on top also added the support for QMK&VIAL compatible capacitive PCB (we use the “T” word) and an optional wrist rest to enlarge the chin of the keyboard.
