My first Wind product

This is my first Wind product and my first keyboard above $300. I didn’t hear anything from Wind after purchasing, but they were updating us in their discord. To my surprise, it arrived earlier than I had expected. On their page, it said between 3-6 months. It arrived within 3 months. It came before the build guide was released. Luckily, the keyboard was really easy to build, so I didn’t have much trouble. After assembly, I had some trouble with my “Win” key, but after getting some help from the discord, it was quickly resolved (user error). Overall, I’m very satisfied with the keyboard. It sounds great, looks great and feels premium. It plugs and play into VIAL, so there isn’t any fiddliness with sideloading. The stabilizers are easily tuned and I haven’t had any ticking or rattliness. The packaging was amazing too! If Wind Studio comes up with another unique layout, I could easily see myself purchasing from them again.
