The Drop CTRL Barebones is a compact 87-key tenkeyless barebones mechanical keyboard with per key RGB LED backlighting and hot-swap switch sockets.

To put it simply, the CTRL mechanical keyboard has it all. Constructed with a solid aluminum frame with a built-in switch plate, it’s stable and fortified. And thanks to the Kaihua switch sockets, it allows you to change switches whenever you want with no soldering required. It’s also fully programmable via QMK, meaning you can assign macros or custom keybinds to every key if you like. With dual USB-C connectors, the CTRL is outfitted with the fastest available connections. Aesthetically, the CTRL impresses, too. Featuring customizable RGB backlighting and underlighting, it puts on a show in myriad colors; or you can set it to a single color for a more subtle look.
