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

The Drop CTRL High-Profile is just like the original CTRL, but now it comes with a tall CNC-aluminum case that covers the switches. Machined at a 6-degree angle, the case is ergonomically crafted for a natural feel—and it’s quite a bit heavier than before. Thanks to the Kaihua switch sockets, the keyboard allows you to swap 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. With dual USB-C connectors, the CTRL High-Profile is outfitted with the latest connections. What’s more, it has customizable RGB backlighting and underlighting, so you can set it to a single color or light it up with a rainbow wave.
