The technical data of a switch can be hard to understand. Our goal here is to demystify how these specs affect feel and sound. We hope this helps you discover whether or not a switch might be a good fit.

Bottom-out: 65g

Bottoming out, or pressing all the way down, on this Gazzew LT switch requires 65g of force. With a heavier bottom-out than 73% of switches in our selection, the Gazzew LT is considered medium-heavy.

A switch's bottom-out force is dependent solely on its spring weight.

Factory Lubed

The Gazzew LT is factory lubed. This is done to reduce friction and improve the feel of the switch. Other effects include reduced noise and if a tactile switch, slightly decreased tactility. Choosing a factory lubed switch saves you time and energy from having to lube the switch yourself. Factories have drastically improved the lubing process over the years, meaning more and more factory-lubed switches are great to use out-of-the-box.

Top and Bottom Housing: Proprietary Gazzew blend

Proprietary Gazzew blend is the Gazzew LT's top and bottom housing material. This proprietary plastic blend, sometimes referred to as "boba plastic," delivers a rich and deep sound profile due to its softness.

Mount type: PCB (5-pin)

The Gazzew LT is a PCB (5-pin) mount switch. PCB-mount, or 5-pin, switches feature 2 extra alignment pins when compared to their 3-pin counterparts. This ensures alignment (i.e. switch won't rotate and will stay in place) if your keyboard does not feature a plate or if you choose not to use one. If your keyboard's PCB does not have holes for these alignment pins, you will need to trim them off before installing them.

Stem construction: Standard

The cross-shaped stem construction is the most standard as well as the most classic, as it is derived from the original Cherry switches.

Descriptors

#bassy

Bassy switches offer a deeper and richer sound profile during key presses. The sound can be characterized by a lower frequency range, resembling the depth and richness associated with bass tones.

#thocky

A thocky keyboard switch typically produces a deep, rich, and satisfying sound when pressed. Think of deep "thud" or a soft "knock" when the key is pressed and released.

#low-pitched

Low-pitched switches typically feature a more bass-heavy and mellow tone compared to higher-pitched switches.
