Criminally un-noticed when on sale in group buy, the Gemini TKL was conceived as a custom housing for the Novatouch TKL keyboard. In a wonderful coincidence, the attributes needed to create a Novatouch case also make for a stellar Alps case. Specifically, the Gemini is an unusually large polycarbonate gasket mount with a large amount of extra internal volume. This leads to a deep and resonant sound that rivals even that of vintage plastic Alps cases.
Only 25-30 of the polycarbonate Geminis were ever produced, but with their limited hype, they are reasonably obtainable. A black delrin plate was used in this build to compliment the smoked polycarbonate and to further deepen the sound of the switches.
