• Tenkeyless (TKL)
  • Gateron Yellows (50g)
  • Stock keycaps (ABS)


The KUL ES-87 is a super-solid TKL keyboard.  This particular example has a smoke black case and originally had Cherry MX Blue switches.  The r/MK user from whom I purchased this board, /u/honeynugget, desoldered all the MX Blue switches and replaced them with the Gateron Yellow switches it has currently.

Gateron Yellow are one of my favorite linear switches.  They hit a sweet spot on the force scale for me, and their smoothness is rather pleasant.

On a related note, the customer service at Keyed Up Labs (KUL) is outstanding.  One of the rear riser legs on keyboard broke.  When I contacted them they were quick to send me a replacement leg free of charge, and sent a follow-up email to confirm receipt and satisfaction.  Kudos to KUL!
