Looking for a keyboard (qwerty not midi controller) that doesn't vibrate

Hi guys & gals of GS,

As the title suggests I'm looking for a qwerty keyboard, that isn't going to vibrate inordinately. I noticed recently that my current keyboard makes a nasty hum from any remotely low freqs, I've gone to great lengths to reduce vibration in my studio room so am going to buy a new keyboard. Funnily enough, despite poring over a number of keyboards' specs, no mention is made of whether low end vibrates them

Can anyone recommend one that they use which is a decent enough keyb to use, and doesn't rattle / vibrate? Will potentially save me spanking cash on keyboards that aren't fit for my purpose, as I've got no way of knowing myself short of ordering them and seeing how they go.

Cheers!

DeCK Legend with cherry black switches here -- they have the strongest springs available in them. Also, the O-ring kits help somewhat. I can't say for sure that they don't vibrate, but I can say that other stuff vibrates way sooner...

I'll have a look at that one, many thanks for the tip.

Funnily enough when I rest my hands over the keys the issue disappears so this sounds like a great way to be able to buy the keyboard I want and then solve the problem, nice one!

I use Ducky Shine 4 Cherry MX Green. Its heavy, premium built, with a metal backplate, doesn't vibarate or flex at all. Quite pricey however (£160)

MX Black is not the strongest spring its 60cn. Greys and Greens are heavier with 80cn but that wont really affect the vibration, its the black plate that you have to worry about, make sure its metal
