It depends of the number requested.  :)
These guys make batches of ZX Spectrum membranes for the Czech ZX maniacs, so why not order a boxful of Enterprise ones from them?  ;-)

I don't know, but one ZX guy told me he thought it was be at least 50 pcs. Just ask them: ttklavesnice.cz.
Warning: this is only a guess - if you order, say, 50 membranes, the price could start, if you're lucky, at 4000 HUF per piece.

I have found an alternative manufacturer for Keyboard membranes who seem to offer fairly good value - I am willing to speak to them about getting new keyboard membranes made for the Enterprise 128 (if someone can send me an existing membrane (working or not!) - they will need to know how long the tails need to be.

Based on other quotes, taking into account tooling costs and the investment required, we would probably be able to offer replacement membranes at around £25 each (based on getting an initial batch of 50 made).

Is there sufficient interest in getting these made?  If so, email us, or leave a message on our guestbook at:

This is good for you? I can measure the original size of the connecting part from working one.

What about the Enterprise 64 - do they use the same keyboard membrane?

 :ds_icon_cheesygrin:
As an early Christmas present, new Keyboard Membranes for the Enterprise 64 and 128 (same membrane!) are now on order with the factory and should be ready for shipping by 22nd December.

Cost if you pre-order is £22 per membrane + shipping (£2.50 within the UK, £2.80 to Europe).

Obviously this has been another major investment by us for the retro computer community, so we would appreciate it if people wish to place a pre-order.

Stocks are limited (we have only ordered 50 membranes).

Please pre-order via SellMyRetro - the trading website for retro computers :)
