Collection: KQ2

9 products

The Kumquat is one of my favourite machines EVER!

It is something that I had dreamt about for years... Creating a single coil that could rival the performance of a standard, dual coil machine but lighter weight with increased maneuverability and improved balance.  After many trials and countless designs The Kumquat was born and it exceeded all of my expectations. It was a joy to use; light in the hand with exceptional balance and a smooth constant power through its entire range. It blew my mind. 

After its release in 2018 it became the most popular machine I've ever made. It was such a joy to build and to share but after 2 years I felt it was time for a change. 

The KQ2 is that change...

To form the KQ2 I took the original Kumquat design and trimmed it up, narrowed it, opened it up and added some key performance mods. The result is a lighter weight, more refined Kumquat with increased power, improved serviceability and more options for different setups and components. 

Albeit new and different, the KQ2 is no gimmick. It is made to TATTOO and I mean, REALLY tattoo. These little machine pack a real punch. Each specific setup it optimised to make that area of your work as easy as it possibly can be, from super quick fine lines with the Zippy Liner to pronounced, peppery whips and solid colour with the Shader, the KQ2 has you covered. 

Check it out, you won't want to put it down.
