Keyboard related spares. (Please note I don't sell Spectrum Plus membranes because they are so hit-and-miss - you can read more about them here. I do sell membranes for rubber key Spectrums as they are problem-free)

Note: The lettering on the Spectrum Plus keys does yellow over time. To help match your keyboard, I have separated the spare keys I have for sale into various colour grades (see this diagram for a guide). These particular keys I'd rate as as colour grade 1 in my comparison chart (as white as it gets for 2nd hand keys really)
