The 4TW is a heavy duty cast-acrylic case that can be ordered preassembled or in DIY format. 4TW stands for “for the dub” or for the worthy, for the wise, and for the warriors.

The available layouts include:

  • All buttons
  • Shiokenstar
  • WASD
  • Noir
  • Sega 2P
  • Vewlix extended
  • Hitstick
  • Mixup
  • WASD + up
  • Antagonist


The 4TW can fit Sanwa parts that are known for their responsivity and durability. The case is weighty, so it should not slide around during play. Its edges should not irritate your wrists. Furthermore, the panel should not flex when your palms rest on it during play. Speaking of which, the size is comfortable for both desk and lap play. Furthermore, there are 0.16″ EVA foam cushions at the bottom.


Assembling the 4TW should be easy for both veterans and newcomers. If you order the case alone, here are some important details:

  • 24 & 30 mm snap-in or screw-in buttons are compatible.
  • Japanese levers with flat mounting plates are compatible.
  • Korean levers with short collars are compatible.
  • 24 mm Neutrik USB A-to-B ports are compatible.
  • Mounting holes for Brook PCBs and similar innovations are included.

Those who prefer a 35.1 mm hole on the top cover for a full-collar Korean lever can tell that to jonyfraze.


There are optional artwork covers, and you can submit artwork requests to the designer, jonyfraze. We at The Arcade Stick also offer custom artwork, and our Carlos Martinez can give your entire 4TW a complete makeover like so:

The matte-black case is made of quarter-inch cast acrylic. There is also eighth-inch matte-black acrylic or you can simply opt for clear-acrylic artwork covers of the same thickness. The Sanwa joystick and buttons are black unless you state otherwise.
