Hey Sherryton,

Is the pricing for these still $80? I was looking at the website, and it says 90 :)

Thanks!

Hello Kubiedo,

The pricing is not at $80 anymore :(

Are these still available for purchase on the website?

If not, I am anxiously awaiting for the next round! Will the next round be in 3-4 months after this one ships?

Thanks for the info! Unfortunately I just returned to university so I'm not sure when I'll have the money and time to purchase a set, so I might have to wait for the next round. Which leads to my next question: do you have an approximate time when the next round will begin? I'm interested in getting the JP set (love those legends).

In for some JP purple/cyan goodness!  :)

I passed on this while on GB stage, but the samples finally sealed the deal for me. I thought the colors would come out faded. The alphas look nice and vibrant in the end though.

Can we get a few sample shots of colored modifier caps while we wait?

How are the colors compared to OG cherry dyesubs? IDK if I can convince myself to drop 450+ for a set of OGs, but if these are close...

Any chance you'll be in the Whittier Area? I can show you an example! It's better to see them in person to see for yourself :)

I'll be getting the purp + cyan JP and blue + red KR and am in SF. But I don't think these will be delivered in time for the next meetup. But we could see about finding a time/place at some point as I'm occasionally in sac for dept of Ed stuff.

I think it's pretty spot on, but I do not have an ORIGINAL set. I only have the BSP sets.

Hey Sherry, will the next round of Modern Beige have the extra keys to support a full 1800 layout? I got in this round for Classic Blue, and am thinking of picking up another set at some point, 1800 support is the main sticking point for me really.

1800 hype. I would've bought this keyset but for this compatibility. In the minority so I understand but I really appreciated the adding on of the 1800 kit to the Chronicler GB. I'm excited to get this set with it as well as the posted pics looked far better than I was anticipating.

I don't mind the wait as soon as I will get them. Even though I really look forward to them and really want'em soon! :D But I have to ask. Has any GB ever delivered on the first said time? Seems like Every GB gets delayed, every single one :)

Ideus, it seems you can still place an order for a whole set on Originative, I reckon Sherryton ordered extras for retail to push MOQ, they probably will ship out in the same wave as the GB orders. Might be worth emailing Oco and ask them directly.

Thank you very much for tip, I will contact him, but I am in a very tight budget for the rest of the year, so maybe I cannot afford a full set, but who knows.

Sorry for the poo quality of the following picture, it's dark in my room. This is OG Cherry alphas (same colour as GMK Classic Retro) next to the MOD dyesub PBT caps on the TADA68 which I suppose is the same as the dye-sub provider for Modern Beige.

Currently we are still waiting for the Oco PBT / Modern beige sets from China. The factory had some minor delays, but are almost finished. The workers are currently enjoying a national Holiday "National Day" where they will be off between the 1st of October and the 7th. We expect this set  to be finished and shipped shortly after their Holiday. We apologize for the delay, and thank you for your patience.

We will not have an updated date for fulfillment until after the Chinese Holiday.

We've heard from our dyesubber for Oco-PBT that they will be finishing up the last of the sets this week and will be shipping the sets out to us next week. Once the sets arrive at Originative Co., we will be shipping sets out immediately.

Thank you everyone for your tremendous support on all of the projects that we have been working on.

Modern Beige should ship this week. They are in the process of being packaged.

I'm going to try to ship them out as soon as possible, but I'm getting boxes made that might delay this. I have to figure out if I can get the boxes done in time.

I'll show progress of both the sets and boxes as soon as I can.
