Pricing at Cannon Keys has been announced, at $575 per standard kit.

Standard kitting will include Cloudline (aluminum case, brass weight, internal SS frame), full FR4 plate, PCB + DB, hardware, custom feet, o-ring, and a carrying case + microfiber. Pricing for other regions and extras will be released as they come in.

Here's an album of images containing the latest blue sample in different lighting conditions. The planned blue is the one with the Q on it, from GMK Modern Dolch:

I don't have the red board in-hand, and photos won't be as telling as a video - I think best way to get an idea for it is to see it when it's built on-stream (will be announced coming soon). That way the way the anodization plays with light can be demonstrated as well.

This is a group buy, not an in stock item. There's a limited number of units and much more demand than supply. The October 9th date is when the group buy goes live and a group buy is already kinda a preorder. There's not going to be a preorder for a preorder

I hope you can rethink about ISO plates: it would be a real shame especially here in Europe not to have ISO plates during the GB.
Maybe you can think of releasing at least one type of plate in ISO layout (FR4 or aluminum)  :cool:

Thanks all for the kind words.

The build stream went so much better than I was hoping - a total relief, and IMO the board looked much better than expected on stream! Thank you Lulzthax for the great build. Here's the VOD if anyone missed it... I definitely recommend checking it out:

Howdy all,

A big thanks to Minterly, who will be building a Cloudline on stream today around 6pm PDT!

https://www.twitch.tv/minterly

The prototype unit is red, and will be built with a full polycarbonate plate with Seal switches (lightly lubed with 205g0, I did not have unfortunately).

Re: [IC] Cloudline - 88% F13 TKL | New Pricing, New Default Plate
« Reply #379 on: Wed, 29 September 2021, 23:50:07 »
Update: September 29th, 2021

Big announcement regarding standard kit and pricing.

The default plate, which was FR4, is now being replaced with a full aluminum plate. As a result, the price of the standard kit is slightly increased from $575 to $585. Respective vendor prices will be finalized before sale date.

This change was mulled over along with some previous feedback - after now having tested both plates (and finding that the sound profile was closer to my preference), it was decided that a keyboard at this price point could use a slightly more premium default plate. For those interested in the alu plate, this will save them a good amount on the kit overall. For those interested in having both an alu & fr4 plate, it will also cost less overall.

It says region locked for both proto and myk on the discord, but I don’t know if uk is its own region. If proto offers iso I hope myk will also.

The IC page (the very one you just posted on) links to https://docs.cannonkeys.com/raffle-queue which gives a thorough explanation of how it works.

The CK newsletters linked to this IC page (9/17, 9/24), said

Quote
Cloudline sale details

There will be 20 brass top special editions sold through our custom checkout on 10/9 at 10AM ET. These special editions will not be region locked and will cost $800.

At 11AM ET on the same day, 260 standard edition units will be sold for $585 on our custom checkout. These standard editions will be region locked.

on 10/1, and on 10/8 it links to the reference product page, which said

Quote
THIS IS A REFERENCE PAGE FOR THE UPCOMING CLOUDLINE TKL KEYBOARD GROUP BUY.

BRASS TOP SPECIAL EDITION WILL BE SOLD ON 10/9 AT 10AM ET AND WILL NOT BE REGION LOCKED. ALUMINUM TOP STANDARD EDITION WILL BE SOLD ON 10/9 AT 11AM ET AND WILL BE REGION LOCKED. BOTH SALES WILL USE OUR CUSTOM CHECKOUT.

which also links to https://docs.cannonkeys.com/raffle-queue.

So I'd argue it is very far from "no explanation".

Don't feel bad, most people didn't get the Brass edition. There were only 20 for all regions. I missed the Hype link during Sat75 R2 GB because I didn't read the instruction. It's also worth point out (since you didn't read) that the alum version was regionally locked. Non NA orders would be cancelled, or would not have gone through.
