Hi there thanks for clicking! Please fill out the interest check form HERE!

DSA Historic is a 40s first doubleshot DSA (uniform) ABS set from SP inspired by the Vegas Golden Knights primary jersey, using text mods and solo numerical/mod legends as seen on DSA Quartz.

This set will be using stock Signature Plastics colors:
Slate Grey-Blue (GSM) alphas
Black (NN) modifiers
Golden (YCB) legends
Red (RA) accents



More


Allow me to elaborate on the inspiration to this set. Being born and raised in Las Vegas, there was very little to identify ourselves with when I was a kid. We were constantly poked at for not having culture, only as a city that was meant to entertain everybody else. This silly little misfit of a team brought so much to a city full of misfit locals and was able to finally give us all in this town something of OUR OWN to cheer for and identify ourselves with. Nobody thought hockey would work in the desert, everybody doubted it just as they had doubted Las Vegas locals throughout my whole life. Boy did we show them. They have been nothing but wonderful regarding community events, and were a gigantic factor during the healing process for this city after the shooting in 2017. This team made the biggest impact I have ever seen in my local community, and I would love nothing more than to simply share my love for these colors with you all.








This set was kitted for cost effectiveness for small board users, prioritizing physical compatibility for many popular small boards from Preonic to Minivan to Prime e. There will also be a child kit that includes keys that will help support larger modded smaller boards, as well as physical compatibility for 60-65% keyboards. The goal is to support the keyboards I found myself using daily made by the wonderful people of the 40% community.

DOH! Saw the 40's kit description and got lost in the disappointment. Super chuffed that it has 65% kitting!
Will there be scope for international UK support?

Potentially, at least just a physical ISO key if there's enough interest in it, so please say so in the IC form. Physical compatibility is priority to keep the kits at a decent price!

Thanks everyone for the super kind words! :D

Already got enough feedback on the form to start making some changes and additions to the kits, especially the 60s kit.
One of them being that deep dish blew nipple homing out of the water (with a 7:3), so we'll be going with that as that's a safe decision to make right now that won't change any pricing. The OP should be updated with that change.
Will update you guys on the additions to the 60s kit once quotes get back to me!

But did your team get to cherry pick players from all the other teams in order to fill their roster?

Let's see if the Seattle Kraken does well after a similar draft setup.

Update time!!

Thank you all for a fantastic weekend of feedback, I seriously appreciate all of you! I'm super optimistic about this set so far, and wanna make sure to keep riding it by being transparent with changes and taking in feedback. Please let me know if you have any questions, requests, etc by filling out the IC form!



The base kit has already been edited to reflect changes made to the homing keys, and now the 1u "SUPER" key has been replace with an additional 1u "SHIFT" key. I felt there was enough requests for this in the IC form, and there are already enough FN-like 1u keys to fill most layouts. The main post has been updated with this change as that should not affect pricing.



Going to be getting quotes for this updated 60's kit:


All that has changed is the addition of a 6u bar (I should have done this initially for HHKB peeps in general, that's my bad), an ISO key (I felt there was enough interest for UK ISO that there should be at least physical compatibility for them) and an addition of a tilde key (the tilde/pipe question on the ic form was 50/50, which leads me to believe that both is the better option).
You may remember the updated 60's kit I included in the IC form with the calc keys, but I felt there was little (literally 0) mentions of including calc keys in the ic form, so those were scratched.



Here are some reasonings to requests I saw on the IC form:



Unfortunately SP only offers 6u, 6.25u, 7u, and I believe 8u convex bars for DSA. If this were possible, it would be happening.





I wanted to make sure some other layouts were getting the proper bars they needed, there's been a recent surge in boards using 1.75u (I'm using one right now) and I didn't want to bloat the kit with tons of bars. I feel Corne layouts and the like work very well with 1u bars anyways, as they physically fit.





This one is rough. I feel if I included one alternate homing set, I would have to include them all, which would be an additional 6+ keys. I think that is a bit too many to be adding to the base kit, doesn't belong in the 60s kit, and any alternate kits aside from those two would be initially very pricy. I'm sorry, but this likely isn't happening. I hope the inclusion of non-homing keys will suffice.





There are no plans to include novelties/extra fancy keys other than the red accents. Wanted to keep this really simple and grounded with as little kits and extra keys as possible.


no dn key waffle u wanker


Thank you all again! I'll make sure to post another update when the quotes for the 60's kit comes back, shouldn't see too drastic as a price hike.
And if you haven't filled out the IC form, please do so here!!

Understandable small keyboards aren't for everyone, that's why I made sure there's a kit that supports bigger boards! I jump from 60's to small stuff all the time, variety is the spice of life in this hobby.

Hey everyone, just a little mini update regarding the group buy date for the set! It'll be running from June 1st - July 2nd!!!
Still waiting on those new 60's kit quotes, but don't anticipate more than $40. Hopefully SP gets back to us by the end of the week!
Thanks again for all the support.  :-*
