Hooty will feature low contrast and saturation doubleshot greys throughout the set and novelties, with soft, bright pink UV throughout the base and novelties. Same pink will be used as the doubleshot accent legend, and the keycaps in the accent kit. Grey keycaps and legend in the accent kit is GMK 2B. Pink and light grey are custom.

Kits

Base ($134.99 USD) and Novelties ($49.99 USD)

(Two blank relegendables, and two with printed + side-print novelties - The wonderful man that he is, Jae @Prototypist will be providing laser cut papers for the relegendables)

i'm thinking since this is running next month this isn't really an IC, but if you are open to kiting suggestions, consider 3 key moved into base. i don't think many 40s users are going to buy an expansion module for support on their boards. additionally, i don't think there is a lot of value in the two arrow key sets in the base. perhaps you could drop these keys and include 3 key and f13 without changing your costs greatly. this might cut down on a few expansion modules sales, BUT it may increase a few base kit sales.

alternatively, you could drop a set of arrow keys and include alice in base.

Lovely set!

I second this, would you consider moving 3 keys to base kit?
Also I think the enter key in Hootspansion should be 1.5u, isn't it?

Looks great! Love the grey and pink combo. Also, I like how you didn't add the ㅃ ㅉ ㄸ ㄲ ㅆ ㅒ ㅖ sub legends for the hangul. It looks cleaner! Honestly we don't even need them there anyways. It's implied lol

Echoing the comment on the 1.5 enter in hootspansion kit. If the goal is to cover minivan, it should be 1.5u instead of 1.75u. If the goal was to support 12u/13u only, then the 1.75 backspace can be removed. As much as I would push for 3-key support normally, I'd say the majority of 40s use split bars and those users are going to end up buying extension anyway as a result. May be cheaper in the end to have 3-key in base (for 40s users) but I won't pretend to know the thresholds and cutoffs when using UV + doubleshot alphas.

Additionally, this may be personal but I strongly prefer macro columns to be 1-5 and 6-10 so you can use them on boards with single macro columns (TMO, Tsukuyomi, etc.)

Seconding this, also 40s support is a bit broken right now, without a 1.5u enter the 1.75u backspace is useless.

bub pretty much covered everything I wanted to say. Forcing XT macro with spacebars and 40's is probably gonna upset a lot more people than it pleases.
I'm kinda surprised there's no accent spacebars. That's it. Not that I want them, but I would buy them if you forced all the spacebars together into one kit.

What’s the custom light grey color so I can look at it on a good monitor?

I want the macro keys, does a 40s user want the other ones? I’ve got 2b bars already.

I told myself no more GMK sets unless it's very very special since I can't be bothered with waiting until 2023.
But this set might be that one.

However I don't understand some of the kitting.

Why have the 2nd B in basekit but no Alice bars?

The only way to get the bars is in a Hootspansion kit which most likely will be pretty expensive. I also feel that Kit is trying to cover a bit of everything but most people will only want a few  keys from it.
I don't see an Alice user using anything else than the 2 spacebars. And the person that just wants the Macro keys will also end up with tons of wasted keys.

I understand that this is often the case to have many unused keys, but if you have the 2nd B in basekit, please consider adding Alice support in the basekit (maybe the 2nd set of all grey arrows aren't necessary).
I'm sure this set will do very well, so a bigger base kit should be possible and still target a fair price.


ps: any chance for a Rama/Thok or other Metal Artisan?
