[IC] GMK Brown on Beige
« on: Fri, 23 June 2023, 02:19:56 »
GMK Brown on Beige

The inspiration for this set was the OG Cherry dyesub keycaps from the NCR G81-3077SAU, that had faded to a nice brown colour.

IC Form     Discord

Base Kit



Hangul Kit



Colour Codes

Alphas - GMK L9
Mods - GMK CB
Legends - RAL8017

I sat at Geonworks with a GMK colour ring and his NCR G81-3077SAU comparing the two and we both came to the conclusion that CB and L9 more closely matches the NCR.

I originally planned to run 3K alphas since I really like the colour contrast but decided to go with the more original one instead.

Let me know in the IC form if you would like to see 3K alphas instead. Photo will be in the form.

135$ seems high for what the basekit is. Looks more like sub 125$ but otherwise looking good

Great looking set. Can't fault with more beige.

Also, echoing what the poster above me have said, please consider changing/adding the legends to fit with the OG NCR board.  ;D

Brown accents? Brown numrow? I'm in without it but I think there might be a few of us who would roll w a brown alert look on a beige board.

I love R0 and I'd buy a kit but I'm one of a very small subset of people.

Everyone who thinks the pricing is high should remember what MOQ 250 pricing used to look like. Base kits were more than this.

Hi lovely set^^

The renders in the kitting show double Hangul sublegends but the keyboard renders show single sublegends. Which would it be?

Very cool. Love the inspiration behind the project. As other people have said I do agree that 3K might be the best option to go here when it comes to the alphas, and maybe to fit with the theme more, replicate the keycaps on that NCR board as someone else said, if it is possible. I do think the price is a bit much for a beige set, so if it can be done I would love to see the price lowered down a bit or make it worth the price (such as maybe replicating the NCR Board keycaps, but that would probably make it more expensive if the price is already at 135).

this looks really great. iím in as long as you keep R5 bottom row and double consonants for the hangul kit. gl!

+1 to matching legends to OG NCR, but itís not a deal maker/breaker for me personally. 3K> too.

Thanks for this, I'll try my best to match all the legends and side prints to be inline with the NCR.

Maybe controversial take, but if it helps to get the price down skip the windowed keys. GMK's pad printing has been really bad lately, and I'm someone who loves windowed caps.

Very cool idea otherwise, I also prefer K3.

There seems to be a few different groups of people interested in this set for different reasons, I fall amongst the brown lovers and would LOVE to see brown accents or brown alert style number row. Like some said before me, brown keyboards are gaining in popularity and this set would be a match made in heaven for them.

Considering this is imitating NCR Dye Subs, why not run with a PBT manufacturer unless it's for R0/R5 and that's a requirement if so, hit up CRP/Hammer?

Also, idk if I'm in the minority or maybe i didnt let my NCR sit in the sun long enough but did 3077 legends turn brown when fading?

It's been a while since I've checked back on this post but the set is going to run guaranteed. I'm hoping for mid to late Q1 2024.
I've read through all the feedback and comments and will try to accommodate for everyone.
I'll check back in by November or December with a revised kitting that will hopefully satisfy the majority.
Thank you all for your patience.
