Vintage keycaps

Any budget retro-beige coloured keycaps with plain grey accents which look like DCS sleepers or NCR dyesubs?

hello, you could buy some pbt corn on kinetic labs, and use the yellow-ish mods instead of the green ones.

You could just get, like, any 9009 set. Pick whatever profile you like, because KBDfans has all of them for no goddamn reason.

This is what I not like, I was meaning something like OG cherry dyesubs or Hammerworks CRP.

You already named them. Don't bother with the rest. Original Cherry dyesubs are the greatest, and CRP is an incredible reproduction attempt; they're only lacking in texture compared to the originals.

Do you want to pay +$1000 for the perfect texture? If yes, find some original dyesubs. If not, buy CRP. Don't bother looking anywhere else for dyesubs - I cannot stress how good the value is with CRP, you won't regret it.

Equally, original Cherry doubleshots are the best doubleshots you'll find. GMK KA1953 is a good substitute if you can't find a set, but GMK's quality control and texture isn't quite as nice as earlier Cherry doubleshots.
