The fact that there isn't 2 separate base kits for white and black is disappointing. Not paying $95 for just a white mods set when the base kit is $120. Rama is pretty sick though so that's probably the only thing I will get.

White mods are $105 on NK lmao. At that price point might as well just add $15 and make a complete white base kit.

Would you have paid $95 for the mods if the base kit was $140?

Cables from Keebstuff are now live  :-*

https://www.keebstuff.com/en/c/cables/gmk-colorchrome-presale

Quote
The RGB Panda is available as a coiled cable with the black anodized Weipu SA12 or as non-coiled version with the slimmer Weipu SA10.

Each set or device end comes with an additional shrink accent pack, that you can apply yourself, for even more flexibility with future builds.

If you want us to apply a color of your choice, just leave a note in your order.







The set should also be live at most vendors by now :)

Would you have paid $95 for the mods if the base kit was $140?

No, would have paid $80 max regardless of base kit price

Doesnít matter NK either has wrong prices or op has it wrong, itís $105.

Hey Minam, I do not mean to ignore your question, I were just hoping to talk to NK before I replied to you, this should be a mistake - and the correct price are 95USD, very sorry to hear you do not like the pricing on the kits, best of luck finding a set better priced for your needs though! <3

EDIT: The price has now been fixed on NovelKeys website and those who already bought it has been refunded the difference

Looks great, good luck!

I am thinking about getting a split Alice-style keyboard like the Nasu https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=107274.0. I am new to alternative keyboard formats. Would I be fine with the base set? Or would I need the 40% kit as well?

A lot of sets don't have the rama O's included, such as deep navy, aurora polaris, or 80082. Just a preference thing I suppose.

Hi everyone, today is the last day and chance to buy this set! :)

And, with regards to the Rama's, it was just a choice I made many months ago when the set were in early IC - I have gone back and forth with the decission since the set hit IC and up untill GB, but I ultimately decided to keep the C for the Colorchrome logo  :thumb:
