I apologise. I think I must have been looking at the Modern Dolch 2 Timeline, rather than the Modern Dolch Light  timeline.

You are all correct. The timeline for this group buy states June 2021 - so only pushed back by one month since the last update.

Looks like this has been pushed back to may (for US buyers at least). Hopefully us in the EU can get it a little sooner.

I am very interested when it will be shipped this month in eu. Can someone confirm we will get it this month?

Sad I didn't get in on this on the GB

Definitely a must-cop for me

Are these still shipping in May, or will it be delayed to June?

Here with a shipping update we just received from GMK this morning.

They said that the set has not started production, even though we were told it had in the last update. The production start was pushed back due to material delays. Updated shipping date from Germany is Calendar Week 24 or 25 (June 6-19) which means most likely a July shipping date to customers, if customs clearance doesn't present any delays.

For those that get their news here, this has been explained to have been a typo, so production HAS started and is indeed almost complete. Please see the latest update from Omnitype:

GMK produces in Germany, so EU vendors tend to be the first to ship out their sets as they receive them within a couple days versus overseas vendors having longer travel time plus customs clearance processes.

My spacebar was a tiny bit wobbly, but I also realized that my ****ty stabs had popped the wire again, so after I fixed that, it wasn't so bad. The white matches my Polaris e-white absolutely perfectly, and the deskmat is amazing. Love it, instantly one of my favorite sets so far :)

It feels very classic set. I also ordered muted, but its nice that both of them has different rows and alphas. And since r5 is more of a novelty thing than pure standart this can be nice daily driver while muted to embrace some vintage looking keyboard. I wonder how much muted and this mods are similar or they aren't

(Attachment Link)

It turned out realy close to renders with mods being a little bit darker. Pink accent is a bit too saturated, agree, but teal looks perfect though

Does anyeone have 1 to 1 comparnce to muted, really want to see how they differ besides obvious alphas color

The Modern Dolch 2 thread would be a better place to ask about Modern Dolch 2.

But Omnitype sold both sets, and they update their timelines fairly often.
  Modern Dolch Light: "Keycaps Arrived to our warehouse (as of 7.23.2021)"
  Modern Dolch 2: "Estimated to ship from manufacturer in mid-Oct and to customers in Nov 2021 (as of 6.25.2021)"

Thanks for this answer man. Fairly sure I've checked Omnitype's website every now and then, but never actually found that page. Right! Looks like I'll have to wait a little longer!

hm, all the pictures i'm seeing of modo light's "mint/very muted cyan" accent look extremely not minty/muted cyan and lean much more towards aqua/tiffany blue/saturated cyan. i dont hate it by any means but it defintely seems different from the renders.

I agree that the renders and the final product look a bit different for pretty much every color. However, they look very accurate to the photo of the color samples provided on the main page.

How is everyone's spacebars? I've been buying GMK sets for over 5 years at this point, and these are the worst that I've seen. If I hold down one side of my 7u bar, the gap is aprox 2mm from the table surface on the other side. The 6.25 is not far behind. QA on GMK sets have been declining over this past year or so, but this one takes the cake.

My 7u is like 95% perfect, mounted on my keyboard it shows a veeery slight unevenness but it's not distracting or even noticeable unless you're looking for it. Haven't really checked the 6.25u, since I don't have a keyboard for it right now.

seconded, the renders dont even remotely match the finished product

not sure if its a problem with the renders being inaccurate (can't say since no RAL codes were provided IIRC) or the whole data-driven colormatching process itself was flawed

either way im struggling to see how these accents got approved

I contacted omni type and they're just like
You can return them.

like wtf? Duties, marketprice, shipping fees back and 3% restock fee, and they can just sell as extras... ok budyy.

I don't think we should let this fly?

When did this become a thing? I thought GMK was so good, I heard in the past they would send out re-dos of certain keys that were really off.

The original colors look very luxury, nice. Which is why I pulled the trigger. Now it looks like some cheap ass Chinese set.

I even got two sets cuz I thought this was gonna be one I was going to use for the rest of my life cuz I fell in love with it.

I've bought 3 really expensive group buys in colors specifically to match their renders which used these original colors. (onyx in silver, portal in silver, 7v in navy). Like this is ****ed.

Omnitype was behind the 80082 one as well weren't they.

Edit: looking it into it further people's pictures of the keyset with the deskmat, it doesn't even match the deskmat green lol with the 3 circles.
It doesn't match the rama cap either.

also the HK gaming copy of this actually looks closer to the original (edit: on the mods). my god.

8008, dracula, now this. Omnitype... this is just outrageous

so pissed

You bought 2 silver boards and a navy for the sets to go on...How on earth did you expect the PASTEL colors to match navy exactly? Since when does pastel green match navy? And how could they not match silver? Everything matches silver. The only Rama's that have ever matched the keysets they're supposed to go with have been black and white. Nothing else comes close.

Sell your sets and move on. Plenty of people are satisfied with their sets. People on Mechmarket will be satisfied, too. Make a profit on yours and get something you actually like.

Upon closer inspection, the GMK version is a bit closer, but I would prefer the more subdued over the oversaturated. I personally got it as a better 9009 with a pastel look.
Maybe I can buy an HK gaming set and mix the mods

I literally bought the onyx for this very render: https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0238/7342/1376/products/MDL_Top_1024x1024@2x.jpg?v=1613771927

I could have gotten white or green, which I debated over a long time, but ultimately I got it for the modol match. I could have matched my botanical or my minimal instead. Maybe you're not so aesthetically driven or care, but that's a big part of this hobby for people.

Check out the original renders for modol, they look good with silver boards, and navy. Don't be stupid, almost every sick silver board has used this as a render, the original pastel.

Sure silver looks good with a bunch of colors, but I don't like those combos.
I had to float all this money for this long not only for the sets but for these GB's.

---------------------------------------
Topic of just accepting this:

I'm going to move on from this obviously, and I'll find solutions, but this doesn't make this okay.

If you're going to just gloss over it, well have fun with future GB's because you're helping set a precedent that it's ok.
It's really not okay, and stop letting it be if you don't want to have ****ed color matching yourself or for others in the future, that's what this is about you nincumpoops.

Here ya go.

Man, you had to zoom in on that hair in my photo, didn't you?  :-[

I get your disappointment. Personally, I can live with the difference but that doesn't mean we shouldn't point it out. After all, WYSIWIG is why we accept the delay added by the colour matching process in the first place.

Just received mine.

I have to say, the colors are much more saturated than the renders suggest. It should be like half a shade less saturated. Definitely slightly disappointed.

I contacted omni type and they're just like
You can return them.

like wtf? Duties, marketprice, shipping fees back and 3% restock fee, and they can just sell as extras... ok budyy.

I don't think we should let this fly?

When did this become a thing? I thought GMK was so good, I heard in the past they would send out re-dos of certain keys that were really off.

The original colors look very luxury, nice. Which is why I pulled the trigger. Now it looks like some cheap ass Chinese set.

I even got two sets cuz I thought this was gonna be one I was going to use for the rest of my life cuz I fell in love with it.

I've bought 3 really expensive group buys in colors specifically to match their renders which used these original colors. (onyx in silver, portal in silver, 7v in navy). Like this is ****ed.

Omnitype was behind the 80082 one as well weren't they.

Edit: looking it into it further people's pictures of the keyset with the deskmat, it doesn't even match the deskmat green lol with the 3 circles.
It doesn't match the rama cap either.

also the HK gaming copy of this actually looks closer to the original (edit: on the mods). my god.

8008, dracula, now this. Omnitype... this is just outrageous

so pissed

I’m sorry, but you bought into three keyboards for this one colorway?

Can’t you just… put other keys on those nice boards? Or replace the mods with Mr Sleeves?

Gmk uses spectrometers to get near perfect color matching, to the point where they’ll ask you to pick a new color code if it doesn’t match (iirc). Not sure if I’d throw shade at them. Edit: Ignore me spreading misinformation  :eek:

If anything, the renders are at fault. Even still, I dunno if the outrage is necessarily warranted.

If you’re risk averse when it comes to GBs, buy things aftermarket or avoid first round GBs.

Sounds like you got your information from GMK Rainy Day post, but haven't read through whole thread :) They don't use spectrometer. It is up to the designer/vendor to match the colors. That is why people get multiple samples, trying to find one that is matching closest to their desired color.

You're totally right -- I stand corrected. In that case, pitchforks and torches! \s
