About:

This idea came to me when I originally fell in love with GMK Honeywell. I decided to see what a keyset would look like if I inverted the colors, and ended up changing the white to a grey color. I instantly fell in love with the result.

An explanation for the light grey/blue modifier color thanks to the help of Mito!

The code 250 85 05 give a lot of information about the color
It informs it is a blue because the hue (250) on RAL goes from 10 to 360 and 250 is on the blue range of the RAL circle
It has a lightness of 85, which goes from 0-100, which means it is pretty light
And has a little bit of chroma or saturation 05 (goes from 0-100 too)
05 means the color is not very intense
If you memorize the 10-360 circle position, you can tell by the code itself what color is being discussed and even have a rough estimate it in your mind

In for base + novelties + adventure deskmat.

I've been looking for a set to throw on my K-Type for a while and I really think this will be perfect :D might actually get some use out of the RGB for a change doing a cinder effect.

Are the ship out dates for the desk mats going to be the same as the keysets? Not sure if the plan is to ship everything out at the same time or as the production orders are met. I'm getting both the ghost and adventurer mat :D

Per 159's message on discord when someone asked the same thing: "Deskmats usually arrive quicker than keycaps. Production lead time is lower, but still subject to color sample and shipment by sea. I would say q3 to be safe but honestly with recent worldwide effects of covid19, a lot of dates have been up in the air."

I had been in thoughts which gray set should I buy (Ashes, Apollo or Lunar) but after cancelling Basalt this set is no buy for me.

This groupbuy is the huge disappointment.

Update: saw the message from your Discord. Sorry for emotions. I appreciate your efforts. But anyway, why you didn't want to wait until the end of groupbuy, I don't know.

Waiting until the end of the gb to cancel a low selling kit is worse. If basalt never hit MOQ by the end then people that only wanted ashes if they could get basalt would likely have missed alternative group buys that had kits to support their layout of choice.

Yeah I've ordered deskmats that go with keysets before and they're made of the same material as most mouse pads (the soft ones, not the hard plastic ones). Sometimes they're a little thicker than a mouse pad (4mm). IMO they're great for mice and usually dampen the sound of a keyboard a little.

I agree with this, and Tyson did originally say they were going to drop 40s because of lack of interest, but we asked and he tried it anyway. It didn't move from 16 kits the entire time it was open, so I fully understand pulling the kit. I've bought a few other kits and the deskmat and I'm very grateful we had the opportunity to show our interest for the 40s kit even though there wasn't enough to get it over the line.

Good Morning,

Ghost Kit(Alt Alphas): 83
Caldera Kit(Accent/Novelties): 97
Lahar Kit(Spacebars): 48

I will be flying to Japan on Tuesday for a vacation with friends, I'll try to update when I can, but expect the updates to be less frequent than they are right now.

Post by: Orphus8 on Mon, 16 March 2020, 07:30:04
So since you dropped the 40s kit that had the only 1u ctrl and alt will they be added in the base kit since they are used in many keyboard layouts and most of the time are included in base kits. I feel like not having any 1u ctrl and alt keys is a big oversight and definitely makes this set a deal breaker for. I was planing on getting the base kit, 2nd alphas kit and the 40s kit which would be enough to outfit 2 of my keyboards for around $231. Which would be nice considering gmk base kits can be 130-170 so 2 sets for 2 boards could be anywhere from 260 - 340 often higher when including novelties and other kits.

Would have loved to join, but the 40s kit being axed is a deal breaker for me. :( can't you just run that extra like the WoB extension kits, that are currently running? I am not going to join another group buy instead, because none of them run the Ashes colors for the mods. And I want those mods!

Any thoughts on making this in other profiles? Looking to move out of my SA Ashen caps and an SA Ashes set would be awesome.

Had this in my cart 4 or 5 times, but given the uncertainty of today's times I had to pass, for now.  :confused:

Might try to get this set aftermarket, but and SA profile would be way better.  :p

There is definitely not enough interest in 40s. That is all known generally, see also other GMK sets with 40s in their package. Sales numbers are usually bad.

That differs, sometimes a month or 2, but I can't give you a really good indication.

Only if you have ordered it separately btw.

I am looking into working with Nebulant on the colors so we can get as close of a match as possible to the RAL colors, similar to what was done for GMK Bingsu.

Sorry if this has been clarified already, but is this set using OG icons or centered icons? Itís a little hard to tell in the renders


Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

The set uses Left Centered Icons.

Oh... what was reasoning behind this if you dont mind me asking? I was under the impression that they were OG mods, left centered doesn't look right and seem inconsistent to me TBH

All kit renders have always shown left centered mods. I apologize for the confusion. It was a decision that I made from the very beginning with the set. MetallicCharles's renders show the left centered mods, but unfortunately his queue for renders was taking a lot long than anticipated so I switched to Abec to finish the renders for the set. Abec's board renders were inconsistent with showing that and I apologize. Left Centered imo looks nice in person when sets ship with it, I've seen it on 8008, and Bingsu. All of my next sets coming up will only feature Text + Icon mods as that is my favorite look for mods after falling in love with it on Honeywell.

Hey Tyson - do we have any updates? Are we still waiting in production queue?

Just wondering if we're still on track for the Q4 estimated ship date is all.

Thanks for running the GB!

The Color Samples have been confirmed! The keysets is now in the production queue. The alpha result is on point. The Mod color result is on border where 159, and I believe is within acceptance range, 2.3 DeltaEab. Basically it came down to my call, and I said yes, lets go with the color. I really love the sample colors and think you guys will too!

So mods are a bit lighter overall with yellow and oransigh tone (compared to what was planned) from graph. Can you compare samples to 8008 if you have?

Sorry for not responding to this when you originally commented, the mods are ever so slightly brighter, with that blueish tone that we were going for in the renders. It's def not a yellow orangish tone, that could just be the lighting above my desk. I apologize for that. I do not have 8008 to compare.

It was expected even before GB start that Q4 2020 was way too optimistic and it would take a year or so.

I wouldn't say it was way too optimistic, the set ran at the same time as Botanical and now is getting pushed back to Q2 2021 while Botanical is getting ready to ship. Botanical finished color matching in July while Ashes was color matched in August. But at the same time there are sets that ran in Dec that still have yet to ship. I would say that this long of a wait was majorly unexpected. I didn't think GMK would get this backed up. Hopefully they can get the new machines up and running to alleviate these extremely long wait times.

I dunno what the "usual" production time for GMK sets is as this was my first GB. However, I remember at the time there were a lot of talks (at various mediums) about GMK production generally being delayed due to variety of reasons (corona, lots GMK of orders, plastic delays from China and whatnot). At the time of ordering, I didn't expect it to get it this year, but its just me, I guess.

If you ordered the deskmat by itself then they should have shipped out. If you ordered the set or any kits with the deskmat then you will have to wait until the set ships for your deskmat to arrive.

Sorry, all is fine, I was confused:


Title: Re: [GB] GMK Ashes | Shipping!
Post by: Tyson on Sat, 05 June 2021, 14:38:26
I received my Base Set. Unfortunately, the keys are badly sorted. The 'Z' must come from some other set, I have 2 'J's and 'F's each, one with the index finger identation, one without... Does anyone else have problems?  :(

Can you post pics? I'm interested to see this, I haven't heard any issues from anyone else.

Also seeing as this is your first GH post I'm not too sure how new you might be to GMK sets, all GMK sets come with two sets of J's and F's they are called homing keys, the two sets in Ashes are Barred and Scooped. The barred have the indentation, where as the scooped are curved more and have no indentation. This is normal, as for the issue with your Z key, that might be an issue, we won't know until you post a pic of it. One train of thought that I have for this issue is that you might have gotten a Z key from the Ghost kit of Ashes, but I believe GMK sorts caps by hand, I'm not too sure if they use a machine to sort but it is entirely possible.

Perfect!  Amazing job coming through with this set.
