I received my Base Set. Unfortunately...

Sorry, all is fine, I was confused:

  • the Z is of course correct, I wrongly put it between the T and the U (German layout). It belongs to the bottom row next to the X and fits fine
  • I looked at the original announcement and also sorted all the keys: It's all there as advertised and I'll surely use the alternate key versions on future keyboards

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.

It is truly something special when you get your first GMK set that you've been waiting for like 14 months.

Very new to custom keycaps and group buys; of all the ones I've been looking at lately this is my favorite, these look outstanding. I too will be on the hunt for a set. Just chiming in that this is a really well done set and I hope everyone that pre-ordered enjoys them!

Got mine today and it looks excellent! Colors are spot on but super hard to accurately capture with my old phone so I won't post a pic and freak people out lol. Legends all look great too! Very wonderful set :D

My set just arrived and I had only a quick second to pop it open so I can't speak on the legends or anything, but I can say the colors came out exactly as I hoped and as advertised.  I was worried the alphas might come out too light blue for my liking, but that did not end up being the case. Perfect!  Amazing job coming through with this set.

Unfortunately, my 7u spacebar is warped to the point of being unusable on any of my boards.. first time experiencing this with a gmk set.  Real bummer.

That's pretty disappointing. My bars are a smidge warped again but nothing extreme and it doesn't impair function thankfully.

For anyone looking for GMK Ashes, or did not join because you don't like ABS, or the set was just too expensive. Look no further! I just posted an IC for IV Ashes, a PBT dye sub version of Ashes! :)

Eh, a smidge. Left is Ashes, right is Modern Dolch R1, sitting level with a coaster holding the far side of each flat to the rotary board. For me it doesn't seem to affect fit or key travel though, and it's pretty difficult to notice outside of taking it off the board and checking specifically for it so it doesn't really bug me.

Khajiit has wares if you have coin

Less snarky answer: if the vendors aren't selling extras, you're going to be paying a pretty penny on mechmarket

Yeah, saw that, keeping an eye on it. Just wondering if there's going to be another release since that one is limited qty.
