Just a quick bump to remind everyone that it's 2 hours left until we launch!

I just checked your shop and your VAT calculation is completely off.

I added a PCB for 49€ to the cart and the VAT calculation says 22€ which can not be right.

VAT in germany is 16% (usually 19% but it's temporarily lowered rn).

Even with the 39€ shipping (which imho is quite expensive for a package from Sweden to Germany) the VAT should be 14€.
Not 22.

the VAT percentage is based of the Swedish cost. According to our laws that is the amount that needs to be charged!

I was thinking of putting GMK Evil Dolch on it when it arrives.
GMK Modern Dolch might look good, anything with Grey, white, or if your looking for a Group Buy that is live right now GMK Beta just launched and runs till 23rd September.

Did you put in your US address.  Once I put in my address, the VAT went away for me.  I got an extra plate + PCB and it was just over $700

R1 ended a day ago. Board isn't supposed to ship for 4-5 months...

A bit early to hope for an R2.

I'm looking forward to people receiving their Classy boards and do let me know if you end up picking up one of the Classy deskmats! I would love to see your photos and even feature customer photos on my website with the board and mat.

Got shipping email, too bad I have no switches or keycaps to put on it at the moment, very impressed with the speed of the delivery, to bad I live in the UK and have to pay a fat import duty.

Received my board today and I couldn't be happier!
Absolutely perfect quality and QC :D

This was by far one of the smoothest and quickest groupbuys of the past year for me.
Thanks a lot for this awesome keyboard. Can't wait to build it.

Yep it's the grey one.
Switches are most likely going to be black inks but plans might change since I have to wait for GMK Apollo first.

Could not be happier with the quality of the anodized finish, KeyCult level of QC.

Good morning!

97/100 orders are fulfilled, I still haven't received any answers to my emails for the last orders.
Please reach out to me if you haven't received a tracking number.

!IMPORTANT!
Just wanted to remind you to use the plate foam if you want the best typing experience, the PC-plate was designed to be as flexible as possible WITH the plate foam.
It's extra thin and the flex cuts are brutal, the reason for this design is to keep the dampened sound signature while still maintaining a flexy typing experience.

The same goes for the brass plate, but the foam isn't as neccessary in that combo.

PC plate with foam is flexy so much that the PCB touches the back of the case. PC Plate cutouts for stabilizers were smaller but they fit with force. Other than that, everything about this keyboard is great in my opinion. I like this keyboard.  :thumb:

Unfortunately it’s not just the pc plate with stabilizer cutout issues.  My brass plate will not fit over durock stabilizers.  Unfortunately that’s all I have on hand.   Sadge

Was planning to build today.   ;D

Did some digging and found a box of stabilizers I had forgotten about. 

From my testing in the brass plate:

Stabilizer  Comments  Recommend? 
C3 EqualzToo tightNo
GMK Cherry screw-in  Too tightNo
GMK Cherry clip-in  Very tightMaybe
Durock v1Extremely TightProbably not
Durock v2Too tightNo
ZealGood fitYes

I highly recommend you pick up some zeal stabilizers if you build this one.


A no-brainer for most but I thought I would mention it here:
The plate foam isn't cut for stepped caps, so you'll have to make that cut before putting it together :)

The screws that go through the plate and into the top housing are a probably bit too long.  I think you could have gone with a shorter screw.  I very carefully cleaned out the holes with some Iso and a micro dental applicator.  Lots of gunk all the way at the bottom preventing the screw from going in all the way, resulting in a loose plate.  With careful cleaning I was able to get it all tight.  I used paper washers on two of the screws b/c I didn't feel comfortable tightening them further, risking them getting locked in place (it's happened one too many times for me in the past :p ).

I built mine with the Black housing/White stem JWK POM switches.  I put 205g0 on the stems and springs.  This might be the best sounding keyboard I've built to date.  Really happy with the outcome
