Love how clean the colors look, this is the type of thing that would work on absolutely beautiful on any board.

That being said, please consider adding a kit for 40's compatibility, it'd be criminal to not see this on the great variety of 40's boards being made in recent times, including those in IC currently!

Echoing this, and also icon+text mods

I understand it's preference, but want to suggest it anyway

Make sure to fill out the form! 40s kits often fail to hit MOQ so its inclusion is unlikely without feedback. Thanks!

You mention a color comparison, I see none.

How does this custom lighter black compare to N9 or the black used in GMK Noire?

If the same proportion of the community were interested, this will succeed without issue, as there’s a lot more people right now. So would GMK doom after the recent sad news...

All for a muted set, very nice!
Definitely interested, along with a solid base kit- Here's hoping that the slightly lighter black matches certain cases to a tee.

Haven't picked up WoB yet and after this I probably won't have to. That being said, I'm not a big fan of how bright and garish the accent kit is. I think softer colours would complement the soothing grey/black base kit a lot better. Very excited for the GB!

Pictures are never a good way to gauge colors accurately but it does look very similar compared to the physical color sample on my desk. I'd say it's a safe bet.

From the color comparison, the black looks lighter-than-CR, and darker-than-N9.

This might help folks,

Thank you for this! This is a great comparison and is accurate to what my physical GMK and custom color sample looks like. I can confirm the black is right in the middle of CR and N9.

I already have GMK Dark, GMK Nines, and bought GMK Stealth, but I will still buy this set. In fact if I saw this earlier I would probably have skipped the Stealth. I have way too many black/gray sets but that's just my color of preference.
