[IC] KKB Triumph Adler Neo | Returning a classic
« on: Tue, 25 June 2024, 11:51:09 »



KKB Triumph Adler Neo


SKME Discord MASJE Discord IC FORM


WHY???

Both James and I want this. It is as simple as that. A classic set that we believe should make a comeback.
Keykobo at this point have been putting out a good product in a reasonable time frame. What's not to like?!

Colors

We will be matching to the original. I will have my hands on this when I return on July 10, and then we can proceed.



Kitting
Target prices are subject to updates.
The key thing to note, despite kits being split, is trying to get a 'full base' at $95.


Base kit - $72 estimate



Numpad - $13 estimate



Addons, including 40s & bars - $10 estimate



F-row and shine-throughs - $12 estimate



Norde kit - $20 estimate



Alt mods, considering a slimmed-down version of this - $40 estimate



We may consider text-icon for the alt mod kit specifically. Here's a render sample on the Glare. Let us know!

More


Full kit pricing
Target price for BASE + ADDON + NUMPAD = 95 USD


Deskmats

Work in progress.

Vendors
We have reached out to blank regions earlier today. Subject to updates.
Confirmed vendors:
MENA - SKME
Taiwan - TypoWorks
US/CA -
EU - Oblotzky
UK - ProtoTypist
SEAS - ILumKB
OCE - Daily Clack
China - Zfrontier
Korea - GeonWorks

My luck with Indian vendors is all over the place so I handle these orders myself, and would suggest if youíre located here to create an Aramex SNS account. It is an efficient method and wholeheartedly cheaper for the buyer.

KKB Deutsche Mods
German mods are very cool. It is an option I really want to bring to the table.
New molds will(might) be made for these - it is expensive, we're doing some hard negotiating.
If you are seriously interested in these please take note in the IC form, it will help us gather more information and ideas on how to approach it.

Yes please.

Figured I'd leave my thoughts here as well:

- I'd love to see R5 for this, even if offered as it's own kit.
- Nipple 5? I've heard of KKB's stance on new molding, but considering that potentially 4 numpad kits are offered here this seems like the best time possible to make it happen.

R1 PgDn and End can be moved to numpad kit since those are for 1800 support.

Awesome project. Prices look great too, GLWIC!

A Key Kobo set with pricing in line for what it is, and classic colorway. Hot

The kitting is nice, the kittens were nice, the price is nice.
I wished there was a XT kit but the addons is something neo.

Love the F row kit where youíre gonna front print the OG F row symbols. What if those caps were also relegendables?

Iím still gonna buy without it

We already discussed potential putting in a r5 kit / nipple key into base (taking out the previously mentioned pg up/dn). Iíll come back to this in a bit, thanks for bringing it up

Damnit I mix up the nomenclatureÖI should clarify this, and Iíll update the post tonight. The original GMK rerun for TA got colors way off, so Iím using the TA90 from 2018 as a test. Still going to hunt the original ta set, pre GMK, and use those as well for color samples. All will be shown publicly as Iím testing.

Text icon? Perhaps. Make a note of it in the IC form  ;D

Set looks nice, GLWIC

But if i had to say something that KKB is known for having not the best placement for their legends like for example the right-shift key.

I noticed there's no UK support in the Norde kit or otherwise. Which is fine, though if it's selling through ProtoTypist there, they might like that?

We have it rendered - I forgot to add here, but TLDR all uk orders will have this included afaik

Unless something has changed I'm pretty sure any KKB set purchased through Prototypist have the option of adding the ISO-UK keys free of charge. Jae eats the cost because he's too good to us.

I'm definitely down for a few sets and I'd love to see the molds get made for German mods.

I think I would have expanded 40s kit to feature more keys to be honest. The way it is it seems to aim for mainly Minivan (12.75u) style boards.

Kinda wish there was also alt alphas kit (simply inversed, like what the base mods are). I would then buy base, alt alphas and alt mods and have two monosets.

Will you offer UK keys in the base kit or NorDe kit? You show them on the Petrichor render, but I can't see them in any of the kits.
