First off, thank you everyone that made the first and second run of this set hugely successful! Both Massdrop and PimpMyKeyboard had the set sell wonderfully. I really loved seeing all of your pictures of the set on your personal boards as well  :thumb:



I've had a few people interested in more novelties, extra kits, etc. I and first to admit that graphic novelties are not really my cup of tea. I don't really use them, so I don't spend a heap of time on them. In fact, Engicoder has done all of them thus far <3. Should you be inspired by the kit or color way to make a set of novelties (like Rad Hard was made for Nuclear Data) for the set, or anything of the nature I'm very open to that and would love to help out and provide files even. I'm not concerned with royalties either, you make it, you can get whatever profits from it. This wasn't ever about making money so I could care less about that part  :thumb:

In terms of kits, Round 2 was designed specifically to be as cost effective as possible. After orders ship I do plan on releasing "uber" kits via the PMK store that will not be cheap, but will include a heap of keys. Adapter, Planck, Dox, and Color mod kits specifically will see exponentially more keys. I may do a  blank Dox kit as well.


Welcome to "Jukebox" my 50's theme keyset. This is largely inspired by typewriters/Diner/car colors of the era (see album link at the bottom of this post), and I hope it to be instantly recognizable as being inspired by the 50's. If there is a child deal you think I should add feel free to throw out any suggestions. Child deals aren't set in stone yet, but I am working hard to make this as affordable as I can. The Base Kit will include everything needed for a standard TKL keyboard, Winkeyless, and Novelties.

Group Buy Plans

For Jukebox: Round 2 I still plan on letting Massdrop run the first batch again. PMK just finished selling extras and no new kits will be available until the next run now. Expect the buy to happen within the next 2-3 months. I will update the schedule accordingly when I find out more concrete dates.

Wow! that's not what I expected, but I suppose that sort of turquoise is evocative of cars and "white goods" from the era, perhaps a little more muted though?

Do you have any examples of the reference images you're drawing inspiration from?

Unfortunately that green is the only remotely "seafoam green" SP has in ABS. I may do a light blue Child Deal for modifiers though if there is interest.

Any thoughts on what you'd like to see in novelties for it?

I long wanted to do an "triple mint sundae" SA set with cream cheese on mint alphas,
chocolate on cream cheese modifiers and cream cheese on strawberry accent keys. This is pretty close to that.

I like these colors.  If you do go with an alternate blue, make it work with your sea foam so people can mix and match them.  Maybe align font size with Retro and/or Round 4/5 to get some compatibility going.  No clue about novelties.

Thanks for the input! Yeah, the blue will definitely be compatible, I should have something up by tomorrow with that. An option for a blue Enter or ESC would be nice I think as well to go along with the seafoam green.

Thank you for the kind words! The modifiers are my biggest concern right now, I'm lacking some decisive direction in that department. If nothing comes up and there is enough interest I'll probably have a few simple ones for ESC  and the Windows key and leave it at that.

I'm in the very early stages of working on a 50's theme set. This is largely inspired by typewriters/Diner colors of the era. I am currently working on Novelty Keys with a retro-futuristic appeal. I will post renders as soon as I finish them. Child Deals will be the last thing I add based on what people want. This is my first design, so any input/advice would be greatly appreciated on any aspect of the project. Will add any details below as they come.

The set is Row 3,1,2,3,4,3 in SA profile. I am pretty set on this, as it replicates the feel of a typewriter as close as possible.

Colors are Signature Plastics ABS:
  • Alphas are TM with VCO labels
  • Modifiers are RCQ with VCO labels

I still have not decided on a font yet. I like the current font but am not set on it. Thoughts?

thanks GeekHackers.

I think the blue in the typewriters is nice, but I'm not feeling the blue-green color in the mockup. Seems like BBQ or BBJ might be a better match for your inspiration pics.

I think most sets have the backtick/tilde key and the backslash/pipe key the same color, whether that's the alpha color or the mod color. I don't think I've seen one of each like this. Care to share how you landed on this decision?

At any rate, you can save yourself about 2 pages of discussion by adding the two keys in the other colors to a child pack.

Post by: livingspeedbump on Thu, 30 April 2015, 21:31:22
Yeah its a toss up. Some sets, like PuLSE had the back tick the Alpha color, Ill probably include both in the standard set. I like it to be the alpha color, but you have a good point, many people will want it to match the other modifiers.

I like the idea. VCO definitely has that 50's car vibe, but the red legends and Esc aren't to my taste.

IMHO stick with the green and not complicate things with the blue option. Make it look good with two-tone green... like VCO alphas, VAG or VAF mods.

Rock Hudson would approve ;-)

Thanks! I do plan to include a Green ESC with the original modifier set, and I'm definitely leaning more towards not having a full set of blue modifiers. There are already so many great blue+neutral sets that we don't need another. I will probably still do some blue modifier keys though for small child deals (like F row, ESC, Arrows, Enter).   
 
I'll play around with the Two tone Green and post some renders just to see what people thing! Interesting idea! Thanks for the feedback!

Here is a render with VAG Mods and VCO Alphas. I supposed I could add both of these as child deals of they are popular enough, gives the option of an all VCO keyboard or the full green like you said. Tried to keep a little red in there as that flashy 'vette color goes so well with the green.

Dont worry! TM is definitely going to be Alphas with the VCO green modifiers. I'm pretty set on those colors for the base set! Just doing some renders as other people suggest them simply to see how they look :) If one becomes popular enough it will be a child deal, not take over as the original deal.

Originally I considered offering a full set of Blue modifiers. I scratched that idea as the Green really is my vision for this set. Seafoam is a very distinctive color for the period I want to represent. That being said I will play with a few idea to have blue modifiers for other keys like the F row, Enter, ESC. Here Is The current color of blue mixed with the green. Obviously I could alternate the F row and will offer arrow keys, but this is just to see the color.

To expand on what I was saying, there are plenty of sets with white/pale grey/beige alphas and coloured mods.
I just thought two-tone green would be unique and different to the rest. The red legends are just plain wrong to me... you could invert the colours for legends.
But it seems that may be too far away from the original design and to please everyone, you'll probably go back to yet another neutral alpha/coloured mods set.

Post by: livingspeedbump on Thu, 30 April 2015, 22:51:45
Yeah, as of now I like the red, green, and tan scheme(I have a typewriter with tan/red keys with a green shell that this is based on). But if it turns out that more people want an all green set I can go that way.   
 
More realistically, if it does run close to my original vision (tan, green, red) I'd be more than happy to give you what I have and let you run a full alternate set, or work with you to set that up (Like Miami vs. Miami Night) with a color scheme along the lines you are thinking. I do think that would be popular as well, and different enough that it wouldn't be redundant to have both.

This is pretty awesome. I'm totally digging it. I'm partial to the blue color the typewriter though. If you have a child deal that uses that colors with the modifiers, I would be all over that.

To be honest though.. I'd probably buy it no matter what color it came in. :))

Correct, the main set will be the first image in the original post.

It will be enough to cover a TKL, and include a few extra keys as well.

I will run the green only if there is enough interest.

Yea, I agree with this.

What do you think about white or creme legends on the green mods, and then black legends on the creme alphas?  The typewriters from your pics have the white keys with black legends, and I think that looks great like that.  Either way, I like where this set is going! 

I'm wondering how I could tastefully get some chrome accents into it.

Thanks! I will be offering blanks no matter what color ends up as the legends as well. I'll do a few renders of that later though!

Oh yeah :) Bel Air keyboard! haha

I'm still trying to figure out the best way to make the most people happy with this. It is impossible to make everyone happy, and there are quite a few that are wanting the red font. That being said I do want to offer a blank set as well (I figured since it is sculpted it will be easiest to offer a set instead of individual keys like other buys have) OR offer a set with black legends. I do like the red font personally, the typewriter of mine this is based on has cream/red keys and its really a tribute to that. Also looking into running the full green set with black modifiers as something else later.

I think the RCQ on VCO looks great, but what about a Jukebox-Purple for the legends on the TM alphas, RDA looks closest

Or, perhaps a Neon-Blue on the TM alphas such as BBQ or BFN

Are you really dead set on 3-1-2-3-4-3 or would you be open to 1-1-2-3-4-4 like all Cherry, DCS, OEM, etc sets?

Another option is like 7bit's sculpted SA sets, 1-2-3-4 on alphanumerics and ALL mods in Row 3.

As long as the alphanumerics are 1-2-3-4 I think you'll get the typewriter feeling, like hammering away on a Selectric, for instance.

+1 on the chrome case with fins, that would be perfect! :D

+1 on this. SA Retro is going all out on retro goodness with 1-1-2-3-4-4 so it would be great if this follows suit... those row 1 keys on the function row definitely convey the old school vibe.

BTW Thanks for taking the time to bring it here to GH for people to toss ideas around and give suggestions. I hope my feedback is welcome and not too critical.

At first, that red/green/white combo really wasn't that appealing, but I must admit it's growing on me. But the novelties aren't that great... the icons are a bit vague... they look like drive-in or motel signs or something, and the script font, while theme-appropriate, doesn't seem to work for me aesthetically. Something that's classically 50's decor, like pointy star shapes or an atomic symbol, might work better. e.g.

For the novelties, how about a font like one of these:

http://www.linotype.com/1047/LinotypeGneisenauette-family.html
http://www.identifont.com/identify?6+%20+1KJ+43+4C+4SN+9Z

They look more '50s to me.

About the icons, you can't have really sharp corners on a doubleshot legend, so it would have to be slightly rounded whichever ones you choose. Perhaps a stylized vacuum tube or jukebox or neon diner sign.

Another option for a case design would be covered with padded red vinyl :)

I think you need to research the limitations of double-shot legends. I don't know exactly what they are myself, but I'm pretty sure it needs to be simpler than the one with the astronaut. SP are basically engraving a mold for a separate piece of the keycap which has to be "contiguous"... picture how a stencil for letters has to deal with the holes... except those joins are "below" it in the keycap. So points are not going to be perfectly sharp, and small details aren't possible. TBH I'm not really sure, you'll have to confirm it with SP or other keycap designers.

so the novelties will have to be extremely basic for doubleshots, and I am dead set on this being SA doubleshots, so for now the interest check will go up on PMK within the week without the novelties being done. I will work with some people to come up with something that works hopefully by the time it hits the sale page. I didn't want to sacrifice and have to go with a lesser quality simply because of novelties.

Got a red nuka cola cap? that would be perfect ;)

Good plan.

Some more feedback:

- Needs a white `~ key. Mockups look strange with a green one while the \| is white. But obviously keep the green `~ and \| for the "60% symmetry" lovers.
- Add a Tsangan kit. You've got 7U spacebars but no 1.5U mods/1U win key to go with it. You've got 1U + and 1U 0 for Cherry 1800 layout, but they need the 1.5U Ctrl and Alt to go with it. Converting the 7U spacebar kit to a full Tsangan kit would be reasonable. Red 1U winkeys would be cool, maybe with the novelty icon if you do one.
- Dvorak/Colemak kit has misaligned legends.

Agreed, the tan ~ key will be included in the base set as well, I'll fix the picture later to show that.

I will add everything for the Tsangan kit as well in place of just a 7u spacebar. Thanks for letting me know what I need for that.

Red Win keys sound like a good idea, will add.

Novelties are being worked on now still to the specs I was sent :)

(and yeah, i noticed the Dvorak legends are a bit off, I will correct that tonight)

Thanks SO much for all the great feedback! I couldn't make the set a great one without help like this!

Hey, I know this is totally unrelated, but I noticed from your sig that you have boards with MX Clears and with MX Greens. I have clears and am considering getting greens, but from the ripometer (on Reddit) it seems that Greens are significantly heavier even than Clears. What's your actual experience? Do they seem much heavier? Are Greens viable for a daily driver board?

Post by: livingspeedbump on Thu, 07 May 2015, 13:40:53
Oh yeah, Greens are absolutely viable for a daily driver. I've basically weeded out the collection from anything other than blues or greens as far as Cherry switches go. In my honest opinion, Clears feel just as heavy as Greens, possibly heavier due to their unique force curve after actuation. Greens are very crisp, while clears are not, which probably helps them not feel as heavy either. Greens absolutely aren't as heavy feeling as some would make them out to be, especially after a week of use it will just feel normal and other switches will just feel...flimsy. I cant say enough about Greens, highly recommended by me.

I am not awesome. I just want these caps so bad it hurts.

I see the 60% has numbers row 1 but novelties as row 3 including the backspace. Will 60% top row be row 1 or 3?

Thank you so much!! You guys seriously rock, this is going way faster than I though :D

Hm, you make a very valid point. Do you know what other sets have done in the past? Open to any suggestions. I could either

A) throw a few extra keys in the base set or B) Make a 60% novelties Child deal.

I really want to keep things as cost effective as possible here, so not sure which one would be preferred. I'll start mockups of what both would be like to hopefully get some price quotes though. I definitely think the top of the 60% should still be R1. Very good observation :)

Ok, looked into this.

I added a R1 ESC and Green ~ key to the base set.

For novelties I may add a 60% child deal that will have the ones needed in R1 or simply include them in the normal novelties set (which makes a bit more sense to me). I will have this live when I get home from work late tonight. Let me know if you see anything else to change!

Also, how would you feel about making the Forums keys R3 1.25u so they could be used on the bottom row? This way they would be universal to 60% or TKL/TK and not add keys/cost to the set?

What size spacebars are in the adapter kit?

Looking for a set to fit my K65.. it needs a 6.5U spacebar (among other things for the bottom row)

Your core kit still shows green ~` as default, needs to be white, to match \|
Then the green ~` joins green \| at the bottom.

I'm going to push for 1-1-2-3-4-4 profile again :D  I can't see the attraction for row 3 at top and bottom. Row 4 on the bottom row is no different to OEM or Cherry profile (and basically becomes parallel to the desk if the keyboard is inclined). Row 1 on the function key row really plays on the vintage/retro vibe. I'm typing on Hack'd by Geeks right now (which is 3-1-2-3-4-3) and while I love it, damn I wish it was 1-1-2-3-4-4. SA Retro will be 1-1-2-3-4-4 (due to people wanting it, and Matt3o listening!) and people are happy.

Just check out Penumbra and look at that function row... *drool*

AFAIK there was only one round, and it was 1-2-3-3-3-4. Round 2 will be "fully sculpted" (I think 1-1-2-3-4-4 seems likely, given SA Retro is like this).

No must, just another thought:

You have a 7x creme spacebar. What about the other colors? You could do an extra spacebar pack with 7x red and turquoise spacebars, or maybe remove the spacebars from the color pack and put them into their own sets with a 7x and a 6.25x spacebar for each color? Not sure what you think about adding additional packs. :rolleyes:

Not sure what's happening with PMK right now. After my set, the next set with a large number of votes was Material Metaphor which had nearly 400 votes. It was Dye-Sub PBT DSA, which should get the average reddit user at least 3/4 hard.  It didn't even get the 25 sales needed to tip. Maybe the recent Massdrop Granite buy stole all it sales, but the last 3 buys on PMK have failed to tip. I think its poor website may be taking its toll.

What it basically comes down to is the actual key-set itself, and whether it becomes extremely popular and endears lots of people to off load their wallets.   The last 3 buys at PMK didn't have that type of attraction, it's as simple as that.

livingspeedbump is doing this the right way, IMHO. He's asked for and listened to advice, and implemented nearly ever suggestion I've made to improve the keyset to be either more "standard" or more compatible, and striking a balance between kit sizes/cost and the MOQ concerns. He's also not rushing this to GB or fixated on how fulfilment will be achieved.

I'm cleaning up my Inkscape mockup template so he can use this to produce mockups in future, that look a bit closer to the real deal:

Work Log / Currently Working On...
  • Still finalizing non-standard child deals and figuring out if they should be combined or individual. Combined means more likely to tip, yet more expensive. Thoughts?
I'd make fewer bigger sets to raise the chance of them meeting the MOQ, because I see this set not being as popular as Granite for example which allowed for many child deals (what a bummer). I hope that it's possible to get quotes from SP on the sets to keep costs reasonable.

I wonder how Massdrop handles the MOQ of child deals at all since their system only allows for the MOQ of the main set and all the child-sets are counted as variations of the main set. (that's why Granite has such a large number for example).

Yeah I'm still waiting to hear back from that about those types of logistics. I'm pretty prepared to do either, but the general consensus seems to be Bigger Kits = Better even though it is slightly more expensive. The difference between $10 and $15 bucks for a kit you need isn't that bad, especially if it comes with extra keys. The color mod/novelty kit can really be scaled accordingly with as many or few color variations as possible.

That being said I know some kits aren't shown that were suggested (smaller 40% support/ortholinear support) and I'm still getting mock ups done of them, though I'm not sure why will tip. Due to the sculpted profile its not quite as easy to make kits that cover a lot of sets all at once.

If the base set does well enough I'm strongly considering doing a GB for these from here though. Feel free to post/pm me with any questions/suggestions still.

In the nordic/slavic/DE kit, there seems to be an error?

Judging by this http://www.qpad.se/uploads2/MK80/QPADMK80-NORDIC-Layout.png,

[ ] should be R2, [? +] should be R1,  [ * ' ] should be R3, [ ] and [ ]  should also be R3. (=> only [ ALT GR], [ SHIFT ], [  <> ], [ , ; ], [ . : ], [ ^ " ] is R4)

On another note, this looks so so promising. I've been looking for something like this; it feels just like christmas.

Doing a Reply so everyone sees this.

Massdrop has said they are very interested and want to do this drop!

Good news for all! So details with SP still need to be worked out, along with timing it to drop when there isn't another big SA drop like Retro going on, this gives everyone a chance to recover their wallets and not have to decide between two sets, instead you can just buy both ;)
Sounds great! :cool:

Sorry, I asked before, but what about turquoise and red 7u spacebars?

Added red to the 7u kit. The turquoise one just didn't look nearly as good and we decided to cut down on extra costs and help people get the most bang for their buck.

Maybe I've overseen it, but I think your German/... ISO kit misses the R4 key with underscore and dash (left of right shift):

Thanks for pointing those out!

Yeah, the renders still aren't perfect, I'm kind of shelling them out in a moderately unfinished state just so I can get feedback on their content! I want to make sure the Rows/Keys are all correct, once that is finished I'll do one really polished run of the renders.

Post by: livingspeedbump on Fri, 15 May 2015, 17:35:18
Not this one. The Sculpted SA was one of the few "non-negotiable" aspects of this set, and that is a SP exclusive.

I realize there are quite a few right now, though the community does also love their SA keycaps. That being said this whole kit is based off a 50's typewriter and those higher profile keys really enhance the look and feel, which in turn enhances this set. Also, this is so far along that changing a profile now would delay the project for a very long time. Massdrop is on board, talks with SP are happening, so...basically not possible. Their pricing is great, totally agree, but my whole vision for this set would be compromised if I switched now.

Now, I've seen other sets where people were making SA profile sets based off of games, which was a little confusing to me. That is one of the cases where I would definitely look into/use a different profile. SA is pretty much just for typing.

In the future would I be interested in doing something through JTK? Absolutely. Could this set even be run as a JTK set one day? Perhaps, I wouldn't be against it if there was interest in the future. I don't create these these sets and want to "control" them, I really just do it for the community. I hope that was an acceptable and understandable answer.

Man, you must have some crazy nerds where you live if you have to fear for your keycaps getting stolen  :p Though I'll probably buy 2 as well, I'd like to do one 60% with the red mod kit and one TKL with the standard kit. I've got a POK3R just sitting around with no aftermarket keycaps on it and it's driving me nuts. It needs more personality.

Thanks! Yeah, I am aware but don't want to go with the cluttered look of it. A lot of sets will simply include either/or as a legend to keep the uniform look when possible. Most people seem to prefer it that way.

Just added JD40/Planck/Atomic/Ergodox support, but they will not be available until after the first run. When the new PMK store gets its overhaul I will make them all available. There hasn't been any huge interest in any of them, but thanks to the way the new store will work it would be silly not to make it as compatible as possible. It should also be noted that these kits will all be R3. This is to make it as customizable and affordable as possible.

Your kits look good.  Nice job man.

One note on the Planck/Atomic kit (realizing that it will be down the road a ways): Your "High" and "Low" keys can really say anything you want.  I think the stock nomenclature is "Raise" and "Lower" on those keys -- the logic being that you're raising or lowering the programmable layers on the board.  I used High and Low on my Danger Zone kit because it felt more in line with the aviation theme (high altitude, low altitude) and because those legends fit the space on a 1u cap, but it's not remotely standard.  I've also seen "Up" and "Down" on those keys.  Feel free to use whatever fits best with your theme.  If you still prefer High and Low, that's totally cool too.

If the comments so far are any indication this set seems like it will be a runaway success.   :thumb:

Thanks! Someone had mentioned it specifically, but now that I know where it came from I'm going to change it ;)

Mine has an up arrow/down arrow, but it was pieced together with a crap bag so I assumed maybe "high" and "low" were standards.

Perhaps a "high gear" "low gear" would vibe better.

And hey, Danger Zone already has a keyboard on my wall just waiting for it to hit GB.

Basically overhaul the whole process, so you may have to wait a little for the site to be redone and put it up as an interest check there when it's ready. I like the idea behind the new system, but I think it will take away a little of the "limited time only" exclusivity of some of the sets. Definitely better for planning which sets to buy when, though.

Yeah, some of the novelty is gone.  But it's better than a constant stream of latecomers asking when the next round is happening or if the GB is still going.  And I guess if you still want the novelty you can always run your own "traditional" group buy and just have SP make the caps, or make arrangements with CtrlAlt, or do it like Ivan does.  This really only affects PMK.

From what I understand you may still be able to run a limited run through them, but I'm not entirely sure. I do know for a fact that you'll only make your 5% as a designer if it goes through their Key Store (I asked as I'm going through Massdrop with R1). Still, I didn't set out to make money on this, and because thats the way we've been going with this set for a while I'm surely not going to change it just so I can make a buck or two(I also figure it means there won't be much competition this month or so).  That being said it should  still be up in their new store later, though I may wait 6 months or so before resubmitting after the first drop.

Yeah, I'll be curious how this affects the guys like CtrlAlt that will still be doing one-of group buys. I can really see it going both ways, though I feel like that will still be a pretty valid model for sets.

I think CtrlAlt is shifting its business to JT Keycaps from now on.  I know Bunny has stated at least once that Hacked by Geeks was his last SP group buy.  So as far as GeekHack is concerned, everything is either run through the PMK system or it's moving on from SP completely.  Engicoder's 1976 add-on pack is the only one I'm aware of that will be run as an SP "traditional" group buy.

There's 7bit's Round X, but I consider that more of a Deskthority thing.  :P

They have great prices, and look much better than SP DCS keycaps, which I hate. I can see traditional GB's being run just to have a limited set and it being a big hit. I can also see it flopping because the market will seem a bit oversaturated at first, especially compared to what we're used to. Time will tell. It does suck I have to wait for Danger Zone longer :(
This will have to hold me off until then  :thumb:

Data posted in the Danger Zone thread about what SP wants to do with their system: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=68563.msg1751207#msg1751207

Basically overhaul the whole process, so you may have to wait a little for the site to be redone and put it up as an interest check there when it's ready. I like the idea behind the new system, but I think it will take away a little of the "limited time only" exclusivity of some of the sets. Definitely better for planning which sets to buy when, though.

Yeah, I'll be curious how this affects the guys like CtrlAlt that will still be doing one-of group buys. I can really see it going both ways, though I feel like that will still be a pretty valid model for sets.

I think CtrlAlt is shifting its business to JT Keycaps from now on.  I know Bunny has stated at least once that Hacked by Geeks was his last SP group buy.  So as far as GeekHack is concerned, everything is either run through the PMK system or it's moving on from SP completely.  Engicoder's 1976 add-on pack is the only one I'm aware of that will be run as an SP "traditional" group buy.

JTK is just getting their DCS/Cherrry/OEM (or what every they are calling their profile) finished up, so I doubt they will be jumping into creating a whole set of spherical molds anytime soon.

I only got the Modern selectric alphas, the modifiers are SOOOOOOO expensive, its insane. I think a lot of this is due to how many custom keys that had to make for it.

When I got my original quotes, Jukebox will originally start at $115 for the whole base kit that covers TKL, and Winkeyless, with a few novelties.

Yeah, that's why I'm no longer considering it at the moment. I definitely can't get all of them. The Ergodox kit is also super expensive, because all the modifiers have legends.

Post by: livingspeedbump on Wed, 27 May 2015, 12:34:15
Yeah, its very unfortunate.

Though these are just things that have to be considered when developing a kit. Getting the community feedback/quotes from PMK ahead of time are always useful. When you just rush through it all big surprises like that can happen and really make the kit useless because so many things wont tip.

I know it's late in the process to be making requests, but how about a reverse-color alphas kit?

Or perhaps a reverse-color gaming alphas kit (WASD + ERFG)

Honestly, I don't think there's nearly enough interest for a full set of reverse-color alphas, people seem to really dig cream color alphas from the feedback I've gotten. The gaming kit isn't a bad idea, but I'm already in the process of submitting everything. Because I am trying to give a base kit that is as compatible as possible, I really had to weed out the keys that I didn't think would be needed, and WASD keys, though fun, aren't a necessity.

That being said after the original run on Massdrop I will be open to running a few extra child kits. I could post a reverse color alpha kit in the interest check on PMK when it reopens, but it would need at least 50-100 votes just on that kit alone. The WASD kit can also be posted, I'm sure that won't be hard to tip for an extra 5-7 bucks in the store, especially for everyone that already has the set. I think it will be much cheaper to get the base + available child deals on Massdrop than PMK later on.

Thanks for the input!

Drop should happen monday or tuesday, my phone call with Massdrop today had me making sure the discussed changes are ready early monday, and once Melissa gets back with a quote for the new kits I will approve everything and the drop can commence!

The kits have been altered so there are more kits, but smaller. Essentially you won't really get any keys you don't specifically need. In my discussion with Massdrop they made the good point that just having a lower base price will make the set visibly cheaper without clicking on it and hopefully increase sales by making it more affordable. If I decide to ever run this kit again though the PMK store I should mention that it will be with a full kit as originally planned, perhaps even with the numpad added and very few child deals (now that any child deals in the store will also need 50 votes). If all goes well I may hold the set for a year or so and let Massdrop simply run the next set as well. I digress, I'm getting ahead of myself here, I just want to make sure everyone knows exactly what is going on, you all deserve to know!

For now lets concentrate on the current drop!

Base pricing should hit somewhere between 49-59 (target price here). Regardless this should end up being a relatively affordable set  :thumb:

Was hoping you would give it another week or so since Retro GB is due to finish next week as well.

I'll try to remember to ask how long it will run for. Unfortunately I'm not having a whole lot of say in scheduling as it really comes down to Signature Plastics and Massdrop.

I'll mention that though (im in on retro as well) and see about a possible week delay :thumb:

So I can tell you this much now, and probably confirm a lot of speculation tomorrow or tuesday.

The plan as of Friday was to have it up this weekend, but Melissa left early and we didn't have quotes. Wasn't a bad thing. I redid a lot of the child deals/base kit to be a bit smaller and more affordable by breaking them up. This was a request by Massdrop. There was a bit more to it, but their logic was very sound. We are aiming at around $50-$60 for the base set. I should have quotes if not the actual pricing tiers for you tomorrow.

I also requested the drop be held off until this upcoming weekend/next monday. Retro will finish this week and myself along with tons of other people are in on that, so a little extra wallet recover time would be nice as suggested by a few people here.

End of the day, the set WILL drop within a week, hopefully at some good price points (we are expecting it to do a little better than the last few PMK sets and at least getting a nice low price, especially now for the base kit).

Thanks for following the thread though! I really hope you enjoy the set!

Extra week would be nice, I just dropped 200$ on SA Retro. I get paid Friday though so no worries if there is no delay :). All these group buys are killing my wallet, I for sure want these and the black on black dye subs Ivan has running,  I am going to pass on Modern Selectric.

Yeah I think I got out for around that much on Retro. Wasn't going to miss it though.

I sadly passed on Modern Selectric too. The modifier price is really what drove me away. I'd have bought it up in a heartbeat if a standard text modifier option was available.

Hey everyone! I have some concrete news for ya,

Massdrop listened to the request to push the drop back a bit. The drop will be at the end of next week (June 12-14ish). They will be dropping a DSA set tomorrow where Jukebox would have been. This was a community request, and I've tried my best to listen to every bit of input I could along the way. I think it works well as the drop should finish right As usual, this was a very good request, it give everyone (myself included) a bit of time to recover from Retro.

Pricing is being worked on now, but he says its looking good so hopefully it is around the target range he wanted (50-60 for the base). I'll let everyone know more on that when I know, should be a day or two.

I just thought I should confirm the drop dates here for everyone so you know its coming! Start saving!

Not sure yet, since Massdrop is handling the set they are doing most of the talking to SP now. Obviously it shouldn't take that long, 4-6 weeks seems to be the norm for SP now. Its an odd time with all the new stuff they are doing there though so I'm honestly not sure.

There could also be different times for different profiles.  Good question though, I'll report back when I have something concrete for you. End of the day I'd rather SP be honest about time than have huge delays.

Give it the full 13 (or more) day wait period, the longer it sits on MassDrop, higher the numbers of people signing up for them  :thumb: .

I've requested that they give it as long as they can. I was all about doing this in a timely manner, but I've tried pretty hard not to just rush through everything either  :thumb:

Hey can I get a R7 set for the alphabet of the Quechua languages of pre-Columbian South America? I can't believe you don't have that. And what about an HHKB-compatible set for the nomadic Pashtun tribes of South Central Asia?

I'm ready.....Brown switches instead of blue to be nice to coworkers. but blue numpad when things get crazy. But when a paper or project is due I plan on buying a pok3r blue switch with Danger Zone keycaps for the "Big Guns"
TLDR Browns (Jukebox) playing cool with the guys, Blues (Danger Zone)when its time to go to war.

Do you have any more pics of that numpad? How did you color the case?

I don't expect this 1-post user to respond, but why on earth would you want a R4 tilde? You realize SA R4 is the bottom row (ZXC...), right?

I knew it had to be something like that, which is why I didn't want to just laugh off the idea. Still, I don't see a whole lot of interest in this, unless i do a non-standard-non-standard child deal. I'll run a poll though and do what people want though  :thumb:

I probably wouldn't have responded if I didn't come back looking to see if I got a response. I don't quite understand how this forum works yet as I just signed up yesterday.

But yes, it's because I switched my right ctrl with tilde on my pokerII. I realize it's probably a rare case. But you never know unless you ask, amiright?

Post by: livingspeedbump on Thu, 26 November 2015, 14:08:39
Hey everyone!

Thanks for following this set the first go around! I'm finally starting things back up to prepare for Round 2, which will happen much sooner than later.

All content will be updated in the Original Post as I go, so any new info will be there as well as in the comments to make it easy for you to keep track of what is happening.

I will have new rough renders of my new kits in a few days for feedback and thoughts. New possible kits include Planck/Atomic/JD40, 75%, EergoDox, HiPro homing row, Row 4 Shifts (for people that already own the kit).

Massdrop will be running this kit again.

I am also going to talk with a few community members and develop some new novelties for Round 2, and will be taking out a few from round 1, just to keep each drop a little different.

Sorry, this isn't happening. Even if you do pay for a mold I'll have to stick it in a kit, and people that don't want it or care will still have to pay for it. I already trimmed out a lot of the "fat" with my existing novelty kit for the new kits as well, to get this down to being as affordable as always.

If someone wants to use the colors of Jukebox and make a buy for keys that fit the set, you are more than welcome.

Yeah the 660C/M will be taken into consideration, and the proper keys will be provided in a kit. Not sure if the adapter kit, or another kit, but I will have them  :thumb:
This is a first! (I think)

Most of the time you just have to deal with not having a extra left shift key every gb I've seen.

I have to admit, I've never really understood the problems people always have finding an extra left shift, I alway just trade ISO users for them, but it'll be really nice to have it all taken care of and integrated into the kit.

Uh, it will still just be MX caps, so if you want to use them on a 660C and not a 660M you'll still need the sliders. I'm just throwing in the needed keys to accommodate for the layout.

Hey everyone!

Thanks for following this set the first go around! I'm finally starting things back up to prepare for Round 2, which will happen much sooner than later.

All content will be updated in the Original Post as I go, so any new info will be there as well as in the comments to make it easy for you to keep track of what is happening.

I will have new rough renders of my new kits in a few days for feedback and thoughts. New possible kits include Planck/Atomic/JD40, 75%, EergoDox, HiPro homing row, Row 4 Shifts (for people that already own the kit).

Massdrop will be running this kit again.

I am also going to talk with a few community members and develop some new novelties for Round 2, and will be taking out a few from round 1, just to keep each drop a little different.

Count me in for 75% of course, all row 4 revisions, new novelties, aaaand... Wait, what's a HiPro homing row?

EDIT: Read the notes on that in the OP! I had no idea the Realforce HiPro had that sort of homing row, but that sounds amazing. I'm in for one of those as well! :thumb:

You're not doing anything wrong but it's previous obvious that it's not a common design if you needed to ask three separate designers. When it comes to sets everybody can't have what they want so generally there is a design for the populous to agree on.

Yes, I was perhaps a bit too harsh. It sounds from what you're proposing though that you would end up with mismatched profiles, and nobody wants that.

Well, almost every spacebar has a different profile from the rest of the keys in its row, so can't the profiles of the keys on the bottom row already be considered mismatched?

I was making these suggestions for ergonomics reasons: If they were taken, my thumbs wouldn't have to press on sharp corners while using the Alt keys and the number pad 0 keys and my middle finger wouldn't have to hurdle when it moves from the up arrow key to the down arrow key and back.

Just turn the row 4 keys 180 degrees and you get an even milder angle against your thumbs when compared to row 3.

To be fair to him, that was the standard design before people determined that there were R4 1.25u mods in semi-matte surface finishes and started making spherical sets match the profiles used on cherry sets.  Also, I believe 7bit prefers R3 mods too since there are no convex bottom row mods available in SA, and if you look at round 5(a) (http://deskthority.net/wiki/Round_5a) that is how all those sets are profiled.  So he was just asking for what used to be the standard instead of the new flavor people like.

That's not what I'm talking about. I don't care what he wants the bottom profile to be, as long as the bottom profile is all uniform. He elaborated on a different thread that he wanted only some keys on the row as R3, which I just think would be ugly.

Ah, I didn't see that other thread, I figured by the mentioning of "thumbs" in this thread it was referring to the bottom most row.  I was also primarily replying to Steezus saying it was "not a common design", which it seems quite common and on several sets I have (bottom row as R3 that is), so if he only meant a handful of keys, then yea, that is not so common.

Nah, I'm a pretty big fan of R4, both feel and aesthetic wise. I can understand wanting R3, but thats just one of the little details I don't want to change this go around. Another reason not to change as well is that I'll be adding a few new novelties, thus mixing and matching from both sets wouldn't be possible if i changed my profile now. Fair question though!

I don't understand … can you please explain why you like it better for the keys I mentioned to be in R4 rather than R3? If they were R3, my thumbs wouldn't have to hit sharp corners on the Alt keys and my right middle finger wouldn't have to hurdle over one when it moves from the down arrow key to the up arrow key.

1. Round 2 of Jukebox must be fully integrated and swappable with the first one. I want the buyers that supported the first buy to be able to buy the new novelty packs and colors and be able to swap them out with their Round 1 set without having to buy a full new base set. This reason alone makes the sculpting set in stone. This is not something that will change.
2. I think the slightly upward sculpt is comfortable, more so than row 3. Other designers have felt the same as well. Sets like Round 5, Calm Depths, Commando, Penumbra, etc all have R4 as the bottom row. R4 is MADE as a bottom row.
3. I think a bottom R3 looks a little dumb. Not a fan.

I feel like the reasons I gave before were pretty definitive, especially the swapping with sets. It's also a proven sculpting, I am not the only one here that likes it. Many really highly regarded sets have a similar/same sculpt.

Yeah, it's important to keep in mind that these sets are usually always collaborative efforts between the community and the designer, and so sometimes compromises have to be made to keep the set universally satisfying and compatible (and this in turn helps with reaching MQO in some cases!). I think if your idea was implemented, it'd go against the preferences of the majority, not to mention throw off the row profile on a 65% or 75% board.

You kind of just have to roll with what you get and make the best of it! Accommodations are sometimes made; I think LSB is going to add 75% support to this second round (it looks like the Planck/Atomic set might be the pack that will also shoehorn 75% support), but with the first drop, I had to rock a '5' key on row 3 of the 16th column, since there was no compatible key for it.

I would really appreciate it if someone could direct me to some color-accurate pictures of this set.  I bailed on the round 1 drop at the last minute because, after examining the color chip, I thought the alphas were a little too brown for my taste.  I was hoping that seeing the actual product on keyboards would help me make a decision on whether to purchase round 2.  Since round 1 has completed, I've seen a few images of this set, but the colors vary.  In some images, the alphas are off-white.  In other images, the alphas are tan.  I've seen a few images where the alphas look a lot like yellowed ivory.

I know a few other big sets are dropping first, even at 1 a month it should only be a few months away tops. On the meantime I am trying to conjure up the best additional kits. will start posting them when i know a date to ramp up the interest then  :thumb:

So happy to hear there will be a round 2 for this. Love the look of this set and having gotten into mechanical keyboards less than two months ago, I feel like I missed all the awesome looking sets.

Join the club  ;D
Sometimes I'm wondering exactly how I've managed to miss all that cool stuff ..
it's not that I didn't know about the mechanicals, I guess it's just hard to see how deep the rabbit hole goes when looking from the outside.

Hey Everyone! Rolled out a big update with some new kits. The last big kit I am working on is a "funky size" kit, for those 65%/75% keyboards. I hope to include as many options as possible in this. Things like the White Fox/Octogon, Smart68, FC660, etc, will be considerd.

If you have any feedback on existing sets, please let me know! If there is anything you'd like to see, please let me know as well! I am considering adding some blue keys in with the alt. color pack to use instead of the red, let me know if you dig that idea, I need to gauge if that is worth it or not.

Thanks!

The adapter kit already supports the hacker/hhkb layout ;)

Icon mods probably wont happen unless there are a lot of people that want it, but the base kit wont change, so it would be expensive to say the least.

Ill see if any other designers will let me use their molds, because it would make things more expensive than i would want to fund new ones with this set.

I would really appreciate it if someone could direct me to some color-accurate pictures of this set.  I bailed on the round 1 drop at the last minute because, after examining the color chip, I thought the alphas were a little too brown for my taste.  I was hoping that seeing the actual product on keyboards would help me make a decision on whether to purchase round 2.  Since round 1 has completed, I've seen a few images of this set, but the colors vary.  In some images, the alphas are off-white.  In other images, the alphas are tan.  I've seen a few images where the alphas look a lot like yellowed ivory.

Interesting. I'm surprised PMK doesn't (generally) keep the rights to them. I think I remember seeing somewhere that custom molds were $50, which I feel like that's rather low to get a mold made.

I missed jukebox, since Carbon literally pulled/pushed me into this hobby.
But I now have Carbon on my new homemade board, and am waiting for R6 for another board, so why would I possibly need Jukebox on a third board? I only have two hands, people!

I stumbled down this rabbit-hole purely by accident last week just looking for an external to my Macbook Air/replace my Razer Anansi and have spent all my downtime flipping through here and deskthority. I'm looking at a 60% or 68% or so board. IDEALLY The White Fox that I missed on Massdrop (also new to massdrop...).  I have been leaning to the Pok3r or the KBP60, but also eyeing the Varmilo 68 that's on Massdrop now. I'm a writer so I'm not sure if the functionality of the Pok3r would be lost on me.  I do like that it comes with an aluminum base. I'm meh about backlighting. I kind of like it but it's not important. No idea on switches so I just ordered a tester. Also Colemak compatibility (which I'm also new to).

I'm completely new to the mech game, but I'm in for a set.

Now I just need a board to put it on...

What sort of board did you have in mind? Size? Backlighting? Switch type? Bezel? Custom? There are so many options.  :D

I do have a colemak+dvorak set so you should be good there :)

I stumbled down this rabbit-hole purely by accident last week just looking for an external to my Macbook Air/replace my Razer Anansi and have spent all my downtime flipping through here and deskthority. I'm looking at a 60% or 68% or so board. IDEALLY The White Fox that I missed on Massdrop (also new to massdrop...).  I have been leaning to the Pok3r or the KBP60, but also eyeing the Varmilo 68 that's on Massdrop now. I'm a writer so I'm not sure if the functionality of the Pok3r would be lost on me.  I do like that it comes with an aluminum base. I'm meh about backlighting. I kind of like it but it's not important. No idea on switches so I just ordered a tester. Also Colemak compatibility (which I'm also new to).

I kinda lost track of what was happening with the icon mods.  As far as ownership, I'm quite sure a lot of it is already open domain (I found a bunch of cool stuff browsing through charmap).  I bet the modern selectric leader would let you use some of his molds (to save on cost).. but iirc they're only $40 each (I realize that can quickly addup though)

Oh and on another note I'd  personally rather have a full set of Carbon than my White Fox order.... *cough*pm me*cough*

Few updates:

Inquired about using someones Icon Mods for the run, will give more info on that as it develops as a possibility.

For the Non-Standard Adapter kit, I added a few keys to support 75% and 65% layouts. The 1U keys on the left on each row are really to give some layout options for those layouts mentioned. Instead of making specific keys, having these more "generic" terms will allow the keyboards to at least use something in those slots instead of a wrong key entirely.

Also, i forgot to mention that the "ENTER" key has been changed to "RETURN" as I felt it suited the set better.

Please shoot any suggestions you may have my way.

Just my small suggestion: make 7u spacebar as stand alone child deal like all other spacebars in available sizes and Jukebox colors (RED and i guess TM). Not sure but this kit has some keys which could be used by other layouts but with standard spacebar size.

Love how that DT key is looking, but maybe a slightly different font. Idk, it just looks a little plain for some reason.

Also working on some novelties for the ErgoDox thumb cluster.

If they're the 2u (tall) keys, they'll also be able to be used on the += keys on the number pad. Just wanted to point that out.

More or less, adapter kit has a few extra keys, a few have less. Aiming for more buyers this time around though, so hopefully cheaper all around! 80 or less for tkl base I'd imagine

White F5, F6, F7, F8

That would be amazing! Thanks!

Ok, some changes that are going to show up in the renders soon.

No Atomic support. This really raises the price of the 40% kit, and I feel like very few will actually buy this for the atomic, so unfortunately for the good of the majority I will be scaling back that set. A Cream space bar for the planck will be added though.

Novelties will be finalized soon. The DT key is getting a bit of an overhaul, and the ErgoDox 2u thumb cluster will have all new novelties.

Looking at adding a 4th color, probably blue, somewhere in the kit as an extra set. This was something I had toyed with the first time around, though it just never came to fruition.

Render looks great!

At first thought, adding blue as a 4th color seems like a bit too much, but then as I visualize it, I think it could be really really awesome! I'd love to see some renders with a mix of all 4 colors in the way that you envision it.

Hmm... REALLY depends on the shade of blue. Fortunately, shades of blue is something SP is not sparse with.

That Planck pic is timely though, built my Massdrop w/browns yesterday. DSA blanks is soooo 2015.

Would it be possible to provide the colours inverted for the function row, so that somebody can make the function keys all blue or all white?

So the new keys would be:
Blue F1, F2, F3, F4, F9, F10, F11, F12
and White F5, F6, F7, F8

EDIT: Yeah I've already posted this request on a different account (sorry! Forgot I'd posted already, and forgot the other account's password and lost its email)

I can ask the MD guys the numbers. Yeah, personally not my thing either, but if there is interest I can throw one together. A lot of the more obscure kits that may not tip, I will present to SP and let them run them eventually as well.

Yeah i need to see if PMK still has any of the nordic kits. Those were abysmal in sales last time, and if they still have some in the store I probably won't run that kit this time. That ends up just making it more expensive for everyone else.

Here's the problem with that. Granite was uniform profile (DSA) and dye subbed. Not only would the cost of the set rise to pay for new any new molds, I would literally have to have the set be 3-4 times larger than any other ergodox set so far because everyone uses such a different layout on the ergodox. I am putting some novelties into the set still, but legends on a sculpted set for a keyboard like the Dox just doesn't seem to be a good idea. I can see people just wanting this key or that key added indefinitely.

Curious how this would blend together with Nantucket...

Also, seeing the change to a 'return' key interests me greatly. I really dislike 'enter', that key will forever be return in my mind.

Will there be Ergodox set with legends? Pretty please? At least different colours for the the ergodox mods so that they are easy to recognize?

How about at least the default ergodox layout? That should satisfy the beginners on the dox at least. I for one have been using blanks exclusively untill I shifted to the ergodox this month. And now I need legends as the learning curve is pretty steep. Talk about dropping from 80wpm down to 35.

Glad you noticed! yeah, it should have been "return" all along I think, just one of those details i missed the first time around.

Hm, well that would definitely be the start of the labels. I'll see what I can come up with. I can add a few generic keys (hyper, meta, super) along with a few blanks/novelties and see how it comes out. Again my main concern is simply pricing and making it far too expensive. Ill try to come up with a render in a day or two and get some feedback on it though!

Hey got the same request. I am thinking to implement just the default layout as displayed on github. But in my opinion the blank keys should stay too (for custom layouts). Also i think about to make it standalone kit with alphas.

Sry for posting Carbon related stuff in Jukebox' thread, but this is how it supposed to look. There are some double keys on github and i dont know why. I replaced one with super.

Basically i think this is ok and might even cost less than base kit + ergodox kit.

Edit: forgot blanks for tumb cluster.

I would recommend separating out the alphas. Having a complete Planck kit with alphas, a complete ergodox kit with alphas and so on would just make it harder for those of us who have more than one keyboard and want to use it on all of them in turn.

I don't think the Planck &  ErgoDox kits were ever intended to come with alphas. If you take a look at the OP you'll see that these kits only contain the modifiers. So, as it sits, you would get the base set plus any number of these kits.

livingspeedbump was suggesting that keeping the alphas on their own (without TKL mods) would help the people using this set on only a Planck or an ErgoDox, or some other layout that does not needs the base mods. Since I wouldn't be using this set on any strange layouts, I don't mind either way.

Ok, some non-finalized kit changes for people to look over. I will not finalize changes until I see pricing. I detached the alphas from the base kit, and made a TKL/60% with the modifiers. This allows Dox/Planck users to get a better deal. Added default legends to the Dox kit, along with blanks. I WILL NOT add random keys for layout changes to this kit. That would just be a road that would lead to a ridiculously expensive kit, so stock+blanks is the best I can do there. Also going to take out the space bars from Adapter/Color mod kits and sell them separately to help pricing on those.

The Nordic kit WILL NOT RUN. PMK store still has them in stock, and due to the fact that they sell under 10 units, it is just not worth it price wise to run it again.

Yeah, still just finding where to put it. I may do a poll for a few novelties and pick the most popular ones if i have too many  :) Like i said before, I wanted to make sure to include some new novelties each time in replace of some of the old ones.

I am still quite unhappy that there is like no default layout for ergodox. I wish there would exist one. Planck is far easier to make because there are atleast some obvious keys available and they share also the same size. I think community need to define ergodox standard. For example based on ansi layout.

Hey just an idea: you got already flowers but how about vinyl record? Afaik jukeboxes are about vinyl records. Additionaly you can also add music keys like this:

Something along the lines of Granite's Ergodox addon would be nice.

Here's the problem with that. Granite was uniform profile (DSA) and dye subbed. Not only would the cost of the set rise to pay for new any new molds, I would literally have to have the set be 3-4 times larger than any other ergodox set so far because everyone uses such a different layout on the ergodox. I am putting some novelties into the set still, but legends on a sculpted set for a keyboard like the Dox just doesn't seem to be a good idea. I can see people just wanting this key or that key added indefinitely.

Ok here is another one. This time i took kinesis keyboard layout. Its the father of ergodox and so it defines its default layout. Added also some obvious additional keys so everyone can adjust the layout to ansi. I think that's the majority is using. For weirdo layouts there is pmk store which offers blank keys. I appreciate that its free programmable but there must to be a standard to it, else its just unprofessional device.

So the biggest thing I worry about is the fact that it is programmable, and pretty much any user that heavily uses the ErgoDox has probably loaded their own layout onto it, and thus would end up needing the blank kit.

On the other hand, the recent drops have been so successful that many users will be getting their first, and having legends will help them out drastically I bet.

So I'm stuck wondering if blanks+standard layout is best or if just blanks. Now, my final thought would simply be to run with blanks now just to help with overall pricing of the drop, and THEN I can put the set back on PMK again and add kits like the legend dox kit.

Ok here is another one. This time i took kinesis keyboard layout. Its the father of ergodox and so it defines its default layout. Added also some obvious additional keys so everyone can adjust the layout to ansi. I think that's the majority is using. For weirdo layouts there is pmk store which offers blank keys. I appreciate that its free programmable but there must to be a standard to it, else its just unprofessional device.

In this case, i would offer blank kit as separate kit. I am sure most of the users has nearly the same layout.

People who use it at work must guaranty that every other employee can use it too. Every workstation has to be usable. I am speaking just from my experience. At my work a cant use ansi layout, though its far better for programming than ISO DE. Anyway i cant even use my own keyboard because of high security requirements. But thats the rule in every professional sector.

In short this is a "Professional Ergodox kit". I'll rename it.

I am fully wanting a labeled ergodox and a labeled planck kit. Put another way, you can just have 1u blanks as an add on and use symbols for the keys greater than 1u. That way buyers still can have a blank kit with modifiers and dox users that need the labeled keys are already covered.

In addition, the Kinesis Advantage 2 arrives in late Q1 2016. I doubt that they change the whole thing up because it's pretty ingenious, but who knows. On YouTube there's only one video so far a sneak peak of the new cherry function keys:


EDIT: Ah, now I get it we're talking about the Kinesis modifier layout ==> ErgoDox modifier layout.

Anyway, just like @cswanic I'd prefer having the option to purchase blank modifiers and keys. Maybe even 2 different blanks sets for the Planck and Ergodox crowd ((I'm in both camps)).

The Nordic kit WILL NOT RUN. PMK store still has them in stock, and due to the fact that they sell under 10 units, it is just not worth it price wise to run it again.

Awww, oh well.

My apologies if this has already been asked, but will you include a red ISO enter key? And will the new ISO kit include an AltGr key?

Also, is there any other keys/kits that won't be a part of the new drop, that I should get on PMK instead?

isn't the only thing that you need blank 1.75u R4s?

When I saw the initial mockup with legends, I was disappointed because it in no way matched my layout.

The second pitch is much, much better. It covers a lot of the customization options.

I have one of those "weirdo" layouts and the only keys that I couldn't place on my dox are delete and the quote key which I put in the place of the semicolon key because I use it 1,000 times more .. but, with custom options, you won't be able to make everyone happy. (Right now, I have a set of SA alphanumerics and stems for my most modifiers while I wait for PMK to stock blank purple SA keys.)  ;D

But maybe we ought to have a community poll to see who puts what keys where. I still feel like you could pull a lot of Ergodox users from DSA profile with a kit like that if the price is right. The rub with SA keys and ergodox is that you have to spend $70-$80 on a TKL base kit and then drop somewhere between $40 to $50 on a set of blank keys.

So lately I've been thinking about 60% keyboards and pok3rs really seem to be the most common thing around. The poker can remap the caps to fn which it seems a lot of people do. What are the changes of getting some sort of meta key included to accommodate this? Doesn't need to say FN specifically but maybe be blank, or jukebox or a symbol or something. In red or green. :) Or is it expected that people just use the control key in its place no matter the function? :)

By the way, I also wrote on massdrop regarding a backspace/backslash swap option, as seen on the KUL. Which you said you would consider. If I am actually the only guy asking about this definitely do not make the set more expensive on only my behalf. :)

Really looking forward to round 2 :)

Then I looked a bit at the Carbon SA, Danger Zone and Granite. Then I looked a bit at a TKL with Jukebox (https://www.keychatter.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/keychatter_2015-10-14_19-33-58.jpg). I started wondering, if the TKL with Jukebox is so damn pretty, why does the Ergodox render look so, uhm, unexciting?

I think it is the lack of font. The dual color keys creates the charming appeal of Jukebox. Even just the 2u thumb buttons of the Carbon set creates enough colors to keep it exciting. DangerZone more so and same for the Granite.

Does anyone feel the same or just me? Is it possible to spice up a few keys without making them character specific, like for Carbon?

Ah, valid observation. Yeah, I'm finishing up the novelties for it still, it will have a few special keys, notably on the thumb cluster! As an ErgoDox user myself, I won't leave the kit out to dry. Promise  :thumb:

The new novelties will probably be shown when the kit actually launches, there are still a few that are being worked on/added/etc as that is the main new addition this time around, along with the new kits and correct shift keys

I think this comes pretty close to defining a good base set. On top of this a horizontal 1.5u control and fn would be nice. If you want to keep costs down how about making the blank and lettered sets separate in the drop?

Also, still waiting on your ErgoDox review ;)

Yeah Data did a great job with that. Im still tinkering with that and running those ideas by a few other designers/dox users pretty regularly.

I know! I'm finally getting to the 100% comfort level with its capabilities, there is just so much you can do with it. I've put up a few initial reviews, but im still working on the very in depth one to cover how to program it, lighting, lcd screens, etc, etc.  :thumb:

Hey Livingspeedbump, speaking from having keyboards like the planck, the 108-key, and some non standard boards, I would definitely be in for a pack that had row4 and row1 novelites.  Troubledminds, Nantucket, and especially DangerZone really fit the bill (Carbon used it as the number stripe which also was a fresh approach).  It works great for replacing the tired home, end, pg up, pg dn, ins, del, scrl, prtscr, and brk keys (on every tkl), and also for volume keys (on 108-key boards), and also for windows, alt, edit, and ctrl keys (on nonstandard bottom row boards). 

I was just thinking about the McD's keycaps you created awhile back.  Jukebox goes with cars, tv, radio, shakes, burgers and fries.  I'm not trying to suggest a novelty set that would overpower the classic theme of vanilla and mint with the splash of red, but I just wanted to add those interests to your amazing set.  Maybe in lieu of pictures to the same, perhaps one-word or two-word phrases from the era to replace those TKL keys (not changing the traditional labeling but adding a twist for those interested). 

Definitely in for this set when it comes back for a second round.  Great idea too for breaking out the TKL standard kit into separated kits.  I will pickup extra sets of alphas as I did with Carbon because I end up being able to fill more than one board.

Turning in the final renders later today, hopefully no mistakes that need to be addressed and then just logistics before going to drop. So very, very soon now regardless.

I think i have it all worked out so 60%/TKL/Ergodox/Planck users can all cover their boards for less thank $100, some of course cheaper than others. But that was one of my big goals this time around, to set up the kits to cater as evenly as possible to all these different boards. The last time I ran Jukebox, Plancks and Ergodox's were such a minority it wasn't really viable, but thanks to some successful MD drops, there are heaps of users out there, which I love to see  :thumb:

Any way we could get a sneak peek at the new novelties or full workup on non R1 layouts before next week? And, possibility for "return" on 1u for planck/preonic/dox?

Psyched for next week.

RETURN doesnt fit as well as I'd like on a 1U key, so those still say ENTER. Same with 1U saying CAPS LOCK instead of SHIFT LOCK like the rest of the kits.  :confused:

Ah, and on novelties i have added more "text" ones than graphic ones, though there are still a few new graphic ones thanks to Engicoder  ;)

Just personally I love a bit more simplified look, and adding some more vintage themed text mods will work well I think. Hopefully people enjoy them

You're so modest.  Watch there be 2,000 orders by the end of the drop :thumb:

What are the options for ErgoDox users?

I will have a complete ergodox mod set, and the alphas will be their own kit as well so it will hopefully be relatively cheap for dox users, and not require you to buy keys you dont really need :)

What legends will they have, if any?

@livingspeedbump Did you see this?

Also, International kits and Dvorak + Colemak kits WONT be in the drop. Fear not, this is just because they are still available in the PMK store. They hardly sell any units so this will help bring the overall price down a bit for everyone as other sets won't be supplementing MOQ for those sets. Again, one of my main things this time around was making it as affordable as possible for everyone and as many keyboard layouts as possible  :thumb:

Looks like SP is finally catching up on all the orders, for MD to finally re-start this set.

Shall be getting another two complete sets, simply because you can't lose when you hand over your money in Group Buys run by MassDrop.

Only other group I now trust in handing over cash to, is CTRL/ALT.

The way he has the drop structured, it is possible for a greater than normal number of alpha purchases due to having to purchase them separately regardless of keyboard which tips to $24.99 at 750.  That's a bit high on SP's part setting that goal, but \_(ツ)_/

What size is the R3 return on the Planck/Atomic Kit?  I can't tell eyeballing it, and I need a return or enter for my JD45 that I've been having problems sourcing.

Atomic: 2u -- You can tell by the fact that it's exactly the same width as the two 1u keys above.
Planck: 1u

This ran on Massdrop back in May. I suspect no sets will be available until MD does another Bazzar sale or round 3 happens. A few sets have already hit /r/mechmarket though, so you might want to give that a shot.

As far as I know they will have all/most of them available.

I will also be letting PMK handle a full run/restock of the set as well sooner than later.
