[IC] GMK White on Black and Magenta Mod Pack [LIVE!]

GMK White on Black and Magenta Mod Pack

We're live!

http://www.kbdist.com/gmk-originative

General idea and thought process:

Initially I really loved the look of Bunnylake's 365 mini with OG Dyesubs and GMK Cyan accents, pictures here, and wanted to adopt that style to my favourite colourway.

Since there are a lot of OG Cherry WoB sets out there I wanted to make this set unique and offer layout, and potentially legend, options that aren't available in OG sets. This is why I opted for HHKB and 65%/75% layouts to be included over some others.

Since writing this I've had a change or heart and rather than having a cheapish set that accommodated a few unique layouts I've decided to have this set support as many layouts as possible and take advantage of new moulds.

Supported layouts:

- ANSI and ISO Standards (60%, TKL, Full-sized)
- Winkeyless
- Full R5 alt bottom row
- HHKB
- 65%/75%
- 1800
- 6u Spacebar
- Diamond windows replacement keys
- Bumped and Scooped homing keys

Pricing and availability:

White on Black: Will update soon.
Magenta Mod Pack: ~$46-48

Group buy will start sometime between the 2nd and 5th of September!

Update log:

31/5: Mostly finalised renders.
11/6: Distributor found.
14/6: "Finalised" Renders.
28/6: Custom packaging.
30/7: Magenta pricing.
9/8: WoB updated.

Can we request some key changes?

Maybe a poll on using the older Windows logo?

Beautiful. Finally, another WoB IC that'll hopefully be easier to obtain, and love the pink/magenta accents.
However, the Caps Lock icon-only legend looks out of place with the rest of the mods. And I second the Win95 logo.  :thumb:

I would LOVE to see the caps lock changed to text "Caps Lock" to match the rest of the set..
nevermind can't read. Looking forward to this, I may buy it.. I already have OG WoB , and with the mod pack I may not end up needing, but we'll see

Simple and beautiful.

Consider me in whenever you start this GB. Have been looking for GMK/Cherry White on Black for a while now, and the Magenta accents are perfect.

I didn't really have time to put something really comprehensive together so hopefully this will do for now.

EDIT: It seems like "Caps Lock" will be in for sure

Magenta was an interesting choice, but I can see it working really well on some 60% boards.

I'm only interested in magenta Esc and Enter but I guess they can't be split from the set.

I didn't read anything in the thread so far but wanted to add that in previous discussion I've been a part of with GMK, white on black sets were the cheapest and easiest to get done as they are a part of the normal production cycle, perhaps I should qualify and say 'were' at the time.

It might be worthwhile to have a basic white on black base set with a separate modifier pack.

I feel like with the icon mod pack that's running in WoB and the easy availability of og WoB sets would make this kind of redundant.
I'd much rather see just a magenta mod pack with the same keys as billnye's bluegaloo

I've just sent a message to GMK requesting a few changes, which are as follows:

- "Caps Lock" instead of the Down Arrow Icon on both caps lock keys.
- Windows 95 style instead of windows 8 style for windows and menu keys.
- Icon + Text instead of Icon only for 1.25u Shift
- Add an MG1 ISO Enter

As well as a rough price estimate, they were very quick to get back to me last time I requested changes so hopefully that'll be the case again :thumb:.

Going forward I think we have a few options:

- Remove magenta keys and just go with a straight White on Black set.
- Remove magenta keys and build a seperate magenta mod set.
- Leave as is with a small amount of magenta in the WoB set.
- Choose a different accent colour, I picked magenta not only because it looks awesome but also because there hasn't been a magenta mod pack AFAIK, but I'm happy to change it if that's what the majority wants.

Please let me know what you'd like to see.

Removing magenta would be a poor choice mostly because I'm really digging it. ;)
Someone else mentioned buying just the magenta. Maybe get a small mod pack as a child deal?

I know there is an on-going WoB GB in China and I would expect the same GB to take orders on GH as well in a few days. Personally as someone who already has 4 sets of NIB WoB sets from various 8113 and 7000, I only care about the magenta sets and 1.5x keys.

I think that's the most likely option, even if it's a small pack I'd love to get some magenta in there.

I was unaware of that, thanks for the head up!

Good luck!! i could not gauge the interest on WOB pricisely. 3 WoB of GMK is on-going or incoming, they split my wallet.
However, i support you and your idea on woving magenta into WoB
i expect i could not just say"good luck " to you but"congratulations"

Do you mean the Spanish side printing or magenta/cyan legends on black caps? I don't mind the idea of pink on black caps, I was considering a pink on black esc as the extra key.

Also thank you to everyone for the feedback! I'm hoping that GMK will get back to me today with the updated render, though it's probably wishful thinking, so we can move forward and forget about the down arrow :p.

Color legends on black key caps, for example, on modifiers, that could make the set attractive but still kept the traditional WoB alphas.

It's an interesting idea but it doesn't fit with what I wanted this set to be about, which was offering unique layout options in WoB, and the magenta caps was an idea to spruce it up a bit.

Also based on the feedback I've received so far I think a seperate magenta mod pack, something small, will be offered as well as WoB instead of part of it. Something to this effect could be looked into here.

"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But that’s incorrect. It’s in HHKB’s slogan, but when America’s cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

Would love to see A-profile (row 5) since it can only be found on the IMMENSELY rare G81-3000HB_ keyboards. I don't know how popular this is though.

I actually have some questions regarding R5s price, compatibility and layout choices, if you wouldn't mind helping me with them. I'll pm you in a bit.

No magenta ISO return?

FOR SHAME

I've just sent a message to GMK requesting a few changes, which are as follows:

- "Caps Lock" instead of the Down Arrow Icon on both caps lock keys.
- Windows 95 style instead of windows 8 style for windows and menu keys.
- Icon + Text instead of Icon only for 1.25u Shift
- Add an MG1 ISO Enter

As well as a rough price estimate, they were very quick to get back to me last time I requested changes so hopefully that'll be the case again :thumb:.

Going forward I think we have a few options:

- Remove magenta keys and just go with a straight White on Black set.
- Remove magenta keys and build a seperate magenta mod set.
- Leave as is with a small amount of magenta in the WoB set.
- Choose a different accent colour, I picked magenta not only because it looks awesome but also because there hasn't been a magenta mod pack AFAIK, but I'm happy to change it if that's what the majority wants.

Please let me know what you'd like to see.

I did not even check the colour codes.

But thanks :)

Whatever you do with R5. Do it like classic retro keyset, and don't do it like TA drop.

Win95 instead of blanks right?

Nah. That's the least of problem. The real problem is that I don't think GMK has 1.25u r5 mould, which means you must provide 2 sets bottom rows, 1 with standard r4 bottom rows, and one with WKL r5 bottom rows

Oh right, I'm currently trying to figure out the best course of action here, but my thinking is that at very minimum there will be TKL keys in both R4 and R5.

I was hoping that you would also provide r5 2u 0, 1u del, and enter keys tho.

I think just pass the r5 bottom row because I just found out that gmk only made a r4 spacebar so it would be akward to use r5

It's definitely an option, it just depends on price. As i mention, if we include R5, then the minimum that will be included would be TKL in both 4 and 5.
