  • Pink
  • baby blue
  • light green
  • light pink
  • snow white
  • coffee
  • rose gold
  • orange
  • bright brass

These are the colors we're considering.

would rose gold, light pink, pink be a bit similar? Also you might want to add some more mainstream colors in like black and silver.. given I want a custom color my self but I just know some people prefer black and silver.

The first pink was a typo. There will be only one light pink. We'll compare the color samples between light pink and rose gold.

Mainstream colors are a lot. There is always a trade-off between new colors and mainstream colors. Otherwise we need to deal with too many colors for limited orders. It's really a hard decision for me on deciding the colors. As for silver and black, I prefer to choose black. The black Orange TKL looks nice imo.

just my 2 cents and it won't be known until you get the samples but.. might drop light pink or the rose gold cause I got a feeling there going to be very close in color.. samples will tell. Dang I wonder what a Orange would look like in Orange with black weight!!!

I want in on this.  I doesn't look like anything that I currently own.  Design is different and color choice as well.

Hey can you give us a idea of price then? Sounds like we are with in a week of release.. at this point. I know personally on the fence between this and the TKL CTRL from Massdrop. I gotta say if this is affordable I prefer it over the CTRL but if its going to be like 350-500 for the 75% keyboard Only ((Not interested in the keypad)) then I stick with the CTRL. I just can't make that big of a investment/leap at this time. I could most likely do 250ish.

I think it's posted in this thread somewhere but the TKL orange was like $280 base.

all aluminum version of Orange75 will be $270 with a vendor's backing. It's just 10 bucks less than Orange TKL but there's already a cost from the vendor included in the price.

shipping is not included in the price. International shipping will be charge separately in case some people don't read or don't do the math.

Thanks Senter.. so going to say 350ish out the door! which is doable I have a influx of money coming in sometime next month I can use! I cancel the CTRL and get this instead. I prefer another 75 over the TKL

I don't think so for this color. Perhaps black is better for Abyss.

Black was one of my favorite colors for Orange TKL.

We're using the "Cherry+costar stabilizer" cutouts on swillkb. The cutouts support cherry pcb mount, cherry plate mount, and costar mount. Cherry plate mount won't fit very well.

I second removing the "FOX" branding on the Numpad, it's a quite edgy font that clashes with the cute aesthetic of the rest of the Numpad.

I generally hate all keycaps. Keycaps are for poofs. Real men touchtype on stems. Non-functional artisans are awesome, I use them for the ESC key ... escape is for cowards anyways, real men go frontal assault.

Yes!

I'd want a full row of keys on the top of the numpad instead of just a single key, but realize that this would affect the design a lot.

Sure. No combo bull**** here.

60%/65% is not in our plan yet. There are a lot of good options out there including M60A, Zephyr, M0110, E6V2.

Here are the supported plate layout and PCB layout. The prototypes still need some revisions.

The default plate won't support all the layouts the PCB can provide (e.g. 7u spacebar).

The plate file will be open-sourced to those who want 7u spacebar.

We're still discussing with our vendor about the pricing.

Brass version is about twice more expensive than all alu version. However, shipping cost needs to be considered as well.
