It's a small detail to add ergo users some incentive to get that kit, as it isn't particularly small compared to the spacebars one.

GMK has confirmed that Jamón samples have arrived. According to them, both reds should be spot on with the color codes provided and will be shipped tomorrow.

If everything goes well, we should have them before the group buy starts.

Sorry if I missed this but I can't seem to find when GB is planned to start, when is the planned start date?

Here is a [Flickr Album](https://www.flickr.com/photos/142001978@N05/albums/72157678049786838) with some pics of GMK Jamón color samples.

The samples are spot on with the color codes provided and compared to the renders, the samples have more saturation, this is specially noticeable with the modifiers.

As I commented back in December, with the new render setup I'm getting less saturated colors, now that I have decent pictures I can use for reference, I'll tweak all the drop page renders and replace them with new more accurate ones.

For reference: this is how the Core is at the moment:



And this old render has red modifiers which are close to the samples:




Comparisson with standard GMK Colors:

GMK Jamón Samples by zambumon

Before having samples I was having doubts on wether we should be using P3 and R01 or request custom colors. While the differences are subtle, they are noticeable enough for me to select in both cases custom colors for this set. Here is why:

- Alphas: 020 30 48 vs R01: the differences are subtle, I just like the custom color more, it's more vibrant.
- Modifiers: 030 40 60 vs P3: P3 was too "orangy", the custom color we are going for is an insanely good red.

The difference in P3 to custom color is considerable, I dont notice that much difference in R01 and its couterpart (may be its just me), but the custom colour combination looks much better. Good call on P3. Looking fwd to this drop. My wallet has been crying since amazing drops from q3 2018, but this and Samurai Blue and no more GMK for me.

The difference with R01 and the custom color is more noticeable IRL, and as you said, it has a better match with the mods. Since we have both colors, and we know how accurate GMK is, it shouldn't be an issue to use this custom one.

Edit: talk about Ñ, is there a estimated price point for it ? I do hope it'll not be as expensive as other addon kits like Novelties as it's just a normal key being printed 25 times but i could be wrong, really hope it's affordable as i'll be getting a ton of them!

Updating OP with new renders and examples:



Core
Jamón is built around its Core kit, which is the starting point for everyone. With just 116 keys, it provides coverage for most keyboards ranging from 60% to TKL form factors, including those with a WKL bottom row, split backspace, or stepped caps lock.



Numpad
The numpad extension kits adds layout support for 1800, 96-key, and full-sized keyboards. An accent Enter key and extra compatibility keys have been included.



UK ISO
A small extension kit that adds UK layout support for international layouts. The kit comes with two ISO Enter accent keys, and an extra R1 1.00U `¬ key for color symmetry purposes.



Forties & Split
The Forties & Split kit was designed with two purposes. The first one is to provide layout support for ortholinear and other 40% keyboards, such as Planck, Vortex Core, or Percebe.
The second one is to add all the necessary keys, including a second B that many of them use, for ergonomic and split keyboards.



Spacebars
The spacebar kit provides a set of accent 2.00U, 2.25U, 2.75U, 6.25U and 7.00U spacebars. Additionally, it extends Jamón’s layout compatibility by including two 6.00U spacebars (one with a center stem and another with an off-center one) so you could cover an Uniqey C70, and Cherry G80-1800 boards.



Jamonelties
A novelty kit with a set of accent arrows, Esc, and Enter keys, a R3 Ñ with ANSI sublegends, and two Jamón related custom keycaps. The kit also comes with four F-Row bacon strips, eggs, and bottom row bacon modifiers.



Pata Negra
Pata Negra is a term commonly used to refer to high quality cured ham from black Iberian pigs. This novelty kit offers an alternative set of dark accent keys and three novelties (acorn, pig, and jamón).



Eñe Survival Kit
A set of 25 doubleshot Ñ keys, from R1 to R4, scooped key included, so you’ll never run out of them.

They were considered, and a part of the initial December 2018 update. However, they were removed with the January update. Otherwise we wouldn't get the pricing we got, and every penny count when you want to set up a set with multiple extension kits.

I like these over R02 (the color used for Burgundy). The custom color we are going with, while its difference is very subtle, it matches better with the mods than R02. I'm super excited to see the final product.

Even better, I miscounted the columns. Two Eñe kits might actually be the cheapest one could have a GMK full ortho planck, ever. And the profile would be r1-r4, and not r2-r4r4 like otherwise, interesting!
Will still go for the Pata negra + forties for "flavor" (and 2u spacebar). The set looks amazing, thanks!
