The gmk rendering, as always, is misleading.... While on my phone I thought that this was about a black on white addon. I would modify the title to include the "classic beige" or "OG beige" wording.

The title of the post has the word BEIGE in it. The main post explicitly says:

It will work with basically any beige set you've seen (GMK, OG Cherry, etc.). It's easier to say "if it isn't L9 alphas, then it won't be compatible".

What else do you need (aside from learning to read the main post)?

just shut up

Thought I'll give a post 24 hour update. I have no idea if it's a lot, but there were 120 responses.

81% would like the R2 1.5u pipe key with ₩, so I will get it added to the kit. I'll also ask about the possibilities of added a R1 1u version too.

61% said no to the punctuation and numbers. I'm fine with that - It would raise the kit price probably by 80%, and open it up to not that many more people (who knows how many of the 61% would join if they were added too).

I'll start speaking to vendors too. If anyone has recommendations, let me know! I will definitely be looking for US, EU, and Asia.

If I purchase a UD_40 and put GMK 9009 keycaps on it, then it won't really be an ode to Koreans without this kit.

The ability to order a full set of alphas OR just the small kit would be AWESOME because then I could do crazy things like combine with GMK-200 for full keebs without any waste.

I definitely see both sides, but for every 4 of you guys that want the full alphas, there's 6 that prefer just alphas. It's hard to make everyone happy :'(

I think some renders with popular sets to match it with might be good

To be completely honest, I don't want to invest any money into this IC. I think for custom colors & combinations it makes sense, but everyone knows the color, and everyone can look at Burgundy for the actual doubleshots.

Response has been very strong so I don't think they're needed anyway. :)
Samples are not likely to be needed. It is a reference color already produced by GMK. And it is a guaranteed color because it is the color that everyone saw directly.

I wonder if GMK will eat some of the new legend costs if they will see future use (like the Japanese legends have) instead if being a one and done

They already have the moulds for these. They had them made for Burgundy R2.

If it's a mold they think is useful to have, they pay for it (I think) and make it free to use for anyone.

Not sure how I missed that information as I'm sure it was explicitly stated above.

Thats good news though, with any luck this set will be available at a competitive price and may help pave the way for more small sublegend kits in the future.

It's a good idea to use big vendors, because you can save on shipping buying more items that you need, combining orders.

I wonder if gmmk (glorious modular etc) or SPRIT would be interested in this. And a EU proxy is absolutely necessary http://mechboards.co.uk ?)

Hi guys,

GMK got back to me about the |\₩ keys, and I'll be adding both the R2 1.5u and the R1 1u. Please see the revised kit below:



This is the final kit.

I have found two vendors in NA and EU to run this too. I'm currently looking for a Asia/KR proxy, so once that has been found, I'm sure I'll be able to announce who the NA/EU vendors are :thumb:

For Korea, I recommend hitting up cocobrais, who ran the GMK Burgundy R1 and R2 buys and also could represent this kit on kbdlab.
