[GB] GMK Denim
« on: Fri, 07 June 2019, 10:36:09 »
Hello everyone and welcome to GMK Denim GB!

As the name states GMK Denim features Denim theme which explains the colorway. Also if i think about Denim - then Jeans is the first thing which comes into my mind. I personally have never seen Jeans without leather patches and manufacturers logotypes. Thus GMK Denim does feature leather patch accent keys with logotypes of very well known and iconic brands (GMK and Cherry) related to our hobby.

So far GMK Denim offers only one base kit which is capable to cover most basic layouts.

The group buy for GMK Denim is hosted on Originativeco.com and the price is 129$ for the base kit  ^-^

Forgot to mention that everyone who joins the GB is also participating in a raffle for an artisan in denim related colors. At this moment I can not disclosure the information about the artisan maker but the maker is very prominent in this community. So i wish everyone good luck ;)

ne proxy avail?

Unfortunately not. Usually Originativco handles all the orders worldwide. If you want to reduce shipping costs, then probably it would be wise to team up with some EU people. Tho i don't really know if shipping is going to be cheaper if you make a bulk order.

I appreciate your support guys  ^-^

This set looks amazing! I bought this for the U-80 Lake I ordered  ;D

any idea on a possible shipping date? rough estimate? Fairly new to this community and can't seem to figure out exactly how long it takes from GB open to package arriving at your doorstep.

GMK production time is around 16 weeks currently. So I would say within 4-5 months from now. 3-4 if OCO already placed the order.

I don't know how much it costs for companies/shops with their bulk orders but few weeks ago i've send some modified switches to Belgium and DHL charged me 17 euros (including insurance + tracking number) for a fairly small parcel.

Hello and thanks for support ;)  :thumb:

As Oblotzky mentioned the approximate and avarage wait time would be 4-5 months. Tho under specific conditions it might take less or more time but you should not worry about it. If this GB concludes successfully then you are guaranteed to get your items because Originativeco is a reliable vendor. ;)

Today was "bill paying" day, and I found I had room enough afterwards to buy this set.  Huzzah!

There is a particular keyboard build I have in mind and I'm thinking I may end up mixing and matching some keys from this set with GMK Eclipse keys. 
Does that make me a bad person?  Time will tell how that build turns out.

Praise be 👌 lovely set! Reason why I didn't want to order from oco is shipping + import fees, this is much better!

I'd like to introduce current GMK Denim tray design.

I hope you appreciate the "used" look. The design was done by Ryan (/u/quaddepo) ;)

By the way the pricing for GMK Denim was lowered to 125 Euros on MyKeyboard.eu  :)

Is the tray a printed photo?  It would be truly awesome if it’s made out of actual denim.

Yes its a printed photo. Tho i wish it was real denim with leather patches which would be epic... but would be also expensive.  :))

So far not. I will update this thread once i get reliable info on that ;)

Oh Chinese customers only? Well i missed that detail probably.

I don't have current order numbers but two weeks ago Originative alone had around 90 orders. I guess there will be around 150 orders in total by the end of the GB. GMK Denim is going to happen anyway. I got already in touch with GMK and we are working on the details for production. I submitted RAL color codes already and i hope i will receive the samples in few weeks. I will share the samples pictures here.

Thanks for giving it a shot!  I'm sure the extension will bring in other additional orders as well.  And it aligns with the end dates at other vendors  ;D

There was no ETA given like Drop is doing for example in the Detail description. But it will be the same typical GMK lead time which varies between 4 and 6 months - since the order has been placed. I am still waiting for the color samples. Once i get those i will share them here ;)

So i got the color samples today. Honestly i've expected struggle in this part of project because the set introduces 4 new colors and i expected several tries to match the colors. But seeing the samples in front of me - i do think GMK hit it pretty well. I'd like to see samples in the evening. The deep red color is definitely my favorite.

I've tried my best with taking a picture but the photo does not do the justice compared to how it looks in person.

Very cool, T0mb3ry!
Thank you for the updates.  Those samples are looking very promising.  I know how difficult it can be to accurately capture color as we see it in person, but I really like what I’m seeing here.  :thumb:

I could see this being one of those sleeper hits that people regret not getting in on when they had the chance.  ;)

T0mb3ry, those colors look great. How far off is the denim medium blue from the eclipse mods?
Top are Denim. Bottom are Eclipse.


Edit: the photo was taken with my phone. Just like my camera it takes photos at least one stop darker.

My pleasure.  ;)

That blue for alphas (i call it the dove blue) along with the red color are my favorites. The beige is also my top choice but it is from carbon.
Anyway i am really excited and i can't wait to see the end product.

Thanks T0mb3ry! They’re close but the denim blue really is jeans color. Trying to mentally calibrate to N9 and carbon beige. The eclipse starlight blue accent is great.

Samples on some jeans just for testing. Keep in mind denim hue is always different and those jeans are not the reference.

Just got the new sample for mod base color (the dark blue sample). I was previously not happy with the first sample (it was too dark imo) so i got the second. All other colors are already approved.

I am pretty happy with the second sample and most probably i will give it the approval which means Denim may go into production after that.

Oh shoot any chance of extras on the base kit (I'm in the US)? I somehow missed this thread entirely when I only had time to check GH once a week.

You can still buy one but not at the GB price anymore.

Renders are approximate representation and should not be trusted in general - because renders are basically direct light (can even have glow effects which can't be done with real items) and real item are only light reflection. So people should keep that always in mind. But anyway yeah i wanted the mods to be smoky like in the renders  ;D

I dont think it ships in December. But next Year definitely. I have still to aprove the last sample and then probably the manufacturing will begin.

I feel like it looks lighter due to the different lighting.  Are you able to do a comparison under the same lighting?

What do you mean with lighter? In my previous post I wrote about the first mod sample being too dark and that's why this one is lighter. Also I made two photos with different stops.

I already compared the two samples under day light and I am pretty happy with the second sample. 99% it's going like this into production.

Are there any updates on this? Somehow the set disappeared from originative.io site, although it was available there for quite some time after GB was already over.

Not sure why its not available at the store anymore. Tho GMK Denim will be shipped (if everything goes well) in January. It is right now in the production phase.

Thanks for the update.
BTW, GMK Denim is back on the site (originative.io). Their explanation was that it was removed for Black Friday timeframe.

The sets should be shipped this month to the vendors. So the shipment to the customers should happen by the end of this month or in February.

For the info.

GMK encountered some technical issues which will be definitely resolved as they did always in the past. Thus the delivery of GMK Denim is delayed :/

Just got GMK Denim production samples. From my first observation it seems like everything is alright. Here are some photos.
In my opinion GMK Denim looks in person better than on these photos. I only sharpened the photos and throttled the exposure by 0.21 down. Otherwise the colors are not touched and i used automatic white balance. Processed with Capture One.

I’m tracking my shipment. Should have mine in hand Saturday, if all proceeds accordingly.

Oh good to hear they've shipped. I'll get it from the extras then. Thanks.
