[GB] ePBT SimpleJA - In Production
« on: Fri, 02 August 2019, 07:13:30 »

SimpleJA

Status: GB closed; awaiting production
Original listing page here.


SimpleJA attempts to recreate the vintage "cross-positioned" legends which were common on many vintage Japanese keyboards.

Many hours of research were conducted to create legends that are as genuine to the originals as possible.

Historically used legends from vintage boards were implemented wherever possible; those that did not exist were crafted carefully to match the others.




Kits




Base Kit - $75
Enough keys to fill most form factors below TKL size.

Spacebars Kit - $10
1x 6U Convex
2x 3U Convex
1x 2.75U Convex
1x 2.25U Convex
1x 2U Convex
2x 1.5U Convex
2x 1U

Numpad Kit - $12
Keys to fill a numpad, whether regular, all-1U, or part of a 1800 layout.
The order of the 1U modifiers are based on the style found on the NEC PC-8801 and PC-9801 series.

Ortho Kit - $12
Many 1U keys which can help fill ortholinear and smaller ergonomic boards.

Function Kit - $10
Includes both a vertical M1-M10 cluster for XT/AT inspired layouts, as well as a F13-F24 cluster for 122-key inspired battleships.


Timeline

GB will be open for 1 month (Until 09/02/2019). Projected manufacturing time following GB is between 45 to 60 days.

Sorry if this is answered elsewhere, but are the homing key options in the base kit 'scooped with bar' and 'no scoop or bar'?

Most likely EnjoyPBT's default: Scooped and barred.

Yep, either the typical scoop+bar or no homing whatsoever.

Also, this set has reached MOQ.

Did ePBT ever make those non scooped homing keys (originally for Kuro/Shiro)? I know its probably too late to change anything, but if could be worth looking into

Just in case, this is the last day to pick up a set (depending on timezone).

Estimated production time is between 45 to 60 days, although this may vary depending on production quantity and such.

The GB has closed. 250 sets sold; far more than the 100 MOQ I was expecting to barely pass. Thank you for the support!

Usually a few more sets are produced than ordered, so there may be extras in the end. At this point, it's all in ePBT and KBDfans' hands.

Thank you for your answer.
I'll try to keep an eye on kbdfan shop to grab a set.
