[GB] GMK 9009 R3
« on: Sun, 01 September 2019, 04:07:13 »
Hello everybody!

The time has come to relaunch one of the greatest classics in this hobby, GMK 9009! When Dixie and I launched the GB for GMK 9009 R2 back in 2017, it broke records. 2 years and a lot of rerun requests later, we figured the time had come to go back to our roots.



Vendor links

GMK 9009 is priced at high MOQs with no price drops, meaning it'll be cheap for you from day 1! It'll be sold by these amazing vendors.


Design

Inspiration



As some of you may know GMK 9009 is inspired by the Cherry board designed for Reuters. This board featured the now-famous combination of classic beige with some muted, pastel accents. Over the years this colourway has gained a lot of popularity in this hobby for its classic looks and its great versatility. It really is hard to find a case colour that doesn’t go well with this set. GMK 9009 R3, of course, keeps those timeless looks and adds some new features to it.

Updates



9009 R3 adds some features previous rounds haven't had. Most notably, a R5 bottom row. This bottom row creates a nicer and more full sculpt which gives the pleasant vintage aesthetic 9009 is all about. We've also added a lot of compatibility and fixed some legends, all of which is described in detail below.

Kit design

Standard



This kit supports all the most popular custom keyboard layouts from standard TKLs to 65%, WKL bottom rows, HHKBs and more.

Obscure



The obscure kit adds support for a wide variety of 40% keyboards, including ortholinear ones. Included are the necessary modifiers, but also spacebars. This kit also includes a second b key for split keyboards.

Numbers



The number kits adds support for boards including a numpad, like a full-size 104 or 1800.

Addition



The addition kit adds keys for an OSX focussed bottom row, 60%s with arrows through the 2u shift, 660 layouts with the extra 2.25u shift, full ISO UK support and some options for different legends in the 65% and caps lock area.

Modern



Want to add a modern look to your set? Or maybe you’re just a fan of the uniform look having only icons on the modifiers gives you? Then this kit is for you! It features icon modifiers for all of the bottom row, escape and 1.75 control while also adding a more modern interpretation of the tab key and caps lock. This kit features a more modern R4 bottom row.

Aesthetic



This kit is made for those of you who want to add a splash of colour to your boards, whether that is with coloured spacebars or with an indicator LED under your lock keys.

Norde



This kit adds compatibility for ISO NO, SE, FL, DK, DE layouts.

Addons

Deskmats
We're offering 2 beautiful deskmats designs by Dixiemech, inspired by GMK 9009. There is a more classic and subdued version and a more modern and colourful one. Both will be available through all proxies.





RAMA caps

In collaboration with RAMA and Dixiemech, we're proud to bring you these exclusive swirl keycaps. They're made out of silicone and feature a swirl pattern with 9009 colours which will be unique to every cap.







Reworked legends



Modifiers




Dixie and I have been working on cleaning up the mod legends for GMK for a long time now. Cherry legends have some weird inconsistent alignments, 
if you use icon mods with bottom row text mods like R2 9009 you will notice that the Tab, Enter, Backspace and bottom row legends are left-centred aligned. However, the Shift and Caps Lock legends are top-left aligned. Same outcome if you use all icon mods, like in GMK Modern Dolch. This is especially annoying when you use a 1.75u shift with an fn key next to it since one legend will be top-aligned and the other centred.
Because of this, we have decided to make new legends to create a more uniform look among the modifier keys.

 We also have taken the above changes and applied them to the arrows, to continue to make everything as consistent as possible across your keyboard.



40’s / Ortho Enter Awkward Arrows



If you compare the Enter arrow on a full-sized enter and the smaller sized Enters, you will notice the smaller keys are a little awkward. The vertical line on the enter icon, goes almost all the way to the top edge of the surface of the cap, unlike its full-sized counterpart. We are going to fix these legends to be more proportional when sized down compared to the full-sized.

pricing at mykeyboard again shows my why i don‘t like splitting of numpad and iso enter support - rocket sells for 135€ with most probably much less selling kits.

Voyage with numpad for 124 €


Good luck with GB  :thumb: , still a month for me to think if its still worth it - as I really like the colorway - but with cheap from day 1, maybe I expected too much

I bought base kit and additional, as I need full UK ISO.
It is very cheap for base kit, additionals not so much, but if you need to have them, you need to buy it:)
If you are just after ISO enter, then I could sell you one form the banch.

I'm not sure about this... it means that I can't mix this set with OG or existing ones because the legends are ALL aligned differently?  :confused:

For a full ISO set I have to pay about 200 EUR, when WOB on massdrop cost 99 USD just a couple of months ago?

The 9009 R2 Ortho Kit had the bottom-left Fn key that's missing from the 9009 R3 Obscure Kit. This pic is an example: https://www.reddit.com/r/olkb/comments/74j5yw/gmk_9009_planck/

Tbh, I was hoping ortho users would have given enough feedback during the IC stage so that the Obscure Kit would have gone more in the direction the flexibility provided by the previous 9009 R2 Ortho Kit: https://i.imgur.com/2t2XSRQ.jpg

Personally, I would have been fine with just 2x2u space keys, since even though it's not the default Planck layout, it is the Planck layout that I prefer. But that's not part of this Obscure kit either. If minimal level of compatibility is the goal here, then fine, I can understand leaving a 2nd 2u R4C key out.

As it is, the Obscure Kit is kind of incomplete without that R5 Fn key.

I don't have any personal experience with the board but it looks like it has a standard 6.25u bottom row, so yes it'll work!

Please see my reply to your post in the IC thread about the Fn key. The 2x2u is indeed not a supported Planck layout, so it's a small niche of a small niche.

You're right, we wanted to add this back when it was suggested but vendors ended up with kit design renders missing that key. I've updated it and notified them of the mistake. All people who ordered the kit before this will obviously also get the 1.25u shift. Sorry about this, shouldn't have happened. And thanks for pointing it out!

They posted on IG that standard kit hit MOQ on the first day. The little tracking slider says 150 on their site. 150 does seem low for base.

150 is the "production MOQ" from GMK, however the Standard kit is priced at 500 MOQ so that's the "vendor MOQ"

Are all the blank white keycaps in the Obscure kit convex?

They are all convex except for the 175u keys

GMK now has tooling for convex 1.75u and 1.25u R4.  But that might not matter for this kit.

Shift keys go in pairs, arrows are full sets. There is no reason to mix and match them, if you will have a full set anyway. Nonsense argument. Your money your call, but your argument is totally flaw.

9009 is stock GMK colors, even the accents (3B/3C).  So, I'd say pretty darn good.

The Modern kit doesn't use R5, as stated in OP:
Modern
Want to add a modern look to your set? Or maybe you’re just a fan of the uniform look having only icons on the modifiers gives you? Then this kit is for you! It features icon modifiers for all of the bottom row, escape and 1.75 control while also adding a more modern interpretation of the tab key and caps lock. This kit features a more modern R4 bottom row.

I have GMK Nord and Phosphorus as fallback for NorDe, but if this set does not make MOQ, I am not sure if it is possible at all... GMK should lower the MOQ to 50 at least, they could sell 50+ base and addition kits (my humble Milchmädchenrechnung), so at the and of the day they have their profit and we would have our NorDe kits.

Quickly trying to remember what I've learnt in secondary school German language lessons - Milchmädchenrechnung - milch is milk, Madchen is girl, right? Rechnung is counting or calculation.
So Milchmädchenrechnung is calculation of milk girl? Milky girl?! Milky milky!!  :)

Indeed, this literally translates to something as "milk maid calculation", it is based on an old tale about a milk transporting girl who already thinks about what she could by from the price of the milk before she sells it, eventually spilling it on the way to the market. It translates to "calculation based on naive assumptions", such as in my case: if GMK would lower NorDe kit MOQ, more people would buy other kits (would they?), what would compensate for the lower MOQ (would it compensate the effort?).

Strong disagree. People can just buy German OG doubleshots and get the same for way less than half the price. Beige Norde sets are kinda cutting off 50% of the buyers. And at 188€ before shipping and without numpad this isn't the most appealing set in regard of pricing either. Also quite a few people who spend money onto these sets already have one from the last round.

I can see you point. But DE does not cover all Norde layouts. I have one DE set, that I bought for few bucks, but it misses 5 or 6 keys for SW. It is not a bad compromise though, but it is not the same as having the correct legends in new caps. But at the end you may be right for many users that only needs DE, but for the rest of us that need other Norde legends, this international kits are the only true real options.

GMK should lower the MOQ to 50 at least, they could sell 50+ base and addition kits (my humble Milchmädchenrechnung), so at the and of the day they have their profit and we would have our NorDe kits.

If 9009's Norde set would not reach MoQ is very unlikely that any other set's Norde would. Beige is pretty common, thus, if any Norde may reach MoQ is this one.

Strong disagree. People can just buy German OG doubleshots and get the same for way less than half the price. Beige Norde sets are kinda cutting off 50% of the buyers. And at 188€ before shipping and without numpad this isn't the most appealing set in regard of pricing either. Also quite a few people who spend money onto these sets already have one from the last round.


I can see you point. But DE does not cover all Norde layouts. I have one DE set, that I bought for few bucks, but it misses 5 or 6 keys for SW. It is not a bad compromise though, but it is not the same as having the correct legends in new caps. But at the end you may be right for many users that only needs DE, but for the rest of us that need other Norde legends, this international kits are the only true real options.

That's obviously true. It's pretty much the only option for Nordic people cause OG sets are rare. The population of these countries is probably less than half of what the German-speaking population is so these kits will always have a smaller group of interested people which makes it quite a bit harder to reach moq than for other popular colourways.

Is someone getting the Addition kit that does not have any use for the stepped control key willing to part with it? Please let me know, I would be very happy to get four of them. Also the 1.25 shift key in the same set interests me.

I ordered Additional kit but won't be using all caps - if you want ISO enter, green one, I will be selling it once I get all in.
I'm sure other people who orders it won't be keeping all the caps too.

Hey, would you look at that! 148 ISO users.

So there are more than the 3 ISO users who purchased GMK Jamon after all. Maybe data from 1 set ran on Drop isn't that valuable when it comes to evaluating demand for ISO.

Umm not to sound rude or anything but the addition kit has more than just support for UK ISO. People could be getting this kit in anticipation of boards that use a top right blocker, of which there are quite a few.

You are not wrong, although the base kit still supports those boards with a PgUp, PgDn, Fn config. I am fairly confident the vast majority of the Addition kit buyers are ISO users.

While that may be true, I could also see many getting the addition kit for Del, PgUp and PgDn with Fn being assigned to the key left of the arrow cluster. I guess what I'm trying to say is trying draw a definitive conclusion based on how this set or Jamon does in isolation is pointless.

FYI less than 1/5 of those addition sales come out of the EU, so yeah pretty safe to say most people bought it for added compat not ISO.

Yeah I mean from my rough calculations with both current 9009 numbers and Minimal sales numbers I'd guess the % of ISO users joining GBs is anywhere between 1-3% if you assume almost nobody outside of the EU uses ISO. Obviously you can say that because ISO is not in base it makes the % drop since it makes some people not want to join but stil. The small 40s kit for Minimal was bought by about 25% of people and Obscure is at ~14% right now. (Obviously very small data set and just an estimate)

Yeah having to buy a whole separate kit for a few keys you need for your layout is a major turn off for most people, and is why I avoided picking up Minimal altogether. If I joined, I would have to get the Obscure kit and then join the NORDEUK BoW kit too, which means the set would be well over £200 which is just too much. If ISO was in base it would have been a 80% buy, if ISO UK in base then 100% buy.

In for 9009 however as I am curious about trying the R5 bottom row, and I have a nice 9009 keypora.

FWIW the base set on the Drop WoB set [1] seems to cover a lot of things (not only was I able to make it work for a lot of different keyboards but it also includes ISO and a numberpad) all for 110 shipped to my door.  Though I am not sure how many units Massdrop purchased to make it happen at this price.

Combination of buying a looott of kits and having good deals with GMK I assume. Also no accent keys, no double tilde and pipe and such helps.

So Norde will likely be made regardless of hitting MOQ? That would be fantastic, because 100 seems most unlikely to be reached right about now...  :rolleyes:

That, and the massive audience and sales Drop has. Comparing Drop with any other GB venue is just insane.

No, but you should ask this in the 40s/Colevrak thread at the Interest Check part of Geekhack. 9009 uses stock GMK colors so it'd be doable as long as enough people have interest.

Just a quick question - are the colors of GMK 9009 exactly same as OG Cherry caps?
I know GMK bought moulds from Cherry so thickness will be same, but what about color?

They match well. GMK is known for a good quality control that includes the polymers mix.

Just be aware that some OG Cherry sets might be already yellowed at some degree. If they are, they will be a different shade of Beige.

I didn't realize I joined the GB the day after it ended. I was still able to join and received email confirmation, am I okay? I submitted a ticket on dixiemech but figured I'd ask here too.

When/how will extras be made available?  A quick read through the thread leads me to believe that extras will be made available.  Sorry, a little new to the custom keycaps and group buys, perhaps this should be obvious!  :)

for the record: "GMK informed us that this set is scheduled to ship from their warehouse at the end of March. Which means we will receive it a few weeks later and will try to have them shipped out by the end of April / Early May. It all depends how long they take to clear customs."

There's been near radio-silence from GMK in the past few weeks, understandable given Germany's effort to contain the COVID-19 outbreak.

GMK did post on Reddit about their new environmentally-friendly packaging recently, but that's all I've heard from them. Cherry corp also posted an April Fool's joke.

I'm glad Germany is taking serious measures to reduce the outbreak, and if that means delayed GMK sets, I'm fine with that. I just wish GMK was more communicative about what is going on. It concerns me that GMK is still accepting GBs as if they are going to run on schedule. The COVID-19 and subsequent economic crisis is going to affect both production and shipping for what is likely to be a long time.

It's a shame that they can release a post about their new packaging, but not GB statuses.

Why do we pay white tax, to GMK? To be ghosted. A simple message communicating a delay seems necessary, the radio silence just shows the level of professionalism. KAT Milkshake is also delayed, they released an updated timeline with deferred dates.

****ty of GMK to not communicate. I understand the delays, I do not understand the hesitance to communicate.

It's a shame that they can release a post about their new packaging, but not GB statuses.

Why do we pay white tax, to GMK? To be ghosted. A simple message communicating a delay seems necessary, the radio silence just shows the level of professionalism. KAT Milkshake is also delayed, they released an updated timeline with deferred dates.

****ty of GMK to not communicate. I understand the delays, I do not understand the hesitance to communicate.

There's been near radio-silence from GMK in the past few weeks, understandable given Germany's effort to contain the COVID-19 outbreak.

GMK did post on Reddit about their new environmentally-friendly packaging recently, but that's all I've heard from them. Cherry corp also posted an April Fool's joke.

I'm glad Germany is taking serious measures to reduce the outbreak, and if that means delayed GMK sets, I'm fine with that. I just wish GMK was more communicative about what is going on. It concerns me that GMK is still accepting GBs as if they are going to run on schedule. The COVID-19 and subsequent economic crisis is going to affect both production and shipping for what is likely to be a long time.

Oh, they did send an update to the vendors though.

Awesome information. At least GMK isn't a full year behind schedule.

Honeywell is also getting ready to ship, from what I understand. It was scheduled for around the same time as 9009.

What does that mean exactly?
Does it meant that it ships on that day. That they plan on finishing production that day? Perhaps something entirely different  :blank:

Does anyone know if mykeyboard was supposed to be a reputable company? Tried contacting them 3 times past months and no reply at all. Thinking whether I should make a police report or how do you deal when they take your money but don't respond at all to any inquiry...

They send invoice just before posting it, so you should get one soon.

Apparently, GMK is sending fix kits to people who have already received their sets.

There was an issue with the modifiers. You can see a photo of the kit here:

I may be wrong but the kit on the right looks like GMK Missing Keys, not sure what official fix kit that poster is referring too?

Ahhh, that makes sense. I was wondering how one of the main features of the set could have gone wrong like that.

I guess we'll see honest impressions of the new centered mods come trickling in. Not sure how I feel about it.
