This is the most accurate I could get for color.

Pics in your bright bathroom > accuracy. Look forward to the 2020 blue keyset group picture too.

absolutely gorgeous set. delighted by how it turned out. i am curious though about one thing in particular: with SP SA is it normal to have caps with so many (for my lack of a better term) "machine marks"? a lot of my modifier keys have "scratches", ones that you can see only at a certain angle. my r3 pipe key for example has two big scratches. i am hopeful with time that they will go away after the shine develops, but even then it's not a big deal. i am just curious if it's normal.

Yes, that has been the case in every SP set Iíve owned.

Ha.  That took me way too long to figure out which keycap goes where.  It's been a long time since I had to look at a photo to get it right.  :thumb:  This is the most accurate I could get for color.  Keep in mind this is natural shaded light.  There is a window to my left and it's 5:00pm.  The desk mat is a cool white and black.  Colors are really nice.  I wish the orange popped more on the dark blue, but overall, the aesthetic is quite lovely.

Bold and beautiful.

Those markings are left from injection process and you basically see the plastic flow during that process. They are visible because of the natural semi matte surface. If the caps had texture like Cherry or DCS profile then those markings would not be visible. Once the caps start to shine they should become invisible.

Just got my DCS kit in and it looks great. Still waiting on a board to throw it on. So it goes with Alps. Noticed that the "? /" is a little odd. Not a big deal, just an observation. Drop snuck me in an extra "P" so if anyone is missing it, I'm your guy. 245072-0

Indeed its odd. Tho i did not noticed it but the "' ` symbols which were way too bold for the rest of the symbols. Those keys should have been replaced and be inline style-wise with other symbols.

I checked out everything and the "' ` symbols were definitely fixed in my set.  :thumb: I'm very happy with my set, thanks T0mb3ry!

The stems are perfect btw, went on without a struggle, I was able to pull caps without feeling like I was going to damage them. Everyone should definitely go for this kinda stem for future group buys.

Fantastic! First custom alps board with Yuri. I was thinking it will take some time until i see first alps builds with Yuri.

I am glad people are enjoying their sets and specifically the DCS ALPS sets. I wish personally the ALPS set to be with more bold Cherry font but it was already expensive...

I too did not get an email from drop, really glad to have caught it, will be adding some novelties to my SA Dasher board. ☭ for escape for sure, maybe an CCCP ISO return, we'll see how it looks.

Held off a second set of alps, looks like more sets will be coming and I wanna support them.

I already posted an image but here's another to show how versatile this set is.  First SP Alps set that can fit a TKL!  It looks glorious on my Ice Planet custom.  Now to figure out the qmk codes for assigning the means of production to the workers and overthrowing the bourgeois.

I created a for sale thread to sell (ironic I know) the three additional Alps DCS Yuri sets I purchased.  Check it out if interested.

damn did not expect extras to go up so soon and now they have sold out of 40% kit. I would have gotten it for the single 1.25 u shift key so that i could have Iso in the correct profile considering UK kit was not made. guess i will be seeing if any one is letting go of one or if they turn up in grab bags.

Really disappointed with SA Yuri support.

  • Wrong '3' from numpad kit
  • Missing './>' from dual cosmos kit, and duplicated ',/<' was provided

But after 1 weeks no response, final reply from Drop is that they refused to provided replacement for wrong keys and explained that no more leftovers. A the same time, Drop was very hurry to sell all leftovers to make money.

The render were such a bright, beautiful blue with gorgeous red legends. In reality, the keys are dull-ish, and while the blue is tolerable, the legends are in reality kind of a gross, muddy orange. Considering sending them back... I really hate orange :-(

i agree that the keys are a bit more dull than expected in terms of the vibrancy of the legend, but red? you might want to get a new monitor.

The QC of Signature Plastics and the AS of Drop are really the worst.

In my experience so far, the After Service of personal vendors was better than Drop.

I have prayed that there would be no error whenever I received SP keysets set from Drop.

I hope the future SP GB will be run at the personal vendor not Drop.

Hmmm.... I just went to build a board and found out that the space bar on Alps DCS makes contact with the alps switch housing.  Better figure this out before more DSC Alps sets run.  Also... I guess I will be selling my alps set :(

I think i've figured out the issue.  All they need to do is add the supports around the stem to keep it from going in too deep to the switch.  Those supports are there on the other stabilized keys.  If you press the cap all the way into the switch, it doesn't work.  But if you carefully put it on and don't press down all the way it works much better.

What stabs are you using? I had trouble with filco style costar, swapped to non-filco and it was absolutely fine no matter how far down the spacebar was pushed.
