[GB] GMK N9 Ortholinear Add-on Kit
« on: Thu, 12 September 2019, 07:09:14 »

(GMK render)

GB starts 09/12 and will close in a month. Projected shipping early 2020.

Vendors and pricing:

MOQ: 150
EU: mykeyboard.eu / 41.99 / https://mykeyboard.eu/catalogue/gmk-n9-ortholinear-add-on-kit_1238/
NA: olkb.com / $46.99 / https://olkb.com/parts/gmk-n9

This is a very simple modifier kit with N9 base and CP legends, meant to work with sets with white and beige alphas, and most sets with alphas that have white legends.

Why a modifier only kit? Well many GMK sets don't have ortholinear support and some of those that do don't even reach MOQ. This set is in N9 due to its broad compatibility with many different alphas. I have tried to keep this set as minimal as possible while making sure that it supports as many different ortholinear keyboards as possible.

Renders:

Planck with GMK Monochrome alphas


Planck with GMK Space Cadet alphas


Preonic with Cherry MX black switches



Special thanks to:
- Jack from olkb for expressing interest in this set very early on
- keeb.io doing likewise and offering to buy this set in bulk
- David and Yuliia from mykeyboard.eu for all the help and bearing with me and my countless questions about gmk
- Oblotzky for the lovely render

Would love to see this on the front page of OLKB, it's a bit hard to find otherwise

Curious what numbers are looking like for this. I know you said that Keeb.io is buying a lot of sets, but it's hard to find on OLKB and I'm not sure many folks know it's running.

Hoping for the best. Cheers!

Should be a lot through Keeb.io and/or OLKB. I believe Keeb.io bought so many sets that meeting MOQ wasn't an issue.

Hiya, any update on production? I have been keeping my eye on the OLKB.com product page and Keebio discord looking to score extras :)
