Inspiration + Design

More
My home away from home, this keyset is inspired by Lake Tahoe, California.

I started working on this project in early May when I went up to Tahoe.
Everything from the air, to the sound of the birds, and the colors of the forest allow me to breathe and unwind. This keyset is designed to convey those feelings.
The name of the set, Ursa, comes from the black bears who make the forests their home in the summer.

I wanted to keep this set relatively low cost. As such, it uses two stock GMK colors and one RAL color for accurate color matching.

Donation + Transparency

I'm excited to announce that that myself, the vendors, and proxies behind GMK Ursa are proud supporters of the League to Save Lake Tahoe. A portion of all proceeds will be donated to their organization. Learn more about them here: https://www.keeptahoeblue.org/

"The League to Save Lake Tahoe is dedicated to protecting and restoring the environmental health, sustainability, and scenic beauty of the Lake Tahoe Basin. We focus on water quality and its clarity for the preservation of a pristine Lake for future generations. "Keep Tahoe Blue" means a crystal clear Lake, protecting watersheds that support native plants and forests and abundant wildlife, an active and informed community of residents and visitors who act as stewards for the Lake, and communities and facilities within longstanding urban boundaries that harmonize with the natural environment, and provide low-impact outdoor recreational opportunities now and into the future."

Ursa Major: 20%
Ursa Paddington: 20%
Ursa Honey: 20%
Ursa Cub: 20%
Ursa O Horizon: 20%
Ursa Tessie: 100%

Transparency: These percentages reflect the share of my profits that will be donated to The League to Save Lake Tahoe. Each vendor will also be donating $1 per kit sold. A total donation amount will be disclosed after the completion of the group buy. Both a screenshot of my donation to The League to Save Lake Tahoe via their website and a copy of the relevant bank statement will be posted together.

Just let me know whether you have Ursa or Olivia on your board at any given time and I’ll be sure to put the other one on so we’re always at least somewhat different

For me the Paddington Kit is the superstar here:
US over ISO, UK and a vertical enter key novelty!

Not something you see every day - very much appreciated, wow. The perfect showcase. In comparison, even Uniqey's Q:01 has merely UK support (no R3 \|).

Have a successful GB, will be well deserved...

Lol don't even sweat it. Great minds think alike. I'm filling out the kendo with Olivia's hi caps on the alphas anyway, so it'll be super different regardless.

Yes, it shows, I've learned a lot from his posts and articles! Proper ISO capability should not be a mystery, but too many designers have a false idea of baseline support - on the other hand, Ursa is, well, pure bliss :thumb:

Unfortunately, orders from Kono are not eligible for the SwitchPuller giveaway, that offer is exclusive to SwitchKeys. However, Kono should have something separate launching later this week!

I'd also like to show off this stunning render of Paddington on the beautiful J-02.



As all of you well know, Ursa is supporting Keep Tahoe Blue with a portion of our proceeds.

Been watching this set for a while! I will definitely be joining soon. I need the 40s kit and if the 40s set doesn’t hit MOQ will the whole order be refunded or just the price for the 40 kit. Sadly I don’t need the set unless I can get the 40 set as well.

It's likely 40s will not hit MOQ, historically they never do. However, hopefully the vendors will decide to buy out 40s so that you'll be able to get your kit!

Sorry for the delayed graphs everyone! Here are our latest numbers, we should be on track to make MOQ with this buy. Thank you to everyone who has bought the set so far, and thank you to all those who plan to buy it come Christmas and the new year.

My second GMK group buy, I do believe this set is going to compliment a muted army green color board real well.

I love the green accent keys in this set so i will be joining this right after Christmas. I'm gonna go for Major, O Horizon and possibly Paddington.
However, due to missing NorDe kit i'm not going to be using anything from this set except for the green Esc, Enter and 6.25 space bar so just shoot me a PM if you're interested in the set excluding just those 3 mentioned keys. I'd be willing to let it go for half price.

Or even better, if somebody is going to join this set but would be willing to part ways with those 3 keys mentioned above i'll give $50+ for them. Again just shoot me a PM if so.

What do you think chances are that this set gets bought out based on the way current orders have been looking? Mainly wondering about other kits since it looks like the base will probably hit MOQ.

Ideally 100%. It would be a shame if one of the kits were to not make it.

That's what I'm hoping for. I got 1 of every kit when this opened cuz I liked the theme and its colorways. And I really like what you did with the ISO kit. I feel like giving it something exclusive and visually appealing got people who mainly use ASNI to consider making an ISO build, myself included.

Yeah, I've been trying to push this set as much as I can across Reddit and the like. I had some posts up on r/mm and r/mk just this past weekend and will probably push again later this week. Hopefully, numbers will start climbing more steadily into the new year.

Nice numbers on a busy season.

613 base with extras. 125 Iso kits. This is...7x? the rate of iso kits to base kits vs Olivia, 5-6x vs nautilus nightmares. I think you found the formula for getting that kit to MOQ-put an exclusive novelty in there.

I worry it's gonna be a lot longer than July. Wind the clock back to October, you've got Camping and Dracula at 4500 base kits between the two of them. Camping hasn't been made, and is projected to ship to vendors in May, to customers in May or June. Dracula hasn't been color matched yet. GMK Crimson Cadet which closed mid october hasn't been color matched yet. Unless you're jumping one or both of Dracula and Olivia++ (a memeworthy over 9000! base kits between them) I worry Q4 is more likely. Current sets (Nautilus R2)are being projected as a 8-10 month lead time.

I mention this not to be a total downer, but I'm probably not the only one who's going to be moving some time this year, and even though I had everything within 6.5 months of the move shipped to my Dad's place, it may not going enough for Cafe, Coral, Bingsu and others from November.

Ursa has completed the color-matching phase, and as of mid-March we had a 23 week lead time. So I guess that puts us into August?

Hey that’s not bad relative to other delays. Maybe w the color matching done you can jump some of the other sets that haven’t.

Small update guys. GMK have advised this will be ready to ship to us next month - I am assuming earlier rather than late July.

So if you get it late July, that puts it in buyers' hands early-to-mid-August?

I really like the colors of this set. One question though, as I've seen real photos of this set with a "Num Lock" key (two lines), whereas the renders show only "Num". Are there actually two different molds at GMK to choose from? Sorry if this is something well known, I'm obviously new to this hobby and just recognized this deviation by accident.

The set left GMK in early September and KONO told me ocean transit was expected to take 4-6 weeks. Unfortunately, that's all the updates I really have on the matter

Ursa Arrived and was immediately put onto the new Maja Ergo build, for which it was not planned but was perfect.  I could really use the 40's and the spacebar kits for Ursa if anyone would be prepared to sell me them, please PM me.

I have to yet again voice my total hatred of the awful GMK 'paper mache' packaging which now seems to come as standard, ready to ruin every keycap stored within it.  It is just horrible and I hope they listen to their customers and change it soon.

Here are a few images, sorry about the quality, I no longer have a good camera, just a phone.

Kono does this whole "pre-order" thing now after a GB - I imagine all of their "extras" are allocated to people who buy a pre-order set.
