About Copper
More
Copper is an amazing element. I have long been a collector of coins and that is where the colour inspriration was derived from. Looking at Copper in more detail this set touches on Copper in a number of seemingly unrelated ways. The Biology of Copper, in the blood of spiders and the octopus. The chemistry of Copper in the element itself and past alchemist representations of Copper. And finally in history in likely one of the most famous examples in the world of Copper patina in the Statue of Liberty.


Kits

Base


Numpad+Physical ISO+Basic Ortho/40s

As a new KB "enthusiast," this is the first cap set that I've followed from conception to pre-order. I've got my order in for the base kit and novelties already, and am adding the rest of the things next payday. Love this design fatboycarney! I wish you every success is reaching your minimums and beyond! Fingers crossed for one of the limited cables, because they're gorgeous! Hoping to pair this up with a nice wooden keyboard, I think!

Thanks Assembly you are correct, I have since updated the OP and clarified, these are indeed copper that are then put through a process to Patina them. Salvun is amazing I recommend checking his metal manipulation skills on instagram! He shares quite a lot!

Oh and about the caps the Alchemy cap is being worked on and as soon as we have it I will get pics up and out to the vendors!!

Regarding the ultimate cable, is that going to be a 4-pin or 5-pin LEMO connector, and is the connector somehow copper plated or painted?

Ok sorry for the wait but had to get some info, it is a 4 pin but it is not a Lemo which is a brand name connector, Josh calls this a push/pull connector.
It is not copper plated (but wow it looks it eh) It is meticulously painted by Mekanist, of Archetype fame. Hope that answers your questions.

Ok I'm in, thanks a lot and best of luck with the remainder of the GB!

Thank you so much, Its an honour sir!

I think it would work but only based on pictures of the board I have seen, would love to see it, hopefully others can chime in with their thoughts

I really love the kit and the whole idea behind it. I just personally have no board to put it on and difficulty to match any environment (home or office).
But GL with the GB, I am really looking forward to see the end results once people start to post their boards later on!

Oh wow  :eek: I think that board is pretty perfect, even if its not an exact match a bronze tone wouldnt be bad IMHO. I love the plate colour to which would look great underneath the caps. Of course I may have some bias in all this  :p

Yeah that was the idea.  I literally sent a photograph of an oxidized copper chunk to the manufacturer for reference :)  Matte cyan-teal plate and more shiny coppery case finish.  They've done a great job on the colors.  I've had difficulties finding a perfect set for it--GMK Mint Chocolate modifiers are an excellent pairing, but not the alphas.

I haven't been paying a lot of attention to the custom keyboard scene for the last few months, so I only just discovered this set from a Kono email yesterday. 
However, this set may end up being perfect for a board for which I was having trouble choosing a keycap set to compliment it.... so I'm now in!  :thumb:

Ultimate Copper Experience Cable Raffle Form is posted. It will remain open until the day after the Group Buy closes. All info is in the form, if you have any questions let me know.

I want to add that this cable is not for everyone based on the pricing, Josh was very concerned about the pricing and didnt want it to be as much as it is however the materials required, plus the length of time to make the cable (especially painting the push/pull connector is many steps) the price in the form is what we came up with.

I've been afk for several months and really haven't followed any ICs. Very glad I didn't miss this GB! This is such a great colour set, so just wanted to say great job!

Looking forward to having this be one of my first GMK sets.

Hm I had an oxidized copper themed keyboard made a couple years ago -- this might be the perfect set for it!  Though mine might be a bit closer to bronze in tone vs. this set.

This should be a group buy too!

Thanks again dvorcol for the amazing graphs.  :thumb:

Wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who has joined in on the set so far, the progress we are making so far is right on track. We have essentially hit MOQ on novelties (really wanted it to be 100 but close enough) All the deskmats will be made. And we have nearly reached 200 Salvun caps sold. Amazing!  :eek:

Also there is more to come to go along with the set so stay tuned here, as I add all updates on Geekhack as we go along this journey!

I honestly do not think I could have chosen a better (for me, and worse for my wallet) set to mark the beginning of my involvement in this hobby. A month ago, I told myself I would never make a huge investment into artisans, but here I am with 3/4 available so far, on probably the coolest set I've seen in my year of browsing looking for the one to go in on.

Don't tell my GF I called GMK Copper "The One".

Amazing, thanks so much for this great feedback! And so glad you chose Copepr to be "the" set to start with. The artisan collaborations have been so much fun, the artists are great and so talented its my pleasure to offer them along with the set.

I wont tell its our secret!!  ;)

I was waaay late on GMK Carbon for my current ergodox, but I found the Carbon 'dox kit used, and was able to source some blank alphas to fill out the board that matched the colorway well enough. Without enough Copper 1.5u & 2u keys, even that approach isn't really an option here :(

So bummed I won't be able to cover the Infinity ErgoDox build I'm putting together, but really incredible work! I *love* the colorway, and the artisans are just *chef's kiss*.

That Infinity ErgoDox takes a ton of 2u keys!  Do any GMK sets fill it?

Also, as much as I told myself not to join this group buy, I had to pull the trigger today. I have more keycap sets than boards already, and I'm also waiting on Olivia++ and Phosphorous! But those Salvun artisans... oh man.  I do not like artisan keycaps, but those things hit the spot. I used to collect minerals as a kid, and a big hunk of half polished copper was always my favorite. Now I just need to find another board to match this set.

Thanks for the great feedback and Ergodox really is really something only a massive set like Carbon could ever hope to support, not sure if there are any others from GMK but its pretty rare. Hey maybe you can pick up a Salvun cap  :p

Thats amazing! Thank you so much for the support! The Salvun caps have been better than I could have imagined and I knew they would be awesome..lol. Good luck finding a board, there are lots out there and new ones popping up everyday!
