Design

This is a very simple set that I was inspired to do after seeing ARSLOCK and hiney's Classic Blue. I've run it by them and they are both okay with me bringing this set to IC. The set will feature two stock GMK colors: P3 (red) and CP (white).





Kits

Base Kit


Spacebars Kit

Keycult No. 1/65





TGR 910RE







Vendors

US: TX Keyboards

Oceania: DailyClack



If you're interested in seeing this set come to GB, please fill out the
IC FORM

Discord Server



Change Log
2.13.20 - Announcement of TX Keyboards as US vendor!



Moving Forward

I like this a lot! Hopefully stock colors keep it a good price and I'm definitely getting this!

1. P3 red alphas kit like hineybush did for violet on cream. 
2. Split red space bars. Goes with this, is the ultimate split bar for handarbeit. Put em in the 40s kit for all I care, just let me buy them.

Like this. Would love an all red set with white legends, i.e., make the alphas like the mods are currently.

1. I'm definitely considering a Red Alphas Kit for a uniform look. It's in the IC form, so if this is something you'd really like to see happen, please go vote for it there!
2. If the Red Alphas Kit ends up becoming a thing, split red space bars will definitely be included! :)

Thank you for your feedback!

This is an easy one for me to get in on. One thing I would like to see if it doesn't mess with pricing too much is an F13 keycap. Otherwise, I think the kits are setup nicely.
The Koreans did it all right ;)

Any possibility of a kit for Red on Beige modifiers like P3 on U9 for that Red Alert look.

I knew it was the right idea to be lazy and let someone else run this. I've been too lazy but I have been waiting over a year for someone to actually start running classic sets again. Also I wouldn't buy the red alphas kit, but it would be nice to have the option for everyone else.

Not what I expected based on the name.
Why not full RED set?

There's Perestroika, there's Crimson Cadet...

I think "Classic Red" is a better name that "RoW", which is what I would have come up with.  :thumb:

Just wanted to give a quick update - red alphas will become a thing due to overwhelming interest in it!

I'm currently deciding between making a completely new Base Kit, like how ARSLOCK and hiney did with Classic Blue, or a child kit. My biggest concern would be a new base kit struggling to hit MOQ or competing with the current base kit for production, whereas I'd feel more comfortable with a child kit hitting MOQ. The biggest determining factor will be which US vendor decides to pick up the set! More updates to come in the near future :)

Fair points :) "RoW" sounds a bit worst (not bad tho!) then Classic Red, haha agree! :D but is more suitable IMHO.

Of course, I'm not the one who should dictate the naming for someone's set/work, but why to block a great name like "Classic Red" and not include red Alphas ;) that was my concern.

Example of name, where I know what is behind it:
GMK Classic Blue - https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=102663.0

Please forgive me (Warrenified especially), I didn't want to offend anyone!

No offense taken at all! As I mentioned in the update above, Red Alphas will become a part of the set in either a Child Kit or in the form of a new Base Kit!

Red is the best color, it's even in front of the rainbow. Don't run this too fast, my wallet is recovering from my recent purchases.
