[GB] GMK Modern Dolch Light - OVER 3000!
« on: Sun, 02 February 2020, 00:16:16 »
Hello everyone!
 
The time has finally come, the GB for GMK Modern Dolch Light, a brighter variation of the popular GMK Modern Dolch! Jan and I have worked very hard to make this project as great as it can be and we are very excited to finally bring it to you.
 

 
Inspiration/Naming
 
As the name might suggest, Modern Dolch Light was born out of Modern Dolch. Janglad and I realised that a lightened up version of MoDo looked great and after some tweaking this is what we came up with. Modern Dolch light features cool greys on both the alphas and modifiers. It uses the grey from Modern Dolch modifiers for the legends, to give it that unique low contrast and calming look. To add some vibrancy we added a variation of the familiar cyan and red/pink accents found in the original Modern Dolch.
 
Now I know the naming might not make sense, this isn't a Dolch set after all. GMK Modern Dolch Light is a derivative of GMK Modern Dolch which is a derivative of OG Dolch. While this set is not necessarily a Dolch colorway, the name is there to show the origin of the design. One thing is for sure, this set will settle perfectly in every collection as an easy-on-the-eyes colorway that will go with any keyboard!
 

 
Buy it here
 
GMK Modern Dolch Light will be sold until the end of the month by these vendors. The set is expected to ship in Q4 of 2020.
 
Day one buyers will get a $5 discount as well as getting raffle spots for the artisans shown below Due to time-zone differences, some vendors having the change pricing manually, ... this 24h mark might not be exact.

Addition adds keys for a OSX focused bottom row, 60%s with  arrows through the 2u shift, 660 layouts with the extra 2.25u shift, full ISO UK support and some options for different legends in the 65% and caps lock area.

Aside from the gray one, are the Pink and Teal Rama caps this time the same as Modern Dolch's ones? They look very similar to me.

The base color is the same, but the cyan is a little lighter than Modern Dolch. Also, the red cap in the MoDo groupbuy had a red ano with Gray enamel fill. This time it is a Gray ano with a red enamel fill

WE ARE OFFICIALLY LIVE!

Few things...

MyKeyboard.eu will have their page live soon.

The promo for the $94.99 price will run for 24 hours on each vendor respectively. So every region will have 24 hours to take advantage.

We will have cables available from MechCables soon. If you want to take advantage of the Day One promos, you will not lose out on the cable. Once they are available, you can just message the customer support of your respective proxy, and we can add it to your order.

Thanks to everyone for the support on the project! Let's make this the biggest one yet!

💰 In for a base kit. Is this the lowest price ever for any GMK base kit? 9009 and TA were $99 back then

Why isn't that stuff in the Norde kit as well when you already remove all ISO specific keys from the base?
People who buy the Norde kit won't use the UK-ISO specific keys anyway. Wouldn't it have been better to have a complete UK-ISO kit AND a Norde kit with ISO-Enter, 1.25 shift, etc.?

You son of a *****, I'm in!

I was on the fence at first, then I scrolled down and fell on the Kendo renders and it just clicked. I have two really dark sets on the way, this would be my only light set and it would look amazing on the white Polaris, on the MoDo Light deskmat, and next to the white-and-light-blue Sköll mouse I just got. Complete theme package, and even better when/if I get a Kendo later on.

Good luck with the set, I have no doubt people will love it :D

Apologies for the delay on the €5 discount on the Mykeyboard site. Everyone who ordered the set up to this point will get the €5 refunded, the deal has also been extended for new customers until midnight (CET) so get it while you still can!

Which set that ran recently are you thinking of? The only ones I can remember are Peach Blossom and 9009, which for the most part have the same general base kit structure.

What sets were you thinking of? I can think of GMK WoB, but that's not a fair comparison since that used only 2 stock colors.
