[IC] GMK Cyrillic Beige Add-on Kit (Updated 15/10)
« on: Wed, 19 February 2020, 14:52:50 »
Discord for updates: https://discord.gg/eGnjxGx

Hi all,

Just gauging interest for a little kit I had considered running for some time. The set features CR Cyrillic sublegends on L9, made to match your favourite beige set. Inspired by OG Cherry keyboards (HASRO, SAV, HAV, etc.).

We have received quotes and this set will require 43 new moulds to become a reality - we are going ahead with doubleshot, so that these legends can be used by everyone else. I believe that the Cyrillic sublegends mentioned on GMK's website have only existed as UV prints until now.

Update 15/10:

New kit render added. Since none of these moulds exist and we're making them all for this project, the best thing to do is make it as accurate to actual Cyrillic as possible. Many thanks to konstantin for running me through this a while back, T0mb3ry for giving permission to use his Cyrillics, and allu for doing the render for the kit and having such incredible attention to detail. I am hoping to run this relatively soon - reaching out for a new quote now with this kit.

Changelog:
More

- grave, Q, W, E, U, I, O, P, ], A, S, G, K, L, semi-colon, apostrophe, Z, X, B, M, comma, period: all using T0mb3ry's mono Cyrillics as sublegends
- R, T, Y, [, D, F, H, J, C, V, N: all using Cherry Latin as sublegends
- the '/' tertiary legend on the pipe key has been put in the top right to be more accurate to the way it's used
- R3 pipe key added to support Russian ISO layouts
- Ë position changed to bottom right of the keycap to be consistent with the rest of the Cyrillic. This is a change that Cherry made in their later Cyrillic boards that hasn't translated through to a lot of modern sets.


The Kit:



I have elected to go for a full numrow and extra tab keys so that you can use this kit to cover two boards, provided you have a beige GMK base kit on hand already. An R3 pipe key has been added as of 15/10 for Russian ISO.

Renders:

(soon)

Vendors:

NA: Project Keyboard
EU: protoTypist
Asia: zFrontier
SEA: Monokei
OCE: Daily Clack
CA: Deskhero

Information:

- GMK Doubleshot ABS
- L9 base, CR legends
- Compatible with GMK 9009, OG Cherry doubleshot sets, GMK Classic Retro, GMK Beta, etc.; anything with L9 alphas

MOQ and Pricing:

- Tentatively pricing at higher MOQ than 150 to reduce kit price
- Exact pricing TBA, though I'm trying to keep it as inexpensive as possible

Very interested! Are GMK doing triple shot caps now? Would be cool to have the sub legends in red like the classic SAV sets.

You sure the numrow sublegends are top-right aligned?

No, GMK does not have tripleshot tooling.

Would agree, though I suppose offering three different variations is a little ambitious - I'm partial to WOB personally, beige is great too so I'm in either way but yea.

Thanks for the support!

Looking to keep this just to beige right now, so no WoB or BoW this time round. Pad printed red sub legends are a possibility however I'm leaning towards keeping it at doubleshot sublegends.

Unlikely, but I'll consider it. Probably gonna have a poll up in a day or two just seeing what people prefer.

Interesting concept.

You may want to consider adding an R3 \/| key (as the R2 and R1 versions of the key are already present) and PERHAPS an R4 <> key as well (not \/|).

There already was GMK Classic Retro Cyrillic with red pad printed sublegends.
Therefore I prefer the doubleshot option.

Don't run the pad-printed sublegends, at least not in their present form. They are awfully misshapen and are a far cry from what proper Cyrillic characters should look like (for a correct reference, check out GMK Yuri or GMK Yugo's Cyrillic legends).

Doubleshot black please.

Also, agreed. The characters used on Yuri were carefully checked and would work best as sublegends.

I would love to join, if my wallet's and GB's timing match. My preference goes to WoB, but I would entertain Beige, also. My favorite set is the former. I do not know if it is only me, but the WoB feels like being more denser than any other colors. I know it may be just my fatigued fingers, though.

I've had mixed experiences with GMK's pad print and would highly recommend doubleshot subs over them.

Filled a form accordingly.

+1. I may not join if the final set is pad printed. The bi-color may look good, but I prefer to know that the legends are as durable as the full key cap.

Just a quick update on this:

I'm 99% certain this will run with doubleshot sublegends. I've had a friend of mine that's got closer communication with GMK reach out about the different Cyrillic offerings they've got because to my knowledge it's never been done in doubleshot, and I want to make sure this is done right. Also because of that, none of the people who offer renders have the models so the KLE is going to have to do for now.

With how GMK is these days this is taking some time, but as soon as I do find out everything I'll try get this going. However, for now this is going to have little movement unfortunately.

GMK doesn’t offer tripleshot unfortunately. Red sublegends would have to be pad printed but as I said that’s not a direction I’m planning to go here.

Yeah, been working with a vendor inquiring about these moulds however progress with GMK is slow these days. We’re hoping to get the models directly from GMK for this. Not gonna update the main post just yet but the final kit will be a full set of alphas, doubleshot, with an extra tab in both icon and icon+text so you can cover two boards with this and a beige GMK set.

I like the idea of Cyrillic only set (someone above suggested it).
