[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: TBA
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.

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.

Got quotes from GMK and as it turns out this will require 43 new moulds, however we're proceeding with doubleshot since I think it's important these moulds do exist  ;D

Oooof.

Have you tried reaching out to some NA vendors already? I think vendors normally expect designers to reach out and not the other way around. I understand they may already have slots filled out for most if not all of the rest of this year.

Have you tried reaching out to some NA vendors already? I think vendors normally expect designers to reach out and not the other way around. I understand they may already have slots filled out for most if not all of the rest of this year.

Reached out to a couple, but it doesn’t hurt to ask here too just in case. Personally I don’t think it would hurt to run this alongside something else as it’s not a full set, though ultimately that’s up to the vendor.

Quick update:

Got quotes from GMK and as it turns out this will require 43 new moulds, however we're proceeding with doubleshot since I think it's important these moulds do exist  ;D

It may be worth trying to reach out to all of those that you know of. Exactly as you said, they may be able to handle the logistics as it is a smaller, single-kit buy.

Since this alpha add-on kit is supposed to be paired with an existing beige keyset, the extra Tab lets you reuse half of the mods and the original alphas from that keyset to fully cover another keyboard (assuming it uses a different layout). Most keysets come with different options for the mods (stepped/non-stepped Caps, regular/tsangan bottom row etc.) — Tab is the only key that comes in a single copy. That's why alpha add-on kits like this include a second Tab; essentially, so that you can use the remainder of your set so it doesn't go to waste.

Considering this will be pretty expensive for an alpha kit (new molds and all) running it along a classic retro set (or expending it to include mods) might work better.

+1 It'd be interesting to see what the cost would be for a full base kit with these alphas vs. just the alphas themselves. Could be worth looking in to!

This is super exciting.
Would be even better if this set could use T0mb3ry's font for Cyrillic's, as the OG Cherry one has been historically quite crooked.
Either way im in.
(Edit: just read the update on discord about the use of T0mb3ry's sublegends. This is actually amazing, i cant wait)

This is indeed the plan. The Ë placement change was actually something introduced in some later Cherry boards however it for whatever reason never made its way into modern Russian sets.

I’m waiting on some updated stuff for renders right now but will post it all when it’s done.

If you use a third color, it'll have to be pad-printed.

The reason it is being done with only one color for both the main and the sublegend is so that the entire legend set can be double-shot. It'll be the first in its kind (Cyrillic sublegend) to be done in this form, much like Hangul Beige and Greek Beige have been done.

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:

- 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.

I was also thinking about suggesting this. Usually, sets only include an extra Tab key in their alphas kit because the base kit comes with an accent Enter option, which makes it two ANSI Enter keys in base, so an extra one in alphas isn't needed. But in this case, since the target for this add-on are OG doubleshot sets among others, it might be a good idea to include two extra ANSI Enters (one icon, one icon+text) since OG sets don't come with any extra ANSI Enter keys; and in the case of OG ISO sets (which are quite common), they come with none at all.

If this support is to be added, I would personally recommend also having a left Shift support added as well.

Any conversion from ISO to ANSI will require those three keys (at minimum): Left Shift, Enter, and pipe (which we already have)

Thanks for the suggestion, but I think I'll pass. The initial quote we received was much more on the expensive side and though adding, say, an icon enter + 2.25 shift would make it able to convert ISO OG doubleshot sets to ANSI I don't think that's the direction I want to go here. It'd be a nice change for a small number of people but I think for the majority of buyers it would mean more money being put into keycaps they're not gonna use.
