[IC] GMK Cyrillic WoB and Beige | GB May 1st
« on: Wed, 19 February 2020, 14:52:50 »
GB PAGE LIVE: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=112583.0

Discord for updates: https://discord.gg/eGnjxGx

Hello all - I present to you GMK Cyrillic WoB & Beige.



When?
GB May 1st - June 1st. Estimated shipping Q2 2022.

Where?
USA: Cannon Keys
Canada: Deskhero
Europe: MyKeyboard
UK: Proto[Typist]
China: Zfrontier
Asia: Zfrontier EN
South Korea: Swagkeys
SEA: Monokei
Oceania: Daily Clack
UA: Funkeys

What?
GMK white-on-black and retro beige, now with Cyrillic sublegends. These are brand new doubleshot moulds developed for this project, paid for in part by this and GMK Red Alert. Given the slightly higher cost by default, kits are done with maximum bang-for-buck in mind, with support for 60%, 65%, 75%, TKL and TGR Alice-layout boards.

More info on the sublegends:
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
- 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.


And now for the renders. Many thanks to the talented pikku-allu for these and going above and beyond for this project, killing it as usual  :D

Kits:





Keycult No. 1:





TGR Alice:





Pricing:
$119.99 / €119.99, see vendor pages for rest. Will be adding links on the GB page as they go up.

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.

I would like to see this expanded to include WoB and BoW (CR on WS1) add-on kits as well.

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.
