About:

This idea came to me when I originally fell in love with GMK Honeywell. I decided to see what a keyset would look like if I inverted the colors, and ended up changing the white to a grey color. I instantly fell in love with the result.

An explanation for the light grey/blue modifier color thanks to the help of Mito!

The code 250 85 05 give a lot of information about the color
It informs it is a blue because the hue (250) on RAL goes from 10 to 360 and 250 is on the blue range of the RAL circle
It has a lightness of 85, which goes from 0-100, which means it is pretty light
And has a little bit of chroma or saturation 05 (goes from 0-100 too)
05 means the color is not very intense
If you memorize the 10-360 circle position, you can tell by the code itself what color is being discussed and even have a rough estimate it in your mind


Keyset colors:



Kits: Ashes | Ghost | Caldera | Lahar







Deskmats

Adventurer


Ghost


Sales Tracker


Renders

Satisfaction75 by Upas



Bauer by DixieMech



HB-CP by Hineybush

In for base + novelties + adventure deskmat.

I've been looking for a set to throw on my K-Type for a while and I really think this will be perfect :D might actually get some use out of the RGB for a change doing a cinder effect.

Are the ship out dates for the desk mats going to be the same as the keysets? Not sure if the plan is to ship everything out at the same time or as the production orders are met. I'm getting both the ghost and adventurer mat :D

Per 159's message on discord when someone asked the same thing: "Deskmats usually arrive quicker than keycaps. Production lead time is lower, but still subject to color sample and shipment by sea. I would say q3 to be safe but honestly with recent worldwide effects of covid19, a lot of dates have been up in the air."

A question about deskmats, what is the surface material? Is it cloth or something hard? Asking from a mouse pad perspective, i.e. how good is it for a mouse.

I had been in thoughts which gray set should I buy (Ashes, Apollo or Lunar) but after cancelling Basalt this set is no buy for me.

This groupbuy is the huge disappointment.

Update: saw the message from your Discord. Sorry for emotions. I appreciate your efforts. But anyway, why you didn't want to wait until the end of groupbuy, I don't know.

Waiting until the end of the gb to cancel a low selling kit is worse. If basalt never hit MOQ by the end then people that only wanted ashes if they could get basalt would likely have missed alternative group buys that had kits to support their layout of choice.

Yeah I've ordered deskmats that go with keysets before and they're made of the same material as most mouse pads (the soft ones, not the hard plastic ones). Sometimes they're a little thicker than a mouse pad (4mm). IMO they're great for mice and usually dampen the sound of a keyboard a little.

I agree with this, and Tyson did originally say they were going to drop 40s because of lack of interest, but we asked and he tried it anyway. It didn't move from 16 kits the entire time it was open, so I fully understand pulling the kit. I've bought a few other kits and the deskmat and I'm very grateful we had the opportunity to show our interest for the 40s kit even though there wasn't enough to get it over the line.

In for Base, Ghost, Caldera, and Ghost Deskmat.  This will complete an "Ember/Ashen" theme i have for my KBD75v2 with Zilentz v2s.  I didn't opt for the cable, but have one coming that is very similar.

Very excited about this set!

RIP 40s kit, I was gonna purchase in a couple of days but doubt that would've made a difference.

Just got an update from some of the vendors! We hit MOQ on Ashes Base and Caldera! We are 6% away from Ghost kit hitting MOQ and 48% away from the Lahar kit hitting MOQ! Thankfully we are just hitting the 2 week mark, should be able to have all kits hit MOQ before the end of the GB! Thank you everyone for joining and I can't wait to see what final numbers!

Current Numbers as of 3/13:

Ashes Kit(Base): 262
Ghost Kit(Alt Alphas): 95
Caldera Kit(Accent/Novelties): 113
Lahar Kit(Spacebars): 54
Adventurer Deskmat: 176
Ghost Deskmat: 61

So since you dropped the 40s kit that had the only 1u ctrl and alt will they be added in the base kit since they are used in many keyboard layouts and most of the time are included in base kits. I feel like not having any 1u ctrl and alt keys is a big oversight and definitely makes this set a deal breaker for. I was planing on getting the base kit, 2nd alphas kit and the 40s kit which would be enough to outfit 2 of my keyboards for around $231. Which would be nice considering gmk base kits can be 130-170 so 2 sets for 2 boards could be anywhere from 260 - 340 often higher when including novelties and other kits.

Would have loved to join, but the 40s kit being axed is a deal breaker for me. :( can't you just run that extra like the WoB extension kits, that are currently running? I am not going to join another group buy instead, because none of them run the Ashes colors for the mods. And I want those mods!

Any thoughts on making this in other profiles? Looking to move out of my SA Ashen caps and an SA Ashes set would be awesome.

Had this in my cart 4 or 5 times, but given the uncertainty of today's times I had to pass, for now.  :confused:

Might try to get this set aftermarket, but and SA profile would be way better.  :p

I'm sure there's enough interest in the set to be ran again especially since I know alot of people were holding off due to Covid and even then the set did extremely well! Cant wait to get my set!

There is definitely not enough interest in 40s. That is all known generally, see also other GMK sets with 40s in their package. Sales numbers are usually bad.

That differs, sometimes a month or 2, but I can't give you a really good indication.

Only if you have ordered it separately btw.

Update: Spoke to GMK over email yesterday to confirm all of the novelties, I am now waiting on color samples. I am looking into working with Nebulant on the colors so we can get as close of a match as possible to the RAL colors, similar to what was done for GMK Bingsu. No word on when the color samples will be coming in, but I will update everyone as soon as I find out.

Are there going to be any extras of the deskmats? I am so sad that I missed those, they look so good!

The Color Samples have been confirmed! The keysets is now in the production queue. The alpha result is on point. The Mod color result is on border where 159, and I believe is within acceptance range, 2.3 DeltaEab. Basically it came down to my call, and I said yes, lets go with the color. I really love the sample colors and think you guys will too!

Will desk mats be sent out soon? I am already expecting my GMK Deep Navy desk mat that was ordered much later than this one.

The set uses Left Centered Icons.

Oh... what was reasoning behind this if you dont mind me asking? I was under the impression that they were OG mods, left centered doesn't look right and seem inconsistent to me TBH

All kit renders have always shown left centered mods. I apologize for the confusion. It was a decision that I made from the very beginning with the set. MetallicCharles's renders show the left centered mods, but unfortunately his queue for renders was taking a lot long than anticipated so I switched to Abec to finish the renders for the set. Abec's board renders were inconsistent with showing that and I apologize. Left Centered imo looks nice in person when sets ship with it, I've seen it on 8008, and Bingsu. All of my next sets coming up will only feature Text + Icon mods as that is my favorite look for mods after falling in love with it on Honeywell.

Hey Tyson - do we have any updates? Are we still waiting in production queue?

Just wondering if we're still on track for the Q4 estimated ship date is all.

Thanks for running the GB!

So mods are a bit lighter overall with yellow and oransigh tone (compared to what was planned) from graph. Can you compare samples to 8008 if you have?
