I've waited for this. Ordered alphas, icon mods and north kits.

People will regret not getting this.

The cannonkeys link is wrong - it points to GMK peaches and cream.

Haha. Def how I'm feeling. Have plenty of English alpha sets. Feel like Greek on this is cool. Just like base Perestroika.

Until the end of the month just like all Cannon Keys sets. I think only a couple of mod-only sets haven't followed that pattern.

Might be a little too late since GB has started and it might affect pricing of the kits! But I thought I'd just give it a shot to ask if any of these changes could be implemented?

1. Adding a navy spacebar (6.25) to the alt alpha set as the rest of the alpha sets have both coloured spacebars. Would have requested the spacebars to be moved to mods sets instead since ergo users wont need the 6.25u spacebars (similar to Minterly's KAT Eternal set) but I think that's a little to late oops.
2. Adding F5-F8 keys to the alt alpha set, so those getting the alphas can choose which Fn keys to swap out.
3. Splitting the alt numpad to its own set, since numpad is already its own set. Not everyone getting the alt alphas necessarily need the numpad set either.

Again, I understand if its too late for any changes but thanks for hearing me out otherwise! Wished I had said something earlier but I didn't notice it until I saw the new renders with the alt alphas and wanted to get them :(. Thank you! :)

It's too late to make any changes to this. Once a keyset goes GB, nothing can be done.

Yeah I didnít think any changes could be made either. Just thought Iíd drop a message to consider for future sets. Thanks for the reply though, much appreciated!! Went with the alt alphas in the end so canít wait for that  :thumb:

Forgive me because I'm pretty sure this was brought up a couple times in the IC thread. Can anyone talk a little more about KAT profile? I personally use GMK on all of my boards. I've used OEM too and liked it. SA has always intrigued me, but every time I've tried SA at a meetup, it has just seemed way too tall for me. I've tried MT3 as well, and while I love the look of it, I found it a little uncomfortable (weird might be a better word) if my keystrokes didn't hit perfectly centered on the keycap. Again, I've always found spherical profiles interesting and cool looking, but I just haven't found one that was right for me. I have obviously not yet tried KAT.

I really like the look of this set, but I also plan on buying GMK Nautilus 2, GMK Midnight Rainbow, 4 of the GMK Bleached RAMA caps, the Zambumon Jules, the SOAP macro pad, and maybe the Eclipse F-row-less TKL that's currently in IC. So considering that I'm already spending too much money, I hesitate to order a set that I may dislike the profile of.

Tl;dr
Any insight into how KAT may be for a GMK user that finds SA too tall would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Iíve not personally used KAT, but from the specifications its closest analog is DSS from Signature Plastics. It has spherically-shaped tops like SA, rather than cylindrical tops like GMK. The height and overall angles of the row-to-row sculpt are somewhat closer to GMK, however.

Yeah. That last line is why I much prefer KAT over SA

Here's a side view comparing KAT to SA and Cherry (GMK).

My first post in the world of custom KBs and first time participating in a GB! In for alphas, text mods and creatures too, renders look great with a blue kb. Kinda refreshing from all the GMK sets. Hope it pairs well with my first KB purchase.

Hopefully soon. I'll reach out to some of the collabs that I originally made plans with and see. I'm really just at their mercy though about when they happen lol
