This is a gorgeous set! I was sorry to see the Ergo (Extra Sugar) cancelled, but certainly understand. I appreciate the attempt.  :thumb:
Owning 2 'Doxes I understand my opportunity for GMK sets is few and far between (and Colemak to boot when I can get it!). My guess is a lot of Ergodox-EZ buyers aren't necessarily active in this community and don't know these sets are available. (REALLY seems ZSA could grab 20 sets or so for resale anytime these show up!)  And there just isn't enough of the custom Dox variants(Hot Dox, etc) within the custom community to buy these up to MOQ. That being said, Sets like Olivia and 8008 could have offered a Ergodox and certainly would have made it.  :mad:
I'll continue to make due with Oblivion and also Dots which just shipped!. (and the butt load of KAT sets in the pipe).

GLAD all the others are getting made. I'm anxious to get a look at this set at a meetup once delivered.
Cheers!

Yeah, I was hopeful for it, but alas. It's definitely hard to get the word out to ergo users it seems, not to mention most seem used enough to uniform profiles like DSA that jumping to GMK is steep for a profile they're not familiar with.

If I still want this kit for my ergodox, is there any kits apart from the base that would help me out with my build? Or would it be a better idea to just combine the taro base with a complete ergo kit from another set?

The later. The only way to do it with the current kits, would be if you were to buy multiple kits just for a few 1.5u mod keys. You'd have way too many unused keys for the money you are spending for it to make sense. Unfortunately, there aren't a lot of other ergo mod kit options either. You could try GMK Oblivion assembly, GMK Lunar, GMK Sixes (not sure when GB will be), GMK N9 assembly (TKC), but I'm not sure how well those will match with Taro, if at all.

Hey everyone, saw some folks talking about Taro in the SKB2 IC so I reached out to PlastikSchnittstelle and he was kind enough to throw together a ton of renders! He used what we thought were the 2 best-fitting case colors that he's offering (grey and yellow).

Some really cool with each color imo, if you want more info on the SKB2 check out the IC here!

Re: [GB] GMK Taro R2 - LAST DAY - $110 Base Kit - Cables!

Hey everyone, it's officially the last day to get GMK Taro!

Expect more detailed numbers and one of Dvorcol's lovely graphs once numbers are finalized, but I wanted to let everyone know that we have officially sold over 1000 Base kits! It was an ambitious goal, but I never doubted it for a second. If anyone has any last minute questions, I'll be keeping a close eye on things today, so feel free to post em up!

What time does the GB end on the 27th? Gotta make sure DD will hit in time, or if I should just go ahead and buy now.

We'll be shooting for midnight (i.e. the 28th), but as long as you can place an order, it will still be open.

It's time... Base + Accents!

Still waiting on final numbers from all the proxies, but we officially passed 1200 base kits!

If you want in on those artisans please make sure to fill out the form in the OP, I'll be closing the form tonight at Midnight EST.

I can't remember if I submitted the form. Would anything get messed up on your end if I just submitted it again?

No, I'll just be taking the most recent entry for any dupes.

Not yet, it's gonna take a little bit of time to verify the orders for all the winners. I've sent the list to be verified to Novelkeys (who will check with all the proxies), and I'll be sure to keep everyone posted as things progress!
