Introduction:

The current GMK White-on-Black sets available on Drop and Originative have great coverage, but still miss out on providing coverage for many different layouts. The idea behind these kits is to add some more compatibility options to this iconic set that aren't currently available, that we have been seeing in recent extension kits. The keycaps are CR with WS1 legends, matching with GMK WoB of course.

When?

The GB will run from Monday 23rd March through to Friday 24th April, lasting roughly a month.

Vendors and Pricing:

EU: MyKeyboard

40s: 44 EUR
Colevrak+: 50 EUR
R0/R5: 54 EUR

NA: NovelKeys

40s: 45 USD
Colevrak+: 52 USD
R0/R5: 55 USD

OCE: Daily Clack

40s: 86 AUD
Colevrak+: 99 AUD
R0/R5: 105 AUD

CA: Deskhero

40s: 69 CAD
Colevrak+: 80 CAD
R0/R5: 84 CAD

Kits:

40s
The 40s kit aims to give coverage to as many different board layouts as possible not included in the original kit. This kit gives 40s, split and ergonomic boards compatibility as well as having 1.50 backspace for split backspace users, and a 1.25 BoW tab to make GMK Minimal compatible with staggered 40s.



Colevrak+
This kit adds compatibility to many different typing layouts.


 
R0/R5 Compatibility
This kit adds R0 and R5 compatibility to GMK White-on-Black for a full cherry profile.




(full cherry profile; currently most kits have two sets of R1 and R4 instead of R0 and R5)

Extra:

My friend nvmbra is running a separate mini GB for those who want additional text modifiers for the 40s and R5 kits. These are limited availability and will not ship together with this GB.



For more information and the order form: https://forms.gle/b3WtEmcYpJ9JxSUE7

Renders:

Keyboard: 45-ATS by Abec13

Keycaps: GMK Zhuyin with GMK WoB modifiers (R2 Esc, R2 Back, R3 Tab, R3 Enter, R4 Hyper from 40s)




Keycaps: GMK WoB (R2 Esc, R2 Back, R3 Tab, R3 Enter, R4 Hyper, R4 2.25u and 2.75u spacebars from 40s)







Keyboard: UD_40 by GOLDWORMS and mykeyboard.eu:

Keycaps: GMK WoB (R2 Esc, R2 Back, R3 Tab, R3 Enter, R4 2.75u and 1u spacebars from 40s)

Thanks for the update @dvorcol, will you be posting this weekly now?

Do these numbers include every proxy?

I would like to post the gb link on the Colemak forum, reddit, and anywhere else it might get noticed.

I'll post new graphs every time I get new numbers from ttom.  I think every proxy shares their numbers with him.  But in my experience proxies never send updates simultaneously, so usually some proxies are outdated.

Please post the GB link everywhere you can think of.  Anything to help meet MOQs is good for all involved!

Graphs don't include extras.  I have it on good authority that all kits are looking pretty promising considering extras.

Can I get some advice from the folks who've been around a while? I wasn't aware of this so I ignored the WoB set. Is it like a standard keyset that gets run periodically or did I miss my chance?

It does get run periodically, so you havenít missed your chance to get it.

There was just a preorder open for them, with shipping starting yesterday so you could easily locate a set on mechmarket probably. Bear in mind these add-ons will be shipping towards the end of the year (or early next year) so you have plenty of time to locate that set even if you order now

Sweet, thanks guys. So in case I can't find it for a fair price in the meantime, in the past has it been at least once a year? From what I gather there's unlikely to be any other Colemak opportunities for a while, gotta have patience.

Is that 1.5U Fn key not for R4? I haven't used 40% or other boards with non standard layouts so I'm not too familiar with the kit. I just want it for a bottom row to put right of spacebar.

it's r3. if you put it next to your spacebar it'll be a different profile to the surrounding keys

Very glad that all kits will be made regardless of the amount of orders, only still surprising how few Colevrak users there are, switching is a pain and you might not become faster, but some words just type so much more satisfying. ;D

People aren't going to switch because, besides this kit and a few earlier kits (big designers have already suggested that colevrak will no longer be supported), GMK sets aren't going to include colevrak. GMK/designers aren't going to include colevrak because not enough people use it. That cyclical circle of failure is going to keep the sets low

The sad thing is, this GB is going to be exhibit #1 in the trial to kill Colevrak support for GMK sets. "Look, you folks couldn't even make MOQ in a dedicated GB, with the most basic colorway. And some of you even bought multiple kits." Going forward, we'll have to rely on profiles that have different MOQ structures (like KAT) to get Colevrak support.

You know I understand why doubleshot legends are so difficult to get over the line, but I donít quite understand why dye sub should also be so challenging. That annoys me more than gmk or doubleshot caps since I feel like itís simply a lack of effort or desire to support colevrak or other odd legends.

Well, I'll say regardless, I really appreciate ttom running the GB and giving us the opportunity. I have only one BoW set but had no problem getting two kits to show my support. I'm glad we all came together in solidarity and got us at least over the 100 mark.
