6. FAQ

  • What blue will be used for the production run?
    It will somewhere along the lines of the current blue renders which is lighter than the blue prototype. The target colour should resemble this. Please note that it is incredibly difficult to colour-match anodisation.

  • Why can't we purchase the black PVD logo and weight as an upgrade option?
    The main reason for this is to streamline the quality checking and packaging process. We are expecting the QC process for PVD to be much more difficult than the raw steel parts and would like to deal with that separately.

  • Any brass plate or weight/logo option?
    All the options have been locked in but the plate files will be released after the group buy closes so you can get your own plates cut in the material that you wish.

  • Can we purchase the plate foam separately?
    Each plate that you buy from the extras page will come with its own plate foam. I'm looking into the possibility of selling these separately through Deskeys for those that want to get their own plates cut when I eventually release the plate files.

  • Do you have a sound/typing test?
    I don't think providing a sound test in isolation is useful but the plan is to send the final round of prototypes to streamers which have done other tests in the past which will give you a point of reference for what this will sound like

  • Can you explain the mounting system?
    This is primarily a PCB mounted keyboard. Instead of fixing the plate to the chassis and having the PCB float, this reverses the arrangement and has contact between the PCB and chassis and the plate sits on top of the foam.
    The little legs, dubbed "leaf-springs", provide flex that gives a softer typing experience.


  • What are the differences in plates
    Aluminium is stiffer than polycarbonate and is my preference for clicky switches. I would recommend the aluminium plate for first-time builders because the switches stay in place better while building.
    The polycarbonate flex plate is an attempt to make a plate that is as close to a half plate as possible but still providing the tight switch cutouts to keep switches straight.
    At the end of the day, it all comes down to your preference on which would be the best for you.


  • If I buy the kit, what else would I need?
    You will need Keycaps (ensure that it has 1.75u shift in the kit), Stabilisers (1x6.25u, 3x or 4x 2u depending on layout choice) and switches.

  • Will this work with holtites/millmax sockets?
    I can't verify whether they work or not because I haven't tested it

  • Do you have a discord server?
    I don't have the time to maintain a server but there are vendor servers that are dedicated to the 7V at Daily Clack and Deskeys.

Very happy that it's finally happening, the IC felt like it lasted so long.

I placed my order and I'm hoping for a speedy delivery. I presume this is conservative time-frame and given it's open and for 3 weeks, I'm super interested in seeing numbers ordered once GB closes.

Also, the three prototypes you have don't include the gray, right?

I prefer the 6u bottom row aesthetically (not a big fan of mixing 1.25u and 1.5u mods); where is a good place to source a 6u stab wire from? If memory serves, some old Cherry 1800/11800/11900 boards have them, but I was wondering if there is anything out there that wouldn't require me harvesting a full board for just one stab wire.

I'm very excited to join the buy! I'm torn between blue with silver accents or the completely murdered out black look, currently.

If you look on the included items in the kit, there is a line item that says "1x Genuine Cherry 6u stabilizer," so it looks like they are going through the effort of sourcing the 6u for you.

Been out of the loop with mechanical keyboards since I picked up my M60-A at the end of 2018. Glad I decided to come on here the other day! :D

Picked up the e-white colourway, but forgot to pick-up a spare PCB... Think I'm going to put Serika on here, but GMK Peaches N Cream looks so clean.

In for E-white with the PVD weight and logo. The Kuro/Shiro shots just look too good and plenty of other sets such as GMK Bleached or Sumi would also look great with the black contrast. Can't say I haven't been incredibly tempted to get a black one too.

There are only a couple of units and Taeha is on that list.

Kuro/Shiro will be coming back this year but with some alterations. Epbt had a hard time making the black accent keys so most of those are out but I might be able to keep the novelty.

Any chance you run kuro/shiro in gmk as well? Actually, I just want it in ABS instead of PBT, so even JTK will do :p.

Not really because it's PCB mount. If there is a need for it, I'd consider running a GB for replacement PCBs in the future, much like what Fox Labs are doing.

your choice, but Bleached's white (WS1 I think?) is brighter than E-White, if that helps. I bought two pcbs. One for Dark and tactiles, and one for Masterpiece. Haven't decided what to use with Masterpiece yet, most likely clickies.

How does the stainless steel weight's durability compare to other more common keyboard materials like anodized aluminum and pvd coated brass or even uncoated brass?

Is it easy to repair cosmetic issues like scratches or scuffs on the stainless?

the pcb will, im sure, support both pcb screw in and pcb clip in stabs. which is what 99% of modern pcbs support.

How does the stainless steel weight's durability compare to other more common keyboard materials like anodized aluminum and pvd coated brass or even uncoated brass?

Is it easy to repair cosmetic issues like scratches or scuffs on the stainless?
Stainless steel is less durable than the anodised surface of aluminium but more resilient than raw aluminium or brass.
There are stainless steel polishing kits and you can buff out small scratches.
There are also stainless steel protection sprays but these look to be pretty expensive

Will the prototypes be sold at some point? I imagine they won't, but I am very interested in the really dark blue vs the lighter render color.

Can't release this information, sorry.

I won't be selling the prototypes.

Proto's will not be sold. I am sorry but we have plans for them.
