« on: Tue, 12 May 2020, 12:45:51 »

Proposed Kits



Core | MOQ: 250

Lux features a large Core kit, which provides layout coverage for standard and winkeyless full-size, 1800, TKL, 75%, 65%, FC660-like layouts, or 60% keyboards. Some notable inclusions are 1.00u, 1.25u, and 1.50u Lux keys; accent Esc, Enter, and Arrows; convex 2.00u, 2.25u, and 2.75u keys and second B for ergonomic keyboards such as the TGR Alice, or AI03 Meridian. The kit also features UK-ISO layout support as well as a second Tab key so you can reuse some of the modifiers if needed.




Space Bars| MOQ: 100

Additionally, we are also offering a space bar kit that extends Lux’s layout support by including two 6.00u spacebars, allowing us to cover HHKBs, Gok’s 7V, and Cherry G80-1800 keyboards. The kit also includes accent space bars for standard and split keyboards.

I think this color combo will pair great with a black/brass case.  I've seen a lot of people concerned with the color change from the original gold but honestly I think this will turn out much better.  Other "metallic" plastics I've come across tend to come out looking quite dull, and need to be paired with a warm color like red or the result just ends up looking boring.  This brighter yellow will pop a lot better over black and draw the eye more effectively, which I believe this "luxurious" set is meant to do.

like gateron PBT? ink black is kind of a broad term

CR is about as dark as it gets for keycaps

also you can add "nice" to the "what people are saying" section

I said "ink black" because thats the description of the color from Zambumon's IC thread, I believe.

EDIT: Went back over the IC thread and looks like CR is darker than the black (RAL 000 15 00) Zambumon chose for Lux.

While I have mentioned 000 15 00 before, please do not take it as the sole candidate for this set, small adjustments might be done if I feel the colors need some tweaks.

Is an 11 month turnaround normal for a GMK set like this?

Sorry to sound impatient, but that seems like an awfully long time.

From mid June 2020 (when the purchase is made) to March 2021 we have 9 months period. We are giving a realistic timeline based on their production queue and delays caused by Covid-19.

The set is expected to ship from Germany on or before March 28th, 2021
