[IC] Tidal (new renders)
« on: Thu, 14 May 2020, 08:50:23 »
Tidal

Everyone knows of my admiration towards blue so here's to that.

I really liked SA Vilebloom, just not the SA part of it all so I figured to run my rendition of a "gradient set"

Let me know your thoughts of it and if this is something to continue on.

Right now I have been working on it towards the idea of GMK but am not opposed to other possibilities such as PBT. I just know I want to do this in Cherry profile.




GMK Kits







With the addition of a secondary kit you can achieve the bottom here.





These are outdated renders but still give a general idea of presentation.




Please let me know in the comments on suggestions or requests.

Absolutely love this set. I hope to see more blue themed sets coming up in general but definitely want in on this.

Like it a lot! Seconding KAT.

I loved SA Vilebloom, only sold it because I'm not a big fan of SA and had SA Laser on the way... Missing it already :)

Looks nice! Gradient looks a little off because of the different vibrancy of the blues tho

loving this since I saw it on the discord.
Personally, GMK has an extreme backlog that i don't think it's viable to make another GMK set right now.

It isn't meant to be a linear gradient of that sort.

Perhaps if I run with something along the lines of KAT where kitting would be more flexible.

"cool" color, bro!  :)

I think I will wait for KAT ver because it might be possible to have 2 numpad kit: one for regular board and one for "southpaw" board  :))

basically they had to make their own molds to be able to run the sets

Let's stop speculating and being lazy.

Here's an overview of what happened.

About the Hammer "BSP" Round 4 Group-Buy:
Also called CRP R1.

GB thread on Geekhack, GB run on Massdrop.com and in China (Taobao).

1. BSP group buy opened in April of 2018. About $170 per set and a bit for child kits. Plus tax, and shipping.
2. Around October 2018, Hammer and Massdrop announced that BSP basically told them to **** off with BSP blanks. The way it worked was that Hammer would order BSP blank sets and Hammer would take them to dye-sublimate legends on them. That's how all "BSP __" sets were made.
3. Massdrop offered an option for people to either (A) drop from the buy and get a refund, (B) opt back into the buy and proceed with it, because Hammer expected to have a solution. (At this point a lot of people dropped)
4. Hammer offered a solution: they would create a whole brand-new, original production of Cherry profile keycaps and dye-sublimate themselves. In other words, they would own the full production line. This new line was called CRP - Classic Reissue Profile.
5. People who opted back in did so by November 5, 2018, and the buy continued. Hammer announced that those who did would get TWO sets per set ordered. Predetermined by the name of the set they ordered. These were:

BSP Tulip OG -> CRP Tulip OG + CRP Hebrew Green
BSP Tulip GK -> CRP Tulip GK + CRP Hebrew Blue
BSP Arabic -> CRP Arabic + CRP Cyrillic ( Moscow Night )
BSP APL -> CRP APL + CRP JIPink ( Sakura Rain )

6. People received their sets later, like around January 2019.
7. (Mass)Drop sold extras sometime later in October 2019. End of Hammer BSP Round 4 aka CRP R1.

Yeah I love that color, but I think I would prefer all keys that blue/gray color, with just white accents, just like that picture essentially. Maybe something to consider for a future set.

This is super clean. Have always wanted a gradient like this. Will be following closely.

I'm hoping this doesn't run in KAT >_<  Seems I'm in the minority, though!  Is PBT a consideration for you, or mainly just between GMK and KAT?

PBT would be ideal but I don't really like epbt or infinikey so it leaves much to desire

could bother hammer and see if you can get it run in CRP

Always figured Hammer was the "designer" and CRP the manu.

Am I mistaken or is Hammer the spokesman

hammer is both designer and manufacturer

they own the CRP molds

CRP is only a profile

Is profile the correct wording for that?

it stands for cherry replica profile

It's technically "Classic Reissue Profile" - source: https://drop.com/buy/hammer-bsp-classic-beige-pbt-dye-subbed-keycap-set/talk/2245672 -- in other words, a profile meant to replicate the classic, Cherry profile.

I know it says "Classical" but I know for a fact that Hammer meant to say Classic.

Cheers.

nice

Reading Drop's overview, it looks like BSP is the manufacturer and Hamm3r is the designer.  Or am I misunderstanding something?

BSP hasn't made cherry profile PBT caps in years (at least since 2017+- a year) and hammer jumped the gun on that GB

basically they had to make their own molds to be able to run the sets

there's a thread about it somewhere in that MD discussion
Let's stop speculating and being lazy.

Here's an overview of what happened.

About the Hammer "BSP" Round 4 Group-Buy:
Also called CRP R1.

GB thread on Geekhack, GB run on Massdrop.com and in China (Taobao).

1. BSP group buy opened in April of 2018. About $170 per set and a bit for child kits. Plus tax, and shipping.
2. Around October 2018, Hammer and Massdrop announced that BSP basically told them to **** off with BSP blanks. The way it worked was that Hammer would order BSP blank sets and Hammer would take them to dye-sublimate legends on them. That's how all "BSP __" sets were made.
3. Massdrop offered an option for people to either (A) drop from the buy and get a refund, (B) opt back into the buy and proceed with it, because Hammer expected to have a solution. (At this point a lot of people dropped)
4. Hammer offered a solution: they would create a whole brand-new, original production of Cherry profile keycaps and dye-sublimate themselves. In other words, they would own the full production line. This new line was called CRP - Classic Reissue Profile.
5. People who opted back in did so by November 5, 2018, and the buy continued. Hammer announced that those who did would get TWO sets per set ordered. Predetermined by the name of the set they ordered. These were:

BSP Tulip OG -> CRP Tulip OG + CRP Hebrew Green
BSP Tulip GK -> CRP Tulip GK + CRP Hebrew Blue
BSP Arabic -> CRP Arabic + CRP Cyrillic ( Moscow Night )
BSP APL -> CRP APL + CRP JIPink ( Sakura Rain )

6. People received their sets later, like around January 2019.
7. (Mass)Drop sold extras sometime later in October 2019. End of Hammer BSP Round 4 aka CRP R1.

this is more accurate

i think BSP did offer dyesub services at some point and stopped, but that might be a false memory

lightning knows this better than i do

if you're actually reading other people's posts on geekhack in 2020 you're doing something wrong

I'm not sure how this is received but this could be an additional add-on kit for you mono boys/girls if Tidal is well received



Something to this extent.

Oooo, I would definitely like to have that option, especially if it could include a white accent Esc with the lighter blue/gray legend (to match the Enter key).  Thanks for considering the mono, even if ultimately you don't decide to run with it.

Personally I'd be in for the colours of a would be mono set, although I think either gradient or mono will look great in the end. Great colourway either way.
