Small Update

Hi everyone!
Sorry for the little updates in the past month, but I have some updates.

- I've ordered samples from ePBT to start the color match process with pantone colors.
- Still working for finalizing kits. Most kits are ok, I have to work on a kit that I'm still not sure about. When kitting is finalized I will get new renders with updated kits.
  I have to thank konstantin, 40s discord and Keycap Designers discord for the help with kitting.
- I have a collaboration with NerdCables for some Grand Tour themed cables.

My hopes are to be able to finalize the kits and then fix a gb date.

Hey there!

Any chance we could move the extra B from the spacebar kit to the base, or add it to the 40's kit?

40's already covers split spacebars, and making it a big pain to get an additional spacebar kit if all you're trying to do is get that extra B for something like the Prime_E.

Thanks!

Hi, thanks for the suggestions! I have done some work on kitting and i have added the extra B in the base kit. I have to update the OP yet, because i'm still working on a couple of things about kits.

My render man is sick at the moment, when he gets better I will ask him to make some renders of the kits.

Love the 40s kit and the set.

One thing that would make me love it more would be if the 1.5 fn key in the 40s kit could also be a novelty. It would be nice because it would give minivan users the option for a novelty enter but could still be used as a fn key for others.

Very cool work! I included this set in my little Instagram preview of February keysets for a reason - aside from the great creamy color, it also has a unique design and inspiration. The newly-unveiled deskmats are fantastic too! Any hope of smaller deskmat sizing?

Your 40s and Ergo kits on this page seem to have broken Imgur links, FYI.

I love this set, the only request I would have is to offer a kit of just alphas so that I could cover multiple boards without needing to buy more than one of the base kits. The desk mats look incredible as well, I can't wait to get it.

Hi Fedemito! Will there be an alphas-only kit? that would be pretty exciting! That way ergodoxian users would just need alphas + ergo kit and not need to purchase the base kit JUST for the alphas.

Food for thought!

I'm sorry but i won't add an alphas-only kit, for two reasons:
- We are very close to gb date
- ePBT MOQ works on base kit only. For Grand Tour is even more important because they have to make a new mold for a key in the ergo kit ( r4 (epbt) 1.5u mod), and they will produce it if the base kit will go over the MOQ for new mold.

Hi guys, bad news,
I'm sorry to inform you that there will not exists a RAMA collaboration for Grand Tour.
Due to some disagreements regarding details behind the scenes, we had to cease the collaboration.

But i'm going to collaborate with Thok for a couple of metal artisan, that i'm sure you're going to like!
