[GB] JTK Griseann/Royal Alpha - Last Week - Ends Dec 4th!
« on: Thu, 12 November 2020, 08:22:45 »
JTK Tripleshot Griseann and JTK Royal Alpha
Featuring brand new tripleshot molds
I have a discord that I keep forgetting to post: here
I also have an instagram that I post on randomly: here

___________________________________________________

Q&A
Q: Will these be shipped in JTK trays
A: I know for a fact that the base kit will come in a JTK tray (a value of $10!)

Q: Why is this more expensive than the usual JTK sets I've seen on Novelkeys?
A: These are brand new molds which made these a little bit more expensive than usual.

Q: Why are there a partial alpha set?
A: The extra partial alpha set are all keys that have new tripleshot molds. During the process of tripleshotting, doubleshot versions have to be made. This mean we had 2 options: keep them or throw them away (we chose to just keep them and add them into the base set at no additional cost).

Q: Why is Royal Alpha not all white?
A: I originally had a green mods kit but for our high MOQ (for the base kit) along with other factors made it very hard to justify having it. Now since the MOQ is very high, I have to appeal to the two largest purchasers of this set and both audiences were pretty split. TLDR, high MOQ, sacrifices had to be made.

Q: Why are you running 2 base kits?
A: New molds require a 3000 MOQ, but that can be cut practically in half if we run 2 base kits. I opted for a 2 base kit option since there are 2 previously ran sets that used the same sublegends.

I accidently sent an older render of the base kit to renders, they should be fixing it.

Additionally, most vendors have it live now.

Yup, I can edit it to add the size of keys (and all spacebar keys are convex)

The products are up but not grouped together, should be fixed soon!

Good to know that all spacebar keys are convex, including those 1u and 1.25u etc.

I'm asking JTK and double checking to see if they are convex or not.

Spoke with JTK, everything but the 1U is convex. The 6U is centered and offcentered.

I thought I saw someone mention that the position difference between centered and off-centered was close enough that it could not be done in a single bar (for all MX keys, not specifically JTK). The other mount point would get in the way as you depress the switch.

It will probably take that long or longer.

Here is the breakdown that JTK provided us with (please note that these are brand new molds)

3-4 months for making the molds
2-3 months for production, sorting, qc
1-3 months during that time for Chinese New Year and other delays.

So yes, expect it to take a long time.

I cannot stress enough that new molds typically require a longer lead time than most other keysets.

To be fair, HSA required new moulds for an entirely new key profile, as well as all its legends. With this set, new some new legends are required, but it’s for an existing profile.
