The color grey.
The color black.


I wanted a black set that looked better than WoB.
The set is a combination of a CUSTOM black color slightly lighter than GMK CR and then stock GMK 2B.
Please refer to the color comparison below.

Love how clean the colors look, this is the type of thing that would work on absolutely beautiful on any board.

That being said, please consider adding a kit for 40's compatibility, it'd be criminal to not see this on the great variety of 40's boards being made in recent times, including those in IC currently!

Make sure to fill out the form! 40s kits often fail to hit MOQ so its inclusion is unlikely without feedback. Thanks!

How does this custom lighter black compare to N9 or the black used in GMK Noire?

Definitely interested, along with a solid base kit- Here's hoping that the slightly lighter black matches certain cases to a tee.

Haven't picked up WoB yet and after this I probably won't have to. That being said, I'm not a big fan of how bright and garish the accent kit is. I think softer colours would complement the soothing grey/black base kit a lot better. Very excited for the GB!

Pictures are never a good way to gauge colors accurately but it does look very similar compared to the physical color sample on my desk. I'd say it's a safe bet.

From the color comparison, the black looks lighter-than-CR, and darker-than-N9.

This might help folks,

Thank you for this! This is a great comparison and is accurate to what my physical GMK and custom color sample looks like. I can confirm the black is right in the middle of CR and N9.

I already have GMK Dark, GMK Nines, and bought GMK Stealth, but I will still buy this set. In fact if I saw this earlier I would probably have skipped the Stealth. I have way too many black/gray sets but that's just my color of preference.

Just noticed the base kit has a 2u shift, but no second 2.25u shift in the base or any other kit. I think a second 2.25u shift has a lot more use than 2u shift?

Please consider adding an R4 1.5U Super (or two), and an R4 1.5U Fn.
Yes, please! My 75% has 2 x 1.5U to the right of the spacebar, which I also use as Super and Fn.

Just noticed the base kit has a 2u shift, but no second 2.25u shift in the base or any other kit. I think a second 2.25u shift has a lot more use than 2u shift?

Fixed. Thank you for bringing that to my attention.

Right when I say "no more GMK" they PULL ME BACK IN.

I'd love to see a 1.25u space key in base (but I see that it's in the space kit) and also UK ISO somewhere, but I accept that these wishes are probably fanciful.

This looks super clean, but the accent colors kinda seem out of place since they are so vibrant.

Also inb4 Black on Grey keyset

Agreed with this. I like the grey accents, but the others would be improved by using be more muted colours imo, or just have bright legends on dark caps.

Thumbs up for full Alice Support in base, but I am not a fan of removing the numpad in favor of it.
If pricing is of concern, I'd propose raising the MOQ of this set to get a better quote. Neutral, "<color> on Black"
sets will do decently well, and for vendors they are a very safe bet to stock up on extras on, since it will look good on most things
and there is 0 chance this will come out scuffed as you stick to stock colors. If you look at the recent GMK Aurora Polaris GB (another CR set),
that colorway sold almost 1600 base kits, half of which are extras. An attractive 1000MOQ pricing should be achievable with this too, especially if the icon-escapes are
relocated into the trashcan, where they belong

Edit: Wrongly assumed base color was CR due to the set name and me not reading properly. Since it's still very similar to CR, my point about the sales potential of this set still stands. Form filled, GLWIC!

I don't see a R4 1U Alt key.  Is it possible for this to be added?

The set is actually using a custom black color that is between CR and N9. It is a little bit confusing at the top of the screen but I'm going to emphasize it more. But yeah the odds it comes out scuffed are pretty low since it's still black at the end of the day. Regarding a higher MOQ, 1000 is obviously ideal but it's up to the vendor to make the final decision so the kitting would obviously be somewhat dependent on what MOQ this set is priced at. The icon escapes are actually quite popular according to the first 100 form repsonses but the IC hasn't had enough exposure that I am comfortable making any kitting changes yet. Thank you for your response!

I think the base kit needs at least 1 R4 1u Alt key.

Agreed. Adding to the base kit.
