Follow this set, and my other projects over in my discord (click below)






GMK Sixes is inspired by T0mb3ry's Umka and GMK Nines. It uses the same colors as Nines (N9 and U9) but in reverse, hence the name sixes.  ;)
This project is originally by Xynerorias back in 2019, but he has asked me to complete it on his behalf.


The kits are all by Xynerorias and have been kept in tact to respect his vision for Sixes. Below is the original description from the IC! :)

Base kit:



I stripped down many things from the base kit as many people don't necessarily need everything and having a good looking and really affordable set is always appreciable  ;)


Calc kit:



You standard numpad kit with everything you need for it, including a double 0. But some grump in the discord who's angry at NumLock for some reason (love you Miguel) proposed an R1 "=" key and I so loved it I added it. It really gives that calculator feeling to a separate numpad !


ISO kit:



Now this one is a little special. As you can see it's quite chonky for an ISO kit but let me explain. As most of you know an ISO kit is always struggling to reach MOQ... when it does. But I also wanted to keep the base kit as light as possible. So instead of having a couple keys in a small kit resulting in an Atlantis ISO (thanks Eski), I opted to make a whole UK kit. In this, you get everything you'd need to make a whole, complete UK layout, which may be preferable to some people, instead of a poor little kit who doesn't know where it stands, and is struggling to reach MOQ.


Smol kit:



Your usual kit for your usual smol boards. Whether it is a 40% or an Alice, this should cover it.


Makeup kit:



So you didn't get GMK Nines. First of all, how dare you? And second of all, I got you! These should quench any thirst of accenting you might have.


Space kit:



The U9 ones are 6u, and one is off-centered. The N9 ones 6.25 and 7u. Not much else to say?


Ogre kit:



This is for you beasts rocking your ergo, you're not left in the dark! This should cover pretty much everything and if it doesn't, what are you even typing on?


The Lost Nines:



Ok, so my man makes dope sets, there's no denying that. But when he made GMK Nines he apparently had a beef with some keys, leaving you stranded and alone, full of despair when you wanted to get that sweet set on your unorthodox board or your Alice. But now those lost keys are back, and even better! You can put Nines on your 40%, or even experience a true UK layout. Or just accent those keys in Sixes if that's your thing.

I agree, it was rough. My priority is to get the set made, and after Umkas sales in February, it was simply too scary to price it at 500 MoQ which would've netted a sub 100 price tag.

The kitting itself is dated two years ago and because our quotes were so delayed, I didn't have a chance to lift potential kitting changes to make it more modern to Xynerorias in time.
I think we look good for having it made, but please know pricing isn't personal greed or something like that.

Been waiting for this set for ages! A price tag of 109eur for such a small base kit is a little bit of a shame though. I was expecting MOQ to be higher

It's happening! Have been eyeing this one for a long time.

Canadians are getting a bad deal on the pricing though. Currently, 110 usd = 132 cad, not 140 cad.

Thank you for the excitement, I feel the same way!

In regards to CA vs US pricing, none of the proxies are 1:1 in relation to each other due to different logistics to each region. Across all vendors, the margins are about similar which may be good to note.  I personally don't know the ins and outs in regards to shipping, import fees and so forth in regards to US va CA.

It's a very pretty set, but the pricing is just too far off. I look at Analog Dreams $125 base kit compared to this and I can't justify it.

Best of luck with your GB. It will be great to see this set on some beautiful boards.

To add to the previous reply, I can try to put it into perspective for you.

Retaining current margins, if this was priced at 1000 MoQ, Sixes would be sold for roughly 80-85 dollars per base kit. That's down 30 dollars, using the same base kit.
I am not running analogue dreams so I can't comment on what MoQ that set, or any other set for that matter uses.
If I speculate wildly, analogue dreams likely isn't basing the base kit pricing at 250 MoQ (like gmk sixes) seeing the history of sales in prior rounds and the absence of the same colorway being ran in PBT just prior/concurrently to the GMK launch by someone else.

Hope this clears up at least slightly that the pricing has nothing to do with greed, it is more a trade off based on expectation. :thumb:

Yeah this sucks, had a feeling it'd happen thus my reply yesterday.

I can't decide on their behalf but order is not placed, try reaching out to them and ask if you can put an order in. Maybe something can be done, but I can't promise anything :(
