[IC] GMK 3077 (Previously Brown on Beige)

GMK 3077 (Previously Brown on Beige)

I've decided to overhaul this IC with new sample colours from GMK. I've also taken all the feedback and changed the kitting slightly to better accommodate for everyone's needs. Hopefully most people will be happy with the new kits :')

The inspiration for this set was the OG Cherry dyesub keycaps from the NCR G81-3077SAU, that had faded to a nice brown colour.


IC Form     Discord

Base Kit



Hangul Alphas



Num Row



Spacebars



Colour Codes

Alphas - Custom colour matched
Mods - Custom colour matched
Legends - RAL8017

I sat at Geonworks with a GMK colour ring and his NCR G81-3077SAU comparing the two and we both came to the conclusion that CB and L9 more closely matches the NCR.

I originally planned to run 3K alphas since I really like the colour contrast but decided to go with the more original one instead.

Let me know in the IC form if you would like to see 3K alphas instead. Photo will be in the form.


I ended up purchasing the Dyesub keycap set and sending GMK the physical samples to colour match off. When I got the samples they were a little off so now I'm waiting for the 2nd round of samples.




Vendors

Mekibo - North America
Cafege - Australia
Geonworks - South Korea
Maamaadei - Malaysia/Singapore
Oblotzky - Europe
Prototypist - United Kingdom
Typo.works - Taiwan
ZFrontier - China
Aiglatson Studio - Thailand


Pricing

Base - $115USD
Hangul Alphas - $49USD
Hangul Num Row - $35USD
Spacebars - $25USD


Renders by Masje_

Horangi60 HHKB



Horangi80 WKL



Horgo Ergo TKL




G81-AH

I'll also be releasing a limited number of these fullsize keyboards and sell them together with the GMK set.
If there's demand, I'll increase the number of units.
Please let me know in the IC if you are interested.

Brown accents? Brown numrow? I'm in without it but I think there might be a few of us who would roll w a brown alert look on a beige board.

I love R0 and I'd buy a kit but I'm one of a very small subset of people.

Everyone who thinks the pricing is high should remember what MOQ 250 pricing used to look like. Base kits were more than this.

Very cool. Love the inspiration behind the project. As other people have said I do agree that 3K might be the best option to go here when it comes to the alphas, and maybe to fit with the theme more, replicate the keycaps on that NCR board as someone else said, if it is possible. I do think the price is a bit much for a beige set, so if it can be done I would love to see the price lowered down a bit or make it worth the price (such as maybe replicating the NCR Board keycaps, but that would probably make it more expensive if the price is already at 135).

stock with silent reds | Pretty cool looking board, the silent reds are actually good, they are smooth and I don't mind the mushiness (it's not even that mushy as well). the layout is pretty weird, but is useable. will probably mod this in the future. maybe a pcb and plate swap, change the keycaps to something dolch like, and also spring swap the springs in the silent reds.

this looks really great. im in as long as you keep R5 bottom row and double consonants for the hangul kit. gl!

+1 to matching legends to OG NCR, but its not a deal maker/breaker for me personally. 3K> too.

Thanks for this, I'll try my best to match all the legends and side prints to be inline with the NCR.

Maybe controversial take, but if it helps to get the price down skip the windowed keys. GMK's pad printing has been really bad lately, and I'm someone who loves windowed caps.

Very cool idea otherwise, I also prefer K3.

There seems to be a few different groups of people interested in this set for different reasons, I fall amongst the brown lovers and would LOVE to see brown accents or brown alert style number row. Like some said before me, brown keyboards are gaining in popularity and this set would be a match made in heaven for them.

Considering this is imitating NCR Dye Subs, why not run with a PBT manufacturer unless it's for R0/R5 and that's a requirement if so, hit up CRP/Hammer?

Also, idk if I'm in the minority or maybe i didnt let my NCR sit in the sun long enough but did 3077 legends turn brown when fading?

It's been a while since I've checked back on this post but the set is going to run guaranteed. I'm hoping for mid to late Q1 2024.
I've read through all the feedback and comments and will try to accommodate for everyone.
I'll check back in by November or December with a revised kitting that will hopefully satisfy the majority.
Thank you all for your patience.

KKB legends are inconsistent. Some are thick and some are thin, the kerning of modifier keys not consistent. Some caps got their legends misaligned vertically.

and I don't believe KKB color matching. KKB violet alert was supposed to be U9/CP, but it actually came out closer to L9, rather than CP. For stock colors of GMK, I have full trust in GMK.

I prefer the sound of GMK(0.1mm thinner than KKB)

Some are thick and some are thin
-the second "ac" from "Backspace" is fat
-"PgUp" is thick, "Pg Dn"is thin
-"e" from "Home" is thin
-"d" from "End" is thin
-"s" from "Insert" is thick
- "P" from "Pause" is thick
- "u" from "Pause" is partially thick

The kerning of modifier keys not consistent
- "T a b" can be better
- "Pg Dn" must be fixed (see "PgUp")
- "p" from "Caps Lock" is low
- "F 2"
- "F 9"
- "5" from "F5" is lower than "F"
- "Ente r"?

Some caps got their legends misaligned vertically.
- "Print", "Insert", "Delete", "End" these legends are not centered vertically. A bit higher
