Hi guys,

Did the GB for the US folks begin?
I am not seeing any links or notice from OP.
Am I missing something?

Mate the GB has already ran, keysets produced and shipping out to vendors/GB runners next month. You missed the boat by about 4 months.

Link to 40% kit ran by TheVanKeyboards for those interested :thumb:

09/09/17 update
Haven't heard from our German friends yet, but I have secured a Korean proxy! This will be done by Cocobrais who you may know from GMK Burgundy and some damn cool Korean customs! He guarantees the sale of 75 base sets, 50 space-bar kits and 50 add-on kits (meaning that he'll buy them out of pocket if he doesn't sell that many). This means that MOQ shouldn't be an issue for any of the kits  :thumb:
06/09/17 update
Thank you for all of your input, the final quote has just been put in at GMK! I expect the response to take a couple of weeks. The GB will go up ASAP after I receive the response though! Thank you for all your support so far, I hope this trend continues into the GB so we don't run into any MOQ issues  :-*

Whatttt is up my fellow keeb lovers!!

With its classic beige tones and stylish splash of colour, the 9009 colourway designed by Reuters in the 90's has sure made an impression on this community. So much in fact, that the set is going for insane amounts of money on mechmarket. This really pains me everytime I see it since I absolutely adore simple sets like this and I know I'm not the only one not able to splash the cash on it.

There was a PBT GB on KeyClack some time ago but frankly, it really didn't look the same :( . So I decided to spend some times on getting things set up for another round of 9009. I am in talks with vendors for both the EU and the US, Dixiemech.com and mykeyboard.eu respectively, both of which are great guys and have been super helpful in this process. David from Mykeyboard will also be supplying matching keyboard sleeves and cables on both his site and on Dixiemech, both of which are handmade in Belgium  :) .

I have already put in a quote about a week ago, and am waiting for a response. Don't worry, you won't be paying $180 for a GMK set here folks! The price range I'm trying to aim at is $140-150, this might not seem super low but please keep in mind that the USD-EUR is going down again and that we will be paying all necessary tax, something that doesn't seem to happen much in this community. This can make a 21% revenue difference  :p Either way, all is depended on GMK's quote. Let's hope they pleasantly surprise us :D

I have also put in some time making renders on boards and to show off the kit design.

Tl:Dr:
What? Another run of GMK 9009, the classy colour scheme used on Reuters trading boards .
When? Depended on feedback and GMK's supply, but a lot of work is already done. September seems like an achievable goal.
How much? Depended on the quote we get from GMK, trying to keep it at $140 in the US and 125 ish including 21% tax for my fellow Europeans.


Updated Kit Design
Please consider that since price is an issue not everybody can get all specific keys they want. After going through all advice and feedback I genuinely feel like this is the best balance between the number of keys and cost I can give you. I hope everybody understands that if I added every key all people wanted this would turn into a 200 base kit, and I'm probably not even exaggerating here. Unless there are major issues found in this kit design it will stay as is, tweaking this for ages will only slow down the process of running this GB.

Things to fix, add, ...

  • Launching the GB!!  :D
Thank you all for looking all feedback is appreciated, you have yourself a nice day!
