[IC] Sky Dolch - Phase 2 [NOW LIVE!]
« on: Mon, 19 September 2016, 18:57:36 »
www.kbdist.com/sky-dolch

Some keys are missing in the mock ups such as Stepped Caps Lock and a full RGBYO kit which we are aware of.

218 keys for $199.

Let me know what you guys think are missing from this set.

i prefer Win8 or Code or diamond in double-shot to win 98 in pad-print.
i am fond of magenta and yellow and other color legend MOD, keep them on.
MOD could be departed from base kit ? someone may have bought R1 SKY DOLCH. someone may like both base and mod.

I still don't know a whole lot about mechanical keyboards beyond the very basics, so something like this, while seeming excessive, at least will have everything I need for whatever I end up getting myself into.

A concern of mine is that when I finally start purchasing parts to put boards together I will not know enough not to get a cap set that doesn't work with the board I am trying to build. This seems like a nice, albeit expensive safety net.

We should definitely include both F & J in this round...

Yes, we will look into Win98 (Double-Shot) or Diamond. I'm not a huge fan of the Windows 8...

Thanks for your words on the Magenta and Yellow keys :)

Bought... in my mind. I had a feeling this day would be coming. That is a lot of caps, but if I was going to buy separate mods for it anyway then it doesn't seem like a bad deal.

Edit: I see 1u  "00" but maybe a 1u "0" if we are being very thorough.

I'm admittedly new to this community but why exactly is this being offered as just one super large kit instead of as separate child kits? Why not allow what mods people want instead of forcing someone to buy the entire set.

It's really difficult from certain manufacturers to produce Child Kids. It's a lot easier to make the rest of the kits a reality by making it in one larger kit. Previously, we had about 65% of the keys for $180. I'm just trying to give a pre-order/early bird special to people who wants to pick up a Sky Dolch set!

Please consider the windows 8 key. I understand this may not be to the liking of some people but at the same time people like myself may not be fond of using the win98 key on such a beautiful set in 2016.

I know you are trying to make this set a endgame set by including over 200 keys. This seriously would be my end game if it included that.

Right? What is the point of buying literally 2-4 times as many caps as necessary for most boards. Even the normal 117 kits cover most everything, I understand it is easier and "faster" for GB hosts to have one big kit, which seems to be the trend lately, but damn. Catering to the masses != catering to literally everyone.

Edit: but admittedly 218 keys for $200 seems to be one of the best key to $ ratios I have seen from a GMK buy lately.

I'll have a hard time spending $200 on a single set for a while since September has been so packed and October's looking busy as well but I'd say that's a pretty good deal for almost 220 keys of an awesome colourway; it's hard to cater to everybody and it does look like the trend lately is to have these kinda huge single kit buys, I'm pretty neutral on whether or not it's "better" than running multiple child packs but they're definitely nice for newer members who are unsure of what boards they'll be getting in the future - it's nice to have a (albeit expensive) safety net to fall back on as was mentioned by another user a few posts ago.

Good luck with the GB Sherry! Going to be hard for me to squeeze out the dough for this one but I'm in for Hyperfuse for sure.

As an owner of R1 Sky Dolch, I can say that the R1 Sky dolch had enough keys to fit my needs.

But I did get it @ r/MM for retail price rather than GB price.

I would like windows 8 key instead of windows 7. windows 95 would be fine too if it's doubleshot instead of pad-printed. vendor-neutral diamond is good as well. so to reiterate, any of these for the windows key is good: doubleshot windows 95, windows 8 or diamond.

I prefer if there were less keys bundled but <$1 per key is good and I feel like excess keys can be sold in the classifieds or on /r/mechmarket

It would help a lot to see a render of all the keys but since this is a preorder, I assume that the renders are coming.

Added: Why are some of the pink modifier's textless (i.e. the shifts)? Also, will you add the hhkb backspace and fn for the pink modifiers? There is no pink 1u windows keys, I guess instead there is 1u control and 1u alts? I am not sure about those two... much rather have the 2 1u pink windows and add pink fn and hhkb back space  :p :p

I think separating the magenta mods, but also R5 for the original Sky Dolch owners. I generally prefer these big sets, but in this case I already have SD and just want the extras.  However I'll buy it either way.

Edit: Consider this a vote for any non-OS-specific mod keys. Code, blank, diamond, a turd (as someone else suggested); doesn't matter to me, so long as it is logo-free.

Please do Code or diamond in double-shot for the Windows keys. Even a Win8 key is better then the Win 98 key.

I agree with previous posts:
Win8/10 logo > diamond > 'Code' (or any other text) > blank > WinXP logo > whatever logo > a turd >>>>>> Win3.x/9x logo.

Everything else looks very nice.

EDIT: Hm, I'd also prefer the Modern Menu logo (square with 3 lines inside). Nowadays the 3 line symbol aka hamburger is the universal symbol for 'menu'. The old Menu logo (with the dropdown and the mouse cursor) looks very outdated (same as the Win 3.x logo!).
I get that some people like their keyboards to look retro, but for me (and maybe more people) cleaner, modern symbols are better and more beautiful.

Yeah... The Dolch look is a lot better imo. I've been waiting to do this since we got our first Sky Dolch set in... I really screwed up on the R5, but I was going after what Triumph Adler offered.

I might have to separate it. Gotta include all the previous buyers!

I don't mind the large base kit. Frankly, I don't even mind the mods being a mandatory part of the buy. At $200 this is a great price. However, I do think it is beneficial not only to those who don't want the colored mods but also to those with Sky Dolch kits already to have the mods be made available separately. Buuut if this means that I'll have to pay more to get the colored mods and the base kit separately I may not approve.

Yeah, I might have to split it up. I would have just made these sets straight through the manufacturer, but I wanted to gather feedback on this Phase 2 before we move forward. I think I know where most people stand.

I like the set, but for $200 it would have to include things that actually benefit me, like Planck support or even Colemak layout. I don't care about 1800, R5, or 6u spacebar.

For win legends, may I suggest uppercase "CODE" from GMK TA Royal Alpha? They stand out better. Or if you can, maybe go for a new legend altogether like 'system' because I don't think 'code' is that well received (even if I do like them).

Hey Sherryton!

I am super excited to see another run of Sky Dolch for all the people wanting the set who can't find one. Always happy to see more availability for cool GMK keysets.

I have one request though, I would love if there was a compatibility/color kit with all the keys not included in the original group buy for existing owners. I would love full R4 and R5 support as well as the color pack without having to buy another whole set.

Either way thank you so much for running this GB!

Will there be a possibility to have gmk ship a few sets to Germany/have them stay here. It really doesn't make any sense to ship them to US and back to Europe and pay customs twice...

Will there be a possibility to have gmk ship a few sets to Germany/have them stay here. It really doesn't make any sense to ship them to US and back to Europe and pay customs twice...

Maybe someone here get a big shipment and sent them on the way from here?

The thing is they don't pay VAT (Mehrwertsteuer) when they order to the US, so the stuff that would be shipped within Germany would have to be done more or less in a different GB which is a lot of hassle.

Gmk won't ship them separately to Germany, but if you live near them take a chance and contact about possibly picking up your set (it can't hurt).

Hyperfuse and Sky Dolch don't really appeal to me but I'm still happy you rereleased/are planning on rereleasing them for others.

The costs increases by 20% if you have it ship within Europe due to VAT.
Hey Sherryton!

I am super excited to see another run of Sky Dolch for all the people wanting the set who can't find one. Always happy to see more availability for cool GMK keysets.

I have one request though, I would love if there was a compatibility/color kit with all the keys not included in the original group buy for existing owners. I would love full R4 and R5 support as well as the color pack without having to buy another whole set.

Either way thank you so much for running this GB!

Thank you for your interest! We're looking on splitting some of the colored sets up. Still have a lot of shipping to do for HyperFuse, so the project is on hold.

Thanks calavera! I miss you :)

I'll definitely see if I can split it up.


Thanks for considering, my suggestion would be for the base kit to include full size/1800/WKL and ISO (basically like all the keys here: https://i.imgur.com/oFMFpFH.png) and then have a separate kit with all the coloured/alternate mods. I'd imagine existing owners of Sky Dolch would like this option too!

Would you guys want to see a Dolch. Esc or Windows in the original font?

Could you show a mock-up to better illustrate what you mean? Like the Serif font of the Dolch logo?
