[GB] GMK Greek Olivetti - live until 12th of September
« on: Mon, 20 August 2018, 14:52:46 »


Group buy is live now and running until the 12th of September. Group buy links:
EU: https://www.candykeys.com/product/gb-gmk-greek-olivetti/
NA: https://novelkeys.xyz/collections/frontpage/products/gmk-greek-olivetti-gb

Greek Olivetti is a modern homage to the Cherry G81-3011 HBQ, also known as Olivetti KBD 2811 HBQ.  Olivetti boards made by Cherry are known and appreciated within the keyboard community for their rarity and unique blue on beige colour scheme. This board was produced in the late 80s for the Greek market and features a unique sublegend-style. As far as we know only one of these keyboards exists today which was discovered in 2015.

This remake made by GMK uses the original Cherry molds and features full-doubleshot legends, so no pad-printing is used in this set. This keyset is made with the same colours as GMK Blue Alert. The keys use the standard L9 and U9 beige colours, the legends and the accent keys use V4.

Small adjustments were made to modernize this keyset: the modifiers were upgraded to a classic icon mod style which we all already appreciated on GMK 9009. Also the sublegend on the W key was fixed. In the original set Cherry made a mistake and used the key which is not part of the Greek alphabet. This was corrected to the proper small final sigma ς. This key uses a new custom mold to assure a real greek look.

The base kit supports most popular custom layouts like winkeyless, 65%, 75%, true HHKB layout, 78 and 96 key layouts, 660 and 1800 boards. Also ISO-UK support is included. The space bar kit offers blank keys for the popular 2,25u 2,75u and 1,25u split space bar layout and blue accent space bars in 6,25u and 7u.

Thanks for the support  :)

So the MOQ on this should be 150 sets for base, and 100 for the spacebar kit, right?

Here my numbers, along with some outdated numbers from the other proxies.

NovelKeys (Updated September 3)

Base - 8
Spacebar - 4

zFrontier (Updated August 27)

Base - 7
Spacebar - 5

CandyKeys

Base - 0
Spacebar - 0


I will be purchasing around 15 extras on the base kit. Typically zFrontier will have a similar number. Not sure on CandyKeys. But we definitely have a ways to go on this to hit MOQ.

I really would love this set to be made but seems like it will be a no go with such low numbers which is a shame. Too many other great GB GMK sets running concurrently now overshadowing this one.

That's a bummer. I was looking forward to getting a set.
Would there be bigger demand for just the Greeked alphas?
I could use multiples sets of blue and black letters to complement Blue Alerts and 9009s.

So sad that this got cancelled. Any chance it'll come back to try again for MOQ?

I second would have loved this to hit MOQ.
