I was having some issues earlier with the drop, my account, and payment issues. While talking to MD I asked what the deal was with all of the sets (which ones were getting made even though they didn't hit MOQ, etc) since I was charged for all of them and got this response

As to the second question,  GMK Electronic Design GMBH is a reputable firm known for quality and design. We will have to see what happens during the manufacturing process. I wish I had a better answer.

So pretty much in line with what has been discussed.

Something else I thought was interesting. We aren't getting the 150 price break for Salty. I showed the guy I was talking to the picture that had the most up to date/recent information about how many/what sets were sold, and what MOQs/price drops were hit.

Show Image


So that picture clearly shows that 193 Salty kits were sold - and that the price break of 29.99 was reached. However, when I asked the guy why I was charged 34.99 I received this answer:

When the drop page was written it didn't really clarify it as much as I would have hoped.

So, there are two additional kits, both in the color "salty" basically two different runs of manufacture.
When the manufacturer has to change from one style or color to another that takes time and resources. That's why they offer the discount when they reach a quantity threshold because of the reduced cost in not having to switch thing up as much. Make sense?    So, for the discount to apply each style/ color would need to hit that threshold. Since one hit 113 and the other 79, neither hit the 150 needed to apply a discount to either style.


It's only 5$ so I'm not too worried about it. Just figured I would share though because it seemed kind of weird.

I just got refunded 5$, so I guess they are staying true to the "one" salty kit with 193 sold.

Just want to share some info.

GMK is in pre production phase. New molds will be produced probably next week and productions will begin approximately in two weeks. So i call it already "IN PRODUCTION" because things are already moving.

Regarding the R0 keys. GMK will pack the R0 keys in separate small trays, so those will be wrapped properly.

Will start production in 2 weeks?!  :thumb:

Does that mean we can expect this to arrive before the estimated ship date of April?

After being in the hobby for close to 5 years, the word "expect" no longer exists in my vocabulary and I feel my life has gotten better for it  ;D

I am using words like probably and approximately for a reason...  :))

If everything goes smoothly the production will probably start in two weeks. Tho i don't think Carbon will ship prior April because the order is quite large.

Well have we seen the samples approved yet? I have not followed for a while.
I believe for Calm Depth sample was approved before GB ended.

There will be no samples because colors were matched in year 2016.

Thanks for the clarification! I am not in a hurry at all, just curious :)
Thanks for the great work. Absolutely loved the bone stuff and salty kits.

I was in for a good bit, all carbon colorway though. Already regretting not going in a little deeper for the bone stuff though. All bone layouts is going to look great.

Guess MD will make them available for a recap at 1.2X or 1.3X, as per usual.

They will look so good on a gray or titanium gray case
