I just sent in my response, and I want to add on to ullr's opinion that while I do prefer the grey mods, I also don't have a huge issue with the current colored mods for the keyset. On one hand, it is nice to differentiate GMK Penumbra with SA Penumbra; on the other hand, the colors seem a little too vibrant on the keys. However, because my order is on its way to me, I guess I shouldn't make a judgment call based off a few photos online.

It looks like we may just bundle all the additional keys as a separate accent kit, #2.

At this point, are we looking at having the white alpha keys? Is it also safe to assume that the accent kit in the original post will be kit #1 and the additional keys as kit #2?

What are your main concerns?

Thanks. I simply want to see what they look like in the wild.

The concerns I have about this thread in particular are what this set is supposed to be exactly. Because it seemed to start of as an accent kit for the Penumbra set, and seems to be turning into a full set with it's own kits.

Is there maybe a chance to just run a gb of the original set, so we can choose what alphas and mods we want?

I'm not sure if you're following correctly.

Sherry had GMK produce full sets of Penumbra, and they are readily available on his site (linked above). Rather than running a GB, sherry opted for paying up front for the full sets, and offering them for sale once he had them in stock.

What this is is an IC to add a handful of keys to make the existing GMK Penumbra set more compatible with other boards, as well as addressing the main concern people had with the set, which was the uppercase bottom row.
People also suggested doing a kit (still not sure if it's separate or all part of one massive child kit) of alternate alphas, which is what the original SA Penumbra has (a set of yellow alphas and a set of white alphas).

Yeah... seems that they put a limited number in stock, probably to make sure they don't say in stock when the stock dries up like has happened before and end up with orders for product they don't have.

Do you guys think we should just include the F & J Bars only on the solarized alphas?

It'll help lower the cost for the accent kits!

I prefer bars all the way, but I would think scoops are far more popular so I wouldn't mind paying extra to have both.

I think having solarized alphas would be nice, but it's not like anyone would buy the overly yellow alphas to recoup some of the original price of the base set.  :(

I'm saying if I buy the base set at $170 and then pay $55 for the white alphas I'd prefer to sell the yellow alphas, but given how most people feel about them I think I'd have a tough time selling.

I like the original alphas and when I posted pics on reddit had a pretty good response to them.

The remaining thing to do:

1. Remove 2.75u Shift (not sure why it's there)
2. Add F & J Bar for Penumbra Alphas
3. Add 1u Fn

The Red Arrows and 6u Spacebar didn't make it.

I've actually been looking at my keyboard with the white arrows and thinking how better it was going to look with them red.

Either way, excited to get the other caps and looking forward to them on my board.  :p

Uh, no.

Penumbra mod colors and red arrows. Like the Esc in this set.
