What are the international kit contents? Will it come with ISO-IT support?

Final kits. Base, International, and Ortho add-on. The next step will be getting quotes for each and doing some color sampling.

Also, have to add a 1.5u alpha colored pipe key to the base set

please read the previous posts for renders. the base kit there is not final here (i've added 3u and 6.5u spacebars), but the intl/40s are. i'm not really sure what exactly iso-it contains but hopefully it's in there. it's the same intl kit as 9009

Personally, I think if you can separate the color mods as an individual kit will be better.  But that's just my 2c.

Nice price. I'm still in.

If you can be arsed, you could add a colvrak kit. But I bet you can't be arsed, and I bet there's nowhere near enough people that want it.

Are EPBT homing keys still scooped and barred at the same time? I really wish they would just choose one or the other, this colorway is still pretty tempting.

Is it too late to ask for an light blue R4 Fn key for split right shift users?

Edit: I guess it’s actually R1 as per the mock-ups

Was hoping that the base kit would come with a 1u shift like EPBT 9009 did. Might have to pick this up either way though!

Yeah ima add the TU2-colored Fn key, not sure why it wasn't added in the first place lol

Also working on maybe breaking out two more kits: the colored alt/ctrl/shift pack, and a spacebar pack with the weird sized spacebars and TU2 versions

I like that the base colors are less contrasting than dolch. Love the icon mods and the tweaked RGB kit  :thumb: Interested!

Consider replacing the useless R2¹ '@ key in the base kit with a \| key. Whereas the '@ is both already included in the international kit and useless on its own without the 2" key, the \| is an alternative to #~ for the key that goes in the ISO enter “pocket”.

ISO enter takes the spot of the standard ANSI \| key, so it only makes sense to put the \| next to it (and, indeed, that's where a lot of ISO layouts have it). It actually makes even more sense than #~ because then you don't have any duplicate (~, #) or missing (\, |) legends. That's why I think it should be an option, but other than that, mostly the fact that '@ is taking up place for no good reason.

¹R2 in EPBT row notation, R3 in standard row notation.

EnjoyPBT Slate (formerly GMK Slate, which was formerly GMK Concrete)

Show Image


Update: 6/25/2018: We ain't dead. Working on getting to run through EnjoyPBT with help from KBDFans.

This is Slate.

The name Slate is a reference to both the color of the set and the fact that you can mix and match this set with others for unique looks. Using the shades between 9009/Muted/OG Cherry sets and the Dolch family, this GMK keyset provides a rock solid base on which to customize.

Also offered alongside EnjoyPBT Slate, Cartel is offering PB modifiers.

PB draws its inspiration from the mid-90's Packard Bell logo:
Show Image


The three colors, GMK V1 and TU2 and Pantone 2726C, will be featured as an add-on to the main set, similar to the CMY and RGB packs.

Color Codes:
  • Base: 2B
  • Mods: Pantone P 173-15 C
  • Legends: CR

My idea with this is to create a relatively cheap, universal set in stock GMK colors. My thought behind the somewhat boring black-on-grey color scheme is that the set could be easily mixed/matched with alphas or modifers from other sets, or look good on its own. I drew some inspiration from OEM boards that have similar colors, like some of the Leopolds and Varmilos.

With RGBYK and CMYPK, I think a re-run would be useful even though they're available in simpler kits from retailers currently. The Esc pack would compliment them nicely, as well as go with other keysets with their simple colors.

Future plans:
  • Get some renders done
  • Finalize compatibility
[/s]
  • Approach GMK for their renders + interest

To add:
  • Windowed caps
  • RGBWMYP enter/spacebars?
  • Think up some cool combos of keysets to render
  • Other stuff probably

Pricing:


The GB will be run through my company's site, cartel.ltd. Cartel is a new mechanical keyboard company I'm a co-founder of (alongside two others), and we're striving to bring some exciting and new products and ideas to the community.

EU proxy is mykeyboard.eu, AS proxy is monokei.us.



Update: 6/29/17 late at night

Decided to switch to a two-tone scheme rather than one. Looks a lot cooler IMO.
Trying to decide between CV and N6 for the yellow tone, CV is classic and has been done but N6 looks slightly better to me.
Got some prelim renders done with both text and icon mods.

Decided to go with Pantone 1235C for the yellow. In between N6 and CV, looks fantastic IMO.

Update: 9/14/17
After a long summer and some prelim communication with GMK, I've finalized the sets I'd like to run. Today I've emailed them asking for pricing and renders of the final kits.

Updated to V2 of final kits

update: 10/24/17
99% ready for GB. Pricing and final renders of 3/4 kits are on hand. Waiting for an update to the TU2 spacebar pack, adding 2, 2.25, and 2.75 convex spacebars.
Other notes:
Removed Win7 logo caps, now only Code caps will be offered.
Removed 1.25u menu icon key, now only the Menu text key will be offered.
Added R3 1.25u Fn key for smaller layouts.

Update: 10/26
Added pricing, kits are final.




Update: 6/25/18
I decided to finally talk to KBDFans about running this with EnjoyPBT after their success with 9009. Reworking kits slightly and we'll see how it goes. No more CMYK kit.
