Update 04/21/2018 -

It's finally time everyone! GB for GMK Violet Tendencies will be opening Sunday, April 22nd and running through May 20th! Kit layouts are directly below this blurb, and are set in stone. Apologies to those of you whose changes I couldn't implement, there was a lot of compromises that had to be made to make everyone at least a little happy. I'll add the link to the GB page when it gets approved :)

Base kit - Will cover a vast array of boards; $160 at MOQ, $150 at 250 kits


Space kit - Self explanatory; $35 at MOQ, and lower as we go.


NA will be through Dixiemech https://dixiemech.com/shop/gmkviolettendencies
EU will be through mykeyboard.eu https://mykeyboard.eu/catalogue/category/group-buys/gmk-violet-tendencies_46/
Asia will be through zFrontier


--------------------------------------------


Hey folks, I've been throwing around images over on /r/mk and totally failed at doing the same over here. I've gotten a fairly good response over there, so hopefully can get some more insight here as well. Final kit coverage isn't 100% finished yet, but will be quite soon. Here are a few renders by the wonderful Janglad;

 Edit1; Colors; N9, DY, GR1

Render atop a Mechmini 2 (VIM caps are wrong, will be fixed)


TKL Render


Fjell Renders



1800 Renders



HHKB



To do:
Finalize kit coverage
Try to stay cool in this ridiculous heat wave
Finish talks with all the powers
Drink a couple a lotta beers
Figure out how to make it as cost effective as possible while still maintaining the coverage I'm thinking of.

Update 8/28/17 -
We've got an EU proxy set up. Which means faster and cheaper shipping for you folks. 40/45% kit will now include 8 extra (2 for each row) 1u keys, maybe with the proper text mods on them, maybe blank, waiting on pricing quotes. Will also include a 2u purple and a 2u gr1 for the ortho folks. Kit renders (and fixes) will be done soon!

Update 12/4/17 - It seems my estimated GB will not be February as I'd hoped. I failed to discuss the time frame with the vendor that is helping me with it, and he's picked a different set to help run before mine. Seeing as how that set will be somewhat similar, I'm going to have to put mine off for some time, so as not to flood the market with too many purple themed keysets. To conclude; this set will still happen, but it's going to be put on the back burner for a while. Apologies to everyone who's been eagerly following me, and checking in weekly.

Update 01/26/2018 - Not much of an update, but for the sake of transparency (of which is sometimes lacking in our hobby), I'll keep y'all up to date. Not much has progressed. I've not had any luck finding someone to do renders that I can afford (if y'all know someone, send em my way ;) ). The vendor that was chosen seems to be full up for another 4 months at least, so I'm not certain if we can still go that route. I'd really like to, but this needs to happen in 2018, preferably the first half of 2018. So there we are! Not a good update I realize, but, as I keep saying, this will happen! Hope everyone had a good holiday, and has started a happier new year!

Update 03/28/2018 - New kit design is done. New vendor has been chosen. I'm happy to announce that Dixiemech (of GMK 9009 fame) will be running the GB. Thank you all for following through all this! We'll very soon have estimated launch dates, and official renders and pricing. For obvious reasons, I'm not going to speculate. I guess all I can say (again) is stay tuned! It's finally happening!

Is there a real life example of DY on N9?  N9 isn't as dark as those renders make it seem, so I just wonder how much the DY will actually pop on it.

4 things:


  • It is possible to add the extra purple F5-F8? 
  • Also what about 2 blank white R4  2.75 and 2.25 to cover most of the split spacebar keyboards around? 
  • For the Vimcaps, please remember this time to make the homing in the same method, i remember other sets had different homing for the vimcaps of the same set, for example deep hooming for the F and line-homing for J (it doesn't make any sense)
  • Found the EU proxy?

I really like this set  ;D

I actually wouldn't mind a spacebar kit in general since DY spacebars aren't in stock anywhere. A kit like Nautilus would be perfect really. Do purple in all sizes and white splits.

Any chance to throw a couple extra 1U keys in to support a plank/preonic? I know you have to make some tough decisions here but the MechMini is something you are showcasing and that supports the ortholinear layout. I would definitely be in if this supported ortho layout!

Yeah, I know a lot of kits are due out soon, but with GMK's lead times quickly approaching that of SP's as time goes on, I'm likely going to launch very very soon and hope for the best.

But, we've got an EU proxy now, so I'm pretty excited about being able to get shipping costs and time as minimal as possible for those outside of north America! :)

I'm terrified for when GMK takes as long as SP/SA keys.

I actually wouldn't mind a spacebar kit in general since DY spacebars aren't in stock anywhere. A kit like Nautilus would be perfect really. Do purple in all sizes and white splits.

The problem with a standalone space bar kit is that it wouldn't reach moq, and I don't have the spare funds of a big company to be able to buy up the remainder of the moq. I'd love to do one, but might just have to settle with the GR1 space bars of the base kit, and the GR1 and Purple split spaces in the 40/45/ortho add-on kit  :(
