Where to find Topre (HHKB) modifier sets?
« on: Tue, 13 March 2018, 14:23:39 »
Hello, this is my first post (apart from a hello thing), so I apologize if this is in the wrong board or place.

I'm looking for some pastel colored HHKB modifier keycaps; I've looked on KBDFans, but they only have a full set of alphas and a few (not all) modifiers.

I've seen a few people with artisan modifiers but I don't really see where those are bought from. Is there a place that people can go to purchase these? Should I be messaging the artisan creators? I'm just wondering how I should go about this. I'd really love to have some cute modifiers for my new blank white HHKB!

You can try the marketplace here at GeekHack, or /r/mechmarket - either of those will generally have what you're looking for.

Thank you!! I tried posting on there (/r/mechmarket) recently but didn't seem to find anything. Should I just keep trying?

You could. I also found ]https://elitekeyboards.com/products.php?sub=access,toprekeys[url] - I have only heard positive things about their key caps, though I have never used them myself.

I took a look at that link and it doesn't seem like they have many pastel colors, and even the ones they do have that are a bit purple-y are out of stock. Maybe it looks different because I'm in Canada?

Mitchcapped often has raffles for lovely modifiers. You can follow on insta to find out when there will be another sale.

On /r/mechmarket you can find quite a few different makers of HHKB mods as well as people that resell them pretty often. Makers I can think of are KeyKollectiv, AeroKeys, Death Caps (i think), and Mitchcapped. Those are all going to be resin and I think only one or two of them are still actively making mods. 

If you have no luck finding resin mods you can also get dyed mods for a much lower price. /u/crj3012/ on reddit makes dyed mods by the order on mechmarket. I dont know if he still does but I recommend checking that out.

Thank you for your help  :)  I talked with /u/crj3012 and he said that due to ordering he can only do full HHKB dye sets now, so that's a bit too expensive for me. Death Caps also told me that he might have a store open soon! So I can look forward to that maybe. I've also reached out to Mitchcapped.

Again, thank you! This community is very welcoming.

They don't have full sets of modifiers, only a select few

Hopefully more topre caps will be available soon, selection is pretty slim compared to mx.
