[GB] Massdrop x Zambumon GMK Serika Custom Keycap Set
« on: Tue, 01 May 2018, 13:43:18 »




Massdrop Group Buy!




Available kits

CORE

Composed by 146 keycaps, this kit is the starting point for everyone, and provides great coverage for
many boards including Nemo, Uniqey’s C70,  Leopold’s FC660 & FC980, TADA68, 96-key layouts, as
well as winkeyless boards. All of them in both ANSI and ISO layouts. The Core kit already comes
with  2.25U, and 1.75U SHIFT keys. One 7.00U and two 6.00U spacebars (one with a centered
stem and the other one with an off-centered one) have also been included. The set will come with a
custom packaging.







40s

This add-on kit covers 40% keyboard layouts and some 60% such as the GK64, Minorca, Sebright, JD40, and
Planck (both in MIT and GRID layout). 40s comes with many accent keys as well as 1.00U
and 2.00U convex keycaps.




MICONS

This add-on kit features a minimalistic set of doubleshot modifiers designed by MiTo. It provides enough keycaps
to cover 60% and 65% (including the C70) boards both in ANSI and ISO layouts.




GEOMETRIES

This kit features a set of geometric designs with impossible geometries. The set also includes
a Massdrop and Uniqey keycap.




ERGODOX

The Ergodox kit provides a set of blank keycaps that allow you to cover
and Ergodox layout. The kit includes six R2/3 2.00U keycaps.




SPACEBARS

This kit consists of a set of dark grey spacebars including 1.00U and 2.00U convex keycaps; R4 1.25U,
1.75U, 2.25U and 2.75U keycaps, 6.00U off-center and center stem, plus 6.25U and 7.00U spacebars.

Desk mats should have a different drop page, as they aren't made by the same manufacturer and Novelkeys would be in charge of shipping.

I'm a big fan of the alphanumeric keys being included with the ergodox kit.  :thumb:

I didn't realize that was going to be the case from the description on here. Might want to add that detail for clarity, they did on the MD page.

The Ergodox kit will be a test just to check whether or not it's a good idea to have them included on that kit. It should make things easier for Ergodox users and maybe it would allow to have a kit like this with modifiers with legends in the future. Crossing fingers for this one  ;D

Definitely keeping fingers crossed.

Time will show whether or not it's a viable approach, but I do feel as if it's a better idea than offering ergodox mods as a standalone when alphanumerics aren't available as an individual kit. Having to drop the money on a 'base kit' that includes about 100 keys you won't/can't use is a little much.

Legends are tough. Trying to accommodate a lot of different keys seems like it would be cost prohibitive for a GMK set. I didn't participate in the IC for this, but I might have liked micron ergodox legends. Sure, they have specific meaning, but I feel like having a semi-ambiguous symbol that's mislabeled would be less of a bummer than having your control key labeled as caps lock ... well, maybe in a future buy.  :D

Need to think about the ErgoDox kit, would rather not have duplicate alphas. Otherwise will be a definite purchase. :)

We've to make sure the desk mats don't have any issues before having a drop, and they are on Mike's way. There's definitely going to be a group buy for them, but it will take a little bit.

I haven't said that.

Grey is N9, modifiers are Pantone 116-C, alphas are custom, as those are slighty beige.

I think you should possibly add a render with one of the charcoal spacebars on a keyboard to the main drop page, to help promote the spacebar kit.  Just noticed that there aren't any.

So the legends are N9 on something L9/CP-ish for the alphas?

All colors are custom so depends how far you can stretch "ish".

Well if it's not N9 I would be curious if we can expect more or less contrast.

That's not correct. The legends are N9. Accents are N9.

Is taking a little bit longer than what I would have expected for GMK to send me the samples, I'll keep you up to date if anything happens.

Massdrop will try to get all the kits done, that's for sure but it might be a little bit harder for the Ergodox one.

Thanks for the info.  On a side note:  I wonder how many people went for the 40 kit just for the split space bars?

I’m terrible—with travel abroad and being super busy I missed the massdrop deadline.  Glad the GB went relatively successfully.
