made an account just to note - I'm so in for this.


also - will you be offering a version with hot swap sockets?

That would mean 2 different pcbs, making them both more expensive since the moq is pretty low. My guess is that there is only a handful of people wanting hot swap. So I highly doubt it.

Yea sorry no hotswap for this. Maybe if I ever do a future version or something.

Plan atm is to probably do a hybrid MX/alps PCB as that'd be most cost-effective.

This will also likely be pushed to mid-late August release, as I was informed I need to take a work trip in early-mid August.

The indicator area is based on the original Cherry G80-1800 indicators. I'm considering getting some screen-printed polycarb or brass (or something else, idk) badges for the area with indicator symbols.

Interested! Could you give some examples of how the indicator area would look like?

Is there a reason PCB designers don't leave room for us to add kailh hot swap sockets ourselves? That would seem like the best of both worlds. Can solder if you want or can install hot swap.

Probably impossible at this point and overkill, but it would be immensely helpful to put the LEDS on a small breakout board that screws to the top and plugs into the pcb.  Sometimes top mounted boards have to go in at an angle and itís easy to bend the leds in that spot. Might not be the case in the HBCP.

you can't have both hotswap sockets (like the Kailh ones) and solder pads with a diameter small enough to effectively/efficiently solder switch pins. you could always use holtite sockets however

exactly what I did. the indicator LEDs are RGB and you can adjust the color within the keymap file (for now, ideally will get this on VIA one day)

you COULD do like a reversed thing with north facing being hotswap and south facing being normal pads, but you still have the issue of limiting compatibility and that'll be a lot of extra cuts i'd rather not have on my PCBs lol

It has changed so many times though. So "late August" can mean a lot of things. I've seen May, June, July and now August lmao. Maybe I just can't read. Can you blame me for wanting a more specific time frame. Or it could be me just not having patience. Who knows.  :p

yea tru, been delayed a bit bc i've been busy with stuff lol. late august seems the most definite at this point. I actually got the new, deeper bottom piece today. I have yet to check it out, but assuming it's good to go, that's the last thing I need to do design-wise.

As far as an easily available set, you can always look at the kprepublic xda alps set that just came out. They're blanks, but they'd get the job done at least.

That's very good to hear! Thank you very much. I promise this will be the one and only time I'll ask for another release date. I keep thinking I've missed the GB already.

couple more pics comparing the old (silver) and new (pink) bottoms:





i can confirm that the switch pins no longer hit the case when installed. it takes a good bit of flex to make them hit, so some sort of liner would probs be useful with a flexible plate. it also sounds a bit more hollow with the new bottom (as expected), once again which can be mitigated with liner

Not usually a fan of XDA but I actually own that set and itís really nice for what it is.  Very thick caps make for a nice sound signature
