Thanks for all the feedback, it's cool to see the shared excitement about the colours! I just emailed GMK to confirm all colours, I'll let you know what the updated ETA is as soon as I have it!

Hey!

Very exciting update! I just got the new samples in from GMK!

Below are some pictures comparing them to the old samples, the Pantones and the OG Dolch colours. Please keep in mind that the red Pantone is a metallic chip, which makes it change colour an insane amount based on lighting (just like a car). This also makes matching very very hard.

Picture comparing them with only natural light coming in from a window to the right:

with room lighting turned on (so less natural but more even lighting), also has OG Dolch colours to compare

comparing them to the old samples (new samples on top)

Show Image


comparing the new and old cyan since i just couldn't capture how substantial of an improvement it is (new cyan on top)

Show Image


and finally, comparing the OG Dolch and Modern Dolch colours. Have a look at the original comparison render below, I would say they turned out quite well!

As for the red, as I explained above it's very hard to both capture and colour match. Even though I rendered the set with the official Pantone colour code for this image, I wasn't aware the the chip was a metallic one. Looking at the sample here and comparing it to the renders on a monitor calibrated just now, I would say GMK did a killer job though!

What do you guys think?   :)

Perfection. Let's goooooo!

Amazing, the colours match pretty much perfectly! I didn't see any problems with the previous cyan before. but now that I see them together the difference is clear and you definitely made the right choice getting it remade.

I am excited to get a GMK set with custom colors that actually turned out! This set might end up becoming one of my absolute favorites. What kinds of boards (and colors) are you guys planning to put Modern Dolch on?!

I'm personally not sure yet, I feel like it'd go great on my Moon M60. Might also put it on a prototype of a new design I'm getting tho :cool:

Really excited about receiving this set! I have a Tofu HHKB that is waiting.

This is my first GMK group buy experience, how do extras typically work? I am regretting not getting a space bar kit. Thanks.

Sometimes the GB runner will buy a few extra sets and sell them on their website after the GB is over. Not sure if there are any details on extras for this GB, though.
