Ah nice catch. Unfortunately I had not seen that. One of those is supposed to be the darker blue color. I'll see what I can do with GMK, but requesting another quote an render may change costs and take some time.

Does this mean the GB will be postponed from June 4th?

If we're doing last minute changes, could this spacebar be made the right colour?

I'll be picking up core instead of deep water anyway, but found this strange.

I agree. Spacebar should be either mods grey or turquoise.

This may have already been discussed but is the spare spacebar in the core set 7u? This doesn't seem to be written anywhere so I just wanted to make sure before I ordered. Thanks!

Yes, he said there will be 7u spacebar in base set. Just haven't updated the pictures yet.

Yes the 7u spacebars in core and deepwater are the bottom left in both kits.

The darker navy 7u spacebar like in this photo..



Seems to only be available in the Deep Water kit, yet this render is mostly Core? And that specific spacebar isn't in the spacebar kit. Was hoping to make my set look like this too, but I don't know if I wanna shell for two base kits just to do so. :(

Yes this is true, unfortunately I did have to make some tough calls when putting the final kits together to not drive up kits costs too much. However, if we do happen to exceed expectations I'd be happy to put together a small "stretch goal" kit of several requested keycaps to include as a thanks for the support, but of course, I don't want to get ahead of myself and we'll have to see how the GB goes.

Well, it's missing from the GB form as well, without so much as a comment.

I am working on the GB thread currently. The images will be updated to label the spacebars to clarify.

And here I thought having an accurate final render of the kit before going to GB is a common thing to do? Sorry I really want this set, but I just want to make sure I'll get what I order, and I need an accurate final render of what is going to be sold. Some random words here and there of fixing this key, adding another key, etc. is not gonna cut it for me.

Thanks for this point. The kit sets you see on the GB page are the final versions.

Nothing will be subtracted or changed from the kits on the site. They ship as advertised. If anything is added it will be for free and of no cost to the customer, on our dime, as a separate bonus item.

TheKeyLabs website is hijacking system scrolling, adding some strange latency. I don't know who owns the website but that is a Top Ten Do Not Do thing. I literally cannot select the kit I want, because the site scrolls either higher or lower.

The spacebar situation is just so weird. Like they are just really weird and and really inconsistent. Both the regular base and the deep water base.

Despite my best efforts overlooking the kits there is a lot going on organizationally in the development.

Those who have purchased the GB will be notified, but the replacement of a duplicate key with the correct one hopefully shouldn't upset anyone. Thanks for your feedback.

The Deep Water kit render includes two 1.5U R2 \| keycaps in mod color.  One of those should probably be alpha color.  I appreciate that you shouldn't drop keycaps after you start sales, but whether the solution is adding another key or replacing one of those two, this would be a good one to fix.

So would replacing an alpha-coloured enter with a normal mod-coloured enter, in the Deep Water kit. Or even going two accent enters and no mod-coloured enter, like the Core kit.

Pantone chips are $18, hopefully Keylabs at least has those in hand. It's somewhat of a formality, and I trust Keylabs more than most with getting colors right, but it's always nice to see the color chip and not just the computer screen representation.

Yes I have ordered Pantone chips and hope to have them in soon. I'll be working with the team at GMK along the manufacturing process on colors and will ideally have Pantone chips to show during this GB. I appreciate the vote of confidence.

Ah nice catch. Unfortunately I had not seen that. One of those is supposed to be the darker blue color. I'll see what I can do with GMK, but requesting another quote an render may change costs and take some time.
And here I thought having an accurate final render of the kit before going to GB is a common thing to do? Sorry I really want this set, but I just want to make sure I'll get what I order, and I need an accurate final render of what is going to be sold. Some random words here and there of fixing this key, adding another key, etc. is not gonna cut it for me.

Thanks for this point. The kit sets you see on the GB page are the final versions.

Nothing will be subtracted or changed from the kits on the site. They ship as advertised. If anything is added it will be for free and of no cost to the customer, on our dime, as a separate bonus item.

So you're going into GB knowing full well that you have wrongly colored keys in the kits? That's a whole new level...

Despite my best efforts overlooking the kits there is a lot going on organizationally in the development. Unfortunately the single key had been missed on inspection, luckily it was pointed out and will be changed with no cost to the customer. Those who have purchased the GB will be notified, but the replacement of a duplicate key with the correct one hopefully shouldn't upset anyone. Thanks for your feedback.

So the kits are final, until they aren't? Sorry but what? You change opinions and how the kits are handled every few hours...

A mistake was made on our part, and at the time we made a logistical decision to keep as is with the options available at the time. Fortunately, we were able to resolve this particular issue with what is a better solution in our eyes and the other vendors involved with a net benefit to the end user.

The design process for this first set has admittedly been a learning process for sure, we do make mistakes and are exceptionally grateful for people to catch things that we don't and help us improve the set for everyone involved.

If this is a deal breaker, I do understand, and maybe would suggest not buying this set.

I've tried to ask multiple times during the IC but never got a proper answer from you. Just want to make sure I got the final message before pulling out so I am not missing out on anything. The spacebar issue will not get addressed, correct?

Hey there apologies for not addressing that earlier, I'm hopping between platforms answering things best I can. The spacebars as part of the Core/Deep Water kits exist in the following formats.

2 x 6.25 spacebars, one in standard GMK format matching the alphas and the other acting as an accent piece. The accent piece is an aesthetic call made for those interested in some of our earlier renders and to continue the initial theme/feel of the Hammerhead design.

1 x 7u spacebar in alpha color

1 x 6u off centered spacebar for more non traditional layouts.

For whatever color there is a 6.25U, there should be 7U of the same color included in the base kit in my opinion. Say if I want an accented navy 7U spacebar, the only way I can get that key is from buying a whole Deep Water base kit. Do you see now the problem we've been trying to communicate with you throughout the IC?

The set is now available on zFrontier. And why on earth the deep water kit has $5 extra compared to core kit. Not to mention the quite high inclusive shipping cost as if it tells me to order from other vendor instead.

so i'm a bit confused after i've seen the prices at candykeys, the novelties kit is 80 euros but only 62 dollars, while the base kits are basically the same in dollar/euro with 138/140. is this correct or a pricing error at candykeys?

edit: will the deskmat also be available at candykeys?

When designing this core set, trying to cater to as many layouts as possible is always on our mind. It is of course difficult to create larger kits when we do get so much feedback about the sizing and the price from people with standard TKL or likewise layouts. Some items didn't quite make the cut at our discretion and the dark blue 7u spacebar was one of those items. That being said, I would be happy to part with the 7u kit from my Deep Water kit if you're interested down the line.
