[IC] GMK Minimal
« on: Tue, 12 February 2019, 12:38:10 »
Hey!

Allow me to introduce you to GMK Minimal, a set with minimal looks and minimal cost!



Inspiration

We have a lot of colourful keysets in this hobby with very feature rich base kits. These can be great, but let's face it: sometimes less really is more. Sometimes you don't want a super "loud" keyboard, and many times people pay for a lot of keys they never end up using. Furthermore, white keyboard finishes have been on the rise but sadly we don't have a lot of sets that match this very well. This is when me and Ryan (/u/quaddepo) came together and decided to bring you this set.

Kit design

0



This kit features all keys to cover the most popular layouts in this community while cutting out keys that aren't often used. To keep in line with the Minimal theme we decided on all text modifiers with a timeless black on white colourway. This set uses GMK stock colours, WS1 and CR respectively. WS1 is the perfect white for this set, since it's purer than CP while not being as "in your face" as WS2. This also plays along nicely with the fact that most keyboard finishes are a more dull white, compared to the very bright WS2.

+



If you're using less common layouts, don't worry! We've got you covered with this kit! The + kit adds support for both ISO and numpad users. This kit can also be purchased separately for those of you that just want to cover a numpad.


The vendors

Following the great success of GMK 9009 R2 and GMK Modern Dolch, it would be crazy to not work with these fantastic vendors again. They're all companies run by great people, and together they cover pretty much the entire keyboard market!
  • DixieMech for the US
  • MyKeyboard for the EU
  • DailyClack for Oceania
  • Zfrontier for Asia


The price

We're super excited to hit the price point for this set. The base kit will be $109,99 at the start of the GB in the US and drop down to $99,99 when we hit 500 sold!!!!! Rest of proxy pricing is still TBD, but we're aiming for equally low pricing! At $99,99 it would be a solid $50 cheaper than your average GMK GB!

Please make this happen! I've been looking at the GMK Paper thread for updates to no avail, and Stormtrooper and Pristine in the aftermarket always gets sold ridiculously quickly

Thanks for putting this out. Dope set. Finally hope for a nice new BoW!

One of those is a dead IC, other isn't easy to find (let alone at 109,99 or 99,99) and the other is beige (same colour as 9009 alphas), none of them have all text mods. Obviously this isn't the first BoW keyset, and it probably won't be the last. There also is an obvious demand for both clean and affordable sets, and like I said this will pair great with all the white keyboards coming out.

This might be the first set I buy 2 of, community really needs a proper monochrome GMK BoW that isn't beige like pristine.

Would prefer icon mods or icon+text mods, but honestly will still get at least 1 with text only

Text mods are a bit of a fresh take + I think the uniform look fits the theme very well since you'll always have some all text mods when going with icon.

Definitely a vote from me to keep the text-only mods (with icon arrows of course). It looks so clean!

In the spirit or clean minimalism, any chance that we can get mono legends for the num row and punctuation keys? Not even sure if those molds exist in GMK, and it would probably completely ruin the price point, but it would look SOO good! :P

It definitely does exist In gmk molds but I don't think enough people use numpad to drive the price up for the general buyers, which is unfortunate since I use numpad
