Is there an eta on when this will go up on kbsfans?
Unfortunatley not, hopefully soon though. We are making some minor changes to the bezels, font, and some other sizing changes (there were some issues).
When thats done (and if all goes well), we should be ready for it.

Yeah, I have seen this one. However, I am interested in the re-designed version after the feedback was collected.

So we are in the process of getting the new font authorised. Jkao has edited the font and made the bezels slightly smaller with very slight curves on all edges and corners.
The second sample along with small samples of each colour will be made pretty soon.

Great to hear you're still on track. Would love to wait for it but due to the lack of pics for decision making and funds for 2 keebs I will need to go with the M65-B Rama.

Will follow the GB though and maybe double tap once it's out. Best of luck to you two.

Again, both Jkao and I have been busy with life. I'm trying my best to sort everything out by the end of the year. The new design has been finished for a while now, however we have just been waiting on Wei (kbdfans) to answer some of our questions. Now that he has done that, all we need to do is to;
1. send the new design to Wei and get it made
2. choose the purple colour (reliant on the manufacturer to quickly get it done)
3. send the keyboard to the custom packaging warehouse and get the packaging made
4. finally if all is well, we can make the GB public
The main things that will take up time is choosing the colour and the shipping time from Wei's warehouse to the packaging warehouse
I hope that helped.

Thanks, Dion

Hi everyone. The design is going to be sent to KBDfans to hopefully make our last sample on Thursday. And Wei has a new purple anodize so I was wondering which purple you like more.

1. New Purple


Or

2. Old Purple (referenced from Tofu)




If you like the new purple comment 1 or if you like the old purple comment 2. This will help us move forward into the final stages of setting the GB up.

Thanks, Dion.

2: I'm looking for a board that the second round of Taro will look nice on, and I think I prefer how close the old purple is to the alphas.

Just a quick update. We have send the design to wei and he is going to make the final sample. The pcb has been finalised. The packaging is fully planned out (not done yet though). The sample is going to take a while to make unfortunately, as Chinese New Year is coming up and the factories close early. Hopefully wei can finish it before then, but if not we will just have to wait.
I have 2 questions. Do you want a full polycarbonate/acrylic version. And also which purple colour do you like more (shown in previous post).

Thanks, Dion.

$250 USD for the standard case with PCB. Itís all in the original post. But there have been some minor changes in the finer details

So the top part of the case is aluminum, and then the bottom is frosted acrylic? Is that to allow RGB to shine through?

Never seen a melody case before, so apologies for being such a novice.

As i said in previously, due to Chinese New Year and the fact that the factories are close at this time, we are not able to finish the sample until the factories open again.

I am very sorry for the consistent delays. But the warehouses were supposed to open today from Chinese New Year. But due to the unfortunate outbreak of the corona virus the warehouses are estimated to open in the next 2 weeks.
*this is only an estimate and they may open sooner or later*

I hope you can understand

Have been searching hard for the last couple months for a 65% kit that I want to go in on for a first build. I already have all the other parts but didnít want to settle on a case I didnít really like. Think Iíve finally found the one!

It's top mount, but the previous renders dont show it.
