Hey everyone, Welcome to the custom keycap buy for April at Massdrop. This month, we'll be running @t0mb3ry's GMK Eclipse. GMK Eclipse was inspired by its namesake and will be produced by GMK - a community favorite. For those who are new to the keyboard hobby, GMK keycaps are made via original Cherry tooling in Cherry profile. To many purists, this is the ultimate typing experience. Many feel the combination of MX switches with Cherry profile keycaps reflect the original intent of the designers at Cherry. The set itself with its subtle blues and accents make for a very attractive package - as usual @t0mb3ry's eye for color created something special and I can't wait to see GMK Eclipse produced. Previously, @t0mb3ry has often pushed keycap set designs forward with unique goals - from corrected Cyrillics alphas with GMK Yuri or the reproduction of Cherry Profile Row 0 and Row 5 with GMK Carbon. This time, he has taken a step back with a simpler design, less kits, and more concentration on colors. Some process related notes - if you have an active order that hasn't completed yet and want to make any adjustments to it, please just cancel the order on your transaction page and re-order with your desired kits. This will ensure there are no payment errors when the drop ends. I hope you enjoy this new offering as much as I do and thank you everyone for your support!

Seems I've been charged for the base kit and the 40s kit that I wanted. Should I take this to mean that the 40s kit is actually getting made?

I know it's frustrating. Our system is not set up to add people once a buy has concluded. But I'll tell you what. I joined the drop myself and bought a base kit, novelties, pale blue accents, and purple accents. When these keycaps are fulfilled and you still want it, I'll sell you whatever you want out of my own order at group buy pricing.

That's super duper nice of you. 😁 Seriously above and beyond! If policy and technology prevent a good customer experience, then having people like you make up for it. Thank you. However, if you get that UI fixed, that'll be good enough. I'll take my chances on the open market. I'm looking for a new set for my Planck anyway so hopefully I can help somebody else out who changes their mind. Or somehow I'll end up with Laser GMK or DSA (I know SA is coming but I like low profile).

Sorry - I am not really familiar with massdrop too much. What happens if the base hits MOQ, but some options like the numpad and orange accents don't? Does the order get processed for the base and it just drops the options or does the whole order get cancelled?

In this particular case the kits which hit the MOQ will be made. In case for other kits which did not hit the MOQ i am not really sure. Massdrops usually buys the extra kits which are close to MOQ and sells the leftothers/extras in their recap sales. That of course depends on the resale value and probability of the particular kit.

As far as I know they will give you the chance to amend or cancel your order if one of your kits doesn't get made. However, you won't know what will get made until after the drop ends, as even those that do not make MOQ may still be made if "Drop" decide to cover the difference. Your best bet is to back what kits you want as soon as possible, then cancel when you are given the option to after the drop ends (if one of your kits does not get made). I don't work for Drop though so take that above advice at face value.

@T0mb3ry Why no specific language keys for ISO users? Instead of dropping an ISO-enter standalone you could add a drop bag with a mix if international ISO language specific keys (UK, French, Portuguese, Spanish, DE, Nordic and Italian). If costs were the concern it would be better to loose the '40s and novelties perks and add just ONE MIXED SET with all the above. Granite set has such option. Why don't you? I'm tired of letting good sets such as this one go by for the lack of my original PT-pt dedicated keys...

That's right. If international kit was available then my very optimistic estimate would be around 15 kits from 100 MOQ.

Quick I am fucking hating what the hell they've done to the website, especially as I was used to how it was for years comment. Back to the drop. I am really concerned that there is hardly any one that has joined the drop. Wondering if we going to hit good price points or not.

Can anyone tell me the exact kit I need for the kira? It has 1.75u shift and 1.5u alt and 1.5u control on the right side, the rest of the kira is as normal I believe but this would be my first key set for it so don’t want to get it wrong.

You are correct about the keycap unit sizes. Image 1 / 18 in the carousel has the exact layout of the Kira96, it just has gaps between the different sections. You will need the base kit and num pad kit to fill the Kira96.

This would be my first time buying custom keycaps, really looking forward to it. Just want to make sure, would this set be compatible with my Leopold FC660M mechanical keyboard? For example if I get the base kit I wouldn't need something like the additional space bar kit? Thanks :)

Does the 40s kit include a 2.25x and a 2.75x size spacebar? I'm planning on building a Quefrency Keyboard for work with this set, and I'll need one of each. If it doesn't, I assume the spacebar kit includes one of each.

How would these look when backlit? I recognize it won't shine through the legend but I am curious as to if there would be any light leaking and how would that look. Also how readable would they be in a semi-dark room?

I was considering getting a couple of the accent kits to use with WoB and Nines, but it becomes extremely poor value when shipping is factored in.

So that I understand how this works; if the min 250 listed units is not met, this drop will not happen? Cause it only shows that they have 170 so far. Thanks

That's correct. However, there have been instances in the past where, if it's somewhat close, MD will buy the difference in order to reach MOQ then sell those at a later date (Re-cap events). It's also not uncommon for drops like this to pick up pace toward the end of the GB period. If I had to put money on whether this runs or not, I would bet on it happening. While I doubt price drop milestones will be met, my big concern is over sales numbers for several of the add-on kits. C'mon Orange Accents!

Place your order for all the kits you'd like. If a kit in your order isn't made, Massdrop will contact you after the drop end to let you keep, revise, or cancel your order. And of course, no one will be charged for kits that aren't made. Realize that if nobody places their order out of fear MOQ won't be met, the odds of reaching MOQ are greatly reduced.

Would I be able to use these for the alphanumeric keys on the ergodox? I don't mind keeping the modifiers standard, or sourcing those elsewhere if need be (although i certainly wouldn't mind it if you added the modifiers to this set :) )

Of cours you can use the alphas with any set which is using N9 as base color. There are plenty of sets which do use N9 as base color. For example SKIDATA or Terminal and i think Eclipse alphas will complement those sets very well.

If you don't think that 120 is worth it for something as simple as key caps you are sourly mistaken. GMK caps are by far the best caps i have used and 100% worth the steep price, would recommend.

Hi, new to DiY keyboards here. Can someone explain to me what makes these ABS keycaps over $100, compared to backlit PBT keycap sets like the Tai-Hao Paradise set that just dropped? I’m very enticed just by the color scheme alone, and would consider this drop more if I understood the pricing better

The keycaps are thicker, manufactured in Germany, and are higher quality in terms of fit and finished when compared to a cheaper set thats produced by Tai-Hao. GMK sets are typically designed by members of the community, rather than mass-produced, so that also contributes to the price tag. Since it's ABS it will shine over time, but its worth it if you appreciate the quality of design these sets have. You don't really get backlighting with these sets, and generally people who are really into the hobby don't really care much about having backlit caps as much as they care about the design. I think backlit caps interest a lot of people at the start (myself included) but then they gravitate more towards keycaps designed with different colorways or themes in mind, and having backlighting typically would work against the overall design. I wanted to touch on this part, mainly because I didn't initially understand why someone would want keycaps without backlighting - I mean how else would I be able to appreciate my Ducky's beautiful RGB backlighting? But I took the plunge, and never looked back. ...why did I type such a long response? I don't know....
