The Giant Classic Beige Alps Set
So, I've been wanting to do an Alps set for a long time, but with the intention of covering new and vintage boards (with a strong emphasis on the vintage side). There are really a ton of great Alps boards out there, with pretty decent layouts that make for excellent daily drivers, but finding new caps for them is impossible for the most part. This isn't a set made to add "flair" but functionality, a classic colored set to replace old grungy or broken or missing caps. Modern boards like a few ortholinear and 40% boards that are hard to get keys for are also going to be covered (currently working on an Ergodox kit).
This is definitely a work-in-progress still. There are a lot of boards to dig through, of my own and online, trying to find and cover as many keyboards as possible. NOTHING HERE IS FINAL. Kits aren't final, how the kits are split isn't final, and colors aren't final. For those of you not familiar with forum interest checks, this is me telling you to give me your feedback! If you have some keys you'd like to see added please provide images of the boards in question though.
I am still in the process of making sure I can secure a manufacturer with all of these molds, but this will be an OEM profile set more than likely, which also helps keep pricing lower as well.
[Terminal - AT - XT - NeXT - etc.]
[Semi-Modern Compatibility - More Commonly Needed Keys]
[Ortholinear - 40% Compatibility]
Things still in progress:
- ErgoDox Kit
- ISO (?)
- Add NeXT Coverage (ADDED)
- Getting full list of cap sizes available (spacebars, odd stepped keys, enter keys, etc). More may be added after I can get confirmation of what I have to work with.
