Goddamn, how can a keyboard become so beautiful.
I was hesitant with buying blanks for a while, but damn I'm happy I did. Them being cherry profile, instead of OEM as I'm used to, definitely feels different. But damn they're pretty.
Now I just need a new set of beige caps for my keypad to match. This hobby is making me poor.

>> No.54132336

Screw matching, go for variety and get something more colourful.

>> No.54132416

I can't think of any colors I'd like for keycaps. The only color that could be cool would be green or blue legends on white keycaps, but that doesn't exist for ISO layout, and it would also not make sense for my keypad to have legended keycaps.

Just a recommended starter keyboard if you don't have enough coin for an old Quickfire Rapid and also want LEDs underneath of every key. No, these are not official Cherry MX switches, however it is still a /decent/ keyboard.

I used that thing for quite some time before getting into mechs.

It's a good keyboard, it even has an aluminium body and it's nice and low-profile if you're into that. If you want something that's compact and not a mech I can certainly recommend it, though they are a bit expensive.

Because, I'd have to get custom legends for them, since I've programmed them to work the way I want them to. It's not a numpad, it's a macropad rather.

You don't have to get technically accurate legends, but novelty or retro things. Look into the Round 5 leftovers, or basically any custom set from SP - the hana set on MD has all kinds of novelties, standalone function kits, etc.

>All I find from gateron is PBT blanks in cherry profile, I already have a keyboard with blanks, I'd rather have some aesthetic legends on this one
Shadovved just finished a groupbuy at geekhack. He said he will have some extra sets by the time gateron delivers the order, so, keep an eye. Same for the beige sets.

>>varmillo white keycaps
>These look quite nice, but I'd rather have top legends that are either dyesub or doubleshot, fuck laser etched legends
Varmilo does have dyesubed sets. You can find them at aliexpress and taobao. You can also try contacting hendy from mechanicalkeyboards.co.id through his site chat or on geekhack, he probably still has some sets.

>can't find any beige sets that don't look dead boring
Enjoypbt beige cyrilics look pretty gud. Take a look at shadovved enjoypbt GB, there are many nice sets. Also, imsto is running a similar GB right now.

I've known Red for quite a few years and basically the gist of it it's that he's autistic and needs to have someone else to make fun of around him at all times. He used to be a hacktivist child but somewhere along the line that stopped working out so he moved from Texas to Colorado and now he's a failure there as well. He's typical "for the lulz" levels of annoying but the only difference from most /b/-tard tier people is he can't move on from anything and get new material, so he's just stuck recycling shit over and over from the past.
