German Electronic Design GMK Modern Japanese Desko

Inspired by a community member's keyboard.

Enjoy: "I'm here to introduce my new set : GMK Modern Japanese Desko. Most people know that I'm a topre lover, I don't deny it, I always wanted to make a set that would be a direct tribute to a topre keyboard/keyset. That said, there was always 1 specific topre keyboard that I loved, the norbaforce owned by nmur. I asked his permission on that, and he was keen to let me use his very personnal colorway to make this particular GMK set ! I decided to tweak it a bit to make it more "modern" by having icon mods and more flashy colors instead of the standard RGB Desko look."

Enjoy has returned with his new set, this time by GMK! - There are 5 kits available in this set; BASE KIT - The base kit is numpad-less, but offers all the compatibility you can think off : WKL, HHKB, WK, split backspace, basic ISO aswell as an extra B. LATIN ALPHA KIT - Some people prefere the more OG desko look, just don't like "weeb alphas" or maybe just want an extra alpha kit to mix and match with other keysets considering that it's WS1 ! HHKB KIT - Eiiti Wada is the father of the HHKB, since this set is related to a topre board, I had to do it, and it does look super good so why not ? SPACE KIT - Having some colored spacebars is important for some people. This set also include the necessary kits to use specific layouts such as Alice. and then of course the NUMPAD KIT.
