UPDATE: Granite in currently on sale on PimpMyKeyboard.
Honestly, I had enough of Granite. We had four uber successful batches, everybody got a chance to grab a set by now but it seems I have no control over Granite after all. It lives a life of its own.
There’s still too much interest around the two-shades-of-gray keycaps and many are eager to take advantage of the success of this set. At the point where I thought we could have moved on to the next project I’ve been basically blackmailed: either I run more or someone else will. It already happened to other of my works and I don’t want Granite to pop up on Alibaba with some shady bootleg name (Graneat? Cranite?) and poor overall quality.
I talked to Signature Plastics (the manufacturer) and MassDrop (that sold the last three batches) and I believe the best course of action at this stage is not to have periodic drops of Granite but keep a continuous supply of the beloved keyset. Basically you’ll get Granite as long as you buy it.
So I’m delighted to inform you that starting a few weeks from now Granite will be available indefinitely on Signature Plastics KeyShop. We won’t run any special kit (Elven, Russian, …) as those were limited editions, but we may introduce some fancy novelty every now and then.
Hope this makes everybody happy. Now onto the next project!
I’ll leave it here just because Chinese ideograms are fancy :)
yes yes yes, I’m looking forwards to this.
Thank you, matt3o, for creating Granite!
Wow. It’s about time. I can’t help but feel a little sad that it will be so readily available. There’s something really nice about having a Holy Grail that unattainable.
What kind of price can we expect? I’m imagining $80 but secretly wishing for $200 wouldn’t that be hilarious?
A standard keyboard without too many options should be around $80.
Will all of the kit (except the special kit of course) be available? Like icon pro mods, text extreme mods, bonus pack.
Also is there any chance once in a while you release 1 special kit every few months like MOBA gamer kit or WASD-like for Colemak?
Anyway this is a great news!
Or all 1u RGBYO mod kit (with blue enter) for Planck.
Just leaving a suggestion here lol.
yes, all kits are there.
We will add some specialty kits in the future.
Is there any chance at all that Elven will ever be revisited? I got into keycaps a couple weeks after your Round 4 of Granite ended, I’m a colossal Lord of the Rings fan and I love the way the legends look on your grey set which is beautiful in its own right. I’m sure I’m not alone, plenty of others are probably looking for Elven kits and I understand you may want to keep its exclusivity but I love it so much that I can’t help but ask even though I’m pretty sure it’s redundant/the answer will be no.
Thank you for making granite available regardless however, it’s a lovely set.
Does this include the Ergodox set?
Awesome! I’m so excited for this.
Could you please please ~please~ add a pair of 1.5u Shift Icons for the Ergodox users?
It’s the only standard modifier without a 1.5u Icon key. :( :( :(
Does this include the gamerkit set?
yes, it is included
Does this mean Signature Plastics will finally do something for the horrible, borderline unusable, quality of last batch ?
Or will they just run new batches and try to get away with it ?
SP quality is well known.
This is such good news. Just wish I’d seen this before buying an incomplete (without modifiers) used set. But hey… now I can buy the modifiers from pimpmykeyboard directly (unless they’re out of stock in 3..2..1). Keep up the good work man!
I think it’s good that it becomes available all the time. For many Europeans like yourself there aren’t any other good quality sets in their native language(I know that you don’t use your native layout). And also with a profile that allows much customisation.
But for myself, I’m much more interested in your new projects.
Thanks for all the work you have done for the community!
Do you have any estimate about when it will be released? Really looking forward to it! :)
SP told me in “August”.
Damn that would be great! Thanks a lot for answering :)
That’s a real shame we can’t get the Tengwar/Elven sets. I just came across them and I’m bummed they are no longer available. :(
Any news on when it will be available again?? I need this set in my life.
The heat is on! http://pimpmykeyboard.com/dsa-granite-keyset/
