This was my first choice of keycap set to use with my TX-CP... I feel it compliments the colors of the case. Tell me what you think in the comments.
Blog: custom keycaps
Hope you guys enjoy the video and hopefully it provides information on how this combination sounds like
Being in the keyboard game means not only talking/dealing about different keycaps and profiles. It also means dealing with different type of plastics used with keycap manufacturing. Aside from ABS which is the common plastics used with your keyboard or stock keyboard keycaps. There is also PBT which has a different texture and also has different qualities compared to ABS plastic. Common reasons people want to use pbt is because they do not shine as fast as normal ABS plastic, they are not as susceptible to fingerprints or dirt accumulation compared to ABS. If you want to know a lot more about PBT plastic Wikipedia has nice information about it.
This modern beige set that I have came from Originative it is basically like Gateron think pbt or maybe enjoypbt. 1.5mm thick and the feel to it is quite nice. PBT is nice to type on from time to time but if you follow this website you would know that I am more on thick abs specially the Signature Plastics SA profile keycaps. Nonetheless think PBT like these are nice for someone who likes cherry profile keycaps.
Here is what my modern beige looks like and what came with the kit that I got
I've had this JTK Purple on white for quite sometime now and only last week I have decided to slap in on my KBD75. Since I sold most of my keyboards and I only have the KBD75 to play with, I guess it was time to run the set with the custom keyboard that I have. It looks ok to me but some people might find the color combination odd or colors might not match.
If you check my website or even my youtube channel you will find the sound of this keyset and the DSA's almost sound the same. Considering these are doubleshot ABS and waaaay more thicker than the DSA's, I thought that they should have sounded quieter. But anyway I hope you enjoy the album below.
JTK Debut or sometimes called PoW which is short for purple on white. The first keyset produced by a company JTK. It is like GMK double shot abs. Comparing JTK with GMK, I would say GMK is more polished and the quality is more mature. Not too bad considering JTK is a new company. Not really sure if they created their own molds but if they did then they did a hell of a wonderful job.
I am not really too sure about the history of the molds all I know is that GMK bought the original tooling from Cherry and ever since then they have been producing cherry profile keycaps. In any case these JTK I would say is great if you want to try out doubleshot abs and want to know how it would feel like typing on a GMK.
