Simple really is best. I mean I do like vibrant colors, but a BoW set with a white/lighter colored case is
these keyboards are so cute!!
Looks soooo good! I ordered the Soya for round 2…hopefully it will be nice with some BoW keycaps too! But I think with WoB will also give a nice contrast too
hey gavin =D
I got the same. as you may have seen on the U80 seq2 thread.
I’ve been thinking of using GMK Yuru or GMK Noire… I joined the Yuru GB, but debating on Noire still.
Since it’s an off white. I am not sure if WoB or BoW sets will match actually. I’ll definitely be testing a few keycaps to really nail down the colorway I prefer. =D
Something I’ve noticed while trying to find the “right” keyset for a white-cased board of mine is that BoW sets come in many different shades of white;
- NovelKeys PBT BoW is a slightly warm white, like an eggshell
- EPBT x GOK BoW is a stark, cooler white; like bleached polyester
- Another no-name PBT BoW set I found is a very warm off-white, approaching cream-colored
GMK and some other high-end BoW sets benefit from using standardized plastic colors that are easy to reference:
- GMK Bleached uses WS2 - stark, colorless white
- GMK Minimal uses WS1 - warmer, “natural” white

Glad to see those caps in a good home
Indeed! Thanks again! These will be moved to another board I am getting in tomorrow, I’ll be sure to post again.
seems a little optimistic to assume we’ll still have coral in 2050, no?
Unfortunately yes… That probably is optimistic.
I like how the VHS texture plays with the idea of coral. Very cool.
Wow great pairing! I wonder what kind of stabs you use for the spacebar?
Hey, thanks ! All the sliders & stabilizers including spacebar are novatouch ones.
For 2u keys the hhkb housing is drilled to allow the lateral mx feet.
For spacebar stabs the housings are detachable and you can place the novatouch ones + use the hhkb 6u wire.
If you can’t get that, you can use a costar stab or cherry plate mount.
