Are these shine through so RGB leds will work?
Hortm
Nope.
If only this was PBT instead of ABS, I would've backed a dump truck full of money to Massdrop to buy them. Doubleshot PBT Alps keycaps are like the golden goose, I swear.
mattharms
yup.
Any chance for the next drop to have better coorways?

Was the "1 End" and "3 Pg Dn" button supposed to be cruciform stemmed or should it have also been alps?

Yep got the same response. They’re sending out a new set so hopefully that’ll wrap up this drop for me. Great customer service on their part. Very happy so far
noodlesock
They're doing the same for me. Yes, really great customer service! Very accommodating...
Are these compatible with the corsair K70 rgb?
Raoul1121
No. They are Alps keycaps.
These keycaps are very thin just know that
Is this keycap never fade away like my "Tai-Hao Cubic ABS Aquamarine"?
NarrcasticMeaning
They are double-shot. The legends should not fade.
dinosaur_meat
Sure, I will get it after read and see the comment.
Forever waiting for a PBT version.
admin
Never going to happen.
Olivette, stabs options, and extra keys for swapping modifiers please. Ctrl/caps lock in particular.
Im really confused. The estimated ship date is not until march, but I just got a shipping notification and a tracking number. Has anyone else had their order ship?
lgbttoaster
Yep! Got a shipment notification this morning. They shipped out months early when they dropped last year too. I’m not complaining! They arrive 2-3 days after they first ship our for me too, which is quite nice.
Where is the 101 set dammit!
These aren't bad for the price. They look pretty decent, but if you're expecting thick caps, you'll be disappointed. They're fairly thin.
Purchased these a while back and they're totally worth it IMO. Not easy to find doubleshot alps switches, let alone in a good looking color way like these. Only criticism would be lack of different modifier sizes to fit different boards, but mine fit perfectly on a KB Paradise V80.
Shoot - I'd buy this if it were Cherry MX - but I know, all of you Alps folks are saying, "now you know how it feels."

Just a Dolch colorway, lots of people make cherry mx stemmed switches in this colorway.
sleepybrett
. . and double-shot and PBT. Those three things are what I am looking for, but there isn't one available today for Cherry MX on Massdrop. I'm waiting for exactly that. I guess it's too standard or typical to have much of a following here. Did everyone already get theirs?
very good colour,when could we get cherry keycaps
Just a question here for ALL the hardcore experts in the current world of Alps Keyboards;
Is there a NEW all Alps Keyboard with at least 104 keys being sold anywhere on the web?
I don't mean Matias's version.... so please leave that one out of this discussion.

So depressing that the current manufacturer of Alps based 104 keyboard's is Matias. Hate his casing and the cheapo printed key-caps that wear away.
Was looking for a decent but ultra conservative 104 key keyboard that could use these ABS key-caps easily without any major modifications.
Such as it is to be an Alps fanatic and being surrounded by the dreaded Cherry MX sickness - 24/7 : (

I hear you. I do have a collection of various mech (mostly full size) keyboards (Topre, NMB space invader switch, Alps (including the Northgate Omnikey Ultra), and Cherry MX). Indeed, some of the best keyboards (e.g.using authentic Alps switches) are no longer made. Like many of the ALPS fanatics out there, I too have managed to purchase (ebay) the highly coveted/elusive blue ALPs based keyboard (Leading Edge DC-2014), and put those switches into a modern keyboard (KBP V80). Yes Blue ALPs is by far the best ALPs switch ever made. Smooth... I too wish there were more ALPs keyboards (and keycaps). Pictures below.

yeah thats what was happening with my v80
seen his vids, and yeah he makes it look easy. i wish someone would make a vid on removing ALPS keycaps on these KBparadise boards
I bought the black version and they are quite nice. I'd love to see these in spherical/SP, or at the other extreme, Apple IIGS.
Is this a mechanical keyboard? Been looking for a nice mechanical 10-keyless keyboard for gaming.

You should look at Ducky one TKL. They have different options for RGB, plain backlit or no backlit. Their keycaps are solid but you can always swap them for customs.
heldpizza
Thanks! I’ll check that out.
I wanted an Olivetti colorway. I already bought Black, Dolch and Red Dolch.
EnderGumball
Yeah I know mk.com holds that set, mostly it was out of stock. Too bad shipping to Serbia is like 50$ :)
👀
This will go great with the V60 w/ALPS that recently dropped here.
I had requested hoping for an ergo dox layout. Really disappointed to see it's not available.

PMK has granite for ALPS, including an Ergodox kit. It's a lot more expensive than this (which is why I haven't bought it), but there is an option now for the ALPS Ergodox.
phoible
It won't be around for ever, so jumping on it now is a good call. I have a set incoming myself.
Are these keycaps compatible with 'Matias Quiet Click' switches? It's a shame there are not more keycaps for these boards :(

That is actually a pretty cool find! If they've been collecting dust for 2 decades I can imagine they need quite some love ;-) Good luck!
Insanity01
it's a, uh..... ntc kb-6151, iirc. Ty! hopefully i'll get to it before 2020, haha
Does anyone know if the Tai Hao sets come with apple modifier keys?
rhinestonebones
Not that I've been able to find. and I've been searching for over a year. Could change tho.
could anybody tell me what keyboard is in the pic for the keycaps? Also what are some 10 keyless or 60-75% keyboards you recommend.
fariswheel
The pic is a KBParadise v80.
Is this sets of keycaps https://matias.store/collections/keycaps-and-switches-1/products/keycap-set-black-blank ok for matias switches + Ergodox Infinity ?
MarcelMonfort
No, the ergodox has a very unusual layout.
MarcelMonfort
For alps Ergodox you want the set from http://pimpmykeyboard.com/dsa-alps-matias-granite/
These keycaps are perfectly alright. Pretty much what you'd get on any run of the mill keyboard now days, but they mount to an Alps switch; that's quite a thing, I love the colors as I intended to put them on my Dell AT-101 however was slightly disappointed to note the supports on the space-bar are too widely spaced for said keyboard and the caps lock doesn't fit (being non-standard on the AT-101) so I stuck with my original caps on those.
Sill, I'm pretty keen on them; they're double shot and the legends on my OEM keycaps from the 90's were finally starting to show some signs of giving up.

Alps switches are all stab mount to my knowledge, in-that, yes. The space bar is not cherry mount, it's center mount is Alps, however it has holes for two cerry space bar support switches on either side, as opposed to clips for the metal arm these keyboards use to spread the force along the spacebar, you can use it, but it's hardly usable because striking it anywhere but dead center results in a hung up, or missed stroke. I will add however, the shift, and enter keys DO have them, and work fine.
Caps Lock is also 'correct' however these keyboards use a kinda 'half-size- caps lock button so the cap won't physically fit within the space..
I dont have the un used caps with me right now, but here's the bottom of my ctrl key:

See my original image in the original post to see what it looks like.

How close is the fit on the capslock? Could one maybe sand the sides down to make it fit or is it way too big? The pic actually makes it look smaller than the standard cap.
Was really tempted to get these, but holding out for olivette (pretty pretty please)
