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?

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.

. . 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.




i would get some if it wasn't so hard to get the caps off my V60 mini

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.
The red set is $24.95 + free shipping here: https://mechanicalkeyboards.com/shop/index.php?l=product_detail&p=2540
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.

Thanks! I’ll check that out.
