Make it in Cherry MX PLEASE
I just want an ISO version, god damnit. I really just want the big enter, couldn't care less about localization. I initially bought the cherry equivalent in hope i'd one day would find a cherry switch that don't feel like garbage. The Mod tactiles are the best i've found so far, and i've heard good thing about jailhouse blues though, but have not tried. Even if i would find a cherry switch close to matias quiet clicks, it's impossible to find a tkl board that either wont cost a fortune or have any decent design/look. Oh, woe is me.
How do these keycaps do with backlightning?

Probably a lot of light bleed because they are so thin
Was going to join this but just realized this stabilizer set up is not going to work with the custom alps 60% I‘m trying to build. It’s a shame, that tomcat colorway was growing on me.
What kind of stabilizer mount do these use? Cherry?
rockydbull
these have alps mount on all but the spacebar

Thanks for the answer! Looks like my idea of going matias and cherry pcb stabs on the new xd60 v3 will not work with these caps.
Would love to see this Tomcat colorway come to an MX set!
Why don't these ever come in US Mac layout, I imagine there's a lot of people with Matias boards out there like me. :)

Probably because Matias already makes Mac sets in black and white, so the market is limited. I personally would just rather a symbol which is generic so I can use with both without feeling weird.

AFAIK they only make Mac sets in black, and the printing they use (laser foaming) is really, really bad, it feels miserable and attracts dirt like crazy.
Well going to have to buy 2 sets of these. Would be kicking myself if I didn't and they never ran these sets again
Some support for non-standard layouts would be cool, especially considering these are caps for switches that haven't been produced in years.

Sure but I imagine a lot of the people who wants alps keycaps want them for actual alps switches, and in turn many of the keyboards those are in have older layouts.

Matias also makes a lot of Macintosh layout boards, which don't quite comply with US-ANSI. A few customization options with some blank keys and differently-sized space bars would be really appreciated.
the tomcat scheme is great, i think i'll put it on a PS/2 board reserved for my retro computers. also, all ALPS fans, this is a 'vote with your wallet' thing that we don't get excluded next time and get better options. just saying. : )
So, to clarify: if my board has Cherry MX clone switches, these keycaps won't work? Sorry, new to the mech game.

hmm your best bet is probably goinmg to be selling them on mechmarket when you get the set and then see if you can purchase the colorway you want in MX mount2 or you can buy a Matias board as they are the only company that make retail Alps mount boards.

KB Paradise makes keyboards with Matias switches. For example the v60 MTS https://mechanicalkeyboards.com/shop/index.php?l=product_detail&p=988
Topre versions plzzzzz
That “Tomcat” color scheme defo looks sexy! Too bad Matias boards use non standard key sizes.
ALPS is not an acronym. It's just a name. "Alps" is fine. "ALPS" is unnecessary.

Why so hostile towards someone providing info?
AverySegaw
It's a shame tone isn't something the internet translates very well.
Something for anyone buying this to be aware of, the spacebars ONLY have Cherry stabiliser mounts, not Alps ones.

this is not a problem on boards like the KBP V80 and V60 - those include inserts for those. so unless you want to use the space bar on an AT101W (which is almost the only one of the keyboards of old has standard-size bottom row), you're good to go.
this is still a lot better than what signature plastics do - no proper holes on any of the stabilised keys..

I quite like the Tomcat color scheme! But I don't need Alps caps...

I'm in the same boat. Want to do something about these stabs but every time I pull on one of these seldom-used keys, I feel like I'm bending the whole plate!
sevenseacat
They have this same color scheme for mx stems. This is just support for the Alps peeps.
