Better fonts!
PLEASE bring this back with an improved font!
Please improve the font!!
Wish the dsa was the race 3 set
The font sucks....
All I want are those arrow keys. Do I buy the whole set?? Thinking... thinking...
Windoze only :-(
Is there any other place we can get these? That March shipping date is soooooo far away.
question. dsa is the shorter caps? sa is the taller caps?
panda713
yes
panda713
Dsa is shorter
@XiK Can you please tell them to change the font to something similar to Signature Plastics DSA/SA font?
Also, what profile are the SA keycaps? Sculpted, or all Row 3?
SA Caps definitelt looks sculpted but unsure about exact profiling.
oh man, these are nice but the font ruins it. also, why doesn't the spacebar match the alphas?
nightdriver
All fonts other than helvetica is heresy.
The font is the only reason why I am NOT getting this.
zwartho
Ditto
On the SA set, are there 3 different space bar sizes included or just 3 of the same space bar? I'm not able to see a difference or find anything in the description. I've been looking for an SA profile set of "odd bars" for various keyboards to match some Signature Plastics ABS SA sets (6u, 6.5u, 7u, etc, 6u is the one I really need).
Hey guys,
There seems to be a mixed up with the option gallery, below are the correct profile/colorway for DSA/SA Sorry about the confusion!

Is the SA sculpted or all row 3? I can't see where a distinction is made. Cheers,
JDM.hobby
that's what I'm wondering. seems important detail to include in the description...come on mass drop do you know anything about us by now?
That font tho, yikes.
Dumb question: Are the DSA's in this drop smooth like SA caps? I've got the Uniform SA set off the Vortex Vibe and the caps are smooth like SP or Maxkey SA, but I've never actually seen a smooth DSA set. If this one is it'd be a first, and despite the less attractive font, it'd make this the only DSA set that I might actually want.

I’m going to bet it‘ll be textured like all other DSA caps. Pretty sure they wouldn‘t retool their molds and make smooth tops. I dislike the texture myself and moved away from DSA due to it.
As much as I prefer my Granite DSA set, if you don't have it, this looks like a pretty comparable alternative for less $$. If I didn't already have my set, I'd be tempted. Font is a little iffy, but tbh, I don't think it's that ugly... but i'd probably say that about anything that's not comic sans...
Not including [`¬¦] [2"] [3£] keys for UK makes me sad, and makes me not buy it. I'd be so happy if keycap manufacturers stopped including the large enter with a couple ISO keys and calling it ISO-ready (admittedly this drop doesn't advertise ISO compatibility in text at all), and started offering country specific ISO add-on packs.
"Boss, I can't find the enter key!" "Just slap some gray enter key from another set, they won't notice"

Our sample coordinator mixed up the gray enter key from a tai-hao set that was installed onto the keyboard from another drop. Sorry about that guys, thanks for putting up with us :p
XiK
>sample coordinator Now that's an interesting job position. I was wondering for a long time how do you guys manage this drops. The process and logistics must be insane.
So grey = DSA , beige = SA ?
Kornay
Yes. The SA keycaps (tall) are colored in beige, and the DSA keycaps (short) are colored in grey.
Is the SA all row 3? I'm having a hard time telling from the pictures.
JDM.hobby
Upon closer inspection it looks sculpted! Look at the Esc row and the extra modifier keys and you’ll see they curve up. Pretty important info Massdrop forgot to include!
I think the DSA and SA profile pictures (at the bottom) are labeled backwards. Also, the font :(
kungpaogao
Yeah I was about to comment the exact same thing.
kungpaogao
Yes, you're right.
Yeesh—too bad about the corny font, huh?
Spacebars 6, 6.25, and 7u?
yaeger77
Last I checked a 6U mold didn't exist for SA... what's going on here??
Just checked keycaps that came with my Pok3r and I can confirm that the font on both DSA and SA keysets are either same as Pok3r keycap font or is based on it.
That font looks better when it's on the corner like GMK keysets. As my wife commented, the font looks squashed when placed in the center with plenty of whitespace around it.
Frankly, these keysets are a good enough deal that I could learn to live with the font.
I loved the thumbnail and was about to slam that "join drop" button... and then I saw the font. DAMN, that's ugly! It's ugly standing alone, and it's extra ugly on a retro style profile and color scheme. The DSA profile one gets a special achievement in ugliness, because it's not even consistently ugly... the Enter key uses a totally different font.

I came here to say the same thing. I... do not like the Vortex font. At all.
So there's a difference between Classic SA Profile and SA all-R3. It seems Vortex has always done SA all-R3.

When you say something is SA, you're implying that there's a sculptured profile as seen here: https://pimpmykeyboard.com/template/images/SA-family.jpg
Though lately and frequently, SA sets are being sold using only the Row 3 profile SA cap for all keys. Way too frequently for my liking. Basically a tall DSA set.
You need to specify if this is the case, which it looks like it is.

I agree.
I think the issue is that it doesn't say anywhere which it is. You have to infer from the pictures. (All of which are shot top down)
