All Orders Fulfilled. Extras Available Soon™

After much demand, GMK Taro has returned for a second round and we're excited to be doing this Taro-Themed cable collab with the wonderful pwade3.

Important Group Buy Details

This will run until 150 orders have been reached or until April 6th, 2020, whichever comes first.

Estimated to be shipped by the end of October 2020 and/or slightly before the keyset is fulfilled. 

Due to the nature of Group Buys, special customization requests are not available for this group buy. The timeline is only an estimate and it is possible for unforeseen delays to occur. Refunds/cancellations will not be allowed. Updates will be provided on occasion on our Discord. 

This specific Group Buy only includes our Taro-themed cables. A list of the keyset proxies and other collaborations can be found here.

If you have an ALT or CTRL keyboard, we can not guarantee functionality with coiled cables due to the extra raw cable they use. It's not always a problem, but want to be as safe as possible.
