Selling my old keyboards that are no longer used having just upgraded to a GMMK Pro.

I also have two Glorious GMMK modular keyboards in TKL (80%) and Compact (60%) ISO layouts with full RGB per key. These are modular hot-swap boards and don't come with any switches or keycaps, so you'll need to supply these.

The TKL (LINK) is the newer revision and comes with a USB-C cable, while the Compact (LINK) has a micro-usb connection. Both boards have had the stabilisers clipped and lubed and I've also added some foam into the cases (the foam in the TKL is stuck down while the foam in the Compact can be removed).

The aluminum plate on both boards have some marks where switches have been removed, but aren't noticeable when switches and keycaps are in place (see photos). Both are boxed and come with all accessories.

I also have a set of Glorious ISO Keycaps (Fullsize, ABS) which have hardly been used as well (LINK)

Prices (delivered):

Duck One - £55
GMMK TKL - £45
GMMK Compact - £40
Glorious Keycaps - £12

Hi, I am interested in the TKL, can the board be disassembled and have the stabilisers replaced?

Yes, I did it when modding the board and its pretty easy to do, plenty of guides on Youtube.

It uses plate-mount (not screw-in) stabilizers if you are looking to buy replacements.

I'm interested in the 60% you have up for sale, just wanted to ask as I've never built a keyboard, what type of switches would create a thocc sound and be compatible with this board?
And also if you could send/attach a picture of the keycaps you have for sale?

Firstly, the case and plate of a keyboard contribute most of the sound, then the switches. Unfortunately the GMMK compact is a thin plastic case with a fixed aluminum plate/top, so not really thoccy at all and switches won't change this.

For switches, the GMMK compact is designed to fit 3 pin MX-style switches. Most of the more popular switches are 5 pin, but you can snip off the 2 extra plastic legs so they would fit in the board - they are there for stability and removing them won't affect their performance.

Then you have the different types of switch, broadly grouped into Linear, Tactile or Clicky - there are hundreds of choices here and I'd suggest you do some research into what you might like, or which switches are considered to be thoccy (be prepared for lots of different opinions on this).

A good site is mechbox.co.uk who sell individual switches so you could buy a few to try first.

I don't have an actual photo of the keycaps right now, but this will hopefully give you a better idea - the legends are shine-through so will show the RGB lighting through them

Hi, it was purchased in August 2016, so just over 5 years old
