Trying out different switches, replacing old ones, and matching several types of mechanical keyboard switches used to be difficult and required advanced technical skill. The patent pending Glorious Modular Mechanical Keyboard (GMMK) is the world’s first mechanical keyboard featuring hot-swappable switches for Cherry, Gateron, and Kailh branded switches.
Ever wonder what Gateron Blues felt like? Or what is the craze behind the Cherry MX clears? Want to use Gateron Reds for your WASD, but Gateron Blacks for all your other keys? With the GMMK, you no longer have to purchase an entire new keyboard, or disassemble and solder your switches – you can simply pop out the switch just like a keycap, and mix/match to test out and use any combination of switches you desire.
Armed with a glorious sandblasted aluminum face plate, 100% anti-ghosting (full NRKO), LED back lighting (several modes), modular switches, double shot injection keycaps, and minimalistic design - The GMMK is revolutionizing the mechanical keyboard market, giving users full control without needing any technical experience.

The cherry stabilizers that come with the barebones version are lubed! I don't know if they have done the clipping and band-aid/tape mod to it. The overall keyboard feels very nice and sturdy.
Got the full size over a Ducky One Two, upgraded from my Logitech k203, massive upgrade. The Gateron Red's i went with sound amazing and feel great. I ended up with tao hai rubber key kaps for my WASD and hyper X pudding caps for the rest of the board BUT the default are great I just wanted more flashy. The RGB is superb and far outclasses most name brand boards, the multi purpose software (THATS NOT EVEN NEEDED) is way better than any name brand company's (Razer, Logitech, etc.). Pull the trigger on this one chief its a ride or die board.
For those of you who are debating whether to get this keyboard or not, I’m here to tell you it is worth the money. The value of this keyboard holds pretty good, has decent weight, does not feel cheap and I know its not all around metal like other keyboards but whatevs! This is a hot swappable keyboard and that my friends it’s pretty amazing for the price. Mine was barebones so I chose to get the Kailh Pro Purple switches (tactile - pretty good for typing specially if you lube the switches - talking about true ascendence) and the keycaps which are not that bad they do have some level of coating on them but obviously not as good as double shot PBT keycaps. Looks great, very minimalistic and the RGB lighting it’s perfect and no software needed to change the effects on the go. Super happy with my choice.
I got the GMMK compact with Kailh pro purple switches. I love the board, it feels super solid, well made, and it is very easy to swap switches. The Kailh pro purple switches are my new favorite switches for typing, and they feel like a combination between tactile and linear switches with a very early tactile bump. Overall, I am very happy with this keyboard and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a hot-swappable compact keyboard.
I did not purchase keycaps and instead used pbt keycaps I had from another keyboard.
just got my gmmk TKL keyboard today with gateron clear swtiches, and this keyboard is super nice im so happy, but keycaps are crap... so i put my old ducky keycaps and now its perfect!
