Hot Swappable Technology
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.
This is the last keyboard you will ever need to buy.
The GMMK is designed to work the following switch brands: Cherry, Gateron, Kailh. We currently sell Gateron and Kailh GMMK-compatible switches on our website.
Although other brands of switches besides Cherry/Gateron/Kailh will fit, they may be loose or have a tighter fit than normal.
There are several types of Cherry/Gateron/Kailh switches available. These are the specific requirements for the type of switches that are compatible

I had previously considered purchasing the original black GMMK barebones, however I was deterred by the microUSB. Very glad I waited! I didn't mind purchasing the pre-built because I knew I could use the keycaps and would need some extra switches because I only had enough Holy Pandas for a 65%.
Notes from my experience building with it:
- Easy to take apart and swap switches. The case unscrews so you could change the foam (there is very thin foam inside)
- PCB is attached to the top plate and if you wanted to remove it it would be difficult / irreversible. Luckily you can still band-aid the pcb by just reaching through the top plate.
- Stabilizers are pre-lubed and have very little wiggle, but I clipped and re-lubed and band-aided them just so they're locked in place.
- Brown switches included were a little frail and a 2 broke while disassembling / opening them to lube.
Overall the quality is great and the fact that it was available to ship right away made it 100% worthwhile for me.
Looking like the sun is plastering the snow covered mountains. This keyboard is gorgeous. I had their original TKL GMMK and I can say what a big improvement. The stabilizers are noticeably better! Wow! Love that it is USB-C! And the way the RGB shines off the silver aluminum body is just breathtaking! Swapped the Browns out for some Speed Silvers and this baby is flying! Stay Glorious!
Would love to get this as a kb only without the switches and keycaps but i guess ill wait :/
