- Barebone keyboard ready to be customised

HOT-SWAP AND CUSTOMISE
What elevates the Glorious GMMK 2 Keyboard is its hot-swapping technology. Utilising universal 5-pin sockets, this keyboard is compatible with all mainstream switches. The integrated plate holds them firmly in place, eliminating the need to solder as well as preventing dust from reaching the PCB. Both switches and keycaps are easily removed from the frame, using the included puller tools. As such, this keyboard can be customised with a blend of switches to meet your needs and feedback preferences.
This Glorious GMMK 2 model is a barebone keyboard, making it the perfect blank canvas for keyboard enthusiasts. All switches and keycaps need to be purchased separately before installing into this framework. As such, you can build your perfect keyboard from the bezel up.
Providing a durable and robust foundation, the Glorious GMMK 2 has an aluminium top frame with a polymer bottom. Overall, this provides a balanced weight that, combined with the rubberised feet, help to keep this keyboard standing firm in the heat of battle. The aluminium is CNC milled with an anodised finish. The soft brush look creates a sleek aesthetic, with the classic black colour scheme completing the look.
This is the TKL model of the Glorious GMMK 2. Using a clever hybrid design, this keyboard fits 68 keys onto a compact frame that is closer to a 60% form factor with the added benefit of arrow keys. As a result, you save on desk space without having to sacrifice keys. Plus, the compact size is more ergonomic and comfortable over longer typing and gaming sessions as your hands have less distance to travel. Further promoting extended comfort, the frame is angled at 7° to alleviate wrist ache, with feet that can increase this to 14°.
RGB AND SOFTWARE
Completing the Glorious GMMK 2, this keyboard is equipped with both per-key and side diffused lighting. Each socket is equipped with north-facing LEDs that shine directly beneath the transparent legends, enhancing the captivating glow and readability. The side diffused LEDs shine onto your desk and reflect back for a soft, atmospheric aesthetic. Toggle through eighteen pre-set effects, or explore the full 16.8 million RGB spectrum and customise the lighting with Glorious CORE software.
Glorious CORE can also be used to map shortcuts and macros on your keys, increasing and fine-tuning the functionality of the Gloroius GMMK 2 to suit your needs. What’s more, whilst it was designed to be used with CORE, this keyboard can also be adjusted utilising the open-source firmware QMK. This offers more in-depth customising for you to explore and assign to your keyboard. The possibilities are near endless.
