Fine jazz machine
Bob Breeks, 18.03.2020
Been waiting a long time to replace the double bass player in my cocktail jazz combo, the wait is over. Smooth Charlie Mingus lines aplenty, free form slides and accents, endless pattern chaining to fit in to any Sun Ra exposition that the audience throws at you in request time. Accurate recreations of custom double basses are possible.The snappy resonance of Giovanni Paolo Maggini instruments is easily moddled, but the rich harmonics of a good Giovanni Battista Rogeri bass are sadly lacking, I feel Behringers engineers have rushed this opportunity. Having said that it's hard to tell the difference between the TD-3 and my venerable 1730 Matteo Gorfriller, so top marks there. I do wish a varnish spruce version was an option, perhaps a relic cork veneer would have been more contemporanious, still one can hardly blame the maker for whating to cash in on the current Acid House boom.
So to sum up: well done Behringer. 10/10.

Amazing, with a couple of minor teething problems.
TEEBEELEE, 04.02.2020
My unit was shipped from the first batch of TD-3's to hit the shelves, so I was expecting some minor niggles. However, so far, so amazing! :)

From an authenticity perspective the TD-3 does a great job at emulating the warm depth and high screams of the original.

If you've owned a TB303 then you'll feel right at home with this.

Yes, it's chassis is made of quite cheap plastic, but it's functional whilst the knobs and pot's (Which are the main touch points for end users) seem of high quality.

The minor gripes I have are are that it didn't ship with a UK PSU so you have to buy an adaptor, and my personal unit suffers with quite a lot of mains interference.? A ground loop isolator took care of most, but it's still quite noisy. I'd be interested to hear from others on this.

Finally the headphone jack wobbles and seems like it may not last that long from first impressions. Time will tell on that one.

With that said, the device does come with a whopping 3 year warranty as standard so any build quality concerns I have with mine can get sorted over time if required.

Having owned and sold a few originals over the years I'm more than happy with this purchase.

Pro's:
Its £130 for a 95% TB303 Clone!
It comes with built in distortion effect! (No need to ship it to Australia for a Devilfish Modification). ;)
Its £130 for a 95% TB303 Clone!

Cons:
UK PSU not supplied. :(
Possible shielding issues on PSU creating noise? (can others please comment)
Possible weak connectors on the faceplate. (time will tell)


For the money the TD-3 is a no brainer and on the whole I'm having a blast replicating my Rebirth set up of the 90's with actual analogue hardware. A dream come true. Thanks Behringer! Top marks for keeping the vintage analogue revival going.

PS: I ordered a 2nd yellow one. Not Sorry. :)

CARLO ALBERTO M., 15.03.2020
With this product Behringer confirms that is now one the leaders in the synths game (and not only). This clone it's really close (in sound and features) to the original, you can easily watch a tutorial of a TB303 and use your own TD-3. It sounds great, material is plastic (like TB303) and the distortion switch in the front it's great to experiment new sound IMMEDIATLY OUT OF THE BOX without any other gear like pedals or digital effects. Perhaps the only flaw with this synthesizer is the lack of a MIDI OUT port to memorize MIDI envelopes in DAWs.
By the way for 155€ and above there's nothing better.

Close But No Cigar
Ben Sudo, 05.03.2020
What can you say for that fantastic price and the added features!
Still.. a rave rview is not always 5 stars.

Starting with the sound... I plugged it into a pair of large amplified computer speakers, routing it - and a TB-303 - through separate but equal tracks on a DAW. My wife called the sound faat when I asked her how do you like it? Then I switched on the TB-303, not the same settings and pattern because this wasn't a pre-planned test and she called the saound "3-D and organic". This is from someone who is not into Acid and is not a synth head in any way. The TD3 sounds great but a little less so when a TB-303 is right next to it. Also the distortion is a bit disappointing, especially in the highs where it loses volume fast.

But hey, can I really complain when this also has USB MIDI, and pattern ediiting?! I do wish it aIso had CV and GATE IN and maybe a few more patch points. In which case I'd happily pay a bit more. Imagine patching a few of these together with a few Craves.. or a Neutron.. SICK!
