Very long waiting time

JoidyV, 18.06.2018
I like the product itself, but I am very very unhappy with how the delivery time and delivery estimation was handled by Thomann as I ordered the Bundle including the TB-03 and the TR-09 in February, reason being to produce music for my College course. I didnt mind being told the 303 would be in stock within two days. My delivery time was then pushed back to 4 months, Thomann then sent me out one half of the bundle. Once the said delivery time arrive this date was then pushed back by another few weeks, this was not helpful as I was on the brink of returning my product. Not happy.

It works as a 303

24.03.2017
I couldn't afford the 2-3k it costs for an authentic Roland TB-303, so I settled for this instead. It has identical functionality and interface, so there's nothing amiss there. I personally like how it can be propped-up so that it faces the user more directly, which is handy in studios where there's little desk space and this gets place further away.

I have noticed though that it's not an identical copy of the TB-303 when it comes to sound. Listening to online comparisons there is a noticeable difference, one of which concerns the "accent" feature. Read up on that online if this concerns you, but for the difference in cost I certainly feel the TB-03 is worth it.
