Amazing, with a couple of minor teething problems.
7zark7, 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. :)

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, still one can hardly blame the maker for wanting to cash in on the current Acid House boom.
So to sum up: well done Behringer. 10/10.

Finally a very good 303 clone at an exceptional price!
*Theo E*, 18.05.2020
This was such a good deal, that I actually bought two TD-3s, and I'm practically playing, along with my RD-8, hardware Rebirth 338 (1.0) sessions!

Behringer added a few patch points, so you can control your TD-3 externally, and a nice distortion unit that adds a lot of bite to the sound, however, they kept the original sequencer, which may be tricky to use!

Bear in mind, there may be a slight deviation to the filter tuning. Nothing serious, but some people prefer the darker sound that some original units had. If you know what you're doing, there's a workaround to tune the filter to taste.

A second note: The unit is extremely light and plasticky but then again, the original TB-303 was plastic too, so no worries! Finally don't forget to update the firmware, since it fixes an issue with slide.

There is not much to be said about the legendary sound of Acid that this device produces. It has been the staple sound of many genres, for the past 35 years. So can't miss this one, if EDM is your thing.

Acid Heaven
robbie lee music, 28.05.2020
What can I say, this is my 5th TD-3 now. 3 of them Iv'e purchased from Thomann, Silver,Blue and Red.
I use 3 poly chaining and the other 2 on basslines. I had the original TB303 back in 1991 but these are way better IMO the price is unbeatable. The distortion is pretty cool too and an added bonus. There's nothing to complain about I absolutely love this synth.

Pro's - Everything
Cons - None

Thomann delivers top class products and fast.. 3 days to the UK and well packaged. Highly recommend the Behringer TD-3

Offer you just can't refuse
Kobuz, 29.05.2020
For this price its a no brainer to have this cool machine in the studio. Its cool to work it the old way with the quirky sequencer, but its also easy to sequence it externally. Great value for money!

Brilliant Sound and Affordable!
Roderick Leviton, 22.01.2020
Behringer have once again nailed it with the TD-3!

It sounds and looks like the original with a few most welcome additional features, like the distortion effect and also the ability to create sequences while the instrument is connected to your PC/MAC. So easy compared to doing it manually on the device!

If you love "That Acid Sound", then this is the best option currently, both sound-wise and also affordability!

It's SO GOOD that I have now also ordered the Yellow version. I now have one for the studio and another one to take out playing live.

Great service from the Thomann Team and another fantastic product made by Behringer!

Thank you.

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.

Uli`s time machine has struck a winner
Bry , 26.04.2020
A 303 clone at this price is only matched by the mab33.
If you are looking for the quirky 303 experience the TD3 is pretty much a perfect clone, I would have released a different effect with each colour but hey distortion is a fun additive. The updated synth tool now works a lot better, making pattern editing really easy. Hardware much more fun than a plugin ^^

Analogue at Hands length
Prodigucer4016, 15.03.2020
The USB port/interface allows midi notation directly from your computer (or any other device) to the TD-3 making it super accessible to all users, ie you don't neeed to necessarily learn the programing to reap the raw analogue acid riff benefits.
Added in the box distortion is very welcome.

BLVCK, 30.12.2019
Great product by Behringer. Been wanting a 303 clone for a long while and very happy with this one.

Overall sound is pretty much the same but not an exact match. The product feels sturdy as well. 10/10 to Behringer for getting this synth to consumers for a great price.

Good 303 clone
V.Bart, 05.12.2019
A worthy competitor in the 303 clone wars, for a bargain price!
Enough distorted grunt and squeals to get the neighbours mad,
programming the sequencer is very handy using the synthTool.
Big thumbs up to Behringer!

Best 303 for the price
ludotex, 03.12.2019
The essence is there. Could be a little more bouncy and precise, but it's really close to the original. It's fun to just rock patterns with it. Totally great for the price.

Behringer TD-3
Erka, 27.12.2019
I am very happy with my purchase of TD-3. The sound is very good, the potentiometers work smoothly, the light housing + the USB input and a dedicated editor in which you can easily create your melodies. Low price is an additional plus. I recommend this product 100%
