Roland TB-303

“The TB-303 is a bassline synth released, manufactured between 1981 and 1984. Designed to simulate bass guitars, it has a single oscillator which produces either a ‘buzzy’ sawtooth wave, or a ‘hollow’ square wave. Only 10,000 units were ever manufactured by Roland, it was unpopular to its target audience and was discontinued just 3 years after release, with the remaining units sold off cheaply.

The TB-303 includes a mini one-octave ‘piano’ keyboard, each key complete with a red light. In the same way a drum machine plays patterns of drum sounds, the 303 does the same thing with basslines. Using the keyboard to enter the correct note and its length, the user can program a bassline one note at a time which will then play along in time with the drum beat.

Six rotary controls let you manipulate the tone of the TB-303 so you can tweak the sound to your personal taste.

This TB-303 comes with a Kenton Pro 2 MIDI to CV dual channel converter and connecting 3.5mm connectors which have been re-labelled.

This unit was from a commercial recording studio that closed down in the 90s and has been in storage since closing. It has now been recently serviced ready for sale and is in generally great condition with only some minor marks as to be expected from used studio equipment.

Included is the Roland TB-303, Kenton Pro 2 and connecting 3.5mm cables to connect the two. No original boxes, power cables or manuals supplied. Digital copies of the manuals can be found on the internet. The items will be securely packaged for transit and insured to the full amount (hence increased postage costs).” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Roland TR-606 with Roland TB-303

“Up for grabs in this auction arr a pair of classic synths: Roland TB-303 & Roland TR-606. Both come with original cases and cord. Both cases and the power cord came with these synths.

These were acquired as a pair from the same local seller almost a decade ago. From what he told me, I have only been the third owner of these devices. Both are functional, except for the 303’s saving functionality which erases after a while but that could easily fixed.

Cosmetically, both devices are sound and cleaned. The previous owner placed two small stickers on the 303 which can be seen in the photos.

I have loved these two machines and have utilized them in the studio and live. I hope they can go to someone willing to care for them and use them properly. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Roland TB-303

” I bought this TB-303 a year ago from the original owner who had all the switches replaced by a reputable tech. Works great, all buttons and knobs function as they should, although the volume knob is a bit crackly when turned. Once you settle on a volume, it isn’t noisy.

The other obvious issue is the smiley stickers.. seems the original owner used an alcohol-based cleaner once and ended up discoloring the plastic. He covered it up with the stickers and I didn’t bother taking them off, so I have no idea what it looks like under there!

The rest of the unit is in good condition for it’s age, with all of the lettering intact, and a spotless battery compartment. I’m selling because I have another 303 with the Sequentix midi-bass mod, so it’s time for this one to find a new home. Thanks for looking!” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Roland Computer Controlled TB-303 Bass Line with Original Owner’s Manual and Carrying Case with shoulder strap. Condition Is Used.
I am the original owner and I am selling this unit AS IS, NO REFUNDS and NO RETURNS. I bought this unit shortly after they became available in music stores. I used this unit with the Roland TR-606 Drumatrix. I put it away after sequencers and sound modules became available. I recently placed batteries in it and turned it on (there was some slight static noise when I turned the unit on) and I did some basic programming and the unit worked fine. The unit has some slight abrasion on the front and back panels of the unit which I believe is from the carrying case. This unit was not checked out by a professional technician.” Click here to search for synths on eBay

” Original Roland TB-303. Condition is used. A few scuffs here and there. Some buttons need a bit of a push to get a response but for a 30+ years old machine it’s to be expected.

Roland TR-606 and Roland TB-303

“TB-303 and TR-606, (tested working) both with original manual and a Boss ACA-120 power supply. Also including a “Roland Keyboards Vol 1″ instrument catalog that lists the TB-303 & TR-606.

TB-303 & TR-606 both are in excellent condition.
Cosmetically, they are great, with just a few marks from being stored in their original vinyl cases. (see photos – the 303 has a few more marks where the paint seems to have been marred by the vinyl case)

Both of these have seen very little use. Purchased new by my cousin. He used them lightly, and I never really used them other than a few tests. They’ve been stored in their cases on the shelf most of the last 30+ years.

all knobs, markings, labels look excellent.
Controls all work without noise. Tested them out and they work well and sound good. (I don’t really know how to use them, but I was able to coax some sweet sounds out of them anyway.) Battery contacts are like new. ”

Lot of 2 Roland TB-303s

“These legendary synths don’t need any introduction. If you came here, you know what they are. I have two (!) original Roland TB-303s just standing here collecting dust. They deserve to be used more than I’ve got time for.

The price I’ve put down is roughly what the have cost me, incl. some servicing and upgrades with complete 5 socket Kenton kits for both (CV, filter, gate, accent, slide). I have paid for getting all the services and the installation of the Kenton kits done professionally, but one of the synths was bought from Japan and a couple of lanes on one circuit board was cut to use the original CV/Gate outs as ins. I have got this corrected so that they have the original functionality back, but full control via the Kenton kit in addition. The other one is by me bought here in Norway, but I don’t know if it was bought here originally.

A Kenton Pro-2000 mk2 can follow the sale (midi-CV/gate converter which can also control accent, slide, filter). All leads to connect both synths to the controller will be included.

Sound wise the two synths are quite different. The one has a very nice sound, the other has way too long sustain and I have not been able to get this fixed. At the moment you can not make the classic 303 baselines with it. Hopefully someone with experience tinkering with 303s can get it fixed. All pots work, but they are a bit more loose and scratchy on the one of them. With midi control this is no problem, and I’m sure this can be fixed too. All the electrolytes have been replaced during my ownership, but it is a few years ago now. There should not be any dried out capacitors today, but things change with time of course. I have PSUs for both of them (euro plug), plus the original soft bags, one black and one silver.

This is an unique opportunity to own not just one, but two pieces of music history, even though they are not in mint condition after so many years. During my ownership I have maybe used them 10 hours in total during 10 years. I just need to realise I don’t have the time to use my studio more and they are better off with someone else. When you start playing with these and tweaking the knobs you get lost in time, the hours just fly by, but I don’t have that time. They are fantastic machines.”
