If someone had knocked on your door a few years ago and told you that you’d soon be able to purchase a 303-style analogue hardware synth for just $89/£66/€79, you’d have laughed them out of your (acid) house, but that’s where we are this Cyber Monday.
We’re referring to the bonkers deals that are currently available on Behringer’s TD-3, both in the UK and the US.
$149 $89 (opens in new tab)
There's an argument to say that, if you're going to get a 303-style synth, the original silver colour is the way to go, and when you consider that Guitar Center is selling it at a $60 discount, that colour looks even more appealing.
Over in the States, Guitar Center is selling the silver version of this squelchy bassline synth for just $89,
while on the other side of the pond, you can nab a red one from Thomann for just £66/€79. (Update: the price at Thomann has gone back up to £85/€99.) Behringer TD-3-SR: £85/€99 £66/€79 (opens in new tab)
Christmas is approaching, and what could be more festive than a red bassline synth? This is a crazy price for this brightly coloured version of Behringer's 303 clone, so take advantage while you can.
Either colour is great in our book; silver gives you the look of the real 303, while red will ensure that you stand out from the crowd.
These deals put the TD-3 more in line with the price of many plugins than hardware synths, so if you want to dirty up your December, get your order in quick.
