Devil Fish prices for Australian customers
2019-12-19 Robin Whittle
These prices are for the TB-303 Devil Fish modifications. Prices for
Devil Fish mods to the TT-303 and RE-303 will be on separate pages.
This page lists prices for customers in Australia, or who are overseas
but wish their machine to be delivered to someone in Australia, who
will return it to them.
If you are interested in Martin Rothlisberger's AluCases (http://acid.ch
please contact us for more information. In late 2019 we heard
that he has two Devil Fish AluCases left and will not be making any

These prices include GST and are for payment with cash or transfer to our bank
account (we will email the details).
The following lines can be copied into an email, deleting those which
do not apply. The items below do not include freight costs

. TB-303 Devil Fishes are too valuable to be sent by Australia Post.
$1320 Devil Fish mods with 3.5mm headphone socket
and user-changeable lithium battery.
$154 Install Omron sealed tact switches.
Frequently desired options:
$308 Install 6 new small pots - Tuning to Accent.
These are similar to the pots used in the
Cyclone Analogic Bass Bot (V1), but we
dismantle and clean them, modify them to
reduce sideways movement and reduce the
chance of wear if the knob is pressed while
being turned. We also relubricate them
with a lighter silicone grease which makes
them easier to turn.
or $100 Dismantle, clean and relubricate (with
lighter silicone grease) the original 6
small ALPS pots, replacing any which are
worn with some used (and similarly
dismantled, cleaned and relubricated) pots
which are in good condition.
Both the above will result in pots which should last for many years. Please do not press downwards on the knobs while turning any of the 6 small pots. The knobs are mounted about 1.3mm higher, which makes them easier to grip.
$121 Install Blue, Red and/or other colour LEDs.
I suggest all Red or Blue with a new Red
LED for the Run/Stop function.
The memory, MIDI and Dynamic Bank and/or Channel
options are too complex to be fully described here. Please see the
manuals linked to at the start of the main Devil Fish page. The MIDI
In and Out system includes CV-to-MIDI functions and, even without any
switches or Audio/CV inputs [Y]
has the ability to dynamically switch between four MIDI In channels,
according to notes and control changes received on channel 15 or 16.
This is the basic form of Dynamic Channel Switching (DCS). The full
version of DCS involves two Audio/CV input sockets, detector circuits,
LEDs and toggle switches. If these are just for the MIDI In and Out
, then this is the full DCS system. If these are part of the 32 Bank Memory system [D]
then this is the full Dynamic Bank and Channel Switching system (DBCS).
Below the list of prices is a table in blue
showing the 9 valid combinations. [A]
= no 32 Bank Memory. [W]
= no MIDI.
$495 [B] 32 Banks of Memory.
or $715 [C] 32 Banks of Memory with Dynamic Bank
Switching: two 3.5mm audio/CV input sockets
with 2 LEDs to invert two of the memory
bank address bits. (* TB-303-1. This is
for no MIDI [W] or MIDI In [X], not for MIDI
In and Out.)
or $825 [D] 32 Banks of Memory with Dynamic Bank/Channel
Switching: two 3.5mm audio/CV input sockets
with 2 LEDs to invert two of the memory bank
address bits and to switch between four MIDI
In channels. (*# TB-303-6. This only for
the MIDI In and Out system [Y].)
$440 [X] MIDI In.
or $660 [Y] MIDI In and Out with basic Dynamic Channel
Switching, without the [Z] switches, LEDs
and 3.5mm sockets which provide full Dynamic
If installed with [D], the MIDI In and Out
system works with [D]'s inputs, LEDs and
switches to form the complete Dynamic Bank
and Channel Switching system.
or $858 [Z] MIDI In and Out with two 3.5mm audio/CV
input sockets with LEDs and two toggle
switches for full Dynamic Channel
Switching. (# TB-303-4. This is for
Devil Fishes without the 32 Bank Memory

$176 Sync Lead (link) to go with the MIDI

driven with the DIN Sync which the MIDI
system generates when receiving MIDI Sync.

the pre-GST $800 price of the Devil Fish 2.0 modifications in 1996 was
adjusted for inflation to 2018, it would be $1,485 including GST.
