TR-909 modification prices for customers outside Australia

2019-12-19  Robin Whittle

This page lists prices for customers outside Australia, in Australian dollars for payment via PayPal.  If you are paying via TransferWise, or bank transfer, the prices will be 0.97 of the PayPal prices shown below.

The best way of estimating the cost in your currency is to commence a PayPal "Send Money" payment for the desired Australian dollar amount, to .  After the PayPal system reports the total cost in your currency you can cancel the payment rather then confirm it.

After your machine arrives I will discuss the modifications you want via email or phone.  I will confirm the work to be done with the total cost.  I can give estimates of repair costs, but not quotes.  Very often, while fixing one thing, other faults become apparent, and sometimes new faults develop which were not present at first.  If you use bank transfer or rather than PayPal, please deduct 3% from the prices below.
