TB-303 parts from TT

Post by acidbrother » Sat Jan 22, 2011 9:50 pm

So has anyone had any experience with these, http://www.technologytransplant.com/pro ... ucts_id=71, I was thinking of either replacing the whole thing and replacing the switches later on the old PCB when I feel up to the task. Or would it just be better to get them replaced in the first place?

Thanks

I have not experience with those parts but have bought other parts from that seller.... never again though as he takes your money does not confirm any orders , only replies after countless amounts of emails and never bothered to let me know the items i purchased were not even in stock

I gave them a chance and this happened on a few various orders i placed

Shame as has some good parts but customer service was the werst i have ever had

Takes his own sweet time, but I have had zero problems with any of my orders (knock wood).

EDIT: Answering original question...
Depends (IMHO) what de-soldering and re-soldering those buttons means to you:

1, A quiet hours work at you bench = you could save $$ doing yourself.

2. A tedious, exasperating ordeal = go for the board

3, If you're doing this for a customer, get the board and save bench time.

TT is a mixed bag, I bought the switch replacement board for my 606 and it didnt work (transistors were stuffed in backwards) but replacing the original switches is a nightmare since it is very easy to damage the original board.
