Re: ** Rare Parts Kit for the TR909 Clone '9090' - Gaetano **
You don't absolutely need these, but it would sound closer to a real TR909, just like you don't absolutely need to use the original parts in a TB303 / x0xb0x, but it sounds more like a real TB303. I am mainly getting these as I prefer the real thing, and note also that some of the substitutes are becoming difficult to find as well. However I am still waiting until I get a few more parts before I offer these anyway, as I need to test all of the parts first. I am trying to make it easier to assemble a full parts kit, as the other parts (i.e., the resistors and capacitors) are very generic so you should be able to get them at your local parts store. The only other bits, i.e., the programmed controller and roms, come with the PCB's from Trevor. I am also thinking of having panels made, if I can get a good price I will mention it here also.
To make your own x0xb0x the 'Rare' parts are here: viewtopic.php?f=29&t=5526

All the other parts are easy to get.Gaetano
