Pioneer has combined the popular features of the DDJ-SB2 with their leading Serato DJ controllers, so learning to DJ is more accessible. The DDJ-SB3 DJ Controller is the ideal tool for beginners looking to hone their skills, this 2-channel controller is easy to navigate, featuring a professional-style layout inspired by the top DDJ-S range. Master Serato DJ Lite, then when you're ready, purchase Serato DJ Pro to progress on this machine. Transition between tracks with ease thanks to the added FX Fade feature and experiment with scratch effects without using turntables via the Pad Scratch function. Co-developed with DJ Jazzy Jeff, this technique adds scratch recordings to tracks at a touch of the Performance Pads.

Intuitive Layout
All of the features were designed to be where you need them, when you need them. The layout inherits elements from the DDJ-S series with jog wheels, Performance Pads, play and cue buttons, independent Auto Loop buttons, and all knobs and fader positions arranged in an easy-to-reach way that mimics professional gear.

Pad Scratch
Add scratch effects to cued and currently playing songs without a turntable thanks to Pad Scratch. This effect lets you reproduce, and create patterns from, eight of hip-hop legend DJ Jazzy Jeff's different scratch recordings. As the speed automatically matches the BPM, you won't need to worry about breaking rhythm.

Smooth Transitions
Whether you're an experienced DJ or beginner, mixing is seamless with the FX Fade feature. By reducing the volume and applying FX at the same time, FX Fade smoothly blends tracks, even those from clashing genres. Choose eight combinations of the following four FX patterns: high pass filter, low pass filter, loop playback, and back spin.

Is good for beginners


I was a DJ 30 years ago. I saw, I brought, it makes it too easy for me to mix.. Great for a new wave beginner, hut for an expert its simple



Complete Controller


I love this controller. Its responsive, smooth and has plenty of features. More than enough.



Great place to start


This is the first musical instrument I've bought, and it is a great place to start. I did plenty of research, spoke with friends and am happy with my purchase. Also, the Sam Ash customer service (I bought over the phone) was unparalleled.










Love it so far! Pretty easy to use for someone with no or little experience.



I will buy the gold edition as a back up set up


I am going to be realistic and truthful about this product. This product is incredible, faster responsive than the entry level Dj controller out there. My opinion you don't have to buy the latest pioneer Dj controller like the sz. The sb2 does the job I love it 100% completely



Big mixing features that the higher priced controllers have


Big improvement from the sb2,independent cue and play button,and the big thing was the auto loop function,perfect for mixing in and out



I love my ddj sb3


Small and smooth plus clear sound



Easy to set up and use. Perfect for getting your feet wet.


Super easy to use and set up. I have used serato for years with my turntables but wanted to switch over to full digital. This is a super easy and straight forward transition. Solid build, easy to use, great sound. Perfect for a easy on the go set up, or for a new DJ that wants to get their feet wet before investing in some more professional style gear. Comes with Serato Lite, but it is even better when you use Serato DJ Pro in my opinion.





Easy to learn
