Pioneer DDJ-SB / DDJ-SB2
Pioneer DDJ-SB Entry Level Serato DJ Controller
Pioneer’s DDJ-SB is the compact controller, perfect for the entry level DJ seeking a simple yet high-end piece of kit at an affordable price.
Despite its compact nature the Pioneer DDJ-SB retains a classic and slick design and is fitted with a pair of premium 112mm aluminium jog plates, creating a professional, exclusive look.
Pioneer have packaged the DDJ-SB with Serato DJ Intro’s interface, making it easy for you to quickly grow comfortable with the Serato DJ Intro controllers. And if this was not enough, the Pioneer DDJ-SB can also be used with the Serato DJ upgrade, which will enhance your use and performance of the controller.
The compact and professional design alongside the Serato DJ software will enable you to juggle beats at a higher level and with increased ease.
Pioneer have also fitted the DDJ-SB with eight performance pads which will allow you to trigger Hot Cue, Manual Loop, Auto Loop and Sampler alongside Cue, Play, Shift and Sync functions. In doing so Pioneer’s DDJ-SB allows you to mix in exciting new ways: to the best of your abilities, no distractions.
What truly differentiates the Pioneer DDJ-SB from similar models is the Filter Fade function, a step up from the standard cross fader that will set your mixes above that of the rest. The Filter Fade Function will give your sets the professional edge by manipulating both volume and base filter, creating an incredibly seamless and slick mix that would otherwise require two hands.
Not only does this create a sound so much smoother, the Filter Fade function also provides you with the freedom to create more with your free hand and the eight performance pads at your disposal!
DJkit consider the Pioneer DDJ-SB controller to be the must-have piece of compact, feature packed gear for the in-the-know entry level DJ.
The Pioneer DDJ-SB is now replaced with the new improved Pioneer DDJ-SB2

i'm a club dj and bought this to record some mixes at home, i'm amazed by the quality for the price, and highly recommend it. i also purchased the serato dj upgrade. The intro version that came with the controller is fine, but the full version is needed if you wanna record (plus you get more functionality with the full version).
We bought the Pioneer as a christmas present for my son who is 10, loves tech and has recently got into music. He'd played a little with some friends decks and controllers that where all pretty high end so we wanted something cheap but that still had plenty of features so he wouldn't be disappointed. This hit the spot and he has hardly left it alone since Christmas. The experience as a whole was fantastic, prompt shipping, great support even when you are asking stupid questions. I had bought the upgrade to Dj from Intro but couldn't find the code to upgrade the software. DJ kit where prompt and frindly with there response that it was on the invoices second page that I hadn't check doh. The controller is of very high quality and feels premium the layout is really friendly and it's light enough to carry about the house. Serato have some great intro features to get you going with the software and the controller and once you upgrade there is even more to play with, better effects more control over queues etc. Brilliant entry level controller and software that is simple enough for anybody to play with even if you have no DJ knowledge, lots of features and quality interface to have everybody smashing the choons out.
I have never had any experience DJ-ing and didnt understand anything with regards to controllers and what you need. This is perfect for a beginner to learn on, but also any intermediate users. The quality is really high and it has all the functions you need to, with the only very small down side is that it doesn't come with samples. The Serato intro software is easy to use, and after a couple of youtube videos you can easily pick up the basics of how to mix tracks using the pioneer controller. I would highly recommend to anyone because of the great quality. The customer service by DJ-Kit was excellent as well, I spoke to them on the phone and they were very helpful and the parcel arrived the next day by courier.
The DDJ-SB is a very well designed controller with all the features a DJ would need. It's brilliant for mixing tracks and is equipped with a brand new feature called Filter Fade which allows you to seamlessly mix into the next track and is very effective at doing so. I would recommend this controller to any DJ who is looking for a new, cheap but superb controller. Joe
I'm just starting out as a DJ and these decks were exactly what I needed. They are so simple to use and there are various features that make the decks high quality and will help other budding DJs to become pros!
I've had the DDJ SB for a while now and it has definitely served its purpose. It's neat and ideal for the amateurs as well as the professionals, lightweight but still well built. All in all I've had no problems with this.
Beginner DJ, used to vinyl.. first controller I've bought so can't compare with others but really is fantastic. Compact and lightweight which is really important for me as I'm always on the move, but plenty of features, lovely smooth jogwheels, hours of fun!
Came with all the software and does everything I need as a first controller. Delivery was surprisingly fast too, only downside was I needed to buy a cable to link it to my speakers but that was only a few quid so no biggie.
Very impressed with this product overall! The unit itself is of a high build quality, with the faders/knobs feeling solid, not cheap. I would highly recommend buying the full version of Serato DJ, as the features it unlocks are well worth the money. Very portable and easy to set up. Perfect for beginners, or someone on a budget that wants to buy from a reputable brand.
Just wanted to say a few words about the SB, its a great product, do not hesitate to get one, I have been DJing for 30 years with 1210's and CDJS so this was pretty much my 1st full on digital Dj purchase, I am so pleased I did, in the past I have always gone with Numark for the value for money and nearly went for the Mixtrack pro II, I am glad I have spent the extra for the pioneer, its so well made, and with the Full Serato DJ upgrade, its basically everything I have always wanted, there is so much you can do with it and found the software very user friendly. I have to mention also that I received a great service from DJ Kit from start to finish and would recommend them to you.
This is a fantastic product, especially for the price, it has it's similarities with the Numark Mixtrack Pro 2, but this does beat it for the fact that its easy to use with Serato. Would definietely recommend this to anyone, just as a mess about, starting to DJ or switching from Numark!
Was dispatched really quickly, and was very easy to track the order and know exactly when it would be delivered. There was a bit of damage to box, but this didn't damage the product itself. Overall, I'm extremely pleased with the whole service and the product. I would definitely buy from here again!
I bought the DDJ SB because I'm limited for space but the potential this basic midi mixer can do is amazing. It looks good, weighs nothing and is easy to use and feels great, if you know you're stuff the potential for this midi mixer is there...
very good product for the money its a lower end controller , but still packed with features , I bought this so I can get used to a computer based dj equipment and this product has been perfect for that introduction , eventually u will always want to upgrade but perfect platform to start , would also advise getting the full serato with it as u would always want that anyway so may start with it ,
What great service i received from djkit,my order came within 2 days off ordering it,and was puzzled about how to upgrade my serato dj,i sent djkit an email and within minutes somebody had called me back Excellent work guys. Am loving my Pioneer DDJ-SB just learning the hard part now off how to mix lol. :-)
I bought the SB in december last year as part of DJkit's first pre-order shipment. I bought it as having moved home I was looking for a small controller with a decent amount of features, at a good price and which had a good build quality. I have had it for a year now and it is a superb piece of kit. Once you upgrade to the full version of serato you can do literally anything with the SB. If you are just getting into DJ'ing or like me have been doing this since the 90s on vinyl then this is no brainer if you are tight on space or funds. I was tight on both. In my opinion you can spend hundreds and hundreds of pounds on controllers ... but if you are new to it or will not use all the features ... then what is the point? The SB does almost everything that more expensive controllers do ... for £200. 2 channel mixer ... multiple effects on each channel that can be combined, filter on each channel, quality jog wheels, looping, roll, sampler, hot cues, vinyl mode, key lock, auto loop, manual loop, hot loops. For £200 this is outstanding. I had never used serato before getting the DDJ-SB. Its great to use ... and you can do anything that you can do on the controller on the laptop as well within the software. Setting up genre crates etc is simple. Recording your mix is a breeze. Importing your tracks again is a simple task. Nothing is complicated or confusing. Serato is an excellent piece of software. All in all for £199 the Pioneer DDJ-SB is a superb controller for beginner DJ's, seasoned DJ's getting their first controller or a DJ who wants a spare lightweight portable unit to take around to friends houses etc. The upgrade to SeratoDJ from the bundled Serato intro software is a must and not too costly. A great buy ... well worth the money!
This controller for Â£199.00 is the really great value. Any DJ, beginner or professional would find this product fantastic. I have used other controller in the same price bracket and they are no match what so ever. Ok it feels a little bit plastic but that is not to its detriment because its light weight is a bonus.. The faders, control knobs and pads feel great and respond really well. I suggest you get the full Serato package to really appreciate all the functions of this controller.
Great DJ controller for beginners and pros alike. I'd strongly recommend purchasing the full Serato software with this controller - you get a lot more features and it gives you the ability to record your mixes. The size, weight and build quality of the DDJ-SB is fantastic. 10/10, well done Pioneer.
no more can be said really it all turned up on time in full working order. due to disability i only will go on when im able which will be occasional, but will help me get back into doing the things i love. Had the numark mixtrack pro (1) and that was great but so far the Pioneer is awesome too. Would love the higher end products but in my budget this is more than adequate. Thank you
As a fairly new DJ this controler has been fantastic. I've learnt a lot from having a professional piece of equipment, well built and easy to use. Would recommend this to beginners and the more advanced DJ.
I bought this mainly for practice and the road. It is well constructed although plasticy. The platters feel nice and have a nice smooth movement. The pads are limiting as the bottom four pads are limited to the basic controls. The FX section feels empty but I am putting that down to Pioneer not wanting it to be "too good" of an option compared to the higher end DDJ products and the same goes for the lack of Serato as well. As I said in the title, to enable all of the features you need to have the full version of Serato DJ which is annoying, but not the end of the world as it is perfectly mappable to pretty much any other DJ software. Just ignore the Serato branding I guess. It does what it does well and I am very pleased with both the product and djkit.com's service. I ordered it yesterday at 4pm and received it by courier at 11 the next morning. Very impressed.
fantastic product, delivered one day after i ordered it :) would tell anyone looking into buying a controller for the first time, to go for this......and if you really want the best from this, upgrade to full serato, like i did.....its top class......THANKYOU DJKIT :)
Brilliant entry level product, comes with everything you need to get started, EXCEPT rca cables, would be nice to be bundled along with and i wouldnt mind paying extra, but i am now waiting for my order to arrive to start using this properly! Thank you DJ Kit
I purchased the Pioneer DDJ-SB, when it arrived the body of the unit was twisted and didn't sit flat. I called DjKit.com and they were a great help, I don't blame them at all it's just one of those things. They kept in contact and gave me updates with the progress of my replacement which came very quick. Overall the unit itself is fantastic does what you need it to do. Would definitely be ordering more from DjKit.com
Brought this as a back up for the business can't fault. With with full serato software this is nearly as good the sx. Typical pioneer build quality as you would expect. Worth the tiny price tag
I have had both the Pioneer and the Numarks in this class, and the Pioneer outperforms it for me. The Pioneers controls feel robust and sturdy whereas the Numarks felt cheap and plastic like. I would recommend this over the Numark Mixtracks any day. Bargain price as well.
