In quieter times, Pioneer DJ has a habit of pushing out limited runs of firm favourites in different colourways. And in what can only be classed as the quietest of times in recent memory, Pioneer DJ has got a couple of repaints on the cards for the DDJ-SB3 and DDJ-400 controllers. 

I’ve been sent reams of PR for both units, that uncharacteristically I’m not going to reproduce here because the message is quite clear:

  • The DDJ-SB3-S is a limited run of all silver costing $249.
  • The DDJ-400-N is a limited run of black with gold trim $249.
  • They’re only available in selected shops (or stores in this case) in Asia Pacific, USA, and Latin America. 

So living in the UK i.e. the second biggest DJ market, I cannot buy one of these. So that’s the end of this article. Harsh but fair. So go about your business — there’s nothing left to say anyway.

Oh… I do love the gloriously retro stylings of the DDJ-400-N. It reminds me of those old Technics mixers.



Commenting Etiquette

Welcome to DJWORX. It’s the most engaged community around, and we have a handful of house rules to keep it that way:
  • • Be polite and constructive.
  • • Treat others as you would expect to be treated. So please disengage keyboard warrior mode before hammering in a full caps rant.
  • • Stay on topic.
  • • Consider your tone of voice. Telling someone that they’re wrong comes across better as “I don’t agree and here’s why”.
  • • No links to copyrighted or offensive material.
Life is way too short to waste time policing comments. So break the rules and you’re out. It’s just the internet, and  the DJWORX community is way more important than catering to the fragile egos of ranting trolls. I trust I have been crystal clear.
