Glow In The Dark Faders + Chroma Cap-tion Contest Winners

Ever since we first started making our own knobs and faders, we’ve gotten requests to make a glow-in-the-dark versions – and DJTT is excited to announce that we’re putting glowing faders in stock today. The faders are a translucent hard polypropylene plastic, and glow green after being exposed to light.

They’re in the DJTT webstore store now for the usual Chroma Caps prices – check them out here. Special thanks to all of the DJs who have tested them out and gave us feedback! We’ve heard from a number of turntablists that the hard plastic faders combined with the slightly fatter fader is pretty fast and fun to play with.


Congratulations, TechToolians, you made us laugh. We posted a picture of Neo stopping bullets Chroma Caps with his mind a few weeks ago and asked for your best captions in an epic contest of hilarity – and got a ton of great responses both in the comments and on our Facebook page.

As always, we wish we could give you all prizes, but then we wouldn’t have any Chroma Caps left to shoot at Mr. Anderson, so the DJTT staff chose our two favorites as the winners. First place went to this popular gem from David Halford:

Second place goes to this short and sweet gem from Murray Nuttal:

Thanks to everyone for their great submissions, and watch out for déjà vu! 

  • Hi, it works on a vestax pcm-280 mixer ? (knob and fader) Thnks

  • Congrats to the winners!

  • lapinfuu

    /suicide … ordered like 30 knobs and 9 faders from switzerland 1 day ago…

  • Pff 🙁 better luck next time I guess

    gratz to the winners btw.

  • DJ_ForcedHand

    OH MY GOD YES! I suppose it would be asking too much to have different colored glow in the dark knobs and sliders now wouldn’t it? I personally like Red, Orange, Yellow and Green but Blue is good too. I often work in low-light conditions and my controller is below the computer so grabbing a black knob on a black controller isn’t the best visual feedback.

    Thank you for making these… when you make the knobs I’ll order the whole kit.

  • good evening how long it takes to arrive in Brazil rio de janeiro

  • What? Glow in the dark is only available for faders? And not the rest of the knobs? Thats bullshit!

  • Steve

    Oh and great job to whoever chose them… I bet you didn’t even read all 400+ comments but meh that’s your choice..

  • Boring

    Winning comments were pretty lame / predictable. Just my opinion.

    • Spacecamp

      You’re well entitled to it – we (the DJTT staff) voted on the winners and these were the top two. Guess it’s good it’s not

      • Boring 2

        Out of 350+ comments, those were the top 2 ? :p

        it must be a humorless commmunity then,
        or you guys got some bad sense of humour :))

        btw when’s the next contest?
        and will there come some kind of substitute for the midifighter classic OR

        will it only be: PRO and 3D for now?

  • Boring

    Winning comments were pretty lame and predictable. Just my opinion.

  • ChromaCapsFan

    how do we on/off them, how much hours its seems to be working, or something like that, give an information or clip, it will be nice

  • Why no glow-in-the-dark knobs?

  • I know theyre the same size as the others but do they fit on akai mpd’s (mpd26, mpd24, apc20,ect)

    • dada

      go to the chroma cap thing in the store and there is a fitting guide. APC is listed for sure

    • where are the APC caps??!!

      for some strange reason, they don’t make chroma caps to fit the APC’s…sigh…neither pots nor pans. i use *one* on my master pan – it’s huge and clunky – just what i need to recognize that’s the master channel – lol

  • Will they ship to the uk?
