Great small multieffect / fly rig
Popinjo, 22.05.2020
Since I am not a professional or gigging musician, did not want invest a lot in a pedalboard with individual pedals for all the effects I want. On the other hand, most of the multi-effects are rather complicated, with too many options, and when you want to change the parameters you need to enter mutiple menues - and I do not like that. I wanted something simple, with almost all the effects I want/need and with possibility to quickly change parameters in an analog way - via knobs.
And this is it - no-nonsense, easy to use, but again flexible multieffect which includes the most often used effects. You can change parameters of each effect easily, in a matter of seconds, but you can also make and store your own presets (combinations of effects). You have an "extra" footswitch which can be assigned to the effect or can be used as boost. What I really like is the possibility to change the order of overdrive and distortion - you can put drive before or after distortion or in parallel.
Not that I use it, but you can also put time/modulation based effects in effects loop (after the amp - but I just plug Cerberus directly before the amp).
PROs:
- compact size for multi-effect
- analog, easy and quick change/adjustment of parameters
- flexibility (presets or single effects, time based effect before or after the amp, order of overdrive and distortion)
- headphone output with cab simulation
- all the main/most often used effects by guitarists are here
- lots of connection options
CONs
- none really, especially at this price
- but one smaller remark - I really like the overdrive, but distortion sound just a bit muddy for my taste, lacking a bit of mid frequencies - so I often combine it with overdrive and then it just sounds great!

In total, a great buy, definitely a keeper for anyone that wants a simple, but powerful multi-effect.

Awesome product for the money!
Evgen666, 19.02.2019
Super stoked to have that great product in my hands! I play mostly metal with lots of clean guitars, also I like to play fast and riff-based music. So in my case, it's crucial to have the unit which can switch completely my sound by clicking one button. Also love the fact that Cerberus has fully analog distortion/overdrive block. I had the Line 6 HD300 once but the distortion modeling was really weak there, plastic sound and overall digital feel so I choose from the old TC-Electronics Nova System and Mooer Black Truck. I choose Cerberus because it has IR loader, it has MIDI (for future), and it has distortion (unlike the Nova System which has overdrive only and not suitable for metal at all).

As far as the user experience - it's very convenient while playing (no need to dance on the pedals), seems sturdy and robust (metal case), VERY compact - plan to carry it in my small 10 L Quechua backpack with 2 cables and 9v DC power adapter.

All you ever need!
#1Sebas, 19.05.2020
Before this, I was using a Boss ME80 as a multi-effects unit. Although also offering a multitude of effects, I found it very heavy to carry to band rehearsal. This is where the Cerberus caught my eye.

All effects I ever use in a compact and especially lightweight package was a no doubt choice for me, along with its preset storage capability, a built-in tuner, cab simulation and the ability to both run your OD and DS in front of the amp and the modulation effects through the effects loop, the list goes on and on. It baffles.

Yet to discover any disadvantages, I heartily recommend the Nux Cerberus to any guitarist (and bassist, it works great for bass too) who is looking for a down-to-earth, versatile and lightweight multi-effect.

Great Little Multieffect
Tsvetan Tsvetkov, 24.11.2019
I got the Cerberus few weeks back and I must say it's an amazing piece of equipment. I am new to the tube amp world as I have always been playing multieffect processors (the zoom g5) directly plugged in the PA. So I got a H&K Tubemeister but I didn't have any pedals and I couldn't control it with my Zoom G5. So I got the Nux Cerberus.
This little thing can use midi to change the amp watts and switch channels. This allows me to have multieffect experience with patches and banks of sounds, but using the distortion and clean tones of a real amp. The result is amazing.
Pros:
- It's small, well built and made of metal. The knobs are solid and it doesn't look like it's going to fall apart any time soon.
- Tons of options. You have midi control, pedal input, fx loop, headphones output and lots more.
- Can be used as normal pedal board or as a multieffect
- Can be updated with software and the recent update added a Shimmer
- Sounds really good
- It's very cheap
- Software is well made and easy to use
- It's small and lite, so it's easy to transprot
- Has a boost option

Cons:
- You have to get the power supply separately
- Doesn't have included pedal
- Can'y use it as a sound card (The usb is only for tinkering with the effects. You can't record with it)

Basically I'm very happy with this product. It does exactly what I need it to do and considering the price it's just amazing. You can connect other pedals to it and make it the center piece of your rig with ease. It's well made, cheap and easy to navigate. A no brainer piece of gear that will work perfectly.
