Roger Mayer Mongoose-X


Roger Mayer

The Rocket Mongoose Fuzz has been updated with additional features into our standard enclosure that houses our range of guitar effects. This brings this popular design into a modern player and pedal board friendly package.

The immense sustain at low volume and the well rounded very heavy tone has made this a favourite amongst hard rock and metal heads for over 20 years.

It cleans up superbly with guitar volume control and has great articulation between notes that encourages shredding and tapping techniques.

Additional Features

  • FRONT END BUFFERING: This buffer allows the fuzz circuitry to interface better with standard wah pedals and the high input impedance allows the full tone capabilities of the pickups to be heard without the loss of detail produced by a low impedance input. The buffer can be activated on or off by moving two jumpers on the pc card so you can hear the difference easily.

  • FATNESS CONTROL: allows tweaking without destroying units overall tone character.

  • HARD WIRE(TRUE BYPASS) OR TWO BUFFERED OUTPUTS: essential for trouble free interfacing for all situations.

  • EASY BATTERY ACCESS: just slide the cover back to reveal the battery. Could not be faster.

  • STANDARD DC POWERING JACK: allows the use of commercial powering units. Extra internal filtering ensures low noise performance and the standard polarity convention is also maintained.


  • MULTI-MODE OUTPUTS / HARD WIRE BYPASS/ TWO BUFFERED OUTPUTS : The Mongoose - X has a hard wire output (true bypass) plus two buffered outputs that can drive long cable lengths with no high frequency loss. These buffered outputs are disconnected when the hard wire output is being used. This means that all performance situations are catered for whether you want a true hard wire output or your situation calls for the advantages of buffered outputs.

  • RAPID BATTERY CHANGE : No more screws to loose!. Slide the front panel back and there is the battery. It could not be simpler or faster.

  • BATTERY LIFE : 50Hrs or more using a premium grade alkaline 9 Volt type.

  • EXTERNAL POWER ADAPTER / SUPPLY : An external AC adapter (not supplied) can be used and access is through a standard DC power jack situated next to the jack sockets. It uses the standard negative centre pin connection protocol used by many leading manufacturers. Internal onboard filtering ensures that optimum low noise performance is maintained and diode protection provides peace of mind in case or polarity setting mistakes.

  • ERGONOMIC DESIGN : The position of the jack sockets and DC power jack are all on the same side of the enclosure and face away from you thus enabling the effect to be optimally positioned in pedal board set-ups.

  • SIZE : Width 170 x Depth 112 x Height 57mm. Weight: 640g with battery.
