Can't go wrong with the Speed King

By misterx420

Comments about Ludwig Speed King Single Pedal:

The best... I used to own an original Speed King and this is just as good. It even looks like the original. Dual internal springs give it great response to your foot. Excellent! I prefer to play barefoot and it's quite comfortable.

Great Classic Kick Pedal

By steve

Comments about Ludwig Speed King Single Pedal:

The Speed King is a classic pedal that does not dissapoint. Although there are not many ways to adjust the pedal to your liking, it has a very comfortable action and has a great feel. If you like to keep things simple and don't like to tweak your equipment all day long like I do, then this pedal is for you.

Ludwig Royalty !!

Comments about Ludwig Speed King Single Pedal:

The Ludwig L201 Speed King Pedal is totally awesome !! This pedal is an extremely good product from ludwig. You can't go wrong with this pedal. This product operates very smoothly and is very quick as far as response. The direct link device alows it to be very quick. I actually have a double bass kit and I actually use two speed king pedals. It is very wierd, but That is how good this pedal is. Overall, this pedal is great looking, has a great feel, very quick, and that all comes with Ludwig Quaility. You can't go wrong with this pedal. It's one of the best.

The Original Direct Drive

By Dogstarr1

Comments about Ludwig Speed King Single Pedal:

My first kit when I was a kid was a Ludwig Champagne Sparkle 5 piece with real maple rims and came with a Speed King. I loved the kit, but my best friend, hated the color and their little thumpy tone, talked me into selling them (I had no idea at the time that they were "Ringo inspired" future collectables or that Ludwig would someday re-issue them at a custom shop price), but I kept the Speed King because it already felt right. John Bonham was a dedicated Speed King user and actually close miked the pedal on a few tracks to catch the signature squeek that's qiven them the nickname Squeek King, but the direct drive linkage was the first and the speed and power of the pedal was unmatched in it's time. I actually can't remember where that old pedal ended up, I've since moved on to one of the new boutique direct drive pedals, but I still love the old Speed King, you probably will too...and it's still really fast.
