Hi,

I collect Ludwig & Ludwig, Ludwig, WFL, Leedy & Ludwig and Ghost bass drum pedals from 1909 through 1969. Always searching for pedals that fit the bill! I found this post in that search. If its available I'd love to know. Other pedals I'm looking for are attached! Please let me know if you have a lead for me ladies and gents!

After the war though WFL started up again making zephyr lugs and regular sets again but it was within a years time that WFL senior designed the classic lug and shortly after the next speed king design that also included the hi-hat. I would guess 1947-48 is when the next design came out. I think that beater is original. I have one like it with lambs wool.

It's hard to put a value on them though as it's not something I would most likely bring to a gig. Maybe 75-100 bucks?
Thanks for the education and info Kurt!

I responded to your PM. I don't have any of the others you are looking for. I have a Leedy & Ludwig hihat stand, but no BD pedal.

The pedal is from the late 20's to into the 30's.The beater is right.You see another hole nest to the beater it could be used for another beater-{ i seen that}- but i say the other hole is for a stricker for a hoop mounted cymbal...Mikey
