    I'd like to offer you $100 for the Speed King pedal with original gold paint that maybe a prototype.

    Please let me know.

    I wanted to contact you again about the Speed King Prototype. Can we talk about me getting that pedal for my collection?

    Please let me know,

    I collect Ludwig bass drum pedals from 1909 to 1969. I saw this post the other day. I would love to have this Speed King version for my collection! Any possibility you would sell it to me sir?

    Thank you,


    Hereís a photo of what I believe to be one of the first Speed King pedals which Iíve just recently bought (havenít quite got it yet). It was advertised as 1936 (maybe a prototype?) William F. Ludwig started his company properly the next year if I remember right and patented the design for the internal twin springs inside the posts. On my earlier version they are still outside - the later design obviously worked better! On the upper section of the footboard it says ĎTwin Spring - Speed King - pat pendí
    . The original paint on this one is gold coloured.

    I use a couple of the later 50ís Speed King pedals - great design!
