This is not all that I own but is a good bunch of them.
4- speed king,, I own two more Wfl's not shown.
1-Ludwig Speed master.
2- Slingerland Tempo kings.
1- DW turbo accelerator 2000 model with footboard weights this pedal configuration is no longer made it is my all time fav pedal and the only one that I use.
1-W/A with a unique footboard.
1-Leedy XL.
1-Leedy Professional.

I have owned 4 Premier 252 pedals, a couple of Sonor pedals, Also 3 Dw 5000 accelerators current models the ones now made in china what junk they are, also a DW 9000 was not impressed at all by it either. A Ludwig brand new ghost pedal hated that thing also.

I have two 60's Speed Kings in cherry-condition in case one of them breaks. My main pedal and a good spare is all I need.

Rogers Big R - why would anyone need anything else?



But I also have a Ghost, vintage Camco and a late 80's Yamaha that
used to be my main pedal until I snagged my sweet Big R back from
my brother...

Digging some of those bigger soft looking vintage beaters!

Don't see any hard beaters in your mix though

Good thread. We don't talk enough about these cool old pedals:

2 Ludwig speed kings
1 Slingerland tempo king
1 Slingerland AA
1 Tama iron cobra

Speed kings top them all. But I also like my AA pedal a lot. Plays nicely and has such great looking footboard!

Eric. ha ha thx, actually the DW 5000 pedal beater is a hard white felt beater with the extended length shaft, I do have a extended length Danmar shaft red wooden beater also. I play 26" and 28" bass drums, so that is the reason for the extended shaft beaters.

once the brass ceases to glitter, and the drum looses its luster, and the stage remains dark, all you have left is the timbre of family.

1-1965 Ludwig Speed King-I am still using it. I clean and re-grease it every year.

2-1972 Ludwig Speed Kings. In original boxes. One has been used for a couple of gigs, the other hasn't been touched, except for a cleaning and re-greasing.

I've played all sorts of pedals, old, new, expensive, cheap.

The Speed King is the best. AJAX? Pearl? DW? Slingerland?(trash) Camco? Rogers?(be serious).

All second rate as far as I am concerned, but a lot of people like them and I am happy for them.

I use hard felt, wooden, and plastic beaters for different settings. I have a 20" BD and a 26" BD.

Boolah boolah!
