* Vintage Ludwig L 201 Speed King Bass Drum Pedal *. Up for auction is a vintage Ludwig L201 Speed King Bass Drum Pedal. This is the Ludwig Bassdrum pedal , before Axis or Demon Drive made Direct Drive pedals cool, this bad boy was there. Bonham or Buddy, both rocked it on one of these. Twin compression springs, reversable heel plate and hard felt beater. It's in decent condition for it's age although there are a few marks and scratches on the pedal, mainly on the spring posts. It's all cosmetic and in no way alters the play of this classic pedal. It's in good working order for half a century old! Please see photos for details what you see you will get.
