Default Midnight Special Speed Cobra

As listed on Tama's website. I think it has to do with the 20th anniversary of the Cobra pedals or something. It's a limited edition speed cobra and it's all black with copper trim. I'm a sucker for anything labeled limited edition and if I was ever going to get the speed cobras now would probably be the time. I'm not sure how or when they'll be available or for how long, I think it has something to do with Black Friday.
Anyway, here's the link, check them out for yourself!

If you like the way they play, go for it.

Might be a bit hard to see if you ever need to
adjust something while playing a darkly lit venue though - ha ha.

Have to admit that black and copper combo is sharp looking. Question is at how much of a premium over the price of a normal speed cobra?

I've seen a few on ebay and some online drum shops all selling for $449.99 as well. The original pedals go for $399.99 everywhere I've looked. I don't think I'd mind putting up the extra 50 bucks. After all, looks are everything, right?

Sure - why not.

I've discovered many times that a price statement without a link is just a rumor.

there you go.

it sucks that the regular speedcobras cost 399$ (296 euros) in the US, and most European stores list them at 425 euros (572$)
...I wanna move.

Anyone know what the "special finish" actually is? The harder/more durable the better, obviously.

They look badass.

I would make sure I like playing them first obviously but I would be proud to have them on my kit.

They look cool, and'll look cool if they don't get any wear, but after a year or two of use they'll look lame, the more use/wear they get the lamer they'll look.

TAMA should've put some R&D into their feeble drive/connecting shaft, they'd been better of for it. The bling thing is just a money grab IMO.

I agree they look badass....killer look. I have a regular speed cobra and I feel it's a great pedal to begin with...very smooth and responsive.
