New Ludwig Speed Flyer and Speed King reviewed by Carter McLean


Senior Member

The Speed Flyer looks like a pedal I would definitely use (if I wasn't already happy with my Tama Speed Cobra). Pedals have improved so much in the past 25 years, everyone is making great pedals now it seems.

I know some of you like the Speed King, but just watching Carter play it I can tell it's not for me. It definitely has less power and a "stiffer" action. Too old fashioned for my taste.

The Speed Flyer is basically the Atlas Pro, with some cosmetic and minor mechanical tweaks. I've been using the Atlas since 2015 and am very happy with it. Feel-wise they seem the same, so I'm not in a hurry to upgrade. What I mean is, if you find a new Atlas Pro, grab it and save a few bucks. The Speed Flyer is $199, Atlas Pro should be $150 while they last :)
