New Ludwig Speed King


Senior Member
Has Ludwig solved the problem of the "feet" being too deep on the hoop? I was playing with an older one the other day, I had to keep backing it off away from the hoop before I clamped it down, otherwise the drive mechanism would scrape against the head. It seemed like it was barely clamped on the hoop. On other pedals, I slide them under the hoop as far as they will go and it's perfect. The older Speed Kings had to be backed way off, so they were only about 50% (or less) under the hoop while clamped.
You used the pedals for he deeper Ludwig hoops...other models don’t have those short “feet” or “wings.” Put a pencil between the hoop and pedal to solve the depth problem.
