What should I ask for this 60s speed king pedal that I am selling ? It's going to have to be cleaned and greased .

Thanks

Rob

As long as it cycles fine as is.....might not need to grease it. If you push it down and it cycles several times before stopping ....that's better than 95% of them.

Hmm. I didn't realize that foam cushion underneath was stock. Nearly always missing. I just got one with half the foam left....and assumed it was added by a previous owner.

A pedal for the world's finest 60's Ludwig kit. Should be in the $150-$200 range.....worth around what the modern ones are selling for in new or near new condition.

Take the screws out of the bottom of pedal and see what ‘condition’ the grease is in on the springs. As Tama CW wrote you may not have to…PLUS, could be someone wanting the pedal in the original condition it’s in.

Average used, working condition, about $50.
New are right at $200.

If I were buying a NOS pedal to complete a period correct kit I might go $200.
If I were buying a SK to use as my player, I would buy a solid used $50 pedal and service it (if needed) to my own satisfaction.

I think NOS in this case is a tough sell, small market share, especially since they make a near look-alike new, with a warranty.

Do you know how old the pedal is? Interwebs says made between 1958 - 2000. This might help you for that person looking for the perfect match for their vintage kit.
Is there any documentation/paperwork in the box that makes this a complete NOS time capsule? Maybe even a receipt?

I’ve got a box full of $25-30 Speed Kings I’ve pick up. However, NOS in the box I’m guessing would bring $150-200

This one was produced 1968-1972. After this, the tabs at the tower base were shortened to accommodate wider bass drum hoops.
