Bass Drum Pedals: The first designs incorporated a pendulum-type beater hanging from the top of the bass drum hoop. This beater was connected via a cord or rod to a foot pedal or directly to the player’s shoe. While this accomplished its intended purpose, it was unfortunately slow to respond. I’m just speculating here, but it was probably some diligent drummer observing the action of a piano key that came up with acam-action pedal mounted to the bottom bass drum hoop. This shortened version could keep up with the quickened tempos of ragtime, the popular music of the day.

It was this quest that spawned the largest and most recognizable drum dynasty of the twentieth century: The Ludwig Drum Company. William F. Ludwig and his brother Theobald applied for and were granted a patent for an improved version of the bass drum pedal in 1909. The first production pedal was described in the 1936 Ludwig Drummer article “Twenty-five years of pedal progress” as “the foundation of the Ludwig company, and the first floor-type foot pedal with elevated shaft produced in America.” Initially, Ludwig & Ludwig Company, located in the old Omaha Building in Chicago, only produced bass drum pedals. This early pedal included a cymbal striker, an extension arm on the beater shaft that would simultaneously strike a hoop mounted cymbal. In 1913 an improved version was offered, which was lighter in weight and included a fold-out heel plate.
