"RELIC" Speed King pedals are the same as "SUPER" pedals but have their original paint intact instead of refinished powder coating.  the condition and wear of the paint will be different for every pedal and that's what makes them so cool!
VITALIZER DRUMS is proud to announce that we will be continuing the high-quality Speed King restoration process that Jesse Carraway of DrumMechanix has become known for worldwide.
all pedals are meticulously restored with respect given to preserving original, factory condition while also implementing practical modifications to allow for reliable contemporary use.  all "RELIC" Speed King pedals have received the restoration, modification & refinishing processes outlined below.
complete respectful disassembly & inspection.  variation and build date determined.  removal of 100% of old grease, goo, crust, grime & slime.  original ludwig ball bearings cleaned in a heated ultrasonic cleaner with polyphonic’s proprietary solution.  selected parts reshaped, modified, repaired or replaced (as necessary).  internal parts tumble blasted.  all threads chased and lubricated for easy adjustment.  final inspection of all parts.  lubrication with synthetic teflon-based grease.  reassembly, adjustment, tuning & play testing.  finished pedals are metal stamped with the pedal #, date restored & variation.
