1930s Frank Wolf '2-to-1' Model Snare Drum

Size : 6.5 x 14

Finish : Black Diamond Pearl

1930s Frank Wolf snare drum featuring the '2-to-1' tension model. The drum is equipped with 12 lugs up top and 6 on the bottom. Frank's theory is that the batter side head should tuned a couple of steps higher than the resonant side (possibly contrary to modern tuning techniques), however the result was some unique snares that were only produced for a limited time. Frank opened a shop across the street from Manny's Music in NY. He was primarily a 'drummer supply house' and began offering drums in the 1930s, closing doors soon afterwards.
