We just came off of International Clown Week (August 1 to 7) so here's a great Clown set.

1960's Gretsch 20/12/14/5.5x14 in Mint Condition that belonged to the Zuhrah Funsters out of Minnetonka, MN.

It's also the only multi-band finish Round Badge Gretsch drum set that I know of though I have seen marching drums. Any other sets out there?

Beep Beep!

Great set! My question would be did they offer this color combo option in the Gretsch like Rogers catalogs?
Wow! Cool set with a side order of Bongo Madness.
I don't recall Gretsch offering combo color swatches in their catalogs but they would offer marching drums in Tri-Tone Finishes.

Thanks! Any excuse to post a picture of my Rogers. So Gretsch offered it in their text and not in the swatch page. Got it. Great score. Thanks for sharing it. Gary

Those green sparkle inlays are nice looking.

Those green sparkle inlays are the perfect finish for that kit!

This finish is just un-freaking real.... How did they do those duco sparkles anyway? Is that a custom-made wrap or did somebody really painstakingly align a strip of blue between two strips of silver sparkle?? (Or yellow-red in case of the shrinner's one)

I believe that is typically how it was done. I know that some wraps these days are printed like that and some are cut and layered in by hand. Modern Salesman wraps are almost always printed that way these days.
