This is another winner from John Kennedy. This coin is available in many different versions. I found the 1/2 dollar size to be the best. So many effects can be accomplished without alot of slight of hand.
The workmanship is top notch and while the coin should not be viewed from the side the routines make this easy.
This is a far better product than the Wong coins and should not be confused with them at all.
I would suggest buying the extra dvd as there are many great routines that are not on the included dvd.
Coin magicians will love this product and will come up with many different productions and vanishes.
Chance Wolf appears to be unable to make a wrong move. His last offering was the amazing Cellulator and it apepared perfect as it was. But now Chance comes along with the Phone-Ale as a really amazing Finale to the Cellulator.
The Phone-Ale is made to exceptional high standards and uses a great gimmick for loading the phone into the box – easy to set and very clean in operation. It looks great and will last a lifetime.
These days I peform less "proppy" magic, but I have decided that for my big christmas show that I perform to the company each year – the Cellulator and Phone-Ale will be a key piece of the magic. I just love the whole premise.
I have sold many incredible magic tricks over the years, some of which I miss, but the Phone-Ale along with the Cellulator are part of my more permanent collection, and I’m very pleased to see them there!
As usual this item is Highly Recommend for Performers everywhere!
The effects in this book are easy to follow and are easily fitted into anyones routines. They are hard hitting and will fool all laypeople and magicians alike. There are not to many moves that have to be practiced and any magician will be able to perofrm all the effects with minimal practice (although as always a beginner will need to practice practice practice. But this would be the same for any trick with any beginner)
I enjoyed this book and use some of the routines all the time
As one of the premiere authors on magic and magicians, Walter Gibson performed an invaluable service for the magic community by compiling this tome dedicated to sleight of hand and entertainment. This is a "must-have" book for those seriously invovled in the art and it will lead you expertly through the most useful techniques of close-up manipulation of cards, coins, balls, thimbles, etc. He has even included a section on Mental Magic as a form of close-up.
Gibson’s skill at leading one through clearly defined moves is augmented by critically angled photographs of the author’s hands in action. Included with all this are the tips and secrets to overcoming some of the serious difficulties entertainers often experiene when performing crucial sleights.
Though out of print for some time now, copies can still be found in a variety of book dealer websites. I have had a copy for 28 years and still use it to learn and review from. This will keep you busy for a long time.
Along with Bobo’s masterpiece on coins, Ganson’s manipulation series, and Garcia’s extensive writings, Gibson’s work will always rank among the most important teaching tools in Magic.
You might have seen this on the last set of DVD’s from Richard Osterlind – the impact on the audience is amazing! The effect is as follows: three different books are shown and one is freely chosen (no force). The magicain flips through the book and asks the spectator to stop where they want. The page that is stopped at is looked at by the spectator and the page number is noted. The spectator keeps hold of the book. The magician shows two pieces of laminated cardboard and writes the name of the book on one side and the page number on the other and sandwiches the two pieces of card together. Then a magical gesture follows. The spectator is asked to look for their page in the book and they turn to the page and find that the page has been ripped out! It has been in their hands all along! The two pieces of card are separated and there between them is the ripped out page and it matches perfectly!
This is a truly stunning effect. The props are a bit on the cheap side, but they do not detract from the magic at all. This is an effect you will surely perform!
Here we have another incredible piece of furniture quality magic from those amazing guys over at Magic Wagon. The props are flawless and whilst the method is not new, everything is dressed up so well that the secret is impossible to spot.
What is particularly nice about this outfit is that you can use it to divine many types of object because anything that fits in the neat little ring boxes can be used. You can divine which one contains the $100 (or whatever) without even touching the bags or the boxes. You can even be out of the room when the boxes are placed in the bags and moved around.
1. I have been performing Magic for 50 years. 2. I collect Rising Cards.
I have Anverdi’s, Ken Brooke’s Nemo Rising Cards, El Ducos, Abbott’s Newest Nu-Power, Mikame’s, and many, many other rising card decks.
Simply put, the rising cards are classics of magic and audiences love this effect…its very magical, mystical and entertaining!
When I saw the ads for Martin Lewis’ version of the Hathaway Rising Cards….well…..if you’ve ever seen Marting Lewis perform……its a no-brainer…Martin does killer commercial magic!
This is a QUALITY prop for working performers thats easy to use and packs a maximum wallop. As it says in the ads…….it plays BIG on stage…and has everything going for it that you could ask for…..the involvement of an audience volunteer, and a commercial, entertaining and mystical presentation.
Plus, the included DVD instructions give you tips and pointers that are right on the money!
Do yourself a favor……..just buy it while they are still being made…..you won’t regret it.
