Makin’ Sparks by Sylvester the Jester

(c. 1996) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)

The Funkenring started off as a joke-shop item and was adapted to work for magic c. 1983.  See Brad Reeder’s and Bill Robinson’s book: Sparks: The Funkenring Book for details.

Effect: This Utility Item is making more than sparks. When I perform, I include Makin Sparks and it creates an Explosion! It adds Flare and Excitement. You can include it in a close up setting or up on stage for hundreds. Very versatile and easy to use.

Definitely recommend having plenty of flints and batteries handy. You will use it over and over. It’s just lots of fun to use and perform. You will use this Makin Sparks – Electric Funken Ring. Guaranteed !!!


This thing is great! Dan Sylvester has come up with a battery operated Funkenring. Press the battery to the connect points and you get a fan of sparks up to about a foot in length. And because it’s battery operated the sparks will last as long as you want. The unit is about 2 ½ inches long and 2 inches wide, and it sends sparks in different directions, depending on how you hold it. Both the battery and the flint are easily replaceable. I’m going to have a ball with this thing. You probably will, too. Highly recommended.

    Makin Sparks

    Great product. Keep the battery fresh and change the flint and you’ll have years of service. I’ve had mine over 12 years and it’s still going strong…..
