Egyptian Die Box (Shenanigan’s Die Box) by Mel Babcock(c. 2012) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
Another great stage item from Magic House of Babcock, better known as Shenanigan’s Die Box or Bud West’s Die Box.
This is one of the cleverest variations on the classic apparatus. Its unique three-door design really creates a con1.1ncing illusion of emptiness. lt also allows for a really cleser “peek-a-boo” effect that truly enhances the sucker bit. The audience is positive they actually see the die in the box, when it is supposed to have “vanished.” And speaking of the inside of the box, it is brightly colored which really makes the vanish convincing as opposed to a dark black interior usually found in Die Boxes.
One thing I want to make clear is that this is not the regular Bud West Die Box that Mel Babcock has made. Even those he made in limited quantities, but this one, the giant size was really limited in production. This is really the perfect size. The block is 4″ cubed. lt is big enough to be seen in the largest venue, but small enough to handle easily in small venues like a classroom or comedy club. And, needless to say, the woodwoork is perfect.
Approx. Price: $275.00 (2013) ***Notice: I am not a dealer and this item is not for sale on this site. It maybe available in the links below or at our sister site: qualitymagicsales.com, but not from here so please do not ask.
