Topic: Just Have to Say, "The GREAT Steve Dusheck"
Message: Posted by: Mb217 (Dec 20, 2010 11:10AM)
I was just looking through an old DVD, [b]Steve Dusheck, The 1982 Lecture[/b], and when it comes to rings, strings and things here, this is very hard to beat. Dusheck did this a long time ago and then put it into a DVD format in 2005 from old film for about $10 I think. Quite a deal when you look at the price of DVDs nowadays.

In it are about 20 of his original tricks, many if not all of them are just brilliant pieces of magic that you can make yourself easy enough and he shows you how on most of them. His [b]Dusheck's Dollar, Dollar Punch, FunKey and Ringer[/b] just to name a few are so clever they bear repeating and that's why they have withstood the test of time, along with some of his other big tricks like [b]Copper/Silver Transpo (Now sold by Theory 11 as "Digital Dissolve"), Lethal Tender (Yes, LT is his also), Waltzing Matilda and Wunderbar[/b]. Dusheck has created literally 1000s of wonderful tricks, written several magic books on various genre's of magic and has been a successful working Pro. He has created magic for some of the best magicians in the world and continues doing some of that still to this day with his wonderful series of Business Card Tricks, special orders he only does for his closest friends.

He has known and been a part of the greater magic circles with the best out there then and now. They all know him and admire his work. He is a true craftsman and a tremendously honest and good person. His magic is wonderful and it's a real treat to look into how all this stuff is actually made and marketed. His DVD is more than worth it and should be on the magic shelf of anyone that has ever said the magical word, ABRACADABRA! Simply amazing stuff! I just had to say it yet again.

While at his website, purchase his Predicto Penny (it's a Bz Cd Trick); It will kill most every magician (it they admit it!). I use it all the time to mooch free coffee.

He's a great guy and literally unknown.

As he keeps telling me, he is retired! He hit the magic market with numerous great little tricks years ago. All were killers, and dealers and manufacturers quickly ripped them off for higher profit margins. Steve has no "ill will" against this action, what a great attutide.

Yes, Steve is a great guy and very helpful. His magic is top notch.

If you do not buy his CD of tricks, you are only hurting yourself and depriving a great magical experience from your audiences.

Came across his [b]Ringer[/b] recently completely by luck but boy is it a remarkable little piece of magic. Clever is an understatement about this as it pertains to any discussion about the Ring Flight genre of magic.

I said it before and I'll say it again, "Unless God makes one of these, I'll be using Dusheck's." Remarkable! :)

*Hey also came across this on Dusheck's [b]Coin Card[/b], yet another miraculous effect from this tireless magical mind. Just simplistically beautiful!

I still have a lot of his original effects that were made by Sterling Magic (When they used to make quality stuff) Power Ring Flight, Lethal Tender, Head Out, Card Coin, Wonder Bar and his Waltzing Matilda although not sure if the last 2 were made by Sterling.

Steve is one of the brightest minds and nicest guys in magic. I first met Steve while working at Hollywood Magic back in the mid 80's. When ever he was in town he would always stop by one or both of the shops and would demo all his stuff for customers and he would make sure that we were able to demo his stuff...LOL. I remember one Sat afternoon at the Costa Mesa store he sold at least a dozen Wonder Bars and probably half a dozen Lethal Tenders in less than 2 hours...man those were the days!!!

Another Brilliant effect By Steve that I use all the time is his Confounding Coffer.
a coin is removed from a ring box the coin vanishes, the re appears again and again in the ring box..

Yes Godfather, you are right, [b]Confounding Coffer[/b] is also quite brilliant as to the workings and the presentation. And that [b]Coin Card[/b] is pretty slick as well. ;) Again, what a great DVD from a wonderful magic creator.

All this stuff is still very much excellent and quality magic at its finest! :)

Ah, I remember that thread. For a man who has been ripped off, had deserved money virtually taken from him, over a period of many years, Steve's attitude in that thread was sterling. And I think there are many people who know Steve much better than you or I who are in a MUCH better position to speak of Steve's attitude toward these things.

I have been looking for an original "Confounding Coffer" for some time, without luck. I made one per the instructions on the DVD (Steve no longer produces the item), but would like an original. Great effect.
