Topic: DVDs that contain a bill switch using a TT? List um off.
Message: Posted by: Head Case (Feb 2, 2016 07:26PM)
I know for a fact that out of all my DVDs, I have seen the bill switch using a TT explained. Never really took note of it because I never used a TT when I got older. Well I just found an old TT from when I was younger along with a mismade bill. So I want to revisit this.

Please list of any sources on video that you know the effect is discussed in. Hopefully one of the videos I have will be mentioned. I'll start the search now, but hopefully someone can mention something and that will help speed up the process

Sankey, Ammar, sanders. I'm sure one of them has to have it.

As far as who has a better version, or teaches it better, it's up to what I already own, but feel free to leave your comments if you have any thoughts on learning it.

As a side question. How do you feel about doing the mismade bill using a TT vs just concealing the bill behind the other? Advantages, disadvantages?

Switch by John Lovick is the best purchase you can make for bill switches, both with and without TTs. Personally I started using a TT but now I do it tipless. Matter of personal preference, really. Both ways work well.

Bill Malone On The Loose #2 has the bill change and more great stuff.

Thanks Theodore. I have that. I'll pull it out and search for the routine tomorrow.

Much appreciated!

I've performed Mismade Bill without a TT for over 20 years. It's actually easier and more convincing, if using the right acquitment in the handling. I had to develop an acquitment that worked with the way that I naturally move.

Darwin has it on his TT lessons.
I think it was on Vol. 1

The best teaching imo is from Ammar's BOOK, The Magic of Michael Ammar. He adds a little subtlety that I think makes a big difference in a very smooth handling. I prefer using a TT for a convincing" empty hands" before and after the switch.

I learned it from Mike Kaslowski, who first wrote it up, in the early '70s, W/OUT a TT. I agree with Alan.

Another vote for W/O a TT.
And, there no need to fold it into 16ths (4 folds)
If you don't use a TT, 3 folds ( 8ths) works great and is more visual.
Easily finger palmed.

Except for those times, and it does happen, when someone says " Let me see your hands" unless you don't hand out the changed bill for exam. and you' ve not ditched the other. There is ALWAYS that one person. I'm so used to the TT that I would never change.
But to each his own. Whatever works for you.

The OP was asking for best Dvd instruction either way. The Ammar "book" is a great resource.

Never happened to me. Either with or w/o a TT.
They are so struck by the bill switch that by the rime they recover, everything is clean.
I usually hand them the bill after the switch with my dirty hand. That works well with both techniques.

Yea It's in his big hardbound Book! He has A full Routine. He produces It out of an Purse Frame, Does The change, And then Vanishes it back into the purse frame!

Sanders has a routine called Visi-Bill which uses a TT, and in Sanders style does a great job of explaining his routine, and how it differs from Klaus and others. Should find some great info in there.

Hope that helps!

Money Morph by Kevin King (it originally came out on VHS).
His technique is similar to the classic well known version, but he shares a few tips and in his handling the bill is always in motion.

This is in tandem to what I was going suggest but I was going to say it's even better from his In Concert book.
The idea of half moves is brilliant as well and well worth studying.

Don't fold the bill that small (it's a bit of a tell tale) and use a Sanada Gimmick if you're afraid of finger palming...

I have his book, but I never figured out what the little subtlety is. I know that he makes a big deal out of the fact that the bill is always in view (which I like), but my current bill switch already has that attribute.

Richard Sanders also has a DVD called VisiBill which uses a TT, one less fold than traditional bill switch.

Roger Klause has arguably put this effect on the map but the best book on the subject is switch by Jon Lovick ... http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/S7176. Ammar does a great job explaining it.

I have Jay Sankey - Hundred dollar miracles, love it, VisiBill is also very nice.
