Topic: My last experience with Taylor Imagineering
Message: Posted by: Sean-Paul (Jul 2, 2018 02:25PM)
After my last experience working with I decided that had to tell the Magic Cafť community about it.

I first worked with Christoper back in 2012 when I purchased Real Ghost2 (which is no longer available) I used it in my show www.intriguetheater.com and that segment has become one of the most talked about segments in my show that something that if for some reason I can't do the effect - it makes me sick - because it is so strong and one of the most talked about segments of the show.

Since then I went on to purchase the newer versions of the same effect in Wraith, and now most recently Geist. Christoper has evolved each product so much that it is worth buy them to replace the previous version.

If you don't know how the real Ghost Effect works - it is a JAMES BOND gadget that allows someone to experience a ghostly touch. But the Beauty of it is that is CAN NOT be automatically labelled as an electronic effect. The Fox Sisters back in 1848 could have used this principle to some degree but Christopher has brought the effect and gimmick to the 21 century.

Finally - I will not say what I am doing with this gimmick because I want to keep this routine to myself - but I feel that I need to sing the praises of Christopher because he is such a gentleman and when I get in a bind - he will ship me products overnight and deals with any issues with the highest degree of professionalism and concern.

I have bought more than half of his products and look forward to future releases of his current products as I have always enjoyed and appreciated the UPGRADES. I will also say that for all the things I appreciate in Christopher Taylor - there are many in this industry I CANNOT say the same about. Won't say any names, but the bad guys out there certainly make you appreciate a first class guy who produces top notch products with Steller customer service.

Thanks again Christoper for what you offer to the community!

Always a pleasure to deal with Christopher, not yet partaken of any of his electronic effects yet but know when I do I will have no worries about the gadgets or the customer service.

With many bad seeds in the business it is nice to have gentlemen like Christopher. Great products and outstanding service.

I have purchased many items (electronic and non-electronic) from Taylor Imagineering. each time the customer support and product has exceeded all expectations. Mr Taylor has taken his time to answer questions and provide insight based on my needs not his agenda. I could not be happier with the experience, support, and products.

Eclipse
The Bell
Ghost 2
All these items bought from Christopher are absolutely marvelous. I just had an issue with eclipse after years of use. The problem was solved immediately !
I'm really thinking about buying Geist!
So Christopher, you'll have a phone call very soon I think !

I have purchased a few effects from Christopher, most recently his pocket index, and I always find his products and service to be of a very high quality. I have no hesitation to recommend. Love and strawberries, Sawi x

I also love my Eclipse.

I also love my Eclipse and also Equinox. I really would like to do the "Toss out lie detector" routine with the Eclipse, but I have not had the bal... to do it yet. I have only used it in close-up situations.

I am the happy owner of MANY Taylor Imagineering products. Christopher and Derek are the best!

Adam: Using Eclipse in a "Tossed Out" manner is awesome but I understand your reluctance. There are a few things you can do to ensure success: Make sure you identify the person you are tossing the purse to and have them stand up to catch it; make sure that they do the same thing when they toss it. Point out that it is not a Frisbee and they are to toss it carefully so no one gets hurt. As soon as each person catches it -- if the key coin is still in the purse -- ask them to "give the purse a little shake" to make help sure everything settles to where it should be. Try it!

All the best,

Christopher

I can only add my two cents that I have enjoyed buying from Christopher over the years. His creativity is only matched by his decency. Something in a bit of short supply these days I guess...

Ive' got to add my 3 cents in here. Last night, I sent Christopher a question about one of his products. By 1:00 this afternoon, I had separate e-mails from both Christopher as well as Derek giving me advice. Amazing service! His products are also top notch! I really can't recommend this company highly enough. I just wish others in the industry gave this kind of service!

Great company to purchase from with and an absolute gentleman to deal with.

I have many of Christopherís products and have just bought his latest one, the TI Sharpie. Fantastic bit of kit and Iím really looking forward to using it, from order to delivery took 3 days....not to shabby when it was dispatched from Canada and was on my office desk in the U.K.

Brilliant service!

Ian.

It is new and so far it has only been available to members of the Taylor Imagineering FB page. It will be coming to our website soon. In the mean time, it makes a great thumper and here is a clip for you to see some of the PK applications: https://youtu.be/WoHVpA_7Ql8

I appreciate their creativity, honest trailers and the versatility of their multi-purpose devices . The costumer service is amazing. I own only OHM 2 but I'm planning to buy another items from them. I remember before I buy it ,I sent many messages to Christopher and he helped me very much about choosing the right product for me without complaining about my trillion questions.
I like OHM very much . I surprise how people here get excited about one trick pony electronic devices while they can build an entire act only using OHM and no one chimes about it.
I like all their products line, but recently Gemini caught my attention more than the others. Definitely Gemini is far better than buying dedicated electronic magnetic detector which will be priced similar to Gemini but Gemini can do more and you can incorporate it in many different effects not only one routine.
Kudos to Christopher Taylor and his team! :)

A few weeks ago I bought spectral wind and equinox at taylor engeneering. Both products are made very well. I am very happy with it.
However Spectral wind stopped working, because of a defect in the on/of switch. Can happen of course.

Christopher howeever sent me a complete new set (transmitter + receiver + toe switch). this all by dld express.
And I got this two days later.

This is a excellent service from christopher. I wanted to let this know to everyone here in the magic Cafť.

Thank you christopher.
