I just got my custom pouch that Gazzo made for me for my Canada tour.

As far as I am concerned this is the best pouch in the world. The leather is the finest you can tell by just touching it. It is beautiful to look at with Brown and Black woven finish to it, a real touch of top class. I love the finish as it matches my cups.

I can't believe how small I can get the mouth of the pouch and still get the melon out of it. With the extra pockets this is a hand made pouch I will be proud to use for many years.

It will appear in my show tomorrow either at Granville Island, Robson Street or English Bay.

I am a very happy Street Performer.

Many thanks Gazzo.

Mario,

I couldn't agree more. Gazzo gave me one of his hand me down pouches that he used in the 80's. I hit it with some saddle soap and 20 years later the thing is still like brand new. I have been using it every day for the past few weeks and it is a thing of beauty.

Best,

Dan-

Mario,

I've seen your show; very impressive! Excellent sleight-of-hand
and a well developed character. You deserve a pouch that was
made by the master - Gazzo.

I told you it would be worth both the wait and the money.

Mario and I had a long discussion about the merits of different colours for his pouch. I went for red and just love the end result. I'm out this weekend doing the Bradford Festival (www.bradfordfestival.com), it's Steet Entertainers Weekend and I'm the only magician on the bill so the pouch will be out and about, good pouch, crap magic!

Sorry we didn't get the chance to meet up again before you headed off. Tell me Mario, did Dippy go with you?

Mario,
I also most certainly agree with you. Gazzo’s craftsmanship and the quality of the materials are top notch. I have used a number of pouches over the years, but nothing compares with the quality of this one! I try not to abuse my props, but with the demands of street/festival work, props do take a beating. Without a doubt, it will withstand the demands I put upon it. I know it will outlast me!

Gazzo’s pouch is a work of art, but it is also a heavy duty, functional tool for your work. If Gazzo makes a pouch for you, you will not be disappointed.

Mario,

I had a chance to be with Gazzo during a good portion of the making of your pouch, among some others he was constructing. I can easily tell you and anyone else willing to listen, that his work is impeccable. I saw the amount of detail that goes into this work, and got a pretty good idea how much time it takes him to make these. If anyone had doubts that these are knocked out in short order, I will quickly tell you different. Gazzo's pouches are truly among the finest craftsmanship I have had the pleasure to see.

Oh, and I love the brown and black design. That was my favorite!

If you want pictuers Fawkes, have a look on http://www.magicpitch.com that will give you the idear of what we are talking about.

Yesterday I was working the Jazz Festavel I spun off three nice circle shows and then headed down English Bay for one more. Caught a show by Byron great show afterward we polished of a few bears and talked about how much we hate Magicians that cant talk about any thing else than card, tricks funny stuff. I mean yesterday I just finished a show and while I was still taking my hat this idiot was trying to show me coin tricks, I am not intersted get a life man.

Mario,
You would think these guys would realize that we are working and that time is money. I’m afraid that sometimes I’m not as gracious and patient as I should be with these folks.

Best wishes up North!

RWhit,
These guys usually have a "I'll show you what I can do." kind of attitude. If you are working, they should know that it is not the time, nor the place for this sort of thing.

Occasionally, it is a kiddo who has a trick to show me and maybe their parents are even watching. Of course, this is a different situation and without question a time to be cordial.

In any case, you can usually get the result you want by saying with a smile, "Sorry, I have to get back to work now." Most people get the message.

(Ooops! This is beginning to be off subject - Gazzo's pouch.)

I just received my custom pouch and it's FANTASTIC!!! I'm absolutely thrilled with look, feel, and craftsmanship. The customer service I received from Magicpitch, (including the phone chats with Gazzo about my custom pouch) was second to none!
It's amazing to me how much this pouch can hold and look the same as when it's empty.
Thanks so very much for a job that far exceeded my expectations which were high indeed, and for a beautiful, prefect pouch that I will use for the rest of my life and then pass on to the next generation.
Keep up the great work Gazzo and Steve and you can count on my business again soon.

All the best,
Jim

As you know you have a great pouch, the more you use it the more you will fall in love with it.
What was the finsh pattern on yours?

Jim
Byron from England, is great laugh he fooled me I thought he was from England, as he turns out he is from BC. We had a few pints and shared a few story`s. He is now in Scotland for the Fringe I will catch up with him for sure.
