All right fellow magicians... how are you all doing? Fine I hope.

Do any of you magicians out there use the TT in your routines. I bought one and Darwin's 101 TT Tricks and I am currently working my way through the booklet. So if any of you use a TT what tricks do you do.

Best Regards

Take Care all of you MAGIC

How is that booklet, James? I've been meaning to buy a book and a tt, but I don't know where I would start with one.

I saw Cellini do an awesome silk color change with a TT. It was incredible because of his handling of the effect. So simple, yet in his hands it was like looking at a living, breathing, practical and functional piece of artwork.

It humbled me. A big ego is a problem in the magic community. I did not even understand my own fully, until this trick showed me what real magic is. Often, the simplest of ingredients are the only things needed to perform illusions of great wonder and spectacle.

I can still remember the chills of excitement when I first got a TT, but it seems lots of layman know of its existence, with plenty of cheap packet tricks including a TT.
Are there any resources out there (preferably video) that would do justice to such an ingenious device? Would really love to learn how to handle a TT beautifully.
Thanks y'all Smile

James,
Figured I went off track here, abt the tricks I do,
*billswap
*cigarette thru tie
*silk production
* cut and restored
*salt shaker (can't remember the exact name of this one, but you show your hand being empty and pour out salt from your palm)

Cheers! BTW there's another TT thread in this section as well. Smile
thanks y'all

TT in one hand together with a sugar cube (both concealed). Pour a sachet of sugar (the sort found in cafés) into your hand (actually) into the TT. Steal the tip and sugar in the usual way. The sugar has apparently become a cube. Gets a great reaction, out of all proportion to the simple method.
There are 10 kinds of people: those who understand binary numbers, and those who don't.

The book you have bough is great -not in dimension I mean. But I also recommend you to buy the Milbourne Christopher's "50 tricks wit a TT." It is cheap and GREAT.. Smile Smile Smile Smile Smile

I like the 41 cent miracle in Michael Ammar's Easy to Master Money Miracles.

I use it for a bill switch, vanishing bill, various small item switches or vanishes, and to levitate my business card.

Nappa,

Just trust me on this, buy a Vernet hard tip. No question, the best.

For those of you who are afraid that too many people know about the TT, try a FT instead. When people go looking for the TT and it's not there, they're extremely surprised (of course, they're looking in the wrong place, but don't know it).

I was burned bad by this and learned that way how effective it can be.

Appearing, color changing then vanishing silk.
In loving memory of Hughie Thomasson 1952-2007.

You brought something beautiful to this world, you touched my heart, my soul and my life. You will be greatly missed.

Until we meet again “my old friend”.

I have to disagree. The Vernet is really good, but I think the best TT's come from Magic Masters. But the bottom line is, it's a matter of personal preference. Just my opinion, for what it's worth.

Of course I use TT, I don't leave the house without it! I use my TT mostly in Bill switches.

I bought a TT and Darwin's book because I felt mastering a TT was a must. I was fairly disappointed with the booklet and videos I saw on the Net. The TT thus remained in my magic case, unused. I am presently taking a magic course and the teacher showed us how to handle the classic appearing/disappearing hanky. The moves he showed us are way beyond anything I had ever read in a book and because of his handling, I am willing to spend the time and effort to master this trick now.

All that to say that the way to handle a TT is greatly misunderstood by many authors and magicians. There must be some good literature or DVDs on the TT but Darwin's book is at best, a source of inspiration for effects, not handling.

Hope this helps...

Merry Christmas to all! Smile

I second the idea for the use of the finger tip, it reduces the number of effects you can do, I find, but it builds in a safety factor. Smile

There's some great handling and lots of varied effects on the following video: Secret Seminars of Magic with Patrick Page: Thumb Tips by L&L Publishing. Takes you way beyond the pamphlets mentioned above.
