Does anyone know what kind of "squeaker" Kevin King is using in his balloon gag from
his "Watch Steal" video?

It can't be from a regular hand squeaker (or can it?) because the squeaker seems to get plugged-up with spit if it's in the mouth.

-Thanks,

Howdy:

It is almost certain that it IS one of those squeaker thingies taken from the little bulb squeakers. The trick to it is in fact NOT letting it get filled with spit.

I know that if you have tried it, as I have, that the above statement seems like some noxious Catch-22, but there you go. I have seen about 6 friends who conquered it so I can tell you that it CAN be done, but it takes time, etc. Go for it.

Best,
Brad Burt

Brad,
Thanks for the response. You know when I was kid I had that "ventrillo" right out of the comic books.

It was 2 pieces of convex-shaped metal held together with wrapped thread. It was kept in your mouth and it made a sound like the balloon. Because of the way it was constructed, it didn't get clogged up.

I know you are a magic dealer, Brad. Would you happen to know where to get a ventrillo of days past?

-Thanks,
Asmayly
