The book SWITCH (mentioned above) is a great resource for anyone interested in the historic and modern handlings of bill switches. It is a delight to read and gives you a bunch a choices so you should be able to find one that fits what you need or more importantly what you want.

I have been using a TT-less switch for a number of years now and I LOVE it. More versatile, more impromptu. It is all personal preference.

Daniel Garcia has one on the first volume of his "Daniel Garcia Project." The same switch, I believe, is in the book "Switch."

Yes Daniel does have one in the Switch book, and very interesting, though not always practical solution...but there are some really great variations of the classic one hundred dollar bill switch both with a TT and without.

If you have a TT available, what are the advantages of a no TT bill switch over a TT version? I have heard people say that they prefer a "non-gimmicked" version. However, without TT, you still have to get rid of the other bill. At least with a TT, your hands are apparently completely empty, and you can ditch the TT at your leisure. The only advantage I see (aside from being impromptu and you are not carrying a TT) , is you typically don't have the fold the bill as many times with a no TT version. Any other advantages to a particular no TT bill switch from the spectators point of view or from a handling standpoint for the magician?

I prefer a tipless handling because it's smoother and you have fewer things to carry. I don't perform it impromptu at all, although I could. I just think the effect is too good to perform for free.

I'm looking into getting a good video camera, since I'm not inclined to do a write-up of my routines. A video explanation and demo is another story. I'll look into an e-commerce setup for selling a lecture DVD. I have so much material that I've come up with, I could easily do a lecture on it.

I do handlings both with and without a TT.

It depends on the venue and my preparedness at the time.

The sources listed above and especially John Lovick's book "Switch" is GREAT for ANY handling!

Don't give up on finding the right TT either, they have many uses!! Just keep trying the magic shops and I am sure you will find one that works for you!

The Juan switch is more anglely and sensitive to lighting from behind. It does us a tt but like most can be done without one.

For the same type of switch (Juan switch) without the limitations I would highly recommend "Skullkracker" by Bob Sheets.

Friend baskitboy5

Many thanks for replay, it was most kind of you.

But, I know that there are many topics here equal to many methods! . . .

What I pretend, in resume, based in the experience of many magicians with the bill switch, which is the best that be more practical more visual or more magical in the point view of spectator.

I utilize for a long time the bill switch of Michael Ammar with TT.

Any help it will be good.

You don't have to yell Falconer. In my opinion I get the best reactions out of Hundy 500. 5 ones to 5 hundreds is a pretty spectacular visual.
How many Magicians does it take to advertise a trick? Three.. One to steal the trick. One to steal HIS trick. And one to write a good review.

Actually, in the eye of the spectator they are all (or should be) ......THE SAME.

The change of one item into another. It is usually only us Magicians that see a difference, or think we do...............

Listen to a spectator and you will here "WOW, did you see that?!?!?!? he changed a piece of paper into a $20 dollar bill?!?!?!?

$100's always get a great reaction but so does plain paper to ANY money.

I can't remember ever hearing about method from a spectator....................

Heck, if they are aware that we did or did not use a TT, then we have a lot of other problems to worry about................
