I recently got a TT for my birthday and wondered where I would have to look for a bill switch. I have no previous experience with this type of thing. By the way, I need a bill switch that will work with different coloured currency as I am using Australian currency.

Thanks in advance,
Jia

There are a lot single and multiple bill switches. I would suggest doing a search and following the threads. Mike Klosowski's bill switch is on "The Magic of Michael Ammar" and other places. I personally like the "Juan Hundred Bill Switch".

The book "Switch" is the defacto reference on bill switches. It isn't cheap, but is worth it.

Thanks every one. I'll check those out.

@ Johnathon: I admit being too lazy to do a simple search. Will do that next time.

I found the Juan Hundred Bill Switch on ellusionist website. After the description, there is a note saying: "You must be familiar with “Hundy 500” or a similar multiple bill change to incorporate this incredible addition."

Does this mean that I have to learn the Hundy 500 before purchasing?

No, you can still learn the Jaun Hundred dollar bill switch. But you must be familiar with Hundy 500 to understand the bonus effect on the dvd. The bonus effect is a variation on the actual change in Hundy

If you learn the Juan Hundred switch, you might want to consider looking into Juan Pablo's Barehanded Bill Production DVD. I like producing a bill from "thin air" and then changing it to a hundred. It allows for some good performance and patter.

I think Richard Sanders has some interesting work on this. Very clean! Over the years he developed many switches, some of which don't use a TT at all and are very visual.

Hey mate,

using brightly colored different sized plastic currency does provide a unique set of challanges. I think that its almost impossible to do a Juan Hundred Bill Switch with our money (although I'm sure someone can) I've tried a lot of billswitches and for our currency I prefer money morph with a sleight variation of the first fold being top to bottom as well. pm me if you have any questions

Roger Klause's Book "In Concert" had some great info. on "half moves" that really smoothed the switch out.
Worth looking into before you get any bad habits.
This won't help you color problem. Maybe a mismade bill in your currency?

Been in Britain all our bank notes are different sizes so I start off with a blank piece of paper and change it into a £20.
This lead to a funny situation paying for gas one day I asked the cashir for some paper from the receipt roll and changed it in to a £20

Magick Balay's "4 Quarters" is a good one to start learning with.

In the effect I do I have to vanish a bill which I have torn in half. What is the best way to vanish these two halfs of a bill?

Let's see, you could use a TT, a pull, a topit, a Devil's Hank, a card box (a gimmicked wood box, not the case the cards come in), a small paper cone, an almost endless number of larger props and gimmicks, or good ol' sleight of hand and misdirection. Which of those methods would be "best" is entirely too subjective and is dependent upon your skill level, your preferences and all of the other aspects of the effect.

All that said, if it was me I'd probably use a TT. Indeed, that's the method I use to vanish an intact bill in my BIL/Benson bowl routine.

I always thought Roger Klause "Half Moves" concept applied to the bill change really elevated the bill switch to an entirely new high. This effect looked like pure magic in Mr Klause's Hands.

The contributions from Roger Klause were absolutely amazing, and they really did elevate this sleight/technique to a new level all its own. Another version of the bill switch utilizing a TT, which I still use and find very clean as it leaves the bills in sight the entire way through, is called Money Morph.
