Just visited Angelo's web site and I have always loved his pill boxes. Only wish I could see someone perform with those pill boxes. I really love his cocobolo cups, they are awesome.

Thanks for the compliments!

Dale Houck that's a really nice photo of your Dahms/Angelo Takagi cup. Would you be kind enough to send a copy to me at It's one of the cups that have escaped from my shop without a "mug" shot (pun intended)

My best

In light of your Porper Cocobola cups, I thought they looked great and should be a pleasure to own and use. But as with all cups that get dark with age, I can't help but think of our enjoymnet of darker cups as being a bit misguided. It's rare to see video or performances where the cups are lit very well and I keep thinking that dark props are harder to see and recognize that bright ones. I know we start by telling them they are cups and showing them fairly but I'm sure the darkness that we enjoy cannot make it across the footlights to the specs. I know a real pro who uses very dark dirty copper cups cuz he likes the look, but to a new audience they can't tell them from wads of dark paper, never mind right side up or down, no matter how he presents them. without crystal clear simple moves the routine can get to be just a muddle waiting for the climax. My two cents.

In addition, for wooden cups I've got to go with the Mikame cups, double bead (chopped) or single bead.

E… Maybe it goes back to preparing for the performance… lighter color balls that contrast with the Cups the same could be said about the working surface.
