WOW...incredible and very generous offer Tommy is making. As Richard stated...CLASS ACT!!!

Tommy does indeed do miracles with music. His music is rich and full sounding. It truly will make any performance sound better. That goes for his stock music and his custom made to order pieces.

I had long talk with Jody Baron the other day about Tommy and his talents. Jody pointed out several facts that only a guy doing a show for over 10 years would know and realize.

Tommy knows magic, not just music. He knows what is needed to make the music work with the magic. He puts little minor cues in the music so you know a cue is coming up. so you know at this point you have to open the door, etc. He has little things built in to add 15 or 30 seconds onto a track if something runs long.

I have heard tracks that are unbelievable.... one with guitars, one with brass, one with drums, one with sax, etc. and any combination of them. It is more than just editing the music by chopping it. He can redo it so it fits the time needed by an extra chord or shortening a note. Yet is sounds almost identical.

In this day when ASCAP fees are not cheap and a necessity, you need to have royalty free music to be able to work in many venues. Otherwise, they are going to pay thousands in licensing during a year. You might have the cost one time with Tommy but then you are done. It is your music to use.

Sure many of us are not working like Jody. But there are some other advantages to using some of Tommy's music. 1) Your act does not sound like everybody else's act. 2) He can give you the sound you want to fit your act. There are many cd's of royalty free music but I have found most of them do not fit me. Or maybe there might be one song that can work. If you look over his library, you are going to find all kind of styles of music, with and without vocals. You can sample them and buy them a track at a time like Itunes.

Maybe it is not time to redo your whole act's music, but you might want to listen and do one or two. But fair warning, one track will sound so good that it will make the others sound worse than they might really be.

Getting back to the topic of the thread, still no word on my 2/10/12 purchase from Robert Haas and Magic Enhancer. Sure doesn't look good for me! Amazing to me that someone would advertise all this on their website, take my money, ignore all my attempts at communication and not deliver.

Yes, it does not make sense. I would definitely proceed with claim and get my money back before it is too late. It seems he has a history of not deliverying. I am glad that I did not work with them when he brought out his version of the banana trick,

I contacted Discover to submit a "dispute" and was told that "by law" I have to give the merchandiser 30 days to deliver. So I will wait and then submit it on March 11.

I think I'm glad I purchased items from him long ago. Got everything without a problem and even got extras in the packages.

Yeah, me too. I was hoping to get a customized CD from them, but I guess that's not going to happen now.

Go through PayPal, you can do it now and get your money back hopefully. File a claim and wait one day to take it to the next step for a refund.

Good Luck!

Well, I sure wish I had seen these posts prior to placing an order on 2/10/12 and having it billed to my Discover. Three voice mails and three emails later, and I still haven't heard anything about my order other than a receipt from PayPal that states the charge will appear as payment to PAYPAL *MAGICENHANC.


If you contact PayPal within 45 days I think you will be able to get your money back.

There is no PayPal Transaction ID # on this, so no way to submit a dispute to PayPal as far as I can tell. It appears the only way to deal with this is through Discover. Still no response from Magic Enhancer. It sure seems like this should be considered some kind of illegal business practice in that ME accepted my payment with no apparent plan to provide the product.

I received a chargeback after contacting both PayPal and Discover. I never heard a word from Magic Enhancer! "Caveat emptor."

I guess I am one of the latest of Magic Enhancer's victims. I ordered ME Vol 2 on Feb 13th, and haqve not got email response or voicemail response. Sadly, it wasn't until AFTER I ordered it that I found out about this Café Topic to find I was not alone!

If anyone has remedy, please let me know. Meanwhile I will contact OPUS1 and see if he will help me at least get something I paid for.

Why would Magic Enhancer continue to advertise and take people's money if they are not going to do the work? They need to be in JAIL!

It amazes me that this continues to happen with this company and with this gentleman who runs this company. If you takes peoples money under the promise to deliver a product and you don't deliver the product that is theft. Theft under false pretenses is illegal in every state. This guy doesn't appear to be very heard to find. Im sure there are some people on Law Enforcement who would love to talk to him. If no criminal proceedings could be had surely the people who have lost money should get together and take civil action. I had dealing with this company a long time ago ordered a product never heard anything back, despite many e-mails. To my good luck my credit card was never processed.
