Its been years many many years since I messed with this effect.

wondering what good videos to get to watch learn and refresh my mind.

I am referring to the ring that is 3 inches not using a finger ring. yes I know you can do many routines similar with both but I am specifically looking for the larger ring and string or shoe lace effect.

I also own the gimmick shoelace version as well but really want to stick with the original work.

thanks in advance for the info

I have been doing Jay Scott Berry's Symphony on a Ring and Ribbon since the early 90s and it never fails to get a great reaction...

Wow... that's a great routine!

Where can we purchase that, Christopher? Checked his site but didn't find it.

Hey Sam,

Chris gave a great recommendation above, but I'd also like to point you to Eric DeCamps' version as well:

Aldo Colombini has a couple of DVDs that are worth checking out.

If you wanted, you could do Berry's routine WITH the "swing a ring" gimmick as well and you could combine the aspects of both for a great routine...

Well Erics routine is more of what I wanted. need to see if I can find that on dvd some where.

as for Jays routine very nice but very boring to me. let me rephrase that it was too slow for me.

just as some one said that Christopher would add his touch to the routine I would venture he sped it up a bit and added some energy which is what I would do as well.

thanks for the post and the links.

now to find the dvd to get and watch.

Correct! Jays style for me is very dull (sorry Jay). I don't enjoy the New Age Music, the slow overly drawn out dramatics of his routine. I have added a few extra phases that are my own along with a lot of sight gags and funny stuff to make it my own.

I enjoy performing a few different Ring & String routines, including the Bob Miller Relentless Ring & String, Ringing Around/Ringing Around Too by Aldo Colombini, the Eric DeCamps routine and the Jahn Gallo Ring & Rope routine. While I do not see anything wrong with using gimmicked items for these types of routines, I prefer not to. I would recommend any of the ones I mentioned above.

I love watching the Jay Scott Berry routine but I just never got into it. The next version I am looking into getting, and I cannot remember the name of it at the moment, but it uses a nice ring about 3 or 4 inches in size and a ball chain (think of a pull chain on a ceiling fan).

It is also available on DVD from various dealers that still carry the Stars of Magic series.

You can't go wrong with those choices above. My personal favorite routine is ring leader by Greg Wilson. On Wizard Product Review, Craig and David reviewed a new trick called Collateral by Diamond Jim Tyler where your wedding ring is sealed in an envelope and put into the spectators pocket. You then do the ring and string routine using their borrowed ring. Finally it vanishes and is found in their pocket inside the sealed envelope. Your ring, is safely back on your finger. It seems like a killer ending to a regular ring and string effect. I don't have it, but I think I'll be investing in it soon.

John Guastaferro's Full Circle is a wonderful routine, but hard to find as it is out of print. Eric DeCamps routine can be found on the his Stars of Magic DVD. Which, incidentally, is an incredible DVD. All the material on it is top notch. Here's a link Sam..

From what I have seen on YT I like your style of magic Chris, but I also like JSB's as well. You gotta remember his venue and audience are generally going to be different then say a restaurant setting, which allows for a more theatrical presentation. (If that makes sense)

P.S Eric DeCamps version is a class act as well.

Jay's routine is brilliant and anyone else's routine needs personalising. What works for Jay won't work for you.
If anyone is interested in Jay's routine, I am talking with him at the moment about purchasing some gear and he still sells the DVD and props for the routine. He just is so busy with his music and magic that he is not really dealing anymore.

The 2 versions I use are ring rope and wand, which I believe is by Bev Bergeron, and Mike Close's version of Ring Flight which uses a string and goes to the ring case. For this, I use Joe Porper's Just a Key/Case. This last one may not fall into the category here, but I thought I'd mention that I've done this with THREE different Super Bowl Rings. You wanna really get some gasps? Vanish one of those babies and go onto another trick before reveling where it is.
