What's this thing called? I've seen it, but forgot the name??? It's used to make hand appear to have coins audibly...

Thank You,
Steve

P.S. Anybody have one that they'd consider trading???

Not sure which one you are referring to, but John Kennedy used to sell an item that will do this called "coin clink." It was particularly nice because you could put it in non-clink mode or clink mode very easily, and used real coins so the sound was correct.

Hi Steve, I think David Neighbors has a "sound gimmick" and a book on it. Check with him. Smile

Would I be right in saying that they are called "Downs sound gimmicks"? I think it was David Roth that added the "on/off" switch. Jay Sankey's "Sound for thought" effect uses these but I had never seen them before. David Roth used some for "The tuning Fork" too.

Yes, Coin Clink is the item. Very nice, but now discontinued. I guess maybe sales weren't as expected. I liked this, though.

P.S. I don't think they were real coins, but rather washers.

You might want to try to contact Joe Givan. He's been demoing & selling one at his lectures.

Joe Givan sells the Dave Neighbors one which is called U.R.G.E (ultimate rattle gimmick in existance). You put your own coins in it, and it can be switched off.

Of course, like a click pass, if you're working somewhere noisy no-one can hear it anyway. Smile

Hi,
The on/off switch that Roth had was a ball under the gimmick and it was very hard to turn off after you turned it on! But yes, he was the first! It was first used in his tuning fork routine!

My lock is a ball that goes on top of the gimmick and over the sides. So it is easy to turn it off and on by just pushing up the sleeves.

I also have a new book of 10 stand-up, no-table coin routines with it, called "Sound Routines." For more info, e-mail me, thanks.

One year I was at 4F [Fechter's Finger Flinging Frolic]in a very noisy bar, so I just shook my hand without turning the gimmick on, and everyone was killed when the coins vanished, because they thought they would have heard the coins if it was not so noisy Smile. ( That is the meeting on the 2nd floor and the bar was on the 1st.)So I guess that's what to do it a noisy bar!

Best, David Neighbors

I would also add that the gimmick that Dave is putting out is much better than Joe Givans. Joes' is made of aluminum, which does not give off a sound that resembles coins. Dave's is made out of brass.

Hi Winks,
I have a website at http://www.coinjurer.com but I don't have the rattle gimmick up on it yet. My friend Stu who put up the site and runs it is out of town right now! And has not got around to putting it up yet!

But you can E-Mail me at coinjurer@cs.com if you would like one. They go for gimmick -$ 35.00, and the book of 10 stand-up no-table routines goes for $ 20.00, or both for $50.00 Ok thanks!

Best, David Neighbors
