Hey, I’m new to sponge ball magic and I have recently purchased a great routine that requires the use of the Sanada gimmick. Since this is the first time I have ever used the gimmick (or heard of it for that matter) I really have no idea on how it should fit and how many knuckles it should cover.
Thanks, any help is appreciated. Smile

Knuckles? Uh, it goes on the inside of your hand.

It’s a great gimmick but, like all fine magic, should be well practiced before performing.

There’s been lots of discussion on this forum on this item.

Have a look at this link:

Good luck.

Thanks for the link.

Pete, by knuckles I do mean on the inside of my hand. I just didn't know what to call it. Smile

First, you place your Sanada gimmick on a kitchen table top. It's a good idea to cover the table top with a layer or two of newspaper, and some brown paper, to keep from damaging the finish of the table.

Next, place your Sanada on top of the Sanada gimmick and see how much shorter your Sanada is than the gimmick. Take the length of the excess, divide by two, and mark lines on each end of the Sanada gimmick. Then trim a way the excess.

This will not work with Beethoven's Moonlight Sanada in Ab, though. Smile

Joe, those are called your "knuckle pits".

I went to the J. Scott Berry lecture and he does some wonderful things with his own versions of the gimmick. And, for that matter, his own version of the thumb tip.

Actually Bill, the Moonlight Sonata is in C# minor if my memory serves me.

The second movement is in a different key.
5 flats, I believe. That makes it… Ab.
Hey, I think Bill is right!

One important thing, Joe, trim your Sanada just a very little bit at a time. I ruined mine by trimming off too much.

My Sanada was trimmed too much when I was 8 days old. I haven't been the same since.

Have you ever seen or met Sanada-san? He is a very short of stature manipulator from Japan. He has one of the most pleasing stage personalities and is a tremendous act. He is much like Mahka Tendo… one of the best anywhere.

Be very careful when trimming it! But I prefer mine shorter than longer. Lets my joints clip the gimmick better!

I believe 5 flats would make it Db major (or Bb or F minor - can't remember which direction you go when you are 'converting' from major to minor).

Of course, this has nothing to do with dice stacking....or *does* it?

I was at J Scott Berry's lecture and he performed with the sanada and the flip tip.

Pete.

On the inside? NOW you tell me. No wonder the darn thing looked so unnatural and was so difficult to handle and conceal. (The sponge balls just kept popping out like lanced blisters or boils on my knuckles!!)

The relative minor of Db major is Bb Minor (you go down a third). And only the second movement of the Moonlight Sonata is in Db major. The whole piece is in C# Minor, except for Mvmt #2. That's why they call it: "Sonata No.14 "Mondschein" in C sharp minor"

If the Sanada was written in 5 flats, does this mean the writer moved 4 times?
