Nice routine. Good idea having spec. pull ring off ribbon. That music he uses is the same that Mickey Silver used on his demo tape. Anyone know what the name of that music is or where it's from?

Hi all
I saw Jay Scott Berry at a convention in the UK. I saw his ring on ribbon and I was the one he chose to pull the ring off the ribbon! Its a very magical routine and I really like it.

The end of the routine is real magic.
I love it.

It's original from Jay Scott Berry ?

It's a very pretty routine, and the video instructions are great. Very carefully shot (no dialogue, incidentally), but very easy to follow. The ring off ribbon in the spectator's hands is very powerful. I've been tempted to adapt that to the Charming Chinese Challenge routine....

I must say that this is one of the strongest things I do. I'v done it for nearly 8 years and it always gets a great response.

I've performed mr. Jay Scott Berry's wonderfull routine for more than a year now. Inclose up environments I exchange the last part with a part where the ring penetrates the ribbon and gets stuck on a magic wand (both the ends of the ribbon and the wand is held by two spectators). The whole routine leaves people amazed, and then ending even more.

I'm pretty certain that both "the master false thread move" (Jay's insertion move) where you are actually able to display the ring hanging on the ribbon before the penetration is original with Jay Scott Berry. Also I believe the final ending to the stage routine is original with him.

This is one of the very best effects I have in my arsenal. It's different, its highly visual, it's in the spectators hands in my close up version - it's simply marvellous.

Moreover, I find it very difficult to do the hanging ring display with a small fingerring and it takes a lot of confidence and rehearsal to do the insertion moves close up only 10 centimeters away from the spectators eyes - so this is a quite demanding and sleigh heavy routine to pull off in a close up setting. Having said that, you will have a crown jewel with this effect - and I can only say that If you ever get a chance to see Jay Scott Berry perform this effect live - then go and see it - he makes it into a piece of art - almost a classical ballet performed with grace. In his hand it's magic when its most elegant.

I've studied plenty of routines and sleighs by Gregory Wilson, Dan Turcotte etc. and there is plenty of twists and variations here to never get tired of the routine. But if you only buy one - go with Jay Scott Berry's DVD, that will give you the best effect and presentation ideas.

Ups I forgot to mention an important part. When in close up setting I start with my own ring and ribbon and after two penetration I offer to do it with a spectators ring. Then I do the final two penetrations with the spectators ring, having the spectator himself holding one end of the ribbon and the wand, and another spectator holding the other ends. As always the "borrowed" item plays big in the audience perception, and the fact that the "borrower" are holding on the ribbon and wand makes it even more fantastic from him/hers point of view.

Good advice: Always borrow a clean wedding band with out diamonds or other things sticking out. You don't want to run the risk of causing a stone or anything to fall out. A straight wedding band is preferrable. And ask a male person since their rings are bigger than the ladies rings.

Anyone know what size/type of ribbon Jay Scott Berry uses in his Symphony DVD. Based upon a Troy Hoosier comment I am staying away from 'plastic' ribbons and going silk but am starting to look kinda goofy hanging at the fabric store with a gold ring and multiple ribbons LOL. Any help here?

Regards,

Barrett James

This also has been a regular part of my show for many years. Since a lecture in around 1998.
I changed one thing, the ribbon. oops, and the music. But it always plays well.

Jay taught this to me in a his lecture around 1991 and I've been doing it ever since. I use a red velvet ribbon...or as I refer to it, THE MANLY RED VELVET RIBBON OF AWESOMENESS! Joann Fabrics sells them. Very easy to worth with....
