Hey! This is the newest of my NEW Categories! It's what I do when I have not added some NEW stuff for awhile and want to make it special!!! So I just add a NEW Category..... This stuff...ROCKS!!!

  • Basic Skill with Cards by Jerry Mentzer -- Excellent small text of basic card handling technique.


  • Bendix Bombshell Wallet by Dave Bendix Bendix Bombshell Wallet by Dave Bendix -- Hello!For years one of my favorite 'Working' wallets was the Bendix Bombshell Wallet designed by Dave Bendix.  I used it for years in my professional Close-up Work.  Simply put, it ROCKS!There has not been a really good quality Bendix Bombshell wallet available in the US for quite some time.  Well, there is now.  I don't know how long they will be available but I can get some right now!!!  Here's more info from the manufacturer:"If the wallet were not enough Martin gives you a fantastic book incorporating lots of great routines and idea by some of the greatest names in magic. Needless to say it 's produced to the very high standard that we have come to expect from Martin." -- Barrie Segal This Bendix Bombshell Wallet was invented by Dave Bendix and has long been unavailable. The good news is that it is now available direct from Martin Breese or from your favourite dealer world-wide. Unique and Ingenious: The wallet is unique and ingenious and enables you to perform the signed card to deck without sleight of hand or palming and no stealing of a card from the deck is required at all. The wallet is made to the highest standards for me by Tony Curtis in Thailand and is much better than the original version first produced in the 1980s. The wallet comes complete with a large A4 book containing routines from talented magicians and magical creators such as the late Ed Marlo, Roberto Giobbi, David Solomon, Dave Bendix, Phil Goldstein, Bob Driebeek, Roy Roth, Peter Isaacs and Borodin. There are nearly 12,000 words of explanation and routines plus illustrations. Many performers rate the Bendix Bombshell as the best magical wallet ever! That's CORRECT!  Not only a First Class wallet, but a First Class book ON the wallet!  If you have been wanting a Bendix Bombshell here is your chance.  This is a great deal.  -Brad Burt



    Deep 3 by Bro Gilbert (DVD and Deck) Deep 3 by Bro Gilbert (DVD and Deck) -- Maybe the best way to start is to have you just watch the demonstration video.  Ingnore the goofy opening and watch for the final effect.  If you are a close-up table or walk around performer this will be a hit!     CLICK HERE FOR DEMOI honestly didn't think I could do better than what the supplier had already written, except to put on my own 'seal of approval'.  This is a clever practical little pocket miracle the effect of which will stay with folks for a long time.  It does what all the best close-up magic does:  It personalizes the routine and effect to the audience.  Highly recommended. -  Brad BurtHere's the EFFECT:You show off two exotic antique Jokers that you carry in your bicycle deck for good luck.You then ask a special someone to take a walk down memory lane as they remember their very first kiss... and the name of the lucky person behind those lips. It could be any name... but let's say the name happens to be Bro Gilbert.Now, with empty hands, you cleanly spread through the facedown bicycle deck, revealing the two lucky antique jokers from a moment ago. She removes the two jokers and discovers a bold black letter drawn on each of their backs... a B and a G. The initials of the first person she ever kissed!And yes, just like deep astonishment, it works with any name.It starts with a memory... and ends with a miracle.Bro Gilbert has merged two classics of magic into one of the most ingenious decks of our time. Deep 3 is nearly self-working and exceptionally clean in handling. You can show the backs and faces of normal bicycle cards and your spectator removes the two lucky jokers herself. With Deep 3 in your pocket, you'll be constantly set (and re-set) for an intimate miracle, or a showstopper for a formal performance. Manufactured with a red bicycle deck, Deep 3 includes custom vintage "lucky lady jokers" with high-contrast backs so your hand-written letters show up clearly close-up or in . . .



    Essential Magic Conference DVD Set (8 DVDs) Essential Magic Conference DVD Set (8 DVDs) -- From Brad:  Below is the ad copy for the Essential Magic Conference 2010.  I include it because it gives the names of those presenting, lecturing and performing.That said here's my personal review:  Wow!  No really.  This is an amazing prduct and worth every penny.  Imagine an entire 3 day convention all on dvd.  That  is 'essentially' what you get.  Now, it's different from an on ground convention in this:  The presentations were subject to a 20 minute time limit.  My ONLY, hmmmm, what?  Problem...?....with some of the presentatons is that I wish they had been longer!!!  I wanted more!!!   In almost every case the 'tricks and techniques' that I would like to learn, that were explained I will be able to learn.  But....BUT.....much of the magic taught was fairly advanced (not all!), but the stuff I liked.  You would HAVE to have a back ground in those areas or you would be lost.  But, to be honest, learning "tricks" was only a part of what was offered.  Frankly, the numerous lectures on the philosophy, history, etc. of magic was what really stood out to me personally and I LOVED the actual magic that was deomonstrated and in some cases taught.IF.......IF........you are ONLY looking for tricks or trick/explanation dvds......DO NOT GET THIS PRODUCT.  I mean that.  Not trying to trick you.  Not trying to use reverse psychology.   Read the reviews.  The one in Magic Magazine was probably the single most positive review of a product I have ever read there and I mainly read the product reviews! There was so much great material it's difficult to get a handle on just what to point to.  I loved the Mike Caveney lecture on the Robert Harbin Zig Zag controversy.  I LOVED the coin magic of Ponta the Smith.............WOOOOOOW!!!!!  And, his teaching, although his English is weak, was really quite good.  The Gaeton Bloom lecture on creativity . . .



    Gypsy Monte Set by Mark Elsdon Gypsy Monte Set by Mark Elsdon -- This is a very direct Three Card Monte routine where the spectators simply cannot keep track of the ace.  This is very, very clean and easy to do.  What I really, REALLY like about this version is the 'old' looking cards.  They have a 200 year old antique look to them which opens up a ton of patter variants.  Cards are well make and a set should last some time with care. You are supplied with the 3 vintage looking cards and photo-illustrated instruction booklet.  Recommended.  -Brad Oh....before I forget...I found a really nice demo of the routine on YouTube:   http://youtu.be/X-a_tU9FTzk



    Heirloom Heirloom -- Want to SEE a DEMONSTRATION OF HEIRLOOM???  Just Click HERE!!! Brad's Update: Over time I have come to believe that Heirloom is one of the finest tricks ever released. It takes the trick Kolassal Killer and REVS IT UP to OVERDRIVE! Do not over look the Heirloom Wallet that is specially designed and custom made just for this wonderful piece of truly stunning magic. -Brad Burt Imagine an effect that packs in to your wallet, taking up very little room. An effect that packs such a punch when you perform it that your spectators get goosebumps just thinking about it. Imagine an effect that people talk about for years to come. 'Heirloom' is all of this. It is a 'Mental/Magic' kind of effect, suitable for casual performance, table-hopping, strolling magic and more. It comes with a very strong presentation that will captivate your audience and lead to a shattering climax. It could possibly be the greatest performance piece you ever own! The 'Heirloom' is a old sepia photograph. Of your Great Uncle Charlie - a superstitious old gambler. The photograph clearly shows a prediction made by the spectator to be 100% correct. And... it can always be examined. 'Heirloom' takes the whole concept right to the very edge; the new ideas introduced will blow your audience away. The presentation, which you are given in full, delivers an emotionally charged moment of astonishment to your spectators and shows no mercy! This is the first and only time Kenton Knepper has authorized his principle for use in an effect. You will fool magicians who already know this principle with 'Heirloom'! And what's more, just look at the quality of the work involved. It is beautiful. Heirloom includes high quality props and a full description of the 'Kolossal Killer' principle and a completely scripted presentation for the effect that will absolutely blow your audience away.



    Heirloom Wallet Heirloom Wallet -- I was skeptical about this wallet until I finally bought one and saw what a truly fine job they did with it. This is a wallet you can carry full time, have set up to do Heirloom and thus give yourself an effect you can do ANYTIME and ANYWHERE that is virtually guaranteed to FRY your audience! Heirloom is THAT good. Well, if you are looking for a wallet to use WITH your Heirloom set up....you may seriously want to consider this one. The wallet is made of top quality leather. Looks simple and elegant and is 'specially' made to do just what you would want it to do when it comes to Heirloom. The wallet is so constructed that you can actually show it to have NO OTHER CARDS when you remove that 'special' one! Highly recommended.


  • Insurance Policy -- This is what I call a quick add...something I should have done like 10 years ago.  Insurance Policy is simply one of the great card routines of all time.  When I was doing shows I did it every show I worked.The routine concept is simple:  A spectator selects a card.  It is lost in the deck and YOU FAIL TO FIND IT...several times you fail.  Hmmmmm....rats!  Well, you say, that's ok, because I am covered to the tune of ten thousand dollars if this trick fails to work.....funny how often it fails!!!  You remove a folded offfical looking paper policy.  You mug it up and build suspense and then open the policy which has a HUGE image of their card on it!Plays one on one or to an audience of literally thousands!  Killer and highly recommened.


  • Misled by Timothy Wenk Misled by Timothy Wenk -- What more could you ask for? Misled was created by FISM award-winning inventor Timothy Wenk and performed exactly as described in this booklet by David Copperfield on international television! Effect A bill of ANY denomination and if you like and someone has one, a pencil are borrowed from a member of the audience. I just use the pencil that comes with the package, but it's cool to borrow one if you can! The borrowed bill may be marked for later identification if desired. You proceed to use the pencil to pierce a hole in the center of the bill-there`s no doubt that the pencil is truly through the bill. Watch the audience gasp (especially the bill`s owner) at what happens next...you rip the pencil through the bill-the audience clearly sees the pencil rip through and they can hear the sound of paper ripping! Yet, somehow the bill is left completely unharmed!You offer to repeat the effect, this time the pencil mysteriously melts through the bill in slow motion-it looks unbelievable! Both the pencil and the bill may then be handed out for complete examination. Comes with very special gimmick, pencil and detailed instruction booklet. From BRAD: This is one of my all time favorite tricks. It simply rocks. When it originally came out it consisted of just the part where the pencil seems to 'melt' through the bill. Personally, that's all I ever do myself as I have found it so powerful that the additional penetration is not necessary and maybe a little overkill. But, that's just me. In any case, this is a truly worthwhile piece of visual magic. Highly recommended!



    Powerball 60 Powerball 60 -- Here's a link to a very nice demo by the manufacturer of Powerball 60.  I can assure you that the reactions you see by the spectators on this clip are very much the same reaction that I have gotten!  Give a look.....http://www.murphysmagicsupplies.com/video/clips/DVDPOWERBALL-VIDEO1.wmvHello!  Brad Burt here and have I got a KILLER new item whether you are a Mentalist or Magician.  It's called Powerball 60 by Richard Sanders and Bill Abbott.  I HAVE one and I'm performing it and, well, it's a BLAST!  In a second I'll let you read the ad copy which is perfectly right on the money.  But, I wanted to preface what you are about to read wth my 'read' on this wonderful new item.  Get it!  You will have a blast.  The tickets look EXACTLY like real Lotto Tickets.  The method is as old as the hills, but here you are getting it in a version that really SELLS!  One of the strongest points in the presentation is that the tickets can be placed FACE DOWN during the working!!!  O.k., here is the down and dirty:The EASIEST, most PRACTICAL MINDREADING effect EVER! EFFECT:Have a spectator think of any number between 1 and 60 and to imagine that number as their secret winning lottery number. For fun, hand them your used scratch tickets and ask them to see how many winners they would have had.By this simple action alone...YOU NOW KNOW THE EXACT NUMBER THEY ARE THINKING OF! SIMPLE TO DO! 100% ACCURATE EVERYTIME. INSTANTLY REPEATABLE as many times as you want with DIFFERENT NUMBERS every time! No sleight of hand. The tickets do all the work for you! Completely EXAMINABLE. Nothing to replace. Use this over and over. Finally a magic prop THAT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE A MAGIC PROP!POWERBALL 60 is the perfect covert tool to throw into your wallet.No need for peeks, impressions or special wallets.With Powerball 60, the tickets do all the work for you.With the simple and natural action of asking the spectator . . .


  • Six Card Repeat -- For over 30 years Six Card Repeat was one of two openers for my act. It ROCKS! It's as simple as that. In Six Card Repeat you have a wonderful trick that will instantly give you 'cred' with your audience. It LOOKS magical and is entertaining as well. For 20 years I taught it in the various magic schools that I both developed and ran as head instructor. The method I use is a classic that allows you to openly handle the cards and put all your attention into the presentation. The patter is a variant of that found in Tarbell Vol. 1 and is easily transformed by YOU into something will fit your act and personality. Effect? You walk out and begin telling the audience a story about how 'you' became interested in magic. It happened as you walked along a street downtown. You see a magician working the corner and he is doing a trick in which he openly and visibly counts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 cards. He tosses away 3 of the cards and then instantly counts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 cards again! Hmmmmm....you run to the nearset magic shop and ask the fellow behind the counter, "Do you have the trick where you count 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 cards, toss away 3 and still have 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 left?" The guy thinks for a moment and then tells you..... Well, you get the idea. The cards are counted and cards tossed aside 4 times with a perfectly logical and entertaining reason why. Everyone is always asking for a good opener....I GUARANTEE that this one fits the bill! I hope to have a demo of the routine up on the site soon. All very best, Brad

  • Spider Pen Batteries - 6 Pack -- These are the basic batteries for the Spider Pen.


  • Spider Thread Refills by Yigal for Tarantula Spider Thread Refills by Yigal for Tarantula -- This package contains two Spider Thread spoolers, each with over 25 feet of ultimate super-fine invisible thread, designed specially for the Spider Pen, Tarantula, and other motorized reels in the Yigal Mesika series. Intended for the use of levitating and animating objects!



    Tarantula by Yigal Mesika Tarantula by Yigal Mesika --   From Brad: Hello! If you ever thought that the I.T.R.(Invisible Thread Reel) was cool....well, the Tarantula is to the I.T.R. what an Atomic Submarine is to a canoe! Gang, this thing simply rocks. I have been a big fan of Yigal's for many years now, but he's outdone himself.  This is a FABULOUS piece of magic apparatus at what I think is an amazingly low price. When you see the incredible care and genius that went into it's construction you will know exactly what I mean. - Brad ********************************************************Want to see a DEMO?  Click Here....Next, here is the ad copy from the maker himself. It has the full scoop: Check this out: You’re in a normal setting – maybe a coffee shop, a classroom, even a party. You borrow a friend’s ring and hold it very fairly – nothing to hide. Suddenly, you give it a gentle horizontal spin and slowly move your hands away – the ring is now floating. Imagine that it continues to spin – without you touching it! The ring hovers up and down above your hand, from one hand to another, and slowly lands on your own finger! Now get this: You instantly repeat it, and end up with the ring floating onto the spectator’s own finger! Sounds impossible? Believe it or not, it’s easy to master! This levitation has it all. It’s fun, mysterious, edgy, and leaves a strong emotional impact. The Tarantula is a unique gimmick that has shattered the conventional wisdom of what reels look like and accomplish. This stealth utility allows you to easily master levitation and animation for any situation. You can fearlessly perform completely surrounded with the Tarantula, and the preparation only takes a second. Literally, you have the power at your fingertips, and can show your hands empty at any time. (Brad's Note:  Yes, you can....even though the "T" is actually concealed in one of your hands!)  The Tarantula allows you to perform countless effects that have never been seen or done before. The Tarantula . . .



    The Mullica Wallet The Mullica Wallet -- Hello!  I have been using my Mullica Wallet for over 30 years and still love it.  It is probably the best walk around do it anytime Card in Wallet ever devised.  The wallet I sell is the same one (authorized version!) that I bought all those years ago.  Below is some ad copy the pretty much says it all.....Remember, if you have questions please let me know at:  bradburtmagic@yahoo.com"This may well be the most perfect card to wallet principle ever! While it is easy to do, it is baffling and entertaining! At any time and with a borrowed deck, the performer has a card freely selected then initialed or marked for identification. The card is returned to the pack and shuffled. Then with an empty hand, the performer removes the wallet from his pocket. A face down card is seen in the wallet. A message on the face of the card instructs the performer to look in the other wallet. A smaller wallet is then removed from the "wallet proper". Inside this inner wallet is the chosen card!! No palming is necessary. No Forcing. And best of all, when the performer returns the wallet to his pocket, it is ready to do again!"



    The Pro Viper III by Terry Lunceford The Pro Viper III by Terry Lunceford -- PLEASE NOTE:  Because of the weight and size the Pro Viper is always shipped at the exact cost of shipping via Priority Mail.Man, Oh man, Oh man!  The Pro Viper is back and it's better than ever!  Each unit is still hand assembled and crafted by Terry.  The remote is a little slicker than last time....but, essentially this IS the Pro Viper 2...it's you can now get one!  Remember Terry has not made a Viper for a number of years despite the continued demand.I can hardly think of a Parlor/Stage trick that I like better than my friend Terry Lunceford's PRO VIPER Snake Basket routine. It is simply a killer, visual, commercial piece of magic that comes with a hilarious comedy routine to boot!  YOU are in control of exactly when the unit triggers!  It uses the latest in high tech remote systems to give you perfect and total control of the trick. Here is the basic routine (Remember the video supplied with your Viper has Terry doing his routine at the Magic Castle in Hollywood...and it IS great!): A spectator is asked to come up on stage. She is asked to select a card and SIGN the card. The card is mixed back into the deck and the deck is placed openly next to a small basket on a table center stage. You now engage in some comedy byplay which leads to a colorful custom made spring snake leaping from the basket with the SELECTED AND SIGNED CARD IN IT'S MOUTH!!! It REALLY is the signed card! Card can be removed and handed to your assistant. This is a very strong and entertaining routine that can be made to work with almost any audience type. Here is a Link to TWO "YouTube" videos of differing interpretations of the Viper... The first in particular is simply funnier than a hundred Gerbils on a kitchen table.......er, you get the idea:    Click HERE now! The routine is supplied on a DVD and is FILLED with humor and well thought out bits of business.  One of the things that I have looked for over the years are FULLY . . .



    True Astonishment Box Set (9 DVD's and Props) True Astonishment Box Set (9 DVD's and Props) -- NOTE:  This item no longer comes in the original wooden Puzzle Box.  Sorry!  Material the same, but they discontinued the special box.Shipping Note: The full package is 6 lbs of shipping weight.   The shipping will be ONLY what it costs to ship and no more!  I will package your unit to help insure that all gets to you safe and sound.  Thanks and all very best, Brad WELL!!! I have finally seen the first 4 DVD's myself and they are ....... (I've seen them all now!  Great stuff...)WONDERFUL! This is KILLER, First Class material and I can't wait to see the other 5! Just on the basis of the first 4 I can give this my Highest Recommendation. For the most part the material is fairly easy to do...BUT...the Effects are just simply magical! This is something you will love. -Brad As noted in my email I contacted a LONG TIME friend at the exclusive supplier for this item before it came out. I have learned over the years that I can trust him to give me the REAL scoop on any product I ask about. Here's what he said in reply to my question about True Astonishment: "It's AMAZING... everything from production to material is unbelievable. The box is a beautiful wooden box. It has a dial in the front - when you turn it it shows TA for True Astonishment and when you turn it upside down it says PH. That locks/unlocks the box. There is a prop for each of the 9 DVDs... cards, the TA pen, etc. There are over 40 cookies/Easter eggs on the DVDs with interviews (Blaine, PH, Ammar, etc.), tricks, weird things, etc. These are SO good Brad." - Mr. X True Astonishment Box Set (9 DVDs and props) by Paul Harris Imagine that thrill when you were a kid and got your first bike, your first dog, your first car. Imagine the thrill you got when you read the early Paul Harris books or the Art of Astonishment books. These are all moments you will never forget. You'll get that same feeling as you take a journey through Paul Harris' True Astonishments. True . . .
