I pretty much perform the effect as written and throw in some of my own things/ideas. Guardion are you looking to busk?
See I'm looking to busk and I'm not going to get some cheap starter set to practice with, and use when am starting out. Then they will just dent and what not. Then I will be out $90 and have to save up for the good cups. What I did was got some plastic ones similar to the size I'm getting and practiced with those befor I start to invest in a good set of cups. Have you thought about getting the Gazzo dvd? I'd reccomend it. Anyway good luck.


i got some small plaztic ones and goign to get gazzos dvd and load them with smaller stuff so i get used to the routine, im not going out to busk yet

AFTER I get the cups and balls down maybe

There is a world of difference between cheap plastic cups and the real thing. What you will do is learn all the bad habits from the cheap cups and then it will be harder to perform with a set of real cups. The size, weight, balance is totally different.

Keep a close eye on eBay. Gary Animal just reported that he has a handful of Gazzos, plus a few Babes and Love cups and said he'll be posting them there some time soon. Expect to pay $200-$300 for the Babes and Loves and a bit more for the Gazzos.

From what I hear, this is the last of the remaining stock for a long while.

FYI, the Babes are sized for a baseball load, and the Loves fit tennis balls. I have both sets and they're both great! I use the same size working balls in either cup. I prefer the Loves, but when I go out on the street again, I'll take the Babes as they're a bit larger and more visible.

when a drunk stumbles up. He was standing up watching, and started talking to me, so I was talking to him for a bit(I could smell the liquor off his breath). Finally Tony finishes the routine, the drunk reaches in his back pocket and says, "I got a switch blade here in my back pocket, I'd like you see you bend that!", and begins to pull it out. We convince him to keep it in his pocket, and say that we're leaving now. He says that he has some friends that he's going to get now, and they'd love to see us perform, and have lots of money.



That happened in Newfoundland are you joking i live in St.John's and never heard of that

Guardion those are some nice cups but if you buy the Gazzo dvd and want to do his routine then you will have to have larger cups. For the orange size load. OYu could also do his routine and produce tennis balls instead of oranges. Its up to you.

Thanx
