I might buy a cup and ball set soon
but, I figured I could just buy 3 cups from the store to begin with, rather than those crappy little colored plastic cups, which is why im wondering, the cups arent gimmicked, are they?
Im also planning on getting gazzos dvd and book, and the 2 courses dvds on cups and balls.
(im so excited about magic and stuff!)
I also recommend
URL Cups & Balls Michael Ammar- #1, DVD
URL Cups & Balls Michael Ammar- #2, DVD
They are an awesome Value. Volume 2 includes a section on Wand Flourishes and vanishes you want to put into use right away. Also has information on how to select the best final load for you. It also has a modular style where you select from various opening, middle, and ending routines to make a full routine.
Put together both volumes will give you routines ranging from beginner, to intermediate, to expert. It includes a segment on Misdirection, acting, etc... teaches Ammar's Cups and Balls, and Dai Vernon's Cups and balls routines... and has Dai Vernon performing his routine on mark Wilson's show... also has a lot of material on how the cups and balls was represented in art as an idea about how it was performed back then.
All in all, I would consider saving up, and buying both together, along with
URL The Magician's Wand (Wood With Brass Tips)
Good luck with the routine, Let us know how you make out
