Orient Express by Mark Mason (DVD + Gimmicks)
Price: $99.95
In stock: usually ships within 24 hours!

+click to enlarge

One of Mark's favourite professional routines.

This is Mark's brilliant handling for copper/silver brass, using NO COPPER, NO SILVER, JUST BRASS.

Orient Express uses 3 different colored Chinese coins.

The transpositions and exchanges are TWICE as strong and visual as the colors change places and not the coins.

This is easy, direct magic that's perfect for any audience. With Mark's handling its so simple to remember which coin is where, as they follow the colors and not the coins.

Comes complete with:
1 x Full training DVD.
1 X Red Chinese Coin.
1 x Blue Chinese Coin.
1 x Black Chinese Coin.
1 x Expanded Chinese Black reversible Shell.
1 x Red/Blue copper/silver Chinese Coins.

Mark Mason's Stuff Rocks Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 23rd, 2012
Ok- this is my third set of really nice Mark Mason coin sets. I've got Come fly with me, Triception, and now Orient Express. All three routines absolutely rock. The coins are beautiful, the gimmicks are perfect, and the routines rock! All of his products and JB Magics products are first rate- you cant go wrong.
As far as Orient Express, it is Mark's take on the Cooper/Silver/Brass but uses colors instead. This makes it so much easier for the audience to follow. Easier for the magician to follow too. Great routine- actually looks better than the demo.

Effect: 10/10. Mark has taken a classic of magic and added a twist to it. No, actually an improvement to it. Great effect. Easy to follow yet baffling to laymen.

Gimmicks: 10/10- like all their products, this is first rate. The dvd is nicely made. The coins are first rate. The expanded sh*** also has a nice feature built into it- I dropped it during a performance and no one noticed what it was. The she*** landed upside down yet the gimmick was virtually invisible- I was like "wow". You also start clean and end clean.

Teaching: 10/10 Mark is a great teacher. The routine flows well and it is easy to learn. I watched the dvd twice and practiced for an hour or two and was doing magic (Smoothly). the coins do all the work. there are no real sleights involved.

Real World: 10/10 - this is a worker! Easy to carry. Auto reset. Packs small but has a big punch. I love this trick. To me, the price tag is justified by the quality of the effect and gimmicks involved. I highly recommend.

Easy to do and incredibly visual Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 29th, 2014
Mark's thinking on this is brilliant. Instead of trying to walk your spectator through "This is an American coin, this is a British coin, etc.", you just keep them on colors. The benefit of this is that you now have a coin trick that kids can easily follow as well. The changes are visual and incredibly fast, with very little sleight of hand work involved (he says none, but there are a couple of separations you must do that involve timing). I was practicing this without the video five minutes after watching it, and performed it twenty minutes after practice to a stunned crowd...it's that easy!

The only downside to it is the gimmick coin. It's a little larger than the others, and when you switch it in initially you'll have to keep everything moving so it's not noticed, but once the routine begins no one will catch it. The props are high quality, and this is powerful stuff that lets you concentrate on presentation rather than knuckle-busting...and it resets instantly as you finish the routine so you can run this again and again with no reset between tables!

The best Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 20th, 2012
This is one of the best chinese coin - copper/silver routine ever! I love that it is so easy to do, yet so powerful. The routine starts out with three coins handed out for examination and ends with three coins handed out for examination. I love the play with simple colors instead of the more complex "Mexican Centavo, British Penny, and Yap Island stone money" routine (Although, a the production of a two ton Yap stone coin would be quite impressive). The only thing that I think would have been a bit of an improvement is if the coins were red, yellow, and green, instead of blue, black, and red. Red, yellow, and green would have lent itself to a bit more humor (You were close, yellow, but not quite a green light..). Maybe I'll paint over my coins. I also love that they are all chinese coins with holes as they lend themselves to gags, ribbon effects, etc. If you want to combine a couple strong routine, get the Charming Chinese Challenge by Troy Hooser in conjunction with this. There are so many other things you could add, folding chinese coin, flipper coin, etc. Another idea is to get a single chinese coin (half dollar size) and cut a slit in it from the edge to the hole. You can now add a linking coin effect. All in all, possibly the best copper/silver alternative out there. Also, the DVD was well done. I Highly recommend it.
