Manufacturer Says

This routine was inspired by the great Al Schneider.

About the Inventor
One of magic’s deep thinkers, Mr. Schneider is known for his analysis of magic as a performing art. He arrived onto the magic scene with the publication of “Matrix” a coin assembly effect, which has spawned a veritable industry in variations of his original creation. Seldom seen at conventions Mr. Schneider is a low-key performer who likes to let the strength of his effects speak for him.

Great Teaching Report this review

Oz does a great job of teaching the matrix. The matrix is a beautiful effect, and a classic that every magician should be able to perform competently.

THE MATRIX Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 17th, 2015
I welcome learning all of "The Matrix" routines possible, as this is a favorite effect of mine. The teaching in this video was very clear and concise, however, I encourage all magicians performing such routines to make sure the routine has high visibility under camera conditions. In this case, a red pad, or other brighter colored pad, and better lighting would improve spectator visibility.

My only other recommendation is that teachers of Matrix routines should turn over ALL of the cards during their explanation process so there is no doubt as to how the coins are traveling. In this case, there were a couple of times when I wondered if a coin was picked up or left behind.

I am glad I made the purchase, and the oratory was clear, but I welcome the stated modifications. Thank you.

I love this trick. I went to the Magic Castle and saw a guy do something along those lines and I was baffled. Mind you magic is 25% trick and 75% presentation, but this is a STRONG 25% to base your presentation on... AND it's relatively simple.

Oz lays it out well. I'd buy 10 times over and somewhat upset at myself for not finding this sooner!

This video is an adequate (albeit very brief) tutorial on how to do the basic, classic coin matrix effect. You've got 4 cards covering 4 coins, and the coins travel until they're all under one of the cards.

There are just two sleights you need to learn in order to perform this. Neither is especially difficult, although you might want to start with larger coins to make the moves easier. And be aware that a good mat is essential for this. The handling just isn't possible on a table-top, not to mention the fact that on a table-top, the coins would be making some noise when they're not supposed to be.

For a beginner, this is a good intro to a classic routine that has spawned countless variations.

A classic but very cool trick. This is a really good version of the matrix and Oz covers it all in great detail and teaches at a good pace. Good value for a great routine.

Here is another class trick that's been around for a long time. This is a great coin trick to start out with if you don't have a lot of coin stuff. I do however have a few problems with it. The first is that you have to watch the surface that you perform it on, and second, some people tend to figure out what's going on. I still give it five stars because the first two can be avoided with practice. If you aren't familiar with this I recommend trying it out.

I think this trick is really cool. But it's even cooler when magicians do this trick with no cards. But I love this trick, it blows people away.
