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.

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!

Classic effect Report this review

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.

Love It Report this review

I love this trick! It's very easy, takes little practice, fools everyone, and looks cool! There are no gimmicks, there's no setup. If someone handed you four cards and coins you could do it right then and there.

Don't forget a closeup pad! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 23rd, 2006
This trick is really easy and fun to perform, don't even bother performing this on a surface that doesnt have some sort of cloth over it, your best bet is to perform it on a closeup pad, my suggestion is to buy a pad, its great for more than just this trick. Anyway, get this trick its great!
