i could not figure this out. To my delight, the method is simple and brilliant. I don't know how I
did not figure this out myself, but it makes so much sense to use as a method. Highly recommend
because it lends itself to so many great performances, and Matt explains everything in depth.
Another great one.

I have been looking for something like this to practice my classic force. This trick is easy to
learn, great for walk around, and should give you confidence practicing any force you want. It is
not necessary to force a card to perform this trick, but gives you a kicker ending if used. Also, a
couple of card forces are taught if you are a beginner. I also like Matt's presentational angle and
tips for performing this effect. I am very happy with my purchase.

I was hopeing for the best when I saw the trailer. I have to say its a great idea but everyone I
tried it for figured it out in just a few seconds. I tried making it better but then I couldnt
figure out the color by touch. Not to good when your a professional Magician. Wish I was able to get
my money back on this one.

This trick is clever and provides a number of new ways that it can be used. It doesn't take to long
to learn how to use.
It works rather effectively for the first several performances, the problem
is the thing that makes it work
wears out very quickly and then it does not work at all.
I have purchased four of the gimmicks and all have worn out quickly.
I just can't give Matt a 1 star review because I respect his works so much
and I noticed that there were no 2 star reviews yet. I'm not going to blame Penguin Magic or Matt
Mello for my purchase. Any Magician that has ever held a deck of cars knows exactly what was going
on here. Heck, I could have made the deck because we all have what it takes in our arsenal of
gimmick making goodies. I bought this trick to get Matt's instructions, PERIOD. Oh and because I can
be lazy and I will pay to get something that I could have done myself.
The one thing I
don't like is a video and that has ANY kind of editing. I truly believe that if the presentation can
not withhold a true full viewing of it, it's not going to hold up in the real world either. This is
the only problem that I have ever had with Penguin, is that they will let these misleading videos
slip by for the mighty dollar. Sorry Penguin, I love you guys, but I do shoot from the hip and call
it the way I see it.
Having said all of that.... THIS IS NOT THE CASE HERE. I love the
presentation video and what Matt does is the same you will do. No fancy editing that misleads the
However, I have tried this trick and everyone "GETS IT" right off the bat. There
seems to be no way around it. I read one person's review that said he could fix the problem with
some more use. That was what I was hoping to do. But then YOU can't predict the colors. Darn.
This trick is going on the top self and I will probably never use it in my shows unless I am in
a very loud bar with a lot of drunk frats, and them I think I MAY have a chance. Of course the loud
bar does eliminate part of your show with the deck.
Sorry Matt, I love your work. This
one is not for me. Maybe if they give a discount OR FREE version of Touch Tone 2, should that ever
be released, because there is "No Secret Here." LOL
I hope this help.
I have purchased three of TOUCH TONE MAGIC. I believe that it is a rather easy to use and impressive
trick. The problem that I have with the gimmick is the thing that makes it work, does not work
after a few uses therefore it has very little value.
Anyone with very minimal knowledge of magic would detect it instantly. save your money for something
else unless you want to do this trick to children.
Fun bit of easy to do magic..Great to carry with you at all times for do it Now magic..
This is very clever. And even useable by a blind magician (which I am.)
I am using this effect
as an update to another classic effect!
Good, does what it says.Lends itself nicely to a well thought out routine.
