Hello and welcome to Novo. This is the bill switch that Alan goes to when he wants to leave his spectators absolutely stunned. Novo lets you take one bill from the spectator and with a wave of your hand you will be able to double or change its value.

We wanted you to see Novo exactly like the spectator see it. Not cuts, no fancy edits and no messing about. So here is the Novo demo which is a one take live shot. Enjoy.

When creating Novo, Alan set himself a few simple rules:

1: It had to be quick and easy to set up. Once you have the method down for Novo you will be able to set it up in under 5 seconds with paper money.

2: Novo had to be easy to do in a real performing environment. With Novo you have a 180 viewing angle. The only really bad angle is from the back as with most bill switches. It is as easy a waving your hand to do.

3: It had to be UNGIMMICKED. Yes that's right, Novo uses not gimmicks at all. You only ever use 2 ungimmicked bills during the routine. Nothing else.

4: It had to be visual. We think Novo is as visual as any bill change on the market. That's why we made the demo a single unedited shot. Alan himself will tell you the performance was not perfect but we think that speaks volumes for how visual Novo really is.

5: Everything had to be inspect able. The bill at the start is borrowed and the bill at the end is inspect able. In fact if you really want to, you can let them keep it. Did we mention it only uses two bills? So everything is inspect able.

The Novo download is an MP4 video that is just under 30 minutes where Alan Goes into every detail you will need to know to set up and perform Novo.

As we stated before, it will work with any currency BUT plastic bills will take a little more time to work in correctly. Alan took a day to work in one of the new plastic
Scottish bills and it works just fine.

Also with American bills you will need to practice a little more to make the move look perfect.

However Alan did perform this hundreds of times at the magic castle using borrowed money so it does work just as well. Novo truly does work with all currencies however some will take a little less practice than others. We just want to be open an honest with what you get.

The product page says this can be done with US and plastic currency. I think this statement is deceptive due to the way that the bill change occurs. If both bills (the original and the one it transforms into) are the same size, then it becomes very difficult (if not impossible) to not flash a hidden bill. I think the product page should be changed to explicitly address this.

The teaching in the video is also painstakingly boring to watch, longer than necessary and poor video quality.

You start and end dirty and CANNOT cleanly show your hands empty. The change looks cool, but then he suggests that you hand out the bill you transformed out to the audience even though it is of larger currency. This is because you do NOT end clean. In fact you are dirty the whole time and he does not address this.

Nice Un-gimmicked bill change Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 8th, 2016
I really like this one. The explanation by Alan is very clear. His handling is great, and the change is very visual. I'm in the U.S. and using American bills seems a bit more difficult but very doable. Fair warning, I have not performed this for a live audience as I'm still working on the technique. That said, I've used other ungimmicked bill changes in the past (like the Mobius Switch by Glen West, also a beautiful change). My gut feeling is this will be great when the handling is down. I did change the handling slightly, substituting a classic palm for a finger palm prior to the actual change. This allows the fingers to be open prior to the change (mimicking the open look of a TT change). I'd recommend this one. Nice work to Alan.
