On August 3, 2005, expert coin magician Mike Gallo lectured at the world famous Magic Castle in Hollywood California. That lecture was recorded. On this one hour and 30-minute video Mike explains some of his finest routines and handlings of classic coin and close-up magic:

Gadabout Coins From Bobo's coin magic and based on a Milt Kort handling, Mike combines the handlings into an easy to do coin routine with a very surprising ending. Worth the price of the entire video. Included in the explanation is Mike's handling of the Bobo Coin switch making the move more natural and softer than the traditional handling.

Coins Across & Coins Thru the Table Utilizing an easy to make gimmick (literally takes 2 minutes to make), Mike combines two of the best known plots in coin magic into one cohesive routine that will blow audiences away! Included is an excellent discourse on multiple coin lapping that can be used in many routines.

Ball and Vase Yeah, it's the trick that came with your first magic set. However, this routine is nothing like that! Based on the routine by Michael Skinner, Gallo's routine was originally released as its own DVD (sold for upwards of ), now this effect is included with a very detailed explanation as part of this download. Dust off your prop and start working. This routine is a visual stunner with an epic final load.

Coins and Glass An impromptu penetration of coins through a card case. Inspired by a routine of Derek Dingle's, this is an easy to do routine with an extremely deceptive load into a spectator's hand. If you ever wanted to do a technically easy effect but you also want to work out your nerves of steel, this is the routine for you!

The Four Coin Vanish Probably the least impromptu effect on the video, HOWEVER if you ever wanted an excuse to buy some custom coins, this is definitely it! Quick, visual and looks like real magic!

Rumsey Based on the work of Milt Kort (attributed to Rumsey...not Ramsay), Mike teaches an excellent vanish in conjunction with the four coin vanish(above) but can also be used with balls, dice or any other small object. If you own the book “Kort”, there is no doubt you read this sleight. Now you can see it delivered and described with perfect timing and finesse.

Shakesphere Developed independently of the Neal Prete effect, this is a visual, three phase penetration of a ball through a salt shaker. Easy to do, visually appealing and packed with straight forward magic.

Okito Goes Wild A stunning visual Okito coin box routine that varies from the basic routine so much that by the end of the routine, magicians after seeing this, will be picking their jaws off of the floor. This is an excellent routine with an ending that will surprise even the most astute observer. An excellent Okito routine for laymen!

Coins Through the Table 2 Another version of the classic coins through the table. This version is exceptionally clean with a surprise ending! This is an excellent example of Mike's thinking on naturalness in the design of magic.

Wild Coins A simply beautiful display of direct, hard hitting coin magic!

Instant Transposition A magical transposition of eight coins within two handkerchiefs. Based on an Ed Marlo coin routine (yep, Ed Marlo and coins...go figure). A very simple routine that utilizes the Gypsy Switch, a most underutilized sleight. Very practical and very direct!

Ramsay Without Tears An exceptionally direct handling of the Ramsay cylinder. One of magic's most treasured classics.

Filmed on video tape, the quality is not high definition however every attempt to preserve the quality of the original has been made. This video contains eleven proven routines, several sleights and a great deal of useful information from one of magic's greatest participants. Do not miss your chance to own this excellent concentration of magic that you will do, at an unbelievable price!

When he performs you are immediately put at ease by his friendly demeanor, and then BAM, he hits you over the head with mind blowing magic that you had no idea was coming!"

EXCELLENT LECTURE Report this review

Based on a negative review and some negative comments, I hesitated to purchase this download. I reread all of the reviews again. The general consensus was that the magic was very good. There were some negative comments regarding the production value of the video. Despite the production comments, I decided to take a chance. I'm very happy I did. The video and sound are good. I was able to watch the performances and explanations with no problem. The magic is TERRIFIC! Gallo did a great job of performing. He was VERY clear with his explanations. I am very happy with my purchase.

He is a great magician, no doubt about that. But the very noisy sound and extremely low video quality, makes it difficult to watch. And that is really a pity. I looked forward to see how the Okito box works (plan to buy one), but because of the low quality, it was almost impossible to see and hear the routine. 😢

Worth It Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 3rd, 2018
Worth the money even if he didn't teach a single trick. Mike Gallo routines where just fun to watch. The bonus is he teaches all the tricks. The downside is some of the tricks need some gimmicks and props. The quality of the video has a homemade feel, but watchable. Because of that I thought about giving 4 stars, but I just enjoyed it so much. It was worth the money.

Nicely Presented Lessons, easy to understand ,one video lessons like Ramsay without tears was cut a little ,by cut I mean the Frame was not centered properly so a little of the action was out of the frame. other than that ---excellent.
