Message: Posted by: maverick23 (Nov 30, 2005 02:22AM)
Does anyone know of a good place to get an Asrah form from? I don't mind where I have to get it from but if there is anywhere in the UK that would be great.

I think most builders can make you one. In UK there is Dream Concepts

Whether they make forms, I don't know but as they're in the same country its definitely worth checking.

Believe it or not, most things for a show are not available through a magic dealer !

Steven,

This is even true of silk props. People are shocked to see the differences available. But you are correct. Magic shops have to deal with a broader market. My hat's off to them. They have to have ESP to survive. They take risks professional prop builders never have to deal with.

However, the customers are different too.

My old habit is to call Chalet first. If I wanted a fine furniture finish, I would call Tabman or Michael Baker. They are closer to me. Chance Wofe is another.

VISA is probably inadequate. You'll need current assets. But it's worth it.

I will also add in that most magic shops cannot afford to carry professional grade items. Yes, there are exception to this but most of them are selling to guys who do not work a lot. A pro demands a products that will work 365 years for 10 years or more. That is why you pay more for the same effect from different manufacturers. You really get what you pay for.

Most manufacturers, because of the cost and time involved, would rather sell directly to their customers in order to keep the cost low. Why should they do all the work and then give 40% or more of the profits to a dealer?

If you ask around with pros, you can always find what you need.
