Topic: Where to buy a pouch?
Message: Posted by: unclesamayen (Oct 25, 2009 03:32PM)
I'm considering buying a busking pouch.
Can anyone give me some advice?
Where to buy and how to buy?
I've already found one good site:
Is there another site that I can choose?
Thank you very much.

You found the site that has the best. Frank will take good care of you.

Ambitiouscard is good and Gazzo makes a first class pouch.

There are skant few people out there that make products for street performers. It is a small community. Buy from Frank or buy from Gazzo. They both make great products at appropriate prices.

You won't find anything out there that offers the same professional look for a comparable price.

You won't.

I've tried.

We've all tried.

Frank or Gazzo...that's it.

You won't be disapointed with either purchase and that's what makes them worth the $.

Otherwise, look in the tool belt aisle at Home Depot, or the balloon apron section of an online clown site.

I have one of Frank's Busker's Pouch. I friend uses the Cellini pouch. Workmanship is great. Think about how you would use it to help determine the right one for you. I'll recommend his stuff.

Have fun and make big hats.

I also recommend Frank's stuff at the http://www.theambitiouscard.com

Having owned his excellent Busker Pouch for a few years now I can say the thing is durable, looks nice and I am always proud to wear it while performing, it has so many useful pockets.

Also, Frank has a new Malini style eggbag, this thing is gorgeous, love the way it handles and feels. Plus, you will get great customer service with Frank.

Get Frank's stuff!

I have Gazzo's Poacher Pouch and Frank's Poacher Pouch. I use both. They're both different sizes. Both are excellent quality.

Buy the best from the best and you've made an investment. Buy crap from someone and you'll lose money because down the road you'll be buying from the best anyway. And by then prices might have even gone up.

I'm not certain but Gary Animal could still be making pouches as well.

Many people have good luck with a modified ladies' purses as well, If you're willing to be a little artsy craftsy.

I use an "ambitious card" pouch, and I've been on the look out for a Gazzo pouch as well. I just saw one go for approx 250$ on ebay a few weeks ago.

One more vote for frank.

Depends on what you are doing with it. If you doing Gazzo style cups and balls show buys Gazzo pouch. If you are doing manipulation act like Jimmy Talksalot buy his pouch from Frank. If doing a strolling show buy the pouch from Frank.

While you're there check out Frank's table servante, fantastic job...I have his pouch also but thus mounts directly to my table..

either way you can't go wrong with Frank's or gazzo's stuff, top quality all the way.

I bought one of Franks pouches about 4 years ago, and after 100's of shows, there is yet to be so much as a broken stitch or thread. Highly recommended.

I have a gazzo pouch and it it great - the two thumb tip holders built in are great also-(as an extra feature) Sadly I only did street busking for about 3 months before I decided I wasnt best suited for it and focused on my close up -

If your still looking I may be willing to sell my gazzo pouch and(jumbo) rnt2 gazzo street cups for a fair price($729 of kit - would sell for $500 inc shipping)- pm me

- as Im not useing them enough and its a shame to see them gather dust hardly used.

Thanks for all the feedback on my pouches.
Next is the "Parlor Pouch". It should be done tomorrow, I'm told.
A little smaller and lighter than the buskers pouch. Meant for use in a parlor show,
as opposed to the street.

It was done later than expected but the parlor pouch is finally a reality.

Props, also, for Frank's products. Just bought one of his "strolling pouches...top notch! BMFM! (By a Magician for Magicians!) Remember, you get what you pay for!

I have just retuned from Zurich, where I had the pleasure to perform and teach, at the Zauberbar which is a Magic Bar in Switzerland.

Here I saw the Cellini Pouch I must say the standard of these pouches are outstanding compared to copys I have seen.

Jim Cellini spent a lot of his time here and gave his direct blessing on the production of his pouch.

So if you want the closest to the origernal deal and you want to buy a Cellini Pouch, buy it from Hoerbi you can reach him by his website http://www.zauberbar.ch/

The thing I liked most about the Cellini Pouch is how the pockets tapper to left and right.
Just like Cellini explained in the Royal Touch.
The copy I saw does not, which makes it harder to retrive your loads.
