I am a huge fan of matrix and chink-a-chink routines. I have checked into the following sources for great routines, but I was wondering where I might find more that are good.
I have checked out:
Extreme Dean, Vol. 1 and 2
Matrix God's Way by Jason Born
Paul Gertner's Steel and Silver (book and videos)
Impossibilia (Bob Kohler's Two ahead is Better than One)

Any other resources would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

My two card reverse Matrix appears on my Knockout Coin Magic DVD. My Quadra Coin Reverse Matrix appears on my 1986 lecture DVD, available through me. My Ultimate Reverse Matrix appears on the COINVENTION DVD. David Roth's Chink A Chink, and a nice translocation effect by Mike Gallo appear on our new COINS ACROSS DVD. PM me for prices and ordering, or look for the threads elsewhere on this site.

Matrix is Al Schneider's routine and can be found in his booklet of that title. His routine was also published in an issue of Genii Magazine about ten years ago.

Chink-a-chink using coins can be found in David Roth's 1976-77 notes, later on in Harry Lorayne's magazine Apocalypse which has been reprinted in four volumes by L&L publishing, and again in David Roth's Expert Coin Magic by Richard Kaufman. Later on, Michale Ammar asked and got David Roth's permission to publish a version using a gaff and done on the floor called "Shadow Coins".

Doug Conn has one Chink-a-chink routine using scrable tiles (www.dougconn.com)
Mike Powers has a matrix with a boston boxx that's very nice (www.mallofmagic.com)
Tyler Corbin has a matrix that is very nice as well (www.corbinmagic.com)
All of them have videos in their webpages.
Hope this help you.

In addition to all the great routines mentioned above by our fabulous Café coins experts, I also like Daniel Garcia's chink-a-chink routine with no extra coin in his Project DVD.

There is a very nice version of Chink-A-Chink in Stars of Magic by Mohammed Bey (Sam Horowitz) based on Malini's chink-a-chink routine.

Dingle developed a matrix routine worth considering called Four Coins in the Countin'. You can find it in Dingle's Deceptions and also the Complete Works.

Pick up Michael Ammar's series. His coin and money magic videos has two matrix routines I think. Tom Mullica does a matrix with beer bottle tops in his impromtu series.

Chink-A-Chink is a very nice coin magic and I always do it whenever possible.

I first learnt that in David Roth's Tape Vol.1.

There is also one called knihc-a-knihc by Paul Cummins in his Up In Smoke DVD which includes an instant backfire phrase.
It only takes a minute to learn how it is done, but takes a lifetime to learn how to do it.

You've got a coin?

Actually, I don't believe that it's on his project DVDs (but I could be mistaken). From what I had seen, he sells it as a separate effect called SH4DE. It's an amazing routine, almost like a tabled 4 coin flurry. VERY beautiful (and barehanded).

If you really want to start from scratch, learn either David Roth's on his Expert Coin Magic Made Easy Volume 1, or go WAAAAAAAAAAY back to the chink-a-chink in the Stars of Magic book.

John Born also has a 3 DVD set out with Jason Dean...
It's made by Magic Makers... But is a pretty good set... Great value.
The names "Cutting edge Coins and Cards"...

It's got a Translocation effect with 2 backfires...and a Borrowed Quarter Matrix...
You end super clean in this Chink a Chink effect...
Your hand is not pinned to the tabel at the end of the effect...

Check it out.
Shawn.

I'm surprised only one person mentioned Dean Dill.

I consider Dean on the leading edge of the Matrix Plot.
His ideas are very creative. I recommend all his videos and books.

The David Roth Chink a Chink routine is fun to watch and easy to do. I love it!

Dean's Tonight Show Matrix is a coin assembly with 4 cards and "4" coins. He performed it on TV on Johnny Carson's show. I remember seeing it on TV when he first did it. I believe it's explained on his most recent DVD set (Extreme Dean).

Yes it is. Dean's work has popularized the 4 coins in 4 corners plot enormously. You can't go wrong with them.
Just make shure you also read and study Al Schneider's original "Classic Matrix". It has essential insight on the "why's" of the plot. It has changed my view on matrix completely.
I performed matrix routines about a hundred times the last 5 days during a tradeshow. Just to amuse myself I did about 4 different versions. Al's original seemed to get the greatest responses...

Tales and dreams are the shadow-truths,
that will endure when mere facts are dust and ashes,
and forgot."
