Is anyone doing the version of 7 Keys to Baldpate that Trickshop.com sells?
This effect is new to me and seems like it would be killer. I know there are several gaffed and un-gaffed versions available, but am curious about this one in particular.

Thanks
Jack

Price: $4.95

This is a very tidy "purist’s" effect.

That is to say an effect not needing anything "special" apart for the knowledge of the handling and a strong, well rehearsed presentation.

The handling is pretty easy and there is good rationale for all/any moves. You begin and end clean because you are.

Having had a "Wonder Lock" and "Luvrs Lock" I can hand on heart say I would pick this effect if I were compelled to choose just one "lock-based effect". As with any lock effect, a great deal of suspicion will natually be place upon the one tangible "antagonist"...the lock itself. If you are percieved as performing "magic"...what spectator wouldn't have a tiny itch in ther mind saying... "A trick lock I bet."

There are no sleights, gaffing or knuckle-busting in the trick, just a pretty simple handling procedure. You can get everything you need for the effect (the lock and keys)for about $10-15 (£7.50-10 GBP) and there is nothing to make.

As with other Trickshop downloadable effects the price is low, are nicely put together, clear and well illustrated. This file is PDF and is 12 pages in length. It offers Annemanns traditional routine of "7 Keys" as well as their newer version". You can either download your purchase and/or you can have it sent to your email address.

Sounds really good, but how do you obtain all of the keys that are required?

Not to sound silly here, but any key shop will have what you're looking for, some even sell locks as well.

Here in the UK there are several shops that sell things for £1.00. One up the street from where I live sells two locks for a Pound. Each lock has two keys with it. I'll end up with three or five locks, but will have what I need for a few Quid.

Or you could buy a lock, take one of the keys to a key shop and buy a similar key type, asking the staff to cut the key, so it will fit but will not open the lock.

Richard Osterland has a rather excellent routine of this on his ETMMM DVD.
Good Thoughts.

Is it different from Maven's Kurotsuke?
Thanks.

Don't forget my version in the MIDNIGHT IN THE DARK MUSEUM book.

Yes. Kurotsuke is an effect where there is five balls in a bag, one of them is black, the other four are white. five spectators each select a ball from the bag and the performer is able to identify who has the black ball.

I bought 7 Keys to Baldpate from Trickshop.com. It's OK.
It's worth the small price, but not anything that I couldn't come up with myself.
I also have correct-key.

I have tried this trick in many different ways.
I even used a version from the Seance book.
But I just can't get it to play big.
It may just be me though.

Thanks... but I meant the same handling! Anyway, I would do it the same way!
