HI all,

I am looking for more info on CD manipulation. Are there any good books on the subject? Someone was telling me to get a certain book on Jumbo Coins, is this a good way to go?
Thanks,
Jon

Getting a book on Jumbo Coins may get you started.

Coming from someone who has performed CD manipulations for several years - it may not be the best way to go.

The vast majority of CD manipulations utilize the hole in the center of the disk for various moves (productions, changes, vanishes, utilities, etc)

The more recently published material will be much more helpful when you start learning the basic concepts of manipulating CDs.

Thanks Derek. What is available? Someone told me John Sheets (i think that is the name) has a book out, where is that available and what is it called?

I know I'm probably gonna get flamed for this, so I'm pulling on my asbestos underbritches... I recieved, as a gift, a (GASP!) MagicMakers DVD starring Eddy Ray entitled Showoff With CDs. It has a lot of good stuff in it that you might check out. It does have a few sections on using black art for the manipulations. I prefer the straight sleight of hand stuff in it though.

The double DVD (plus special manipulation CDs) are by my frined Adrian MAn in HK. I've seen the preview discs and they are fantastic! Hocus-Pocus has just released them and you can access the preview videos from their website!

Hi Magicbern Smile

Can advise what is the main different between the Deluxe 30 pieces CD Box Set at $75 & Standard 15 pieces CD Box at $29?

Very curious cos is'nt buying 2 sets of Standard 15 pieces CD Box(Total: 30 pieces) at $29ea..ONLY $58, then why 30 pieces Deluxe is $75?

It is because the box is different or the Deluxe CD quality is better?

Thanks

Dove-boy,

I have no answer as the sample box I got from Adrian was the deluxe box of 30 manipulation CDs. I will pass your question along and see if I can get an answer. On my box it says 'ultra-thin' manipulation CDs so I don't know if there's a difference in thinness...

Mystery solved....typo error in the listed retail price for 15 CD set...now they have changed the price from $28.95 to $44.95....so getting the 30CD sets will save $10....now this make sense... Smile

Yea, I will go with "Showoff" too. But it could of been better, for example: show a full act, show how to file, show how to put the coloring on, etc.

Okay, if you want a book, Definately check out John Sheets CD Manipulation Manual. I just got it yesterday, and I've already devoured it! It's full of notes, and Stickie notes, and I have all my CD's set. The book is so well laid out, and everything is easy to understand. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to start CD manipulation.

A new DVD (VOlumes 1 and 2) are now out called Laser. I'm not too sure of the creator (maybe Adrian Mann), but the demo videos look real nice. You can see the demo clips here. I have not purchased these, so I can not comment on them. Here is the link:

Hope this helps!

I sugest you to find books about JUMBO Coin's manipulation.
Everybody knowa about the DVD Showoff with CD's and LASER.
