Michael Ammar, the Compete Cups and Balls vol I and vol II.

I second that. Michael Ammar's Complete Cups and Balls DVD set.

The "Greater Magic Video Library: Cups and Balls" by Twin Cities Magic is very good and gives quite a few examples (Ammar, Rogers, Miller/Thompson etc...) I suggest it highly. I also recommend the "Gazzo Street Cups" DVD.

Good luck, the cups and balls will take you far in magic!

The Ammar set is a very good DVD resource for cups and balls. The Greater Magic video is also excellent.

Hi there,

I would have to agree that the Michael Ammar DVD set is amazing! Goes through every possible move you could think of in the first DVD, and then routines it all in the second! A brilliant way of learning!

Hope this helps!

God bless!

I recommend Mark Wilsons Complete Course in Magic book. It is a great routine that is well tought step by step.
Then take a look at The "Greater Magic Video Library Teach-In" video, there are some fantastic routines and great insights by some real masters.
Then, If you want to learn more, and try new things, Try "Michael Ammars Complete Cups & balls". He teaches so well. You will be more rewarded if you have a little experience and a performable routine before you dive into it.

Don't rush the journey on the cups & balls, after all, you need to take your spectators on some kind of journey when you perform it.

Best,

Mike
Magic is fun!!!

Hi,

There are some Dvs on the market that teach Cups&Balls but I think best one is the Michael Ammar Complete Cups&Balls. You can show every kind of move that you need.


magicially yours,

To actually answer your question about the Chop Cup routine, try
The Classic Chop Cup, by Twin Cities Magic & Costume Co.

It has some of the best Chop Cup work and instruction around, Don Alan, Larry Jennings, and Martin Lewis.
