Once I saw Marion Boykin's Crimp Change I put everything else on hold. It wasn't trivial (for me) to learn, but when properly executed it really does look like true magic... especially since it is pure sleight of hand.

I never purchased the trick, but I assume that my handling is very similar, if not the same, as Boykin's (his hands, of course, are a lot smoother than mine ^_^ ). In any case, after three days straight of practice, here is my presentation of the Crimp Change:

Comments and constructive criticism are welcome. ^_^

Thanks,
Kyle

Very nice, but please buy off MB. He is such a good guy and offers extra help without question. BTW what is the piano music?

Mwmagic,

Oh, I have no doubt that's true -- I've heard nothing but great things about MB. Knowing me, I probably will end up purchasing something else in the future.

Thanks,
Kyle

P.S. The music is an Etude (Op.33, No.5) by Rachmaninov... my webcam doesn't do sound ^_^

The Crimp change looks good for me
the Blow Change, needs more work.

Hi Kyle,

I thank you for the kind words about my Crimp Change, glad you're enjoying it. Smile It is a tremendous move when done well as you say. Your try at it is admirable but keep working with it as it get's smoother & smoother until the coin just changes off a soft wave.

As to the Blow Change (which the Mick-Man absolutely loves Smile), well you want the coin to visually "morph" from one coin to another. That said, there's a lot to learn from my downloads, quite a few nuances that makes the effect quite a bit more precision and magical. Smile

Again, I appreciate your take on it, keep up the good work and when that coin just changes effortlessly as you see me do it, then you got it. Smile Oh and welcome to the Café. Smile

Thanks for the encouragement, it means a lot to me ^_^ I definitely know what you mean with the nuances... I am lacking a few things and the devil is always in the details. Nevertheless, I'll certainly keep working on it ^_^

Thanks Again,
Kyle

Looks nice, but that's not the Crimp Change. It would be worth the small investment to get MB's original.

Nice work, still needs smoothing out I do agree with Wes its not quite the crimp change. It would be well worth your time and money to get that download from Vinny's site.
Keep up the hard work

I couldn't hold out any longer, so I made the purchase ^_^ I must say, MB does a great job explaining the routine and it's origin; definitely worth the investment. It's quite clear now that, as someone pointed out to me, I was indeed "working too hard" in my interpretation of the change... but now I know two different handlings of the same effect ^_^

Thanks Again,
Kyle

Actually, I was going to say something about that in the previous post... I'm really amazed at the sense of community and family between virtually everyone on this forum, it's really great ^_^

The Crimp Routine has taken my coin work to a new level. If you are looking for good coin routines, and want to get the best bang for your but look no futher. T

This is it.

You will get more out of MB's downloads, then most DVD at $50.00, and their is a GREAT selection all of which are priceless.

Thanks :- ) MB
