I like Arthur Tivoli's Bill Switch as taught on his "Tivoli in Tivoliland" DVD. It does not use a TT. To briefly view the switch, go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7WiE19W56zY (at 1:27-1:39) and take a look.

Best,

Mike

The classic bill switch is the one published in the book "MY BEST" by J.G. Thompson Jr. Easy and a good switch.

A recent bill switch is the "Gypsy Bill Switch" used by Michael Ammar and others.

Now these are bill switches, not bill change to another bill.

My all time favorte is Dick Zimmerman's Bill switch. Really a master piece.

Again not used as a bill change to another bill.

Magick Balay's Four Quarters is really decent. One of its strengths is that the bill is perceived to never being out of the line of sight by the participant. It is the only bill switch I use, and it is in my pocket, always.

Hello all,

Not sure if this thread is still up but not sure where to post this, does anyone know where the method for this switch can be found, is it even out?

I second 'Money Morph' by Kevin King. It's the best and only one you'd ever need. Bill stays visible nearly 100% of the time during the switch.

The Mike Kozlowski $100 bill switch is awesome and tried and true. I learned it years ago and cannot tell you how many hundreds of times I have performed it. I suggest picking up Jay Sankey's Hundred Dollar Miracles for both teaching on the switch and ideas that are off beat.

As for Kevin King's Money Morph, I got the dvd and couldn't really see much difference between that and the Mike Kozlowski version as taught in the original manuscript. Just my opinion YMMV.

Not quite sure. Looks like a tipless version of Richard Sanders "money morph" He does it very well.

The version I use and won't go back to any other method is Magick Balay's "4 quarters". Absolutely the best and fastest IMO that is a TT.

There are so many switches out there. But the right one really does depend on the application and effect. All will not work in all situations.

I bought Richard Sanders Extreme Burn 2.0. I change five ones to five twenties. It can be done with any bills and it's not that hard to learn. It gets phenomenal reactions from people. The dvd teaches you how to make the gimmick. This is a good effect to help you build confidence.

Thank you all for the replies. However, the problem I am facing is color. From what I see most users on the Café as well as most creators of bill switches out there are Americans. When performing with US dollars the bills blend in so well you can never tell. However, in Europe all the countries that don't have euros use different color bills. Euros are also different color. Both Kozlowsky and Magic Balay (I have played with both) have this flaw that when switching the bills you can just tell the switch because of the sudden color change that is upside down or downside up.

So the best for me so far is Visi-bill - at least from this point of view.

And then comes my next problem: plastic money, where not even Visi-bill can solve it. The problem with plastic money is that they don't really stay folded, they make a lot of noise, and for Visibill performance they just don't wanna bend or pre-bend, especially when folded, so I cannot make them enter easily. So while not impossible to do technically it's almost impossible to do elegantly and flawlessly and silently and smooth.

Thank you for your input!

Hey Aelumag, on your plastic bills, iron them with low heat and I believe your problem will be resolved.
