Hey guys, I've recently received the David Roth "expert coin magic...made easy" VHS collection. I believe its 20 volumes in all and it was put out by A-1 Multimedia.
I've thought about buying the DVD set by the same name, but was unsure if they're the exact same product.
The DVD set is 3 or 4 discs as opposed to 20(or more?) Vhs tapes. Are the DVDs re-shot and updated material or is it all the same footage just released on DVD?

I can't seem to find a straight answer anywhere.
Thanks for your help!

I think, in some thread, someone confirmed that they are the same, at least the first 3 volumes.

Maybe its worth checking with the publisher to confirm.

If you do decide to get the DVDs, they are easier to deal with, let me know, I only have the first 3 in the series.

I thought the 3 dvd set was the whole thing.
Are there more than that, an additional set?

The original "David Roth's Expert Coin Magic Made Easy" was three VHS tapes. It was released as three DVDs, although I have a one-disk version with all three on it.

Then there is the "David Roth Ultimate Coin Magic Collection," which was originally issued as eight VHS tapes and has been released as four DVDs, two tapes on each disk.

There were also the Tannen's "Stars of Magic" VHS tapes, four of which were Roth material along with an "All Star" tape. They have since been released on DVD.

Oh now I see where I've gotten confused. volumes 18-20 are of the "expert made easy" series. David Roth's contributions were 1-3, 11, 18-20 of the series; I believe.

There is great material on all of David's dvds. The older ones have classic material, but its all practical and very clean with good angles. Compare that to a lot of the stuff coming out today which is very angly, or acrobatic. Sometimes people don't see that pretty isn't always practical, and hard isn't always better.
Available at dealers EVERYWHERE - RUBINSTEIN COIN MAGIC- The biggest book on coin magic since Bobo's Modern Coin Magic, and the most important since David Roth's Expert Coin Magic! Hardbound, 500 pages, 20 chapters of state of the art coin magic illustrated with 930 crisp photos! A contribution chapter from over 20 of the world's top coin magicians! This will be the book against which all future books on coin magic will be measured! Already called a Modern Classic!!
And if anyone (USA ONLY) needs some of the coin stuff used in the book, shoot me an email at rubinsteindvm@aol.com as I have some limited supplies of coins and props used in the book.

I agree 100% that a lot of the stuff I'm seeing now seems to be made for performing towards one person standing directly in front of you at eye level. I'm excited to delve into some Roth material and start learning some coin work.
I do own the book Expert Coin Magic, But id like to refer to the videos as well.

And when you do want more, there is the superb "New York Coin Magic Seminar" series that sadly may have come to completion with the 2009 (I believe) release of volume 16.
