Theory 11 presents Transit

We're very excited about the latest effect from our friends at Theory 11!

Transit is absolutely visual. People won't believe it as a rubber band penetrates from finger to finger across your hand. The video looks great, come by the store and see a live demo from one of our magicians!

Watch the video here.

Awesome lecture by Mark Mason!

Mark Mason came and lectured for us here at Tannen's this past Wednesday night. The lecture went great! The crowd really enjoyed Mark's routines and his handling on some of magics classic ideas.

We were very impressed with Mark's SOLO, a killer card sandwich routine. We also loved seeing him perform CoinFlux, a matrix routine you can do with one hand!

Thanks again Mark for the awesome lecture!

Remember, we are continuing our lecture series Anthony Jacquin's first ever lecture in the United States. That lecture will be held on Tuesday, November 9th at 7:00PM. Don't miss your chance to see this!

Now Available Torn 2 Pieces by Shawn Farquhar

We are proud to bring you the latest creation by Shawn Farquhar as seen on the hit TV show Ellen!

Torn 2 Pieces, available now!

Torn to Pieces is the killer effect Shawn Farquhar has kept secret for over fifteen years! It's the cash cow Shawn turns to time-after-time, whether he needs a client to book him again and again, or wants to make a lasting impression. This is Shawn's version of Old Faithful, (some of us have an effect with a pet name that you can count on to pay it forward every time - if you don't, or even if you do - now you have another one!).

Effect: Basically a real photograph signed by the spectator is torn into four pieces. The photo is really torn. Then in an instant all four pieces join together but in the wrong order leaving the spectator with a mismatched photo with their signature! That's right their signature is on the odd "almost restored" photo. You get a sample of the photograph, Adobe Photoshop template, jpeg of two additional photos already prepared and a detailed instructional DVD that explains how you can start doing this trick.
