Magic download (video) by Troy Hooser ($12.00)
To commemorate the release of Troy Hooser's two-book set, we're now releasing an unpublished effect via instant download: Coin Melody. This is not a coin trick, but instead a ROUTINE with a stunning beginning, middle and end. This routine will make you want to follow along instantly, and we encourage you to do so. It's a "soft" routine that requires a light touch, but no fussy moves or palms.
Note: requires a shell coin, which we sell in many currencies.

Customer reviews for Coin Melody
There is good news and bad news for this effect. The good news is it's an excellent effect that is well within the grasp of the intermediate coin handler. Since the effect is performed chest height you can perform for 2 or 200. I also like how it is performed with "barebones" patter allowing the magician to tailor the presentation to suit his or her needs. I have had the privilege of meeting Mr. Hooser, and watch him perform what looks like real magic. Now the bad news: To quote Mr Josh Jay, "Everything looks better in Troy's hands." Mr. Hooser has a softness to his magic that will take quite some time to develop. At the risk of being cliché, the softness is the real secret to Mr. Hooser's magic. Give this effect the respect it deserves, and learn it thoroughly. You will then have an elegant piece of magic you can carry with you wherever you go. Personally I hope no one else learns this effect so I can have it all to myself.
Amazing. Great routine. Just what you would expect from Troy.
Real worker and smooth as silk.
This is a well explained routine; Troy has done very well showing the moves with the video. I feel I can do this with a fair amount of practice. I give it five stars
Very good. Quick, easy, concise and entertaining. I can't wait to use it.
Ok. I’ve been a huge fan of Troy since reading his books DESTROYERS and MOMENTS by Joshua Jay……his methodology is simple, yet diabolical. The sleights are simple in concept, but not in execution. Troy uses misdirection like a maestro. And for those magicians scared of not being able to execute a particular sleight, don’t be. Troy teaches you in such a calm and precise demeanor that, like a Jedi, he completely disarms the magician with his natural presence and confidence that, if used appropriately, will completely baffle your audience. And also, without sounding too grandiose, make any audience watching you perform in either close up or parlor setting believe they are in the presence of a true wizard. Like I said, I’m already a fan of Troy’s work thanks to Joshua. But actually getting the opportunity of watching him work on video is a true treat. Along with the COIN MELODY download, I also recommend picking up his CHARMING CHINESE CHALLENGE. Bottom line: Troy’s work with coins is up there with David Roth, Giacomo Bertini, and Geoff Latta. Troy is a true gem! Read his work….watch his work….live his work.
Troy Hooser has always been influential in the area of coin magic. This stand-up and chest height coin routine, something he became famous of, is very visual and fun. It is well thought of and combines the popular routines in the field of coins: Coin production, visual coins across, jumping coins from pocket, and vanishes. It takes time to get over some moves, but if you're an intermediate coin handler, you would absorb the routine immediately. Great work, Troy!
