he had a problem with all us magic dealers who stole his stuff. He claimed that Tannens took some things...but whatever...he was a quality guy...I bought the linking rings...very high quality....ken was a character...I miss him...

the rising card trick...fred kaps dancing chrome stick....the three card trick with four cards...

ok here's the ken brooke instructions I promised last night but couldnt find.

it comes from the cups and balls instructions....
"Gentlemen...For over 35 years i have studied Cup and Ball magic. The classic effect using three cups and several balls is one of the most difficult tricks in magic to perform correctly. It was a trick I have performed thousands of times. I have written about it, had it filmed, performed several times on television in all parts of the world.........

i thank you for making this purchase. if you are not sure about any point, feel free to write and ask. Call if at all possible, and I will gladly, without charge, take you through the working.

That sums it up....

This man was an original, a dedicated, honest, solid, unique character .....the kind of guy you meet and know you better stay close to him cause
this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to have such a wonderful experience.
