Like the legendary Cups and Balls, the 3 Shell Game has a rich history that can be traced back to the 1670s.
Like the infamous 3 Card Monte, this gambling swindle has also long fascinated magicians and has been brought from the streets to the Magician’s stage to be performed for entertainment and educational purposes.
The 3 Shell Game was initially performed with real walnut shells. More recently, shells of different shapes, styles, and materials were manufactured especially for magicians.
We believe that a good set of Shells should have the following qualities:
It should be of a suitable weight. Not too heavy, but heavy enough to firmly cover the pea.
It should facilitate the stealing of the pea.
The 3 shells should look identical to add to the deception.
The above qualities do exist in sets available on the market today. However, you would have needed to shell out (pun intended) large amounts of money for a set of quality shells.
TCC Presents - The 3 Shells.
Made of solid brass
Beautiful antique finish for that classic retro look.
Hefty and has a nice weight for better handling.
Smooth edges allow the shells to glide effortlessly across your performing surface.
Through countless research and experimentation, the peas you get are the perfect size and density.
Affordable, yet, of exquisite quality.
Easy to carry. It comes with a flannel carrying bag that fits the shells, peas, and even a shot glass if your routine requires it.
Full instructions is Included.
Nice shells, not to shiny. Great replacement for my plastic ones from vernet
The TCC shells are just right! Perfect size, weight and finish for street performing, yet elegant enough for my corporate close-up work. Thank you gents!
First, I bought these to learn and get better. I love the weight and feel, and they glide well across the pad. These are easy to pull out and practice with, and generates a crowd very quickly. This travels.
Nice weight, beautiful finish.
These shells are well made and they have a nice chime to them. The carry bag that comes with these contains the shells, shot glass, and I also put the peas in them. I really didn't like the peas that come with these but have some Perfect Peas that work very well with these shells. Great value for the price. If I ever lose these I will buy them again.
Très beau produit
So magic with this beautiful material.Bravo !!!
a must have for every three shell performer!
incredible look and sound.
the price is also awsome!!!
the only thing that i recommend is to buy a set of "Perfect Peas" from POP HAYDEN!
first, the peas are a little bit smaller and softer and work smoother then the peas that come with the shells. (5 peas)
second, you also get one or two plastic peas that you can give out for examination!
BUT... if you look for a beautyful set of shells that works great dont look further... BUY THIS ONE!!!!
La vidéo explicative est très bonne et permet d'apprendre les bases.
Les coquilles sont très belles.
Pour ce prix je pense qu'il n'y a pas mieux.
Beautiful and classy
These are the best quality three shells I have ever seen, very professional for my restaurant work!
Très beau produit, la qualité est au rendez-vous
