"I finally had a chance to read Bill’s wonderful book on pendulums. Without a doubt, this is the best book ever written on the subject. I recommend it without reservation to anyone who is serious about this type of work." - Bob Cassidy
Many modern-day magicians believe that the pendulum is the most underutilized tool in the world of mentalism.
Within Trybil: AKA The Multi-Bob Book, Dr. Bill teaches you how to become an expert operator of this most rare and unique form of magical of tools, the Multi-Bob pendulum. With anywhere from 2 to 6 bobs, you are able to control, and guide your audience members to control, the movements of any single pendulum while the others remain still! It looks and feels like real magic!
Along with learning Dr. Bill’s innovative methods and effects, you will be taught by some of the finest performers and creators in mentalism: Rich Hennessey, John Riggs, Gerard, Dr. Todd Landman, Faucon Of Sakin’el, Mauricio Jaramillo, Michael Weber, Marc Salem, Docc Hilford, Brad Henderson, Kenton Knepper, Tony Razzano, Keith Barry, and Jerome Finley all share one or more effects.
Trybil contains 16+ effects with the Multi-Bob and 9+ effects with a standard pendulum. The plus signs are there because many variations and complete additional effects are described in the instructions all the way up to and including the “In Conclusion” section! Standard pendulum effects are in Trybil to provide some of the most unique and powerful presentations with a single pendulum ever offered in a single collection.
Trybil also includes the original Acidus Novus as printed in Al Mann’s Acidus and a video of its creator, Millard Longman, teaching this classic peek. Two effects utilize Acidus Novus and Dr. Bill wanted to make Trybil as all inclusive as possible.
Another video is from Mauricio Jaramillo and shows him “Long Distance Multibobbing,” influencing pendulum movement from several feet away. This particular shot is from his “Bobbing For ESP,” a combination of telepathy and telekinesis that will blow your mind.
