Post prop builders

Hi guys,

I'm working on a new routine and need three specialty props built. Maybe someone out there is a prop builder or can refer me to
somebody who can build one or all of the following...?

1 a trumpet (that is real & playable) that has a breakaway/detachable bell. The
trumpet needs to look and play like normal, but "break" during the routine.

2 a cabinet can hold an alto horn or a euphonium that has a hidden trap on top
through which I can pull the instrument out of

3 a briefcase or small music case with a false bottom. It will be placed on top of
the cabinet and out of a small case will be produced a big instrument.

This is basically a piece of stage magic, which I don't normally do, so I'm kind of in the dark as to who builds magic props.

Thanks for any suggestions


étienne

I'd recommend Michael Baker (205) 854-9193.
He's in the US and isn't online, but he's great and his prices are reasonable.

Good luck, please post anyone you find that you like.
