Graham JolleyGRAHAM JOLLEY WRITES: "I have been using a variety of add-a-number pads over the years and I have to tell you Martin that absolutely none of them can compare with the Basil Horwitz Add-a-Number Pad that you have produced. It is an absolute joy to use for many reasons and as far as I am concerned it is the ultimate of its type. It is beautifully made in leather, it is very discreet, natural looking and completely innocent in appearance. What I also love about it is the ease of preparation which can be achieved in literally ten seconds. Magicians who have already purchased this particular item and have used it will already know that you can hand it out and not have to worry about having to retrieve it yourself. It would require a very incompetent mentalist to come unstuck with this amazing prop. Thanks so much Martin." - Graham Jolley, UK
 

What Others Have said:

"I thought I would drop you an email to let you know how much I love the THE BASIL HORWITZ ADD-A-NUMBER PAD. It is a dream to use, I perform a comedy mind control stage act in the comedy clubs in the UK...I recently did the routine and had the spectator come up on stage and call my mum who had the prediction. The reaction was amazing. It is so nice to be able to hand the pad out without any fear. The quality is amazing." - Ashley Turner. UK
 

"A huge thank you for the pad, now gratefully received. Well, I do love it. It's beautifully made as I would expect from you and Tony Curtis. In fact, it's a really elegant prop, without, of course, looking like it's a prop. I've never really got on with the old pencil-on-a-string method, (found them not as reliable as I'd hoped and the necessary move a little big, but maybe that's just me), but this pad eliminates the sellotape and string and snagging, which I think is a good thing. The reset is a doddle too." Daniel Lander UK

The Add-a-Number pad is one of our best selling items. It is based on the principle of the Basil Horwitz Wallet with the hip-pocket sized leather writing pad locking firmly using embedded magnets. It is a tool that allows a whole range of mentalist effects effective on both large and small audiences. The instruction booklet includes full performance descriptions of four stunning routines. We are sure you will be able to add your own. This new batch is made with even higher quality leather than earlier batches.

The Pad can be used without the physical intervention of the performer. For instance, it is passed from one spectator to the next and each is asked to write numbers in sum-form. The last but one spectator is asked to close the pad and then to throw it on to someone else in the audience. The next time the wallet is opened the sum facing the spectator is the forced sum and the real sum is tightly locked away.

Similar effects might force today’s date or a name or a telephone number. One great routine starts when you hand a member of the audience a sealed paper bag with a big question mark on it. Once again the pad is passed around and the final spectator adds up the sum and calls out the total which the magician writes on a large sheet of white paper. The performer asks for someone in the audience with a mobile phone to phone the actual number now written on the large sheet of paper. He or she phones the number and a mobile phone can be heard ringing in the audience. It is the mobile phone which was in the sealed paper bag and when answered the two spectator find that they are speaking to each other.

Credit for the creation of this brilliant pad should go to Tony Curtis in Thailand who makes the Horwitz Wallet for me and it is Tony who came up with the idea of using the same principle for the Horwitz Add-A-Number Pad. Thank you, Tony.
