After one of Daytona Magic’s carpenters saw a performance by David Copperfield he asked, “How much would one of those DUCK BUCKETS cost?” When he was told the price he clutched his heart and said, “I’ll bet you that I can build one of them dang things cheaper!” Daytona Magic said, “Look, there is a lot of work and material in that effect but why not give it a try.”
About two weeks later, not to Dayton’s surprise because this guy has ‘hands of gold’, he walked in to show his version of the DUCK BUCKET. It was GORGEOUS. This is the Super Deluxe Giant version of that original design. When they say giant, they mean GIANT! It measures 16 inches high, and 14 inches in diameter, with a gloss black formica finish trimmed in red and brass fixtures. It looks fantastic on stage!
Here’s some effects you can do with a DUCK BUCKET:
1: A duck or small animal can be made to vanish by placing into the bucket and then showing it empty.
2: A duck or small animal can be made to appear after showing the bucket empty.
3: One animal can be changed to another.
4: A group of silks can be made to change into a small animal. Of course many elaborate routines can be performed with this versatile effect.
