Fast to see, and even faster to learn!


A terrific effect that combines several different classic magic illusions into one amazing routine!

You can perform this effect as the Passe-Passe Bottles, the Appearing and Disappearing Bottles, the Multiplying Bottles- or all of these in one routine!

Here's how it goes: Show a bottle and a glass to your audience.
Put them on a table and cover each of them with an empty tube.
Now the magic begins with the Passe-Passe (position changing) routine!
Pick up the covers- the bottle and the glass have changed places!
Lower the tubes, and when you raise them again, the glass and bottle have returned to their original positions!
You can repeat this as many times as you'd like.

Just when the audience thinks they know what happens next, you lower the tubes, raise them- and now there are two BOTTLES instead of the bottle and the glass!

Remove one of the bottles from the tube, and place it in full view on the table.
Lower the tube, lift it, and ANOTHER BOTTLE has appeared in the tube!
Repeat this until you have a table full of bottles!

The whole set stores compactly for safe and easy transport.
Made of lightweight material for years of troublefree use.
Bright paper labels!

What You Get

Here's what you'll get:

  • set of EIGHT Multiplying Bottles
  • two tubes
  • printed instructions

You supply the ordinary drinking glass.
You need two 9" silks if you want to do Monticup's routine as in the demo video.

Tips & Ideas

Performance Ideas:

Instead of using a glass and a bottle, start with just one bottle. Use two tubes, one empty and one covering the bottle. You can lift the tubes to show that the bottle has disappeared, then has moved to the other tube, then has multiplied so there is a bottle under each tube.

After a while the labels may begin to show some wear. If you want to replace them, simply use your computer to make a new label design, then print out the new labels on self-adhesive label sheets found at any office supply store.

Customer Reviews

multiplying bottles
The routine is what sold me on these. I've been tempted to buy multiplying bottles for years, but the high price always put me off. These are cost effective alternative to the higher priced sets that are available. Of course I did not expect the same quality as a $500 set, but I was not disappointed with this set. From a distance, this set looks great. And since this is not a closeup trick, I'm not concerned about how they look when you are right next to them. Even though they look pretty darn good close up as well. I'm still learning the routine. I actually goofed it up a few times and got confused about which bottle was supposed to go where. At first I thought the bottles did not fit like they were supposed to, but then I read the instructions again. I also called and Peter Monticup himself explained the routine to me.

Great for the Price
While this set is on the cheaper end of the spectrum (Multiplying Bottles sets usually go for between $200- $500 and sometimes only have five bottles), these still get great reactions. The routine that Peter Monticup shows in his demo is a really good one to use. So thanks for that. The biggest downside of the set is that it has paper labels instead of painted ones. They are prone to getting scratched up after using them a few dozen times. A little tip- just clean off the labels and make your own new set of labels. You can get self stick label sheets at Staples or Office Max. Design a new label and print yourself a set on the label sheets. When those labels start to show wear, just make new ones. Your Bottles will always look fresh. Plus, you have the advantage of being able to make the label say anything you want. You can be creative, you can be funny. There are better versions of this trick out there, but they are a lot more money lot more money. This set will work fine for most magicians and performing situations. The price is certainly right.
