Demo Video

This demo shows how a Drumhead Tube works.
You will NOT be getting the tube seen in this video, Please read the description of what you are buying below.



A bargain for the working magician!
This preowned prop is MISSING THE METAL END CAPS.
However, you can easily operate it using ordinary rubber bands!

All you have to do is place the tissue paper over both ends of the tube, and simply wrap rubber bands around to hold the paper in place.

The classic large red P&L Drumhead Tube is back!
A design made famous by the legendary Petrie & Lewis Magic (1918-1968), this quality metal prop can now be part of your show!
(Note: This is a P&L STYLE tube- Petrie Lewis is long out of business, and did not make this tube.)

This is a really EASY way to produce lots AND LOTS of silks!
Small enough for young children to handle, but clever and flashy enough for professional stage magicians!

Show the Drumhead Tube empty by tipping it and looking through it, or by dropping a wand through it.
Place an ordinary sheet of tissue paper over each end, and fasten it to the tube with rubber bands.
When you pop through the paper, you pull out loads of individual silks, or even a really long silk streamer!
This is big enough to use our 30 foot Huge Production Streamer!

This trick is so easy, yet plays BIG and COLORFUL!
It gets a GIANT reaction every time- because it seems impossible!
But if you can reach into the tube, you can do the trick!

Great for nearly EVERY type of show you are doing!
The Drumhead Tube can easily be seen from a distance, so you can use it from the stage.
It is deceptive enough to be used fairly close up too, like in front of a group of children at a birthday party, or in front of a classroom!

The secret gimmick is built right into the trick- no sleight of hand or skill required!

This trick is also known as P&L Phantom Tube.

CONDITION: used but operational.
The tube does show some wear (see photos).
The inside of the tube at one end has dings and scrapes (see photo above).
THE END CAPS ARE MISSING but you can fix the paper to the tube with rubber bands (see photos).

This red painted metal tube is about 7" high, and 3" in diameter.
