Product Description

A borrowed RING ends up in a WALNUT!

The WALNUT is in an EGG!

The EGG is in a LEMON!

After almost 15 years of performance, for the first time on DVD, John Shryock releases his signature routine. A true reputation maker. Nothing is held back. All of the tips and tricks from thousands of performances are explained in full detail.

"I used some of John Shryock's ideas in the Ring In Walnut routine that I presented on the David Letterman show. His loading procedure is really quite brilliant, and served as the "missing link" for a routine I'd been working on for several years."
- STEVE COHEN, The Millionaires' Magician

"If you take the time to learn and perform this effect properly, you will have one of the strongest effects in the art of magic!"
- JEFF McBRIDE, creator of McBride's Magic & Mystery School

"I've seen John perform Ring In Walnut at Warren & Annabelle's numerous times and it kills every time! When the ring is produced the audience gasps."
- WARREN GIBSON, owner of Warren & Annabelle's, Maui, Hawaii

I met John Shyrock at a convention a few years ago, and I remember this effect from his close up show. I was fooled. Badly. So naturally I jumped at the chance to review it, and finally know how it works.

The basic effect is that a borrowed ring appears inside a walnut, which is inside of an egg, which is inside of a lemon. It’s a surprising, yet nonsensical nest of boxes kind of approach. The effect looks clean from beginning to end, and there is no switch of any of the items at any time.

The effect does take time and effort to set up, but nothing mind numbingly crazy. You can’t prep dozens of these for a night of walk around, but if you are doing two or three parlor shows in an evening, and you are working out of a side case, it’s no problem.

The DVD itself is nicely produced. The quality of the case, editing, and menus aren’t off the charts like a Big Blind Media project, but it’s all nicely done. All you learn on the DVD is this effect, nothing more. There are... [Read More]

I like effects like this and was really looking forward to this version. I was not disappointed!

This DVD is a bare bones live performance and explanation video, but it does not leave you wondering how this and that is done.

It opens with a performance with some dreaded puns in it here and there and the explanations follow.

John first goes over everything you need first, giving you a chance to gather everything together if you wish to follow along. He shows every step of the set-up process and also gives you hints and tips about why some of the things should be done a certain way. He does not leave anything out so you will not be left scratching your head about any of it afterward. It is clear that he has worked this and knows the effect inside and out.

That is pretty much it. The set-up for each performance should take you no more than a few minutes and though not all of the parts can be prepped too far in advance, there are some that can be which will make it easier or... [Read More]

Hey world, this is a good effect, but the ad is not 100% accurate. You also can't really do the trick after watching it.


It is his take on the classic orange, egg, canary trick. The set up is simple once you figure it out and wont take less than 10 min.


It says he goes over every tip, well, he doesn't. He rushes some things that are important like ( without going into to much detail) seals and cuts. If I didn't have a buddy whose done this for years, I would of been lost.


The dvd is great, but it doesn't come with any gimmicks, but they are things any magician should definitely have. He has a live performance which was great and he gives all the necessary credit.


If you know someone who has experience with it, or you would like to expirement a lot, it is great.
I PERSONALLY thought it was OK .
