Does anyone have any suggestions for muting the sound of switching/lapping a deck of cards? I sometimes find the sound of the deck falling those 6-8 inches into the lap to be louder than others and would like to eliminate it as much as possible. Thanks

Thanks, Harry! I'll check it out. I usually do us talking as an audio cover, but every once in a while the deck lands flat which crates a louder sound than usual. Would you suggest that I just talk louder?

  Yes - at that instant.  Are you sure it's making a sound that your spectators would hear?  Seems strange, since usually lapping a deck makes a very slight sound (unless you're using a particularly heavy deck!!!

Harry is right - a deck of cards falling into your lap won't make a noise.

Of course the master of Lapping was Slydini and he would lap a number of coins. In his trick "Encore Coins" on page 43 of "The Magical World Of Slydini" he has the left hand lapping the coins and the nose is covered "by the noise of the right hand's coins hitting the table".

I have never lapped a card, but if you have $150 to part with some of the great Spanish masters like Tamariz and DaOrtiz (I think Aragon was in it too) released a video called "LAP" that was something like 90 minutes of lapping techniques and tricks you can do using the techniques taught.
