I recently had the opportunity to attend a séance where a trumpet was present in the room. (No, it didn't come into use that night). The hostess of the event remarked that it was used to amplify spirit sounds.

Afterwards, I told her that I was under the impression that trumpets were used as objects to be levitated, rather than as amplifiers. She told me that they are used for both purposes.

Have you ever known of a trumpet being used for amplification of spirit sounds at a séance?

Yes Jim the idea is to hope that Spirit will speak through them. The levitation bit came more as part of the party tricks of Physical mediums. We have a seance trumpet but I think teh dedication needed to get it working properly is beyond teh attention spam of todays instant happenings. I can now consistently get, in good light, tables moving (and how) with messages from Spirit, some writing from teh planchette, inconsistent results from th Spirit Talking Board, a form of transfiguration (better sometimes than other. In teh Christmas Tree seance we have had toys moving, balls rolling and some perceived contact with little fingers, even a few raps. BUT that seance trumpet won't speak or move.

That all sounds impressive to me, Jim! Shocked

And I'm delighted to learn more about the varied uses of the trumpet. I know very little about physical mediumship.

Sadly the more I know and teh deeper I delve into history the less impressed I am with physical mediumship.

Just as a piece of information mental mediumship extends right out to deep trance (it would include Spirit Art; Lis is quite adept at both art and deep trance when we can get her to do it) and the cross over to physical mediumship is at the point of transfiguration; which used to be perceived as an ectoplasmic mask in front of the face, however for my transfiguration it is an energetic face not ectoplasmic.

Interestingly Direct Voice hangs somewhere in the middle being closely aligned to trance. Its important to realise that around the turn of the 19th C into the 20th C most mediums gave ther messages in trance and often the guide would give the messages from loved one's, just like a modern mental medium,  while the medium was in full trance e'g Gladys Osborne Leonard's Feda (indeed one of our founders was a medium who worked in trance both for the talks and messages never saw her but a close friend of 56 years did when he first joined our centre). Not all direct voice mediumship did require a seance trumpet

So Physical is raps,  talking boards and planchettes, tables, transfiguraion trumpets, slates and materialisation. Hmm the more I learn the more I feel that true materialisation was almost as reare as hens teeth.
