Message: Posted by: Adrian Deery (Aug 6, 2016 09:59AM)
Halloween merchandise is starting to appear in the stores and the haunting season will soon be upon us. I wanted to let everyone know I have made a few spirit bells and these will go very fast. If you are interested PM me I am enclosing a video link of the bells here CLICK ON THIS LINK OR COPY AND PASTE THIS LINK TO VIEW A VIDEO OF THE SPIRIT BELL https://vimeo.com/139260095 These bells are receiving rave reviews from performers on here. The cost is $75 which includes free shipping to anywhere in the US overseas buyers PM me. You can read the reviews by other performers here in the threads. Act now these go very fast.

Thanks again

Adrian Deery

I've said it before and I'll say it again, there is not a better way to spend $75 than to get your hands on one of these. They look and sound beautiful. But always remember, less is more. These are so cool you just want to go ping ping ping ping, but please don't (in front of an audience, it's fine to do it alone, and don't worry, there are plenty of pings in each bell).

Are these the ones invented by Michael Fraughton and published in his book the Dark Waltz?

Certainly not invented by, but yes, mentioned there and other places.

Adrian Deery’s Spirit Bells are powerful and delightful - and you really cant go wrong with a classic! If you see him advertising them - grab them while they are hot as they are limited.

To clarify, the Fraughton Spirit Bell was not invented by Michael Fraughton, rather his version modified the old classic in one special way to make it more reliable and predictable in its control and handling.

The real trick is to remember that less is more - in small doses the effect is startling and compelling - in large doses it becomes just another trick.

Occasionally I will have a spirit bell made from an antique bell or wine glass available as well based on the ones I made while producing Fraughton’s show.

Hope that clarifies any confusion.

Thus is a really old principle, but the simplicity of the rod and the elegance of the crystal bell make it very special

Adrians asking price is extremely fair. A lovely prop and a powerful effect.
