For anyone interested in voice acting, you’ll need to pay extra attention to your daily vocal care routine. You want to be prepared for when your voice gets strained and take note of any symptoms. And when that happens, you’ll need an important tool to help ease the strain on your voice. But what if you could do that and add that extra ‘oomph’ to your vocal warmups?
This is where a Singing/Straw comes in handy.
Now you might be wondering, “What is a singing straw and how does it work?”
I first heard about them when I bought a competitor’s product in early 2021… and then lost it on my move back to Los Angeles. Sigh.
Enter the Singing/Straw. I believe it was a targeted ad on social media that got me. It looked pretty comparable to what I got last time, so I thought I’d give it a try. I had a big recording session in Washington, DC and brought it with me. Unloaded my stuff after arrival in the hotel room, came back, and it was gone. Pretty sure it was stolen. And it was still in the packaging. Double sigh.
I got an email from the folks at Singing/Straw asking me how I enjoyed my purchase and I told them I wish I could’ve given a testimonial but it was gone, and I would buy another. You know what they did? They sent me another one for free. Out of the kindness of their hearts. How amazing, right?
You know what they say, the third time’s the charm, right?
So I got my new one and oh WOW, what a difference it makes! I do a lot of vocally taxing work and even after long sessions, my voice is less tired when I use the Singing Straw versus when I don’t.
When they asked if I wanted to be an affiliate, I jumped at the chance.
So all that is great but what exactly is a singing straw? A singing straw is just that – it’s an eco-friendly singing straw that helps you warm your vocals up. Not just for voice acting, but also for speaking and for singing as well. It can also build flexibility and stamina, reinforce a healthy resonance, reduce unnecessary strain and tension, and heal your voice for when you’re tired or sick. The best part about it is that it was designed based on the latest in voice science.
I personally use this tool every day, since my voice is my biggest asset and I want to help take care of it as much as I can. And in true VO Superhero style, I think it also gives my vocal range a good powerup whenever I need it.
