Vocal coaches and pros use the semi-occluded vocal tract (SOVT) straw technique to warm up and train their voice. In a single day, a singer/speaker can go through dozens of plastic straws which are devastating to our oceans. The OOVO Straw™ is a patent pending vocal tool made with sterling silver—no plastic, chemicals, or synthetic materials. Find out how it works.
Backed by the world’s best vocal coaches and scientific studies, semi-occluded vocal tract training is proven to result in a more powerful, healthy voice. Read more from the experts on how the SOVT technique improves vocal strength and longevity for both singers and speakers.
Vocal Pros Love It
I can’t recommend the OOVO straw enough. I love to wear it. I’m constantly getting compliments on it as an accessory, but perhaps even more importantly, it’s my favorite warmup device I’ve ever used.Jim Hogan, NY, Touring Broadway Actor
My problem was trying to keep a straw around. I have straws at my piano, but they are plastic and are constantly being thrown out, which is not good for the planet we are riding on. Away from the piano? I would keep them in my pocket, but the straws would get bent, or I would forget them. The OOVO Straw is not only convenient to have on me at all times; it is far more hygienic. They gave me a free OOVO to try in exchange for my opinion. However, after using it for just a day, I purchased another to give as a gift. I love it that much. johnhenny.comJohn Henny, Vocal Coach, John Henny Music Academy
I’m a big fan of the straw as a tool for vocalists and I’m now slightly obsessed with the OOVO Straw. It is brilliant for vocal warm-ups, cool-downs, and general vocal health, not to mention it’s a really cool necklace! It’s like hitting a little “reset” button for your voice. lauradonohuevoice.comLaura Donohue, Nashville, TN, Singer/Songwriter & Vocal Coach
I’m an opera singer and I already started using my OOVO Straw. It is fabulous. The fact that it’s a necklace is just perfect since I can never find a straw in a hotel room. It’s pretty rad and I feel better knowing that I’m not using any more plastic straws for my warm-ups! Thank you @oovostraw!Justin Fatu Su’esu’e, LA, Opera Singer
