As a vocalist, you always have your instrument with you. And now you can keep your most important tool close as well. The OOVO Straw™ is a patent pending vocal tool designed in Los Angeles and individually handcrafted for the precise resistance you need for healthy vocal exercise. This environmentally-friendly vocal straw is engineered at the perfect size, shape, and material for daily use. Built as a pendant and attached to the included necklace, it will always be there when you need it.

For optimal strength training, expert researchers and vocal coaches recommend that you use the OOVO Straw in 5-minute increments, 5 times per day. Here are a few exercises created by The Naked Vocalist to get you started. The goal is to promote muscle memory and reinforce positive habits—strengthening your vocal cords while minimizing impact.

Material Matters

Vocal coaches, professional singers and speakers, and vocal health professionals 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. Americans alone use 500 million plastic straws each day. For vocalists who use straws in their daily routine, there’s a better way.

The OOVO Straw™ is a patent pending, wearable vocal tool made with 100% precious metals—no plastic, chemicals, or synthetic materials. It helps vocalists find their best voice without damaging our oceans.

Vocal Strength & Benefits

Airflow equalization. Enhanced resonance ability. Reduction of concussive vocal cord impacts. Using the OOVO Straw equalizes the pressure on your vocal folds and enables your vocal cords to vibrate easily. It helps you achieve the healthiest vocalization by balancing the pressure in your vocal tract.

For singers and speakers, research has demonstrated Semi-Occluded Vocal Tract (SOVT) training to be the most effective vocal training for those whose voice is their life and livelihood. To see how it works, check out these videos by our friends and vocal coaches John Henny (check out his free online course); Leigh McReigh (a great video focusing on vocal recovery); and the inventor of the exercise Dr. Ingo Titze.
