The Singing / Straw PRO is actually helping my tired and overused voice to gradually sound much smoother, with a better vocal range including less effort and strain plus the ability to get through a 3 or 4 hour gig with very little if any gravel (the Andy Devine effect) in my voice! I use it for 5 to 10 minutes on the way to my performances and for 5 minutes or so afterwards as a cool down.
Along with the Singing / Straw PRO warmups and cool downs I'm drinking more water, getting additional sleep and cutting way down on phone conversations. I used to speak with one of my besties for an hour or more every night, now I try to limit those calls to no more than 5 or 10 minutes.
I was diagnosed with a vocal polyp in 2015 at UCLA but, was NOT comfortable with having a surgical procedure.
I thought that the Singing / Straw PRO might be a gimmick but, I decided that it was well worth trying. Wow, I am so glad that I did. I've only had it for a couple of weeks and yet I've made more progress vocally than at any time in the last 7 years!
An Appreciative & Enthusiastic Thank You goes out to Whitney & the Singing / Straw Team!
