Expand-a-Lung

Breathing Resistance Exerciser

The "EXPAND-A-LUNG" inspiratory / expiratory breathing resistance exerciser is a breakthrough product for respiratory training. Research supports that this type of exercise significantly improves the strength of respiratory muscles, and increases the volume of lung oxygen ventilation. The end result is deeper, easier and better breathing for superior performance. It is a fact that breathing resistance exercise will develop stronger lungs, and this in turn can provide an endurance advantage for any sport - including singing.

Vocal Coach Rating

Overall Impression:

Great training device to strengthen the lungs and breathing cycle. It could use a redesign with custom molded components but the way it is now, keeps the cost down and it works just as well.

PROS:
Easy to use, easy to clean. Simple design.

CONS:
The resistance dial needs to have some kind of markings to chart progress.

The Beltbox

Portable Warm Up Dampener

BELTBOX is the first portable vocal dampener for singers. You simply put it over your mouth to quiet your warm-up sounds to avoid disturbing others.

Let's see if I can use this in various situations without disturbing others in an obvious way.

Vocal Coach Rating

Overall Impression:

Inventive design and small shape make it a cool addition to a gig bag.

PROS:
Small size makes it easy to take to rehearsals, auditions and anywhere you need to warm up or vocalize.

CONS:
It gets messy easy and kind of hot from your own breath but that's a minimal problem if you clean it regularly.
