Type: Vocal Monitor (Acoustic)
Item: VAM™ Vocal Acoustic Monitor
US $12.99 – $29.99
At a Glance: If you can’t ensure proper monitoring by using floor wedges and you don’t have an in-ear monitor, you could get a vocal acoustic monitor. The VAM™ is basically a piece of plastic designed to cup your ear and mouth in order to cut out distracting background noises. If you can hear your own voice, you stand a much better chance of staying both in time and in tune with the rest of your band.
High Notes: The Vocal Acoustic Monitor will accommodate almost any microphone, handheld or on a stand. Plus, it leaves your hands free for other things. Having no electrical parts, it won’t generate feedback.
Off Pitch: Great for practice sessions, in a studio setting or for private vocal training but in a live situation would any serious singer really choose a VAM over a good sound engineer and decent on-stage monitoring?
A Singer Says: “This product is solid and uniquely shaped to reach from the ear all the way to the mouth. I could not believe the difference in sound. Let me tell you, these things are amazing and will be as common as the microphone clip” Jamie Vendera Vocal Coach
