Let’s see what Maxi Nil has to say about Vocalzone!
“Those WONDER pastilles have been part of my everyday life for 4 years now. Vocalzone has helped me pull through 40-45 day tours with just 1- 2 days off. I could feel my throat and voice so open and clear like never before! As a touring musician and vocal coach I strongly recommend Vocalzone for everyone using their voice a lot on an everyday basis. I love those pastilles,because THEY WORK!”
