Description
 

Two sounds, one instrument. Part guiro, part shaker, this versatile handheld percussion instrument is all about great accenting. Ours is made from genuine bamboo for increased durability and offers you two ways to play for double the sound effects.

The guiro itself is an untuned instrument thatís played by repeatedly scraping or tapping its evenly spaced, notched sides with the included wooden scraper to produce a steady, ratchet-like sound. Varying the duration, length and speed of your stroke influences the desired sound effect. For a musical change of pace, you can also put away the scraper, hold the guiro in one hand and shake it gently for softer accents or more vigorously for louder, more impactful beats.

Once you learn the basics of the guiro, incorporate its unique sound into the style of music you like best. Whether you play the guiro with the wooden scraper or shake it, youíll appreciate its ease of play and the variety of cool sound effects it creates.

Bamboo guiro November 25, 2012
Reviewer: Monica Fisher from Ringle, WI United States  
This instrument sounds exactly like I expected. It is much more attractive than I could tell from the picture and video. I received this product with in days of ordering.  I did, however, break the scraper stick jamming the 1st day I had it. Guess I got carried away.
