This guiro is a stainless steel construction and can be played by scraping the serrated edges with the supplied scraper. The versatile guiro is also a shaker, filled with little beads, making it two instruments in one.
It has a stainless steel handle for easy grip and comes complete with a multi pronged scraper. The instrument itself is compact, at 38cm (15″) long, and is very durable so it is perfect for use in classrooms and percussion groups.
The guiro is a Latin-American instrument often heard in Samba and Bossa-Nova.
