LP Super Guiro (LP243) - Product Information

The LP Super Guiro was designed to eliminate the durability issues inherent with the natural version of this instrument. It is precision-molded from high-strength plastic and is designed to have the shape, feel, and sound quality of the natural gourd version.

Special attention has been paid to the location of the rubber-lined finger holes to provide maximum comfort and control. It comes with two scrapers, a plastic model for bright loud sound and a wood model for warm dry sound. It can be mounted on a drum or percussion table using the LP Mic Claw (LP529A-N).

good for louder volumes

Comments:

The sound of this when using included scraper is poor. Try something like Vic Firth Dreadlocks though and you get a really cool sound. This is good for marching bands, or other areas where the sound needs to cut. It's also good if you travel a lot as a lot of the wooden and gourd versions are fragile.

Effective and Tough Guiro

Comments:

This product has several advantages over the traditional carved gourd guiro: it can be much louder if desired, it is more durable, and it can be mounted on an LP mic claw to enable one-handed playing or quick changes between instruments. It comes with two scrapers that provide different sounds and volume levels.

Great for a variety of different needs

Comments:

I have now had the chance to use this guiro on a couple of gigs and in the recording studio and it sounds great for the price. For the music I play, this guiro has the power I need to make sure the audience can hear it.
