This ‘Guiro Shaker – Large – 30cm’ is a fantastic instrument. A large Guiro which is also filled with small beads so adds an extra rustle to the sound, as well as having the option to double up as a Shaker or Ganza.

The scraping Guiro sound is bright and loud, and the overall design is very durable and popular with schools and professional percussionists alike.

Product Information

How to Play

There are several ways to play this this instrument; as a Shaker, hold in one or both hands and rock back and forth; as a Scraper take the stick in one hand, the Guiro in the other and run the stick up and down the ridges on the Guiro; as a Wood Block take the stick in one hand, the Guiro in the other and hit the stick against the Guiro. Once you’ve got the hang of making these different sounds, try combining them in different ways. It is a wonderfully versatile instrument.

Returns

Please let us know straight away if anything arrives damaged or otherwise in a substandard condition and we’ll be happy to replace it, refund the cost or provide you with an alternative product to your satisfaction.

The large bamboo has a great tone to accompany any percussion playing and the slice in the wood gives more than one sound. When I ordered the large guiro shaker it somehow escaped me that it doubled as a shaker. So when it arrived I found by accident that it is also a shaker as well as being a rather musical guiro. Result! I have a great collection of scraper frogs and other animals and what is neat about these frogs is that the tone is so different from the others, which makes it my go to frog. Cheers.
