Introducing the Percussion Plus Honestly Made Gourd guiro and shaker
Fashioned from a hollowed-out gourd, this large guiro creates a rich and powerful tone when scraped along its ridges. The large interior of the gourd acts as a resonating chamber, allowing the sound to project much further than a stand guiro scraper.
To play, use the turned wooden stick provided to scrape along the ridges on top of the gourd. Speed up and slow down your movements to vary tone your tone and intensity of sound. There are also beads inside the gourd to further layer your percussive tone.
This guiro and shaker is sourced using Fair trade principles. See below for more information about the Honestly Made range of musical instruments from Percussion Plus.
These items are musical instruments not toys and there may be small parts on or in some of them. Younger players should use them under supervision.
