Introducing the Percussion Plus Honestly Made Balinese guiro with scraper

This guiro with scraper from Percussion Plus is carved from a thick slice of bamboo for a rustic look and satisfying, rich percussive tone. To play, rub the scraper up and down the guiro, varying speed and pressure to achieve different sounds.

The guiro is decorated with a simple burnt etching technique and finished with colourful dot painting, all done by hand. The guiro scraper is attached via string for convenience whilst playing. It is a fun and easy to play instrument with a great sound and is the ideal addition to classroom percussion sets or a folk percussionist’s collection.

The Honestly Made Percussion Plus guiro with scraper has been 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.

Using sustainable materials

The guiros and scrapers are hand-made in Bali using fast growing bamboo. This means the bamboo does not affect the level or growth of nearby hardwood forests, making the production more environmentally friendly. They are then carved and painted by independent makers, also in Bali.


Percussion Plus Honestly Made products are manufactured in independent family workshops that are too small to join Fair Trade groups or are located in countries that do not have such organisations. These suppliers and their subsidiaries all follow Fair trade principles which include:

  • Agreeing a fair price Use of recycled materials
  • Paying significant amounts upfront
  • Being loyal and reasonable in all dealings
  • Prioritising smaller suppliers over large factories
  • Manufacturing methods that do not damage the environment
