This is one of the driving rhythmic forces in a Merengue band. Made from durable stainless steel, this large guiro features a hollow, open-ended design with a tightly textured surface that gives a raspy sound with bright overtones. It is significantly louder, coarser, rougher sound than the large LP Torpedo Guiro. An attached metal handle makes it easy to hold in any position. Also included is the LP333 Pro Guiro Scraper.
