Når jeg skal bruge ekstra percussin på mine indspilninger bruger jeg ofte denne guiro. Den lyder godt på et separat spor med en smule rumklang på. Den er flot med sine mange farver og pynter på væggen i mit hjemmestudio. Kraftig kvalitet og sjovt design.
I bought this from the sound samples on the thomann website. My other guiro wasn't cutting it live- I wanted something louder and with more tone. I didn't however want to go for a plastic one, needed it to be 'woody'. I am really happy with this. I thought from the pictures that it looked a bit like it could end up being a 'school' instrument, especially as it wasn't very expensive. However, it has proved to be great- exactly what I was looking for.
The scraper attached is quite small, but the two sides do give you two distinct tones. It has a good balance between tone and volume, and works unmiked up at gigs. I have not played much on a really expensive guiroi, but to be honest I can't imagine bothering to spend more, as this makes exactly the sound I was wanting, and it looks like it will last well too.
