Excellent !

I am aware that a lot of percussionists prefer the plastic guiros because of their durability. I cannot speak of durability at this early stage however i can say that the sound of this guiro is excellent imo. It has good presence and is versatile in that it can be used in a surprisingly wide range of ways to create many different sounds.
The wood gives a nice mellowness to that characteristic guiro sharpness.
On the back there are 2 holes used for holding the instrument - but i also like to hold the guiro by the far end with the other end supported by my solar plexus in order to manipulate the holes so that it creates a wah wah effect. The main section is hollowed out and the ends are solid - which can be tapped to create a different sound. If you turn the beater around to use the thinner end you get a higher pitched sound. You can get a lot out of this and it is a pleasure to play, the fact that it is wooden is a bonus for me. It is very good value .

One other point is that the description states the beater is plastic but mine came with a wooden beater - which i prefer.

Wow !

I wanted to save and buy a smaller one, but I though every time I'll record, I'll record a small / cheap sound. So I went for the big ting! I don't regret it, this thing sounds like wow!

Macht soundtechnisch was es soll und ist dabei je nach Anschlag klanglich sehr variabel.

Ce Guiro de Meinl est un produit solide… avec une belle finition en bois, une bonne prise en main, et un son sublime. Sa petite baguette est d'excellente facture et elle permet de bien varier le son. L'ensemble est de haute qualité. J'espère que cela durera de nombreuses années, voir décennies. Ça en vaut le prix.
