This is the most like a wood or gourd guiro you are going to get. I think they actually have a unique sound of their own, though, and I like it. Neither as hard-sounding as a metal guiro or as uneven as some hand-made guiros can sound, these sit nicely in the mix. They can be played hard or soft. The sound can be varied with different sticks (two provided), and you can also provide some variation by manipulating the thumb holes in the back.

Indestructible is good! Drop it, kick it, toss it across the room or into a band equipment box. Nothing hurts it! I'm not advocating abusing it, but it's good to know it can take it!

It is loud! It cuts through the mix in a loud combo. This guiro will not crack or break when dropped or crammed into a case/gig bag... Sounds like plastic, not like a gourd, but the sound is not a bad sound, just different. Recommended.

I bought this when I was recording an album and needed a Guiro for one of the songs. It's very large and well made. The only critique I have with this Guiro is that, being made of synthetics/plastics, it's a little on the bright sounding side, especially with the plastic scrapers that come with the Guiro. In my case I was in a studio and the engineer was able to make it sound like I wanted to achieve. I think I am going to get or make a wooden scraper and see if that sounds better in case I decide to use this in a live situation.

This is a good guiro but it will never sound like one made from a dried out "guira" fruit (gourd). The soft white stick that comes with it sounds nice and smooth because it is lubricious (ie, it slides well) and the diameter is lareg enough to keep it from sinking too far into each and every groove on the guiro. If you know how to play this instrument, you will definitely get a smooth "crrrrrrrrrrrh" sound from it. Execellent for in-door / stage performances. Not loud enough for outdoor (unless you play it next to a mic, of course).
Great buy, but needs a trained hand to sound its best.

Disclaimer: I don't know anything about the traditions of this insturment, but I've played them and I know what sounds good to me. Although large and well made, this guiro sounded dull and too quiet in comparison to the kids' wood guiro sold for $5 to $9. The problem is not the plastic, but the design: You hold the resonant part in your fingers and that dampens the sound. It would sound a lot better with a solid handle at one end and the other completely open, with slits down most of the length.
