The Guiro [Gwiro] is hand held percussive instrument that is as popular in the classroom as it is in Latin-American music. the sound is created by the vibrations the player makes when dragging the beater over the ridges of the instrument. Being so easy to use it’s a popular choice in both primary and secondary schools.

The A-Star selection of percussion is known for its pleasant sound an robust build. With a variety of sizes there is something suitable for every age range.
