The LP Super Guiro was designed to eliminate the durability issues inherent with the natural version of this instrument. It is precision-molded from high-strength plastic and is designed to have the shape, feel, and sound quality of the natural gourd version.

Special attention has been paid to the location of the rubber-lined finger holes to provide maximum comfort and control. It comes with two scrapers, a plastic model for bright loud sound and a wood model for warm dry sound.

Things You Will Get:

  • Super Guiro
  • 2 Scrapers

Maybe not super, but good enough


I have the Super Guiro mounted on a tumbadora using the LP Mic Claw. While it doesn't sound as wonderful as a gourd guiro, it sounds good enough in a mix - and makes up for the difference in durability and mount-ability (a gourd mounted this way would quickly fracture).

Not quite Super, but good enough


Being plastic, it is obviously durable. And while it sounds good enough, it does not sound as good as a gourd. You have to consider both attributes, and determine what suits you and your situation. I have it mounted on a conga using the LP Mic Claw, so obviously the gourd is a no-go. It would fracture in no time. So the plastic Super Guiro is a great choice in my scenario.



Heavy duty. Great sound.


It has a nice sound and good material. Heavy duty. I recommend it.



Good guiro for large ensmebles


This is a great guiro for playing in large ensembles. It cuts well and because it is plastic, it will last long. As far as authenticity, it's plastic... so what do you expect?
