Description

Spring Guiro for Hire
This instrument has a truly unique sound.  It is quite far away from the sound of a traditional guiro, but played in the same way, with harsh metallic overtones.  The metal chamber enhances overtones, dark trashy sounds can be achieved by striking.  Roughly 4ft in height. This instrument was constructed specifically for 'Panic' the work by Sir Harrison Birtwistle that opened the 2007 BBC Proms Season.
