LP452 Multi Giro
One surface of this multi-faceted instrument features large, raised grooves, similar to the Cuban giro, while the other has a finer texture. With the unique fill cap, you can modify the amount of fill material to change the shaker sound. As a shaker or giro , the LP Multi Giro produces bright, projecting sounds in any musical situation. LP Torpedo Scraper included.

Comments about LP452 Multi Guiro:
I'm crazy about all the different sounds you can get, depending on what type of scraper and guiro surface is chosen. I'd definitely recommend a multi scraper (metal bar) in addition to the torpedo style scraper.
This is easily the most versatile weapon in my arsenal of percussion. The deep grooves have a clackety sound, and the finer raspy side is great for anything from Cajun to Latin to jazz & blues, and most points in between. The shaker function can be a little heavy (when all the filling is used) if played throughout a long song, but I still use it a lot, especially when I need to cut thru loud electric instruments.
A very well-made, solid instrument, that never seems to wear out. Been playing one for about 15 years that barely shows signs of wear. The tines in the torpedo scraper DO eventually start coming out, but this can be mended or the scraper replaced without too much cost.
Can take the place of several instruments when space or cost is an issue.
