Product Details

Wooden Grasshopper Musical Instrument
by Universal Specialties

Adapted from an instrument thought to have originated in South America or Africa, the güiro is typically a notched, hollowed-out gourd. The notches are made in parallel, circular stripes along the the short section of the gourd.

This version has been shaped to look like a grasshopper, rather than the traditional gourd. It features a series of ridges along the sides of its belly, which decrease in size as you go towards the head or the back of the body. The belly has been hollowed out, and can be covered or uncovered to alter the tone of the sound that is emitted as the percussion and rubbing rod is used on the grasshopper.

The grasshopper measures approximately 5" in length, and is painted a dark green and brown.
