PS/PK students love them!
As a preschool music teacher, I am constantly stretching my budget to give the best quality experience. After purchasing a few crow sounders last year, I have come back to fill out my basket so that all the class can have one at the same time. They love the versatility of the sounds they can make with this guiro. These instruments have been sturdy enough for my 2 1/2 - 5 year old students to use respectfully. However, I would not recommend them for toddler classes as they might easily crack if thrown or stepped on. But for my purposes, great instrument at a great value.
Check for flaws
The one I received was defective as the side slits were cut wrong. West was quick to respond and send out a replacement (which was appreciated!).
Guiro Crow Sounder
Very nice Guiro and rich wood block sound. The handles make it easy for young players to hold and play. For the money, this is a sturdy and versitile classroom instrument.
