LATIN PERCUSSION® COMBINES MERENGUE AND SALSA SOUNDS WITH GUIRA COWBELLS

 

Specially-engineered surface allows for use as both cowbell and guira

 

GARFIELD, N.J. (September 11, 2013) — Latin Percussion (LP) introduces a new addition to its line of premium, U.S.-made cowbells with two new guira cowbells. Handmade from quality stainless steel, the guira cowbell is designed with a textured surface that allows the cowbell to also serve as a guira. The LP guira cowbell is available in hand-held (LP225H) and mountable (LP225) models. A scraper is included with each hand-held model.

The LP guira cowbell (MSRP: $79.99 for LP225 mounted version, $75.99 for LP225H hand-held version) is now available at Authorized Latin Percussion Retailers.

“The new LP guira cowbells are the first of their kind and are made with U.S. stainless steel, which gives the cowbells a medium, dry tone,” said Victor Filonovich, director of product for Latin Percussion. “We worked directly with meringue, salsa and pop music artists to dial-in the correct sounds for both the guira and the cowbell.”
