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 lets the cowbell also serve as a guira.

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