First paragraph:

It is a common misconception that the terms guiro and reco-reco are interchangeable and that effectively they mean the same thing. However, such is not the case. The reco-reco is a scraper of Brazilian origins and is traditionally made of a very hard variety of bamboo called Taquara. Other instruments of lesser quality are made of ordinary domestic furniture quality bamboo which is softer and far more prone to moisture problems and cracking. Taquara is much harder and denser than normal bamboo and gives and instrument of strength and good sound quality.
