Beautifully crafted, acoustic cavaquinho LUTHIER made of solid woods with open-pore finish, includes a case - APC

The acoustic cavaquinho top model from APC made of solid woods brings a special richness to the sound of every Samba. The small Samba ukuleles are beautifully crafted with dark Pau Santo back and the contrast of the light solid spruce top. Selected woods for a strong, guitar-like sound with soft lows and penetrating, singing highs. This little companion immediately raises your Samba to a different level.
Visually striking: the open-pore finish, a thin layer of lacquer that leaves the deep natural pores of special tone woods exposed and emphasizes the grain of the wood. The finish preserves the natural acoustic properties of tonewoods in a similar way to oils, but offers much better protection and looks very noble in a natural way.

Acoustic Cavaquinhos are particularly suitable if you play in small groups that are not predominantly made up of percussion. Excellent sound qualities go particularly well with singing and small sessions or even with more refined music styles. If you are looking for an affordable top quality cavaco without amplification to love and honour for many years to come and with excellent sound qualities, this model could 'the one'.
High-quality, well thought-out design, good mechanics, stylish finish and brilliant sounds that are particularly rich in resonance due to the solid woods.
The cavaquinho comes with semi-softcase, soft padded transport protection with backpack straps, handle and separate plectrum compartment.

Nearly half a century of luthier tradition have gone into this small, high-quality cavaquinho made in Portugal. APC specialises in Portuguese stringed instruments, their focus is on high standards and excellent sound. But this model has absolutely nothing to hide. Soft, warm, local woods and the luthiering experience of a family business have resulted in a series of instruments that can really be seen and heard.

Handmade quality cavaquinhos from Portugal, beautifully finished and made in Europe

Born in 1951, António Pinto Carvalho, founder of APC Instrumentos Musicais, opened his company in 1976 with the aim of producing high quality stringed instruments.

Already at the tender age of 10, António Pinto Carvalho began to learn the art he still devotes himself to today. Guided and inspired by his grandfather, he built the first cavaquinhos and guitars. Today he is one of the most famous guitar makers in Portugal, the company is still in the hands of his family.

With around 50 employees, APC is the largest national company in this field and produces and sells a wide range of instruments worldwide. Despite its traditional background, the company invests in the latest technology and strives for the greatest possible accuracy and precision in the manufacturing of string instruments. However, the irreplaceable work of a luthier remains important, turning every instrument into a unique piece and defining its beauty and sound. The symbiosis between 19th century craftsmanship and today's technology is the key to the quality and authenticity of every APC instrument.

APC Instrumentos Musicais stands for Portugal's reputation for string instrument making, a country as rich in chords and sound scapes as the string instruments themselves. Genuine Portuguese culture and tradition.
