Beautifully crafted active-electric cavaquinho LUTHIER made of solid wood and open-pore finish, with case - APC

APC's top model LUTHIER electric cavaquinho has all key elements made of solid wood and brings a rich and abundant sound to every Samba. The small Samba ukulele is beautifully crafted with dark Pau Santo on the back and the contrast of the light-coloured solid spruce top. Selected tone woods enhance their strong, guitar-like sound spectrum with soft lows and penetrating, thriving highs. This little companion immediately helps raise the sound of your Samba de Enredo to a completely different level. Visually striking: the open-pore finish, a thin layer of clear coating exposes the natural pores of the different tone woods and emphasizes the natural wood texture. The finish preserves the natural acoustic properties of tonewoods in a similar way to oils, but offers much better protection and has a simple yet noble appearance.

Electrically amplified cavaquinhos can of course also be played acoustically but are especially suitable if you play in groups that consist mainly of percussion. Excellent sound qualities go particularly well with singing, whether in a Samba school with a large bateria or other musical styles. If you are looking for a high-quality cavaco with amplification option, this model could be just the right one to love for many years to come and with excellent sound qualities.

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 a semi-softcase with backpack straps for padded transport protection, carry handle and separate plec compartment.

Nearly half a century of luthier tradition have gone into this small, very precisely crafted Portuguese cavaquinho. APC is specialised in Portuguese string instruments, their focus is on quality and good sound. It isn't half bad looking, either! Soft, warm, local woods and the luthiers experience of a family business have created a series of instruments that are really impressive, beautiful and with gorgeous sound qualities.

"APC"

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.
