Cavaquinho Brasileiro cedar with solid cedar top and solid walnut sides and back - made in Portugal

Brazilian cavaquinho, handmade in Portugal by Artimúsica. Ideal for traditional samba in the typical tuning D-G-H-D (low to high). The cavaquinho has beautiful sound and construction qualities with a tropical temperament that will have you raving.

Play beautiful Sambas and Choros with this cavaquinho, the full, guitar-like sound is very typical for Artimusica cavacos.

The top is made of solid cedar wood, the back and sides are made of solid walnut. The neck is solid mahogany and the fingerboard is crafted of dark wenge wood that may show partially black grain that can withstand intensive and prolonged use. A traditional cavaquinho for superb performances in an unusually favourable price segment for a solid wood instrument.

The design utilises the natural contrasts of the woods and gives the cavaco a natural and organic character. The sound hole is decorated with a subtle motif and the body has a frame line that emphasises the shape of the instrument. Beautiful finish! The pegs are nickel-plated.

The electric version has an active built-in active pick-up.

Made in Portugal! In 1992, ARTIMÚSICA Instrumentos Musicais, Lda. was officially established with based on the idea to manufacture traditional Portuguese chordophones.
The main Luthiers Manuel Carvalho and José Carvalho learned this wonderful and traditional craft from their grandfather, a master in this skill, Joaquim José Machado, who until today remains a reference in the history of the Portuguese chordophones. The methods of the craft are more than a 100 years old and can be considered the secret behind the quality of Artimúsica's instrument and as a brand. The craftsmanship of their luthiers work is well known not only in Portugal but also internationally.

The name Artimúsica represents the company's heart: using their knowledge to make great quality instruments, treat them like a piece of art at an affordable price. Artimúsica take pride in their flagship instrument, the Portuguese Guitar, the main instrument played in the FADO music (UNESCO’s list of World´s Intangible Cultural Heritage). With their impeccable cavaquinhos and their outstanding sound qualities we are happy to add this European luthier to our range of selected cavaquinho manufacturers, knowing that the Samba scene will appreciate the art of the craft.
