Antonio Carvalho CS Concert Ukulele

Antonio Carvalho CS Concert Ukulele. Antonio Carvalho also known as APC ukuleles are made in Portugal, the birthplace of the ukulele's ancestor the Braguinha. Along with an impressive range of other Portuguese instruments like the ukulele's relatives, the steel strung Braguinha and the Cavaquinho, Antonio Carvalho produce quality instruments that have a sense of tradition about them.

They are made from Portuguese Koa, and the figuration of some of the woods used is often stunningly beautiful. With a very handmade and organic quality, every instrument has its own individual personality which is pretty much unheard of in this price range. The basic soprano model boasts outstanding value for money. It's a solid Koa ukulele that feels and plays like a high-end hand-crafted instrument. What's more, it's made in Europe and cheaper than a lot of similar quality Chinese manufactured instruments.

The concert model has a beautifully figured solid Koa top, back & sides, a decorative sound hole rosette, African Blackwood fingerboard & bridge, 18 frets and open-geared machine heads, and comes complete with Aquila Nylgut strings. If you're looking for a step-up from an entry-level ukulele, and something with a bit of character, then the Antonio Carvalho fits the bill. For an even richer tone and a more refined finish with book-matched top and back and maple binding, it's well worth taking a look at the deluxe model.

The bottom line: Antonio Carvalho ukuleles are beautiful looking instruments with an earthy, warm tone comparable to instruments twice the price and more!
