Description

The APC Concerto CS ukulele with Preamp is a modern and stylish model.

This APC CS model has a solid koa body, back and sides and the fingerboard is in black African wood. The koa is a species of acacia native to Hawaii, giving it an identity and personality very close to the original instruments.

The appearance of this ukulele benefits from the natural characteristics of the wood, giving it an organic appearance, with the veins and lines serving as a natural decoration on the top and sides, darker for a beautiful effect contrast. The binding that helps to highlight the body contour is in embedded maple.

The concert ukulele was created in the 1920s, as a modification of the traditional format. The body is larger than the soprano model, which gives it a slightly more serious and full sound. It has a longer neck and a larger scale, with more frets and a greater spacing between them. Otherwise, it is played in the same way and even the tuning is the same: A4 - E4 - C4 - G3.

The ukulele descends directly from the Portuguese cavaquinho, taken by Portuguese sailors to the American Pacific islands to musically animate the crews on their long voyages.

It became a very popular instrument in the early decades of the twentieth century, kept American soldiers in the barracks of World War II, and saw a resurgence in its popularity in recent years, thanks largely to its adoption by many indie bands and some international music stars. Among its supporters are Eddie Vedder and George Harrison.

APC was founded in 1976 by António Pinto Carvalho, who descended from a century-old school of luthiers in Porto. The company has about 45 artisans who build several types of traditional Portuguese and other origins. APC is the largest national company in this field, producing and distributing instruments to more than twenty countries.

The APC Concerto CS with Preamp ukulele is a modern looking instrument and benefits from all the experience and knowledge of APC artisans in its manufacture, which combine superior sound and beauty in a high quality product.
