Description

The APC TC is a classic-style tenor ukulele with greater sound depth and a spectacular appearance.

The APC TC is a high quality ukulele, made with solid wood, characteristic sound, well defined and very present. The top, bottom and sides are in solid koa, a species of acacia native to Hawaii, which gives it an identity and sound very close to the native instruments of the American island.
 
The wood tonality of the body offers a very organic look and great aesthetic richness. The pelmet is in inlaid maple and the scale is in beautiful African black wood. The greater number of frets allows a broader melodic scope for musicians who wish to exercise their virtuosity and musicality.

The tenor ukulele is the second largest of the ukulele models, with a larger box than the concert ukulele and, traditionally, with a larger scale. It is widely used by more advanced musicians who want an instrument with greater volume and projection.

The ukulele is a direct descendant of the Portuguese cavaquinho, which was taken by Portuguese sailors to the American Pacific islands to cheer the crew on their long voyages.

It later became a very popular instrument in the early decades of the twentieth century, in which Hawaiian-inspired music filled the early days of radio in the United States, and kept American soldiers company during World War II. Nowadays, it is one of the instruments of fashion for being easy to learn and very fun to play, in addition to being able to take it everywhere.

APC TC is manufactured in Portugal by APC artisans who applied the best techniques and all the knowledge acquired over decades to its construction.

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 selling instruments to more than twenty countries.

APC TC is a great tenor ukulele with superior sound quality, excellent for demanding musicians who want to expand their musical potential.
