Antonio Carvhalo Instruments

Founded by Antonio Pinto Carvalho in 1976, APC Instruments is a Portuguese company with over 40 years experience in the manufacture of high-quality string instruments. Carvalho, a descendant of the famous 19th century school of guitar players in Porto city, has been a luthier since 1961, having learned the art from his grandfather. Today, APC Instruments is one of the largest producers of high-quality instruments in Portugal.

Electro Acoustic Pickup

One of the most exciting features of this Antonio Carvhalo mandola is its audio jack output. A pickup means volume is never an issue. Just plug in and play and control the volume and tone levels directly from the control panel. An electric acoustic instrument offers huge performance potential making this the perfect instrument for the gigging musician. 

What are the Advantages of a Floating Bridge?

Floating bridges are more versatile than fixed bridges and can be easily adjusted. This allows for ease of adjustments to intonation and string height. The floating bridge is one of the main features that helps to create the mandola's characteristic sound, creating a bright top-end sound with plenty of attack.
