Cavaquinho Acústico Giannini Raiz CS1 BD EYE NS (Bird Eye)

SKU: 26042



The Raiz series brings to you instruments that, as the name says, are rooted in Brazilian culture and our history, which rescue our traditions and were fundamental in the construction of Brazilian music. The cavaquinho is one of these instruments, fundamental in styles such as samba and chorinho.

All Raiz series models have a solid top and laminated back and sides, made with brazilian woods.

The cavaquinho CS1 BD EYE NS apresenta tampo em Marupá maciço, com lateral e fundo em Bird Eye, braço em Cedro Brasileiro e escala em Pau-Ferro.

The woods

Bird’s Eye

Utilizado em faixas/fundos de instrumentos como violão e cavaquinho. Sua superfície possui nós de tamanhos variados, cujo aspecto arredondado faz lembrar olhos de passarinho (Bird’s Eye). A formação desses “olhos” pode ser observada já no momento em que a casca é separada do tronco; por não ser genética, acontece somente de forma natural, devido a condições particulares ocorridas durante o crescimento da árvore. De secagem vagarosa, possui densidade média e coloração clara.


It has excellent sound speed and an articulate tone, with dominant midranges (i.e., good treble and balanced bass). Used as a substitute for Spruce in the tops of acoustic instruments, and for Maple or Poplar in solid bodies. As it is a typical tree of floodplain forests, Marupá is common to be found in the Amazon region. With low density and grain, without visible veins (white-yellowish predominance in color), medium to coarse texture, it is easy to work with, dries quickly and allows for a good finish.

Brazilian Cedar

Widely used in solid instruments, due to its lightness and stability. The sound provided by Brazilian Cedro is characterized by a deeper and velvety tone, excellent bright definition (as it is not very resinous), good projection and sustain. Natural wood from open forests and fields with a hot/humid climate, widely distributed in the North region, mainly in the states of Acre, Amapá, Amazonas, Pará and Rondônia. It has low density, medium to thick texture, pinkish-beige color, and veins forming smooth regular designs.


Used in acoustic instruments and in the creation of fingerboards and bridges. It produces pieces with good sound, beautiful finishing and excellent sustain, with a brighter tone than Rosewood, but which manages to retain the warmth for which Rosewood is celebrated. Its color varies from light yellowish brown to brownish brown, with dark veins forming characteristic and exotic irregular designs. Known for its rigidity, moderately light and very durable, Pau-Ferro is found in Goiás, Minas Gerais, Espírito Santo, São Paulo and Paraná states.
