Cabaças are made from traditional natural gourds. They are thoroughly cleaned and polished, inside and out. These cabaças have even surface and are capable of sustaining long sounds and supporting overtones of your berimbau. Cabaças are offered in variety of designs, sizes, and socket constructions.
By default, cabaças come with 1-hole socket fixture that fits a contemporary berimbau with sound bridge and a tuning head.
On the contrary, 2-hole socket is a usual fixture for a classical berimbau where cabaça is bound with a rope. To order your cabaça with 2-hole socket, leave a comment "2-hole socket" when placing your order.

"I finally have the berimbau in my hand. It is nicer than I thought and I'm fussy when it comes to woodwork. I could feel right away that this is made with dedication and love. The light weight also surprised me. The packaging is very good also. Keep up the good work and Parabéns!"
