Koob Veneman (1923 - 2010) founded the Kapa brand in 1962 - the Kapa name was derived from the intials of his family. Kapa owned music shops (Veneman Music in Silver Spring, Maryland and later in Rockville, Maryland - finally in Springfield, Virginia) before starting to make his own instruments in the period 1962 to 1970. The Kapa guitar factory was located on 46th street Edmonston. Koob was a Dutch immigrant and before emigrating he worked with his father Albert Veneman in the Netherlands where they established the AMKA brand - which had an almost identical logo to Kapa.
Veneman used imported Hofner necks and hardware from Germany on the Kapa guitars. Later models used some Japanese parts. BY 1970 Kapa had stopped making guitars: Mosrite and Micro-frets bought the companys remaining stocks.
