GUEST,Pete Sumner mandola tunings (11) RE: mandola tunings 15 Jul 08

I often keep a mandolin in ADAD....combine two packets of strings, one light and one heavier....and use the lighter G string for the low A and the heavier E string for the high D...
This produces an open sound that is great for song accompaniment....
The same idea can be used for the mandola/octave mandolin....the string tension calculator is really the answer though.
