Thread Name: mandola, octave mandolin or what
Subject: RE: mandola, octave mandolin or what
Sometimes these are strung with heavier strings as a mandocello, an octave below a viola/mandola (C-G-D-A), but some string mandocellos with lighter strings and tune them G-D-A-E...I usually keep my mandocello tuned this way, as I'm no longer a member of a mandolin orchestra, so the higher tuning is more useful to me.

It's all good.
