Inükshük mandola, octave mandolin or what (25) RE: mandola, octave mandolin or what 06 Sep 04


What a helpful thread. Thanks to all contributors. I recently acquired an excellent custom made mandocello that is presently tuned C-G-D-A. I really enjoy playing it, but seldom take it to gigs as the tunes have to be transposed from the way I play them on mandolin. I have been tempted to get heavier strings and tune it G-D-A-E, but I was worried about the increased tension. Also I would appreciate some guidance with respect to string gauges for this set up. My instrument has a scale length of 54cm.
