Hi Stan - it’s been a long time - The Carousel in Didsbury, late 70s!

String calculators are OK and will tell you in theory what gauge strings to use but there’s no guarantee that using those suggested will actually work with any degree of satisfatction.

You could tune a mandolin like a double bass (assuming somebody makes heavy enough strings) but it wouldn’t sound very good.
