The Mandola, often used in Irish traditional music, is to the mandolin what the viola is to the violin. The four double courses of strings are tuned in fifths to CGDA, which is a fifth lower than a mandolin. Also, many altered tunings can be used. Our Mandola features an authentic Celtic tone and has low string action, and the cast tailpiece is stronger and thicker than sheet metal tailpieces, providing more sustain. This traditionally shaped and finished Mandola would be a welcome alternative instrument to mandolinists.

Product Description

The Mandola is becoming increasingly popular with all 4 string players. Its viola style tuning and body shape produce a haunting, but bright, tone. It allows the player to experiment with unconventional keys and is also a great instrument for vocal accompaniment with its lower pitch. Traditionally tuned CGDA.
