About This Mandolin
Eastman MDA815 Mandola
The Eastman mandola, commonly used in folk music, is the tenor instrument of the mandolin family. Its eight strings are in four pairs, with the strings in each pair being tuned in unison. Overall tuning is in fifths like a mandolin, but beginning on bass C. The mandola can be described as being to the mandolin what the viola is to the violin.
