    Re: Fifths on bass?

    Try 40 60 90 135 for cgda or fcgd with 25 40 60 90
    I have that on a 34 scale
    It would work on a shorter scale but will have less tension
    Hofner strings are 35-90 i think

    Re: Mandocello - options..?

    27 inch is a good choice
    My Suzuki mandocello is 22 inch and C strings are around .090
    My Hathway mandocello is 26 inch and has better tension but I have it strung up FCGD now
