    You tuned the 5-string CGDAE like a mandoline plus a low C?

    Re: Gibson Mandocello

    Another question: Would it be possible to use only four strings on the mandocello (every string only once not twice)
    like on a tenor guitar? Or would this make the MC distort?

    Re: Once again: GDAE on Concert Ukulele

    I have to learn/play together with my kids. So it should not be more difficult for me by CGDA. CGDA means other clef and all the notes are on another place then.

    Gauges? Do you want to know the diameter of the strings? They are at the red arrows.

    Re: Once again: GDAE on Concert Ukulele

    Thank you, ProfChris. I have found an octave set (Gdae', i.e. one octave lower than a standard mandolin) for my mandolin.
    I thought that would be also possible for ukulele. What a pity! :-((((
