The Mandola is a fretted, stringed musical instrument.
It is to the mandolin what the viola is to the violin: the four double courses of strings tuned in fifths to the same pitches as the viola (C-G-D-A low-to-high), a fifth lower than a mandolin.
The mandola, though now rarer, is an ancestor of the mandolin. (The word mandolin means little mandola.) The mandola is commonly heard in folk music and Irish traditional music. Buy mandola online here at B Sharp Music shop Ireland.
