Notes and Terminology

The octave mandolin (US and Canada), termed the octave mandola in Britain and Ireland and mandola in continental Europe, is a fretted string instrument with four pairs of strings tuned in fifths, G, D, A, E (low to high), an octave below a mandolin.

The mandolin-banjo is a hybrid instrument, combining a banjo body with the neck and tuning of a mandolin and it has been independently invented in more than one country, being called banjolin and banjourine in English speaking countries, banjoline and bandoline in France, and the Cümbüş in Turkey.

A mandolin (Italian: mandolino; literally "small mandola") is a musical instrument in the lute family and is usually plucked with a plectrum or "pick". It commonly has four courses of doubled strings tuned in unison (8 strings), although five (10 strings) and six (12 strings) course versions also exist. The courses are normally tuned in a succession of perfect fifths. It is the soprano member of a family that includes the mandola, octave mandolin, mandocello, and mandobass.The octave mandolin (US and Canada), termed the octave mandola in Britain and Ireland and mandola in continental Europe, is a fretted string instrument with four pairs of strings tuned in fifths, G, D, A, E (low to high), an octave below a mandolin.
