In North America a Mandola is tuned C-G-D-A from bass to treble, the G string having the same pitch as a Mandolin G string. In other words, the Mandola is one string or one fifth lower than the Mandolin. An Octave Mandolin (also called an Irish Bouzouki) is G-D-A-E, exactly one octave lower than a Mandolin. Irish Tenor Banjo is tuned the same as an Octave Mandolin, normal Tenor Banjo tuning is C-G-D-A, one octave below Mandola.
