Subject: RE: Looking to replace Octave Mandolin
Here's an article that might shed some light on the characteristics of the various CBOM's.
My Crump bouzouki has a 25 1/2" scale and I mostly play it in GDAD and my Stuart OM is usually in GDAE though I use both tunings on either instrument. For me GDAD seems to work better for accompaniment and GDAE for melody and counterpoint.
I'm very sorry to hear about your house.
