Thread Name: Irish bouzouki
Subject: RE: Irish bouzouki
Nisse.......G-D-A-E is correct. Bouzouki and mandola are prominent in Irish music. Irish bouzouki (cittern) and octave mandolins are tuned an octave below regular mandolin, hence the rich tone. Price would probably be in the $600 to $1200 range for a quality new instrument, used ones are scarce as hen's teeth.....Tiger
