This is what the guys at Fylde have to say about the particular design - Often described as an Octave mandolin, but that raises confusion when compared with a bouzouki. Normally tuned GDAE, this Mandola is based on our arch top body shape. The spruce top, combined with a larger soundhole and a shallower body, produces a lively bright sound, particularly useful for tunes and anywhere it needs to stand out amongst other instruments.
