1 Answer

A mandolin banjo is an instrument (either conventionally constructed or of the zither style) with 4 pairs of strings (8 strings in total) tuned and played just like a mandolin. A banjolin is a very similar instrument but with only 4 strings. It is tuned like a violin but played like a mandolin banjo. more
