The largest and lowest of my mandolin family instruments, the mandocello or "bass-ouki" fits into a jumbo guitar case. A very full, deep, resonant sound comes from the large body, the same body I use for my larger bouzouki.
Excellent for solo song accompaniment or as a guitar replacement in a band situation while still keeping elements of the 'bouzouki' sound. Capoing at the 5th fret while tuned DAEA gives 'normal' GDAD, or it can, of course, with a replacement nut and saddle be strung GDAD. Two instruments in one!
