There are banjos of cavaquinho-size with 4 single strings; a larger one with 4 single strings is a kind of tenor banjo : (banjo de acordes).
With 4 double strings and the size of a mandolin : the banjolim; a larger one with 4 double strings, the size of a mandola : the banjola.

Usually the body of these banjo's is made of a round wooden box (side and back), in which the "drum" with the metal rim and the skin front, are fixed with a screw.
