Exclamation Balalaika

Is there any Russians or anybody else in here who knows (or have a link on) how to tune a balalaika?

First off, what type of balalaika is it, and how many strings does it have?

Well, usually (on the most common type of balalaika) the tuning is EEA.

Used to, but it broke. I've been scouring the 'net to find a decent balalaika ever since.

i have a balalaika

it's easy to play, and you cant really play a bad note/chord on it...

it's hard to hold. with the scooped bowl styled acoustic back it doesnt sit well on anyones lap.

i tune it either ACE or DAB, using a Boss TU-80 tuner, from thicker string -> thinner.
