    Same advice I gave earlier on strings. Buy 3 or 4 different brands. As you are finding out, not all (quality) strings sound good on all ukes. Sometimes it can take some experimenting before finding the brand/type that both you AND your uke prefer.

    Dont be afraid to swap out that low G if you desire. The 1st & 4th strings are normally the same size on high G sets so any A string will work in that spot. (or you could just swap' em all...again, uke strings are cheap. dont try to get frugal with them. They arent worth the trouble)
