The lowest normally used tuning is DGBE. You could try tuning lower if you want

That's usually true, with the minor exception of DGBD or other "Slack Key" tunings, or this:

With proper string changes, anything's possible.... within reason. I couldn't take my Tenor down to dGBE without a string change.

Without string change, whats the lowest tunning on a concert uke?

Like the lowest standard tuning?
If I just wanted to go for deepest tuning, I s'pose you could just loosen the pegs a bit...

Odd question... Why you wanna do that to your uke?

I know you can acquire base strings for a uke... but you'd need an amp to even hear it...
(I doubt that's at all helpful)

I've played F-Bb-D-G. You might be able to go down another 1/2 or 1 whole step without the strings flopping around.

1/2 step less E-A-Db-Gb
1 step less Eb-Ab-C-F

Sure. I tune my Kala concert down to EADbGb for a number of songs that I play. Adds a whole new sound to your uke.
