Are there any good low g strings for a soprano. I can find plenty of concert and tenor string, but no soprano. If I could order only the one string that would also be good.

Aquila has a set (http://www.juststrings.com/aqu-aslwg.html) and Worth has one (http://www.elderly.com/accessories/names/worth-bm-lg-soprano-/-concert-with-low-g-uke-set--WSBMLG.htm) also.

Kanaka has you pointed in the right way.

You can also use Concert strings on your Soprano, I do on my Pono.

You could also get an Acoustic Guitar silk/wound D string (same size as a uke G (.028) ) and go that route any Guitar shop should have that on hand, thats what I did for my Low G Tenor and Soprano instead of replacing all the strings.

can you use tenor strings on a soprano? Just put my old tenors on my soprano, they sound fine but is it ok? (I dont realy care about the sop, its a cheapo)

Tenor strings tend to have higher gauges and tensions. Depending on how high the tension is and how strong the bridge is glued, there's a risk of the bridge coming right off.
