Okay, although I am lost trying to figure out diameters!With all this talk of Tuning down it occurs to me that someone could buy sets intended for D Tuning and tune them to C instead. Now a little bit of caution here ‘cause some strings need a bit of tension to intonate well.
Anyway New Nylgut is popular and their 33U set is for Soprano D Tuning. https://aquilacorde.com/en/shop/modern-instrument-string-sets/ukulele-banjouke-en/new-nylgut-ukulele. If you have Nylgut strings already then check how far the gCEA strings can be detuned and what the diameters are, that’ll give you a feel for what the D set is likely to do when tuned to C.
