    there are several ways to do this.

    You could get a classical guitar string set and use regular tension ADGB strings and tune higher to DGBE on tenor uke.
    Alternatively, you could get a "Extra...

    Personally I think you should try a better quality Baritone ukulele made of all solid woods in the $500-1000+ price range.

    I am very glad that it's worked out for you too.
    It's an amazing powerhouse of an amp that can handle just about any task involving audio I throw at it.

    It's all a matter of taste, and the best way to find out is to try them.
    Fortunately strings are cheaper than most ukuleles.
    Just give them a week or two to settle in before they sound right.

    Wound strings naturally squeak a bit.. due to their nature.

    This occurs for all instruments. You lose a bit of tone up the scale.
    It also depends on the quality of the instrument.

    On well made instruments, the loss is not as significant as a crap one with...

    Hi mate, I think it's better to stick to the standard tunings, either GCEA and DGBE.
    It keeps you in tune with the rest of the world.

    If you want to sound lower than GCEA with a low-G, try an...

    Mate, a baritone scale guitalele tuned E to E is just a small classical guitar.

    They automatically tune up to ADGCEA on a shorter scale.

    Negative effect on tone of having 2 magnetic pickups rather than 1 is quite negligible.
    Sure, theoretically it makes sense... but plenty of industry standard 2 pickup guitars are used professionally...

    Thanks for that, I'm a big fan of Eneloop batteries which I use with a Fujitsu smart charger.
