    Yes you can string a baritone GCEA, Kala and Living Water make string sets specifically for that purpose. I have done it and it sounds like a tenor with more resonance and sustain because of the bigger body and longer scale length

    Aquila used to make a set especially for that purpose too; when I briefly owned a Baritone scale ukulele, I used a set so that I could play along with the rest of our local group.
    All power and respect to you Concert,Tenor and Baritone players, but Soprano is what does it for me every time! (And my beautiful Sopranino!)

    I've always described a baritone tuned to C as sounding like a great big tenor. If you want a plug and play solution, Mya Moe sells a "tenor tuned baritone" string set that uses a wound low G.

    I have a 50s Harmony baritone with PhD low G strings. I like it better than when I had it tuned DGBE.

    I really liked how they sounded on a Kanile'a Spruce Top Baritone.

    I Knew someone who did it with a Kala, and it sounded wonderful!
