    Sounds quite good.

    Eventually, when you need to change the strings, you should try some fluorocarbon strings on it to get a different warmer sound.

    Or even a set of Low-G strings.

    Enjoy it.

    Yes, there are, and they give any uke a new sound. Freemont Soloist comes highly recommended. I asked here before buying a few.

    Yes, as Jerry said, there are. They come in plain (the same material the other strings are made of in the set), or wound (like a low guitar string). The Low-G is an octave lower than the high-g. When people talk about "linear tuning" that's what they are usually referring to. The strings go from lowest to highest (Strings #4 to #1) in a linear fashion. Re-entrant tuning or High-g tuning goes from the second highest string (g, #4) to the lowest (C, #3) to slightly higher (E, #2) to the highest (A, #1). Not in a linear order—which is what the term re-entrant refers to.

    I'm not a fan of wound strings. (Low-G, High-G or the C-String.) I think they tend to overpower the other strings, and they wear out faster. But many player disagree and like them. I use plain Low-G fluorocarbon strings, usually bought as a set of Low-G, C, E & A strings on most of my tenors. Living Waters are my favorite, but Worth Brown Mediums and Fremont BlackLines are also very good. Check out Stringsbymail.com for an idea of the varieties that are available.
