Anyone replace the A string with the G string on a tenor ukulele
to get a deeper sound ? ....

Or swap other strings ? Heard Iz used to
switch strings for softer feel.....

I've seen all sorts of hotrodding, especcially on the 6-string ukuleles. Uncle Ross Oana (Vancouver, WA) put a low G on his 6 string and had 2 unison A strings. Cool sound.
