Default Tune the Alto down to (low) A E B F#

I love the way the Instrument sounds like this. It resonates so much more than the C G D A. I originally tuned it down to low C but the strings were too loose so I just it down to what sounded best and then checked it with the tuning fork and it was a perfect A. The whole instrument resonates so beautifully. The strings sound less metalic..The body seems big enough to handle the low A easily. Playing Pizzicato also sounds amazing. I've played fretted instruments for a long time, so I can play the Alto more like a fretless-ukulele-guitar plucked, cords, sound so much fuller than when tuned to the standard C. Wondering what strings would be ideal for that though..
