Hey, i want to play in a low tuning like Machine Head and Slipknot (Drop H/B or Drop A), and i just want to know what strings to use. I forgot what i currently use but i know they aren't thick enough. Please help

Drop H huh???

drop tunings you want at least 10 gauge, but I go with 11's

you better have a kick ass guitar if you are planning on tuning that low, and you want to sound good.

Drop H = Drop B in german notation. Might be Bb, not sure.

But yeah 11's or 12's should do you well. You also might want to look into a seven-string, it's got an extra string already tuned to low B. You'd have to get used to a wider neck, though.

H is german notation for B

As far as i know the only liquor that should not be stored after opened is wine, and even then it's mainly the french one. American wine usually has conservatives in it to stop this.

Don't ever play in drop B or A on a guitar that is set up for standard. You need to either buy a baritone guitar, which is just a six string which is meant to be tuned that low, or buy a 7 string.

EDIT: Use 12's.

Unwritten rule of thumb is go up a gauge when you go down a whole step;
E = 9/10
D = 10/11
C = 11/12 and so on...

12s should be fine with B but I have no idea why you'd want to go that low. For the most part, alot of guitars can't handle being that low and having clarity, but if muddy is your game (you did mention Machinehead and Slipknot) then you have nothing to worry about.
