Hey guys.

Im using D'addario 11s right now, and im playing anywhere between drop C to Standard, now, recently i've been experimenting with real low stuff, Drop A#, ala Nile.

The strings are flappy as balls right now, any idea what gauge would be good for A#, and A# alone, as i dont wanna tune up and destroy my guitars neck xD

Cheers
PC

Yer pick up a set of 13s or 14s

Or just use a seven string set and leave off the high E string

I use DR strings and tune to c/b.

I dont think that would help him at all, although DR are damn good strings

My suggestion would be to use 12s or 13s. Or use a lighter 7 string set and take out the high e

oops, you're i forgot to put the gauge. I use 11's, but a 7 string pack would probably be the best for you.

I use 13's and they work fine.
And yeah, Nile's drop A

I used Rotosounds heaviest gauge once, and it worked pretty well. Can't remember the gauge.
