reach Standard tuning? I just bought them tonight, thinking I could possibly make Drop A/Drop B work, but it didnt work out too well. Long story short, i'm in Drop C# and wondering if I can get back up to Standard without busting a string. I'm pretty sure the high E, B, and G will make it, but will the rest?
ya but go slowly.
i use them for standard tuning. they work just fine. you might need to make a slight adjustment but thats about it.
Are they really tight?
I used to use them for standard, they worked fine. Now I have a set of .11's on my strat, and i keep it in standard. Shouldn't be a problem.
i use 52-10's for standard cause i like the chunkier sound powerchords on the heavier strings whilst still beeing able to play lead on the the lighter strings, works fine... just takes a while to get used to the extra tension
