Hey, how many of you guys downtune? I continuously find myself as low and a dropped c tuning etc.

What are some ways that i can prevent the strings from rattling and shifting when played with any pressure? For example, i saw josh homme back in the day with kyuss and he was beating the crap out of his strings and had no issues... his guitar's scale length is the same as mine (the standard lp 24 and 3/4 inches).

my current strings are 10's and i'm going to try 11's but outside of that what is there to do (does anyone know what homme did to prevent this problem?)

yea your gonna want a thicker gauge string, maybe even 13s. Also get your guitar set up professionally, take it to your local shop or something.
