I've just gone to order some brand new strings and the i wanted to get the gauge that Michael amott uses so i found out that he uses D’Addario custom set 11-15-18-32-44-59 but i wanted to know are they wounds or plated and what not so can anyone help me?

Probably wound. You'll have to get a custom set/single strings to get what he has though.

have you been using standard gauge and down tuing?

You could probably just use and 'ol 11-54 to get you where you need to go.

I would think that 56 is pretty good for C Standard; some 7-string sets have a 56 on the bottom. Then again, some 7-stringers use a 70 for the lowest string...

yeah TS i think your string are fine, though maybe a bit thibker on the lighter gauges. They should be sold in sets so you dont have to go and do what you were planning.

(though if you do copy him go buy a Ninja) mmm they are sexy

Well, I'd recommend the GHS Heavyweight Boomers if the tension wasn't all over the place... if you're fine with having a 52 on the A string (yes, I said that right, the A string) then you might wanna give these a try. But be careful.

I can do just fine with 11s (54 on the bottom) for C Standard... my guitar has a 25.5" scale though.
