I use 11-54s and it's perfect.

I'm assuming C# is all the strings down 1/2 step and the low a step and a half?

if so, that's my band's tuning.

i've done it, it works plenty well

i keep my guitar in D standard and i have plenty of tension to spare with that gauge, don't plan on tuning back up to e without redoing the neck relief on your guitar though

C# Standard is 1 1/2 steps down on every string.

Yup. .013s are apparently ideal for B standard, but I've always used them for C#/Drop B.
#7
.11-.52, .12-.54 are ideal.

definatly. I use them for drop c/d standard so they should be good. btw, I once used 9s for C# standard, not my best idea.

i use a set of .10-.56 for standard D. imo for the heavier strings, thicker is better. for metal anyway.

Alright cool, My guitar is in Drop C right now with 10's when I put 12's on do I need to adjust anything? (besides intonation)
