I was smokin' a cig and I was playin my SG in C# and I was like what the hell, I'll do my 3 low strings on my Iceman in C# to see what it sounds like. So I tuned em and turned it on and it sounds more like the albums (first three) than I expected (they state that its in drop C). I have GHS boomers 54 on low E.

Anybody have any thoughts on this, If ask I will post clips of both in C and in C#

1. Wrong forum.
2. That's because C# and C are only a semitone apart. It will natural sound close to C.
3. Tonal characteristics play a huge part in heaviness. I've heard the heaviest bands in the world use E standard and I've heard light rock in Drop B.
