use 10s for standard and 12s for drop c or lower 10s are fine for drop d

it won't snap but they will be incredibly tight and won't feel too great

The 10s are fine.
The 12s will probably have a lot of problems, I recently got some 12s too cause i've been using 11s and sometimes I forget which gauge i'm using and accidently got 12s this time. I had the file down the nut in the low E slot, and I can't even get it to half step down without the bridge raising up.. so i'm stuck in D standard for now

I need to find the right guages for my new 7 string. It's an extended scale so it's gona be different guages than the usual that I would get.
#6
I currently use 10 gauge and I do so to tune to E flat... I could get up to standard but it'll be really tight.... So if I wanted to play in standard I would just use 9 gauges..... The 12's will bust...... So try that at your own risk =)

Ok, I think I will put the standard gauges on my good guitar and the thick gauges on my ****ty guitar.

Okay TS

the thick strings wont snap when you tune up to to standard but it will put a LOT of tension on your neck and can cause it to warp

so get lighter strings for stand nothing higher than 11-52

my first thought was the tension too. I use 12s for C standard, thats two steps down. I cant imagine tuning up to standard with them.

Same, and I'm using a PGM.

Feels great, sounds great.
