I am drop tuning one of my guitars to drop c.

The strings on it are 9 gauge.

Is this a problem?

what should/could I do?

you can do it, but it won't sound pretty, your gonna get some rattle on the low C, get a heavier gauge

Yeah definetly get a heavier gauge it will work for now but it won't sound that good.

10-52 is pretty good for Drop-C
welcome to go heavier than that
I know I sometimes go to 14's

well I have my string height PRETTY high (just prefer it that way) so there is no fret buzz or anything so far (im in drop c now).

Its a tad muddy but I just turn the treble up just a tad to brighten things up
