i've been thinking about getting a seven string. probably a schecter damien 7. i play death metal.... maybe more melodic death metal, and i usually play in a drop C or drop B(Ab). what are some common tunings for 7 strings and are they "dropped" tunings?

Drop D/A - ADADGBE

Drop A - AEADGBE

you can find the other ones yourself from there

ESP LTD H-400

standard tuning is (high to low)
e B G D A E B

you can drop it to drop A
e B G D A E A

or put slightly lighter strings on it, and do something like
F# C# A E B F# B

which is drop B with a high F#
theres lots of options.
I've got my 7 in C# standard with a high F#, but thats just my preference..
you can do whatever you want, really (within reason)

Drop A is the most used 7 string drop tuning.
