I accidentally wrote on a thread yesterday that i wanted strings for a D# tuning(Eb). I want strings for a C# Standard tuning. The guitar is a 25.5" scale, no floyd or trem, and I use 10's standard but I can handle 11's almost as easily.

My friend suggested 12's. Would these be good?

i didn't know there was a C# standard...but i'd reccomend dimebag strings for anything lower than drop C

Either 11s or 12s would be fine. If you're tuning below C Standard when go 12s

I say get some 11-54s, playing without a tight bottom string sucks.

+1 on dimebag DR high voltage strings, they come in many sizes. You just can't break them and they are bright as hell which helps when you're tuned down so far.

Common logic.

My guitar is the same scale length as yours TS, I often pay in that tuning, I use 11's, works fine.

also I wonder if the 10-60 zakk wylde strings would apply more tension in C# standard than the guitar can handle
