I have Regular(10 13 17 26 36 46) gauge strings on now but they feel too small. What would be a good gauge for C standard tuneing?

I use 10-52 DR Dimbag High Voltage. They never break, they are still thin enough to be crunchy (60+ low e strings sound awful in my opinion, nothing but mud). DR's will last forever and stay nice and bright.

what scale is the guitar you are using?

likely 24.75" or 25.5"

longer scale helps the tone of thicker strings a lot.


Anyways, I use .12-.56 (I think .56) with the wound G for D standard, and they're pretty good. They should work lower but I'd go for .13s if your guitar can handle it.

C standard, thats basically Drop A you're looking at there.
Ted's spot on, 12-56. I use 11-50 for Drop c/d standard, and it handles C# standard and drop b well.
