I usually use 11 gauge strings as i play in Drop C most of the time, However I like a tighter higher tension kinda feel,

So my question is, i Will be playing in 2 tunings mostly, Drop C and Drop B, For those 2 Tunings what is more optimal

11 Gauge or 12 Gauge strings?

I usually use 12 for straight C, I guess if you want you can use them for drop C and B.

I'd go with 12's, then. If you can, try to find a 12 top/13 bottom set. Not to many companies make them, but they would probably fit you perfectly.

I like EB Beefy Slinkies, 11-54. I use them mainly in drop C, but I've taken them to drop B before.

EDIT: My bad, I meant B standard. I've played some Soilwork a few times (in BEADF#B) and they've held up great.

Well, if you like a tighter feel then 12's, but it's all about personal preference.


This. Higher gauge will have more tension.

What he said ^^^

Personally my favourite is EB Hybrid Slinky, heavy bottom - light tops, they're great for things like Open C or D, and they still do well in drop C.
