if your guitar has a 25.5' scale length then a lot of the time 10-52 will cut it, give them a try

It really depends on your guitar, your own playing style, and your personal preferences. You just have to experiment around a bunch. I play drop c on my ibanez xiphos, and I know eeveryone says to use chunky strings, but I personally like the feel of a 9-42 set dropped down, but that's my own preference. Remember that if you get a larger set, you need to fix the action and intonation on the guitar.

i use d'addario EXL115W sets. its 11-49 with a wound g string. best strings IMO for drop c. but like others have said, its all about preference. i know a lot of people who like 10-52s. so you kind of have to try it out.

Haven't tried them, but A7X uses them. But they use Drop D, so...

But my personal recommendation is the Dunlop Heavy Core. I think they're like $1 cheaper then Ernie Ball, but they're really nice.

They come in 10-48, 11-50 (what I use, on my Agile Les Paul), and 12-54.

Use D'Darrio Drop C Strings says for drop C tunings right on the package, probably one of the best strings i've ever played

i did not like them at all, the bottom strings were good an chunky like you want, but then once you get to the higher strings the just sounded really thin and weak, and plus the uneven tension didn't agree with my trem either

I use DR Tite-Fit .012-.052 for Drop C and for anything lower I use Not Even Slinkys they are great for Drop B and A#.

Beefy Slinky sizes are ideal... but I'd use Elixir Heavies (12s) but if you need to tune to standard still, mediums (11s) are probably the best compromise

Dean Markley .11s (JZ). They even come with a wound 3rd, which I find awesome as hell.
