As the thread says, does the string tension on 9-46eb equals 10-52 in Db ?

Or in Dstd?

if not, then what would be a suitable, rather loose and bend-easy string set for Db tuning?

I'd like string tension like Ygnwie's preferably something like 8-48 in Eb, but I want to drop it down to Dstd or Db.

Well I play .10s in E std so its all preference really. I think its bendable. But its about tone as well.

there was some awesome calculator for that somewhere

edit: if you google guitar string tension calculator, there's plenty of results, you should be able to count desired tension (8's in Eb i guess) and then find what gauge you need for same tension in Db

can't really recommend anything else, since i play myself with 11's in E and Eb

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Just to point out (like no one knows already), its not only the tension that feels different, but the thickness.
