He guys, I recently started a thread on string gauges but what im trying to play has changed since then. Im gonna be playing a lot of bfmv songs. and they're in drop C. So I want strings that are perfect for drop C. The low strings shouldn't be loose. they should be kinda tight but not too tight. Loose enough to be bent. Ill be playing drop B but not a lot . Ill be tuning to D standard sometimes. So which gauge would be best for me?

Pro Tip - Neck pickup, tone dial rolled all the way off, makes tuners respond WAY more accurately. I only learned this trick fairly recently, and it actually works.

Skinny top heavy bottoms. Replace the .52 with a .56

DR Alexi Laiho 56-10 strings for both drop C and B on a 25'5 scale

Strings are cheap, buy a few different packs and find out what gauges you like. Nobody will be able to tell you what will be best for you, everyones preferences are different!

i've been pretty happy with the dunlop 12-54's lately. you could also try the ernie ball titanium coated in 11's. it kinda depends on your scale length and how tight/loose you want the strings. i have a 26inch scale neck so its kinda long and keeps decent tension.

those dunlops are really nice and punchy though. give them a shot
