Is 11-56 good for drop C to Drop A?

Should be fine for drop C. Drop A they probably won't have much tension left

Always up for some C4C, been compared to Frank Turner, The Cure's Robert Smith and Bruce Springsteen so check out my stuff if you like the sound of that

I imagine so. I use 11s in standard and Eb, on a 24.75 scale, so you should be fine on your LTD

On a 25.5, 12-56. I don't particularly know about any smaller lengths. I put on some 11-60's on mine and I loved it, and it did fine by me. However, I do hate plain 3rd strings, something that's common in bigger string sets, but that's a personal taste thing.

No.


Well, technically it could be done, but only in the same way that you could change a cat into a hamburger. It's an unpleasant process, and nobody is happy with the result.

11-56 will be fine for anything down to about Drop B. I use 11-52 in Drop B and they are fine.
But for going another tone down to Drop A, which I have recently pulled my guitar out of, they struggle for tension. Especially from the 1st to 3rd frets. I, as a lot of other members in this forum would agree., wouldn't recommend 11-56 for anything like Drop A. You'd have to go a bit thicker, possibly with a 7 string set because they're thicker still, or even with a pack of 13's.
