So I currently use 10-46 on a 25.5 scale. I mainly play in D tuning, but sometimes I'll play in standard tuning or drop C. I don't really have a problem with the higher strings, but the lower strings feel loose, especially in drop C. So I was thinking of picking up the 10-52s. I think that would be good for D tuning/drop C, but would that be too heavy for standard tuning? If not, would you also recommend 11 over 10?

we get tons of string questions, (not that its a problem), you should try a few different packs or gauges. strings are cheap.

i use 11's in STD/Drop D,

i recommend trying one of either some form of hybrid pack, or maybe just swap the sixth up to a .052 or .56. try some see what works best for you.

everybody has different preferences. find what fits you best, and the only way to do that is to try it.

and good luck. remember that you may need a setup or just a little tweak if you change gauges thats normal.

This. I use a .052 or a .056 for D standard or Drop C. Just depends on how much tension you want.

I normally buy D'Addario sets EJ21 (12-16-24w-32-42-52) and EJ22 (13-17-26w-36-46-56). But you may not like the wound third if you really like to bend.

i don't like wound thirds. i still haven't figured out what gauge i want on my drop tuned guitars. if thirds worked for me i would just use 5 strings and get a thick 6th separately.
