The one that you like the best. Go out buy some strings, find one you like, use them.

I suggest you try D'Addario 11-49. I find those good for drop C, but you should try a few different gauges until you find the right one for you.

Personally, I'm a fan of 10-52. Sounds great on drop C, and not too much tension when I switch to drop D or standard. I once tried 12-56 and I hated them. Too much tension, even on drop C, and they were simply too thick. I especially hated that 24P G string.
So yeah, I'll go ahead and say 10-52 are the best.

I use 10-52 in a 24.5 scale length guitar. Standard tuning. Good for me.
Do you feel like I do!?

10-52 on drop c is shoe strings man.

this is a bs thread. Strings are a personal thing, you really have to put the time in for different strings and find what works for youl

I use Dunlop Heavy Core heaviest 12-54. I tried 4 different sets of strings before deciding to keep the 54's. 50's are a good starting point. Just work your way up till you find what you like. Strings are cheap. Buy a few sets and test them out.

The one you like best.

Seriously, this is like picking a color for your guitar. Go try a few and see what works.
