Hello all. I use Ernie ball hybrid slinky strings on my electric guitars (the orange packet). Since these strings are best meant for drop D tuning, I was wondering what the lowest tuning I could achieve for my guitar is without it sounding like shit and my strings being in danger of falling off.

I'm currently writing a song that requires me to tune my guitar way lower than the normal so this is really important for me to know!

What tuning are you looking at?
Guitar/Bass:
Schecter: Damien 6/Stilletto Extreme 5, Squier: Bullet HSS*, Washburn RX10*/WG-587, Agile Septor 727
*mods

Amps/FX
Peavey: Vypyr 30/Max 112 (200W), ISP: Decimator

Go try it out and see. Report back.

are we talking the Hybrid 46-9? if so, low tunings are going to turn the strings into wet noodles. They are perfect for E standard imo. I have them on my Jackson Adrian Smith and feel great. If you get a good low tuning let us know.

D standard should be fine with the 10-52. You'd probably want something higher than 52 for drop c tho
