Not sure of the gauge but according to the back of my Ernie Balls, they're the make they use. Try 11's though, they should get you close.

EDIT: Damn you for getting there first!

Ernie Ball doesnt make the gauge he uses, you will just have to buy 2 packs and mix them.

depending on the scale of your guitar, you can actually buy any strings you want, as long as theyre thick enough. like on a guitar with 25.5" scale id suggest a set of 13's for the drop b tuning.

Do you recommend .13s for everything? God damn

But for Slipknot, I typically use Ernie Ball or D'Addario .12s
Not too loose, not too tight around the Drop B area.
