I decided to tune my guitar down a whole step, so I am wondering if i should change my string gauge? I use 10s when i play in standard tuning. Thanks
nah, keep it as it is
I use .11's and get a very small amount of fret buzz, not really enough to make a difference, and I can bend like crazy. Just try it with .10's and if they don't work step up a gauge until you find one you like. I love the tone you get down a full step.
Since you use 10's, try that. If you get buzz from that then step up a guage. I use 9's and cant tune more then a 1/2 step with out buzz. For a whole step just try your setup if not, then get new strings.
10s are perfectly fine i used it for drop db
