I currently have my guitar set in drop d tuning, i play alot of heavy **** and trivium. but i saw that powerman5000 uses EADGBe and all the notes are flat. which would give me a deeper sound, the drop d or all strings flat?
probably Drop D, because the low e string now has more string to it making it seem like a heavier gage. But it could be anything.
probably the flat tuning because all your strings would have less tension compared to your other strings.
