ive been learning some in flames stuff recently, but my current strings (10 - 46) are to thin and it doesnt sound as good. so what gauge of string would be best to use for tuning in C standard?

i use Blue Steel .12-.54 but drop the .12 and put a .13 in and drop the .54 and put a .56 in

well i use ernie ball slinkys, ive been looking at either the skinny top heavy bottom (10 - 52) or beefy slinkys (11 - 54) would one of those been good?

yeah, probably
i'd say use the skinny top heavy bottom if you are more into shredding and solos on the higher strings
but if you aren't really or can deal with a little bit thicker strings, get the beefy slinkys

thanks man, yeah i do (attempt) a lot of soloing so i'll try out the skinny tops

Do any of you like the Ernie Ball Classic strings? I think they are fairly good.

11 is good already for C, no floppyness or "spaghetti strings". but 12 is even tighter and feels a bit better.

11's at C (when they're drop tuned)feel like what extra light strings would feel like at standard

12's at C (when they're drop tuned) feel like what medium strings would feel at standard tuning
