Uh, I would think that Drop A would be fine, but drop B might require a set up.

So do you want to send the regular six strings down to drop B, or do you want to use the low b of the seven string as the base and raise the other 6 strings up a step?

Either way really, I would think it would need a set up.

I don't know why you'd want to do that but you should probably have it set up properly if you're going to.

Guitars can handle being tuned up a step. You'll need to reintonate and adjust the action but that's it.

EDIT: THe 7-string equivelant for drop B would just be...

B (B)
F# (E)
B (A)
E (D)
A (G)
C# (B)
F# (E)
