Well recently i bought 2 sets of Zakk wylde's 10-60 heavy strings. I also bought 1 set of these D'addario blues/jazz rock 11-49's. I've been thinking, will it mess up my sound if i set up something like this:

.10 from dunlop strings
.13 from dunlop strings
.17 from dunlop strings
.28 from d'addario strings
.38 from d'addario strings

and .52 from dunlop strings(but it's normally the 5th string instead of the 6th)

i've got a locking trem so i don't want to have to do a full scale truss rod adjustment and stuff.
Will those guages still sound good? i play metal and i'm going to be in drop C
my gear:
Jackson DKMG(the one with EMG 81/85's)
b-52 AT 212 100 watt amp
old gear i'll probably sell eventually:
yamaha beginners guitar
gunmetal grey Fender squire strat
Fender 65R amp

if you're always gonna be changing string guages, don't do it, it'll mess with your floyd, but if you're confident thats wat you're gonan do, then go for it, but nothing will go wrong sound wise because of different strings, the ones from the oposite company might wear faster/slower, but i don't think it'll be a big difference

to save me some pain of having to buy zakk wylde strings+d'addario's every time i want to change a string, will the d'addario's sound good for metal? my guitar already sounds pretty bright(made out of alder wood), and it says on their site that it's a bright sounding set of strings http://www.daddario.com/DADProdDetail.aspx?CodaID=620&ID=1&Class=AABA
