Ernie Ball:

"Skinny Top Heavy Bottom" goes from 10-52

"Hybrid Slinky" (nickel wound) goes from 9-46

From D'addario:

9-46:

10-52:

And DR strings have some too:

Also, if you have a trem, changing your string gauge will mean balancing your trem and frequent use of different tunings and a Floyd Rose-style bridge don't go together very well. If you want to switch tunings a lot, I'd recommend getting a tremol-no (www.tremol-no.com) from www.allparts.com.

10s will be what you want. D'addario sells a set of .0105s which may be what you want, they're called Regular Light Plus, possibly the worst name for a set of strings, but they might do the trick.

You'll also want to re-adjust your tremolo when you re-tune.

Yes, that is what I use for drop C and and D Standard, and also e standard/ drop d ( all on the same guitar) except I take out the 52 and put in a 56, which I buy seperately. It's like, 2 bucks

Well the cool thing about the tremol-no is the fact that with twist of a screw is goes from floating to divebomb-only to fully locked. It's only 65$, it doesn't take a genius to be installed and from the amount of positive feedback it has been getting, I think it's safe to say it's worth the money.
