Whenever I try to use a drop C# tuning my string tension is so loose my guitar doesn't sound good at all. What are some ways to fix this?

Thicker-gauge strings are your best bet. What do you have on your guitar now?

That's your problem. For that tuning, I wouldn't use anything less than mediums (.011-.049).

Thanks everyone for the really quick responses. Are there any particular strings you like a lot.

.12's are best for a tuning that low, but .11's will work
edit: i like roto strings personally coz they sound really beefy

Thicker strings are what you'll need. Definitely .011s.

EDIT: I use Rotosound's strings. They are cheaper than most brands and have an extra 1st string with it!

I could run a standard tuning with strings as well right or would that high of tension be bad for the guitar.

Yeah, I play in standard with .011s on my Omen 6, and it's fine - I haven't had any truss rod issues since I last restrung two months ago.
