Are there any particular brands or types (flat-tops or whatever) that react better to regular changes in tension though? I go from open tunings to standard to double-drop-D, etc. all the time on electric and acoustic.

I haven't really noticed any problems, I'm just curious.

well if ur going lower u would need a thicker gauge, for drop D .09 would still be fine
And so probably will D standard

But any lower get a larger size

.10 will be an allrounder


He's talking about acoustic guitar.

.11-.12 I'd say, unless you drop really far. But I have my acoustic tuned to C standard with .12's, strings are loose but they intonate well so no problem.

yeah some strings tend to only be used for a type of tension and any other tunings may cause intonation. but most sets of strings tend to be fine with changing of the tuning as long as they are the right thickness
