I have a set of Dean Markley Mediums 11-52 gauge. Should these work for Drop C tuning? (D standard with 6th down to C).

yup that should work fine, i have 10-52's on my 24.75 inch scale (gibson les paul) and i play in drop Db and drop C and its perfect.

Yeah. It should be fine.

10's in Drop C on my RG are reasonable. 11's should be great.

Indie stands for Industrial I think, like Marilyn Manson.

I dont know how you guys do it. I use 12-52 for C, as i get the same tension i would using 10's in standard tuning. I hate the floppiness!

Yeah but do you use the 12s for Drop C or C standard?

11's are fine, expecially the 11-52's

11's in drop c are gonna feel like 10's in standard tuning.... easiest way i can describe it...

I use 11-50 for drop C.

I find a .52 6th string to have too much of a blunt sounding attack.

You are correct... some love it and some hate it... I didnt really like it as well so i just said the hell with it and switched to regular ole 11's and D-standard tuning

A 52 is too small for my liking in C. I use 56-12 in C standard. Anywhere from 58-54 is ideal IMO. For the high D i would use 11, 10 might be too floppy IMO.

11-52 is my exact gauge set for Drop C. Should work just fine.

52 would be too small for me but you could try them...
