Hey people, i'm going to order my Eclipse tomorow.
I'm going to play in Drop C, so i need to order some strings too.
Isnt 010 013 017 036 052 060 ideal for Drop C ? or should i go with
011 014 018 036 052 070.
I really want a really bad ass sound Heavy and tough
Also, i'm gonna order it through my little guitar pusher shop.
But i'm like, they are gonna fine tune the guitar, and i'm a little afraid, that they might not have that much experience. ( They are all 30+year old experienced ). and they live for the music, is that really enough to set up a guitar ? And they do have some technical background
or doesnt it take that much skill to finetune guitars? ( Action and stuff ).
Also, if i make them set up the guitar for DROP c, is it reversable? or do they remove something physical from the guitar, that isnt replaceable ?

And sorry for the wall of text!

Usually, they don't take anything off the guitar (i think), they just get the most out of your guitar for the drop c, so it could be less good if you are tuning it to someting else,
BUT...don't trust me, I don't know that much about it

they mostly just change the action which is reversable

^That..

And thicker strings give you more tension as you are "dropping" the strings tension to that particular tuning.

So in one case thicker might give you a better sound, 11s would be fine, but another big factor for your heavy sound would be your amp.

Tweak around and find your heavy sound, and btw... how much are you getting the Eclispe?
The ESP Eclipse? whoah. I bet it'll sound killer!

im using 10-52 for D standard just now, so that would probably work well for drop C

a low 70?
good god......
even bands in like C standard or drop B dont even use that....
