I have a Dean '79 Series V that I want to put into C Standard tuning (down two steps from standard). I want to get some heavier strings to handle this tuning. I have already used a set of light top / heavy bottom type strings on another guitar I own and I like them, but I was looking for any other opinions as to what strings I should buy.

A set of normal .11s or .12s should do fine.

Just to make sure, the down tuning will take care of any problems I would have bending 11's or 12's right?

Zakk Wylde Boomers, they will do

- Fender Strat (1988, Japan)
- Epiphone Les Paul (2008, Korea,)

the low e matters more than the high e when droping to c.............try like a .52 to .11
.54 to .11 either of those should work good.

For the most part. Keep in mind though that while the tension will be lowered, the strings will be the same thickness, so they still might be a tad clumsy compared to say, 9's in standard tuning.

12-54 gauge would be good, then you could take it all the way down to drop B pretty easily.
