I'm getting the schecter damien 6
What strings do I need to buy?
I'm always switching between standard and drop C so I dunno

d'addario .011-.049 is my personal favorite. strings are all opinion, just gotta try a bunch of different brands and gauges and see which you like best.
i used to be a mod, then i took an arrow in the knee.

Thanks

DR Tite-Fits 11-50's or Ghs Boomers 11-50 I go from standard to b standard with those and it sounds just fine. (you'd have to raise the action quite a bit if you wanted to go below C standard though)

for drop c your really going to want an 11 gauge high E string. otherwise it gets to flabby.

eh sorry I don't know what you meant by raise the action :\
I guess I can buy two different sets and change out. or only play standard on my old guitar<--yeah might do that.
are you saying 10-52s would be good for drop c though?

Raising or lowering the action refers to changing the height of the strings from the fretboard. What kind of guitar do you have? if it's a a strat then all the screws by the bridge saddles are for adjusting your action. Some guitars have two screws on either side of the bridge. These are also for adjusting the action.

edit: yes 10-52's would be ok for drop c. You might have to raise the action on the high side more than the low side to compensate for the 10 guage
