So I've been playing a lot of metal lately, and I'm sitting in Drop C at the moment. I'm only running on Ernie Ball .10 gauge strings right now, and I've read that .11 or .12 are better for Drop tunings (and allow for better pinch harmonics...?), so I was looking into picking up a pack of DR Tite-fit .11 or .12 strings, but I'm concerned that in doing so I may be limited in styles I can play. Are .11/.12 really only good for metal and drop tunings, or do they fair well in standard EADGBe and for other types of music? Thanks guys!

I would think the tuning rather than the strings would hinder your ability to play certain styles. The gauge shouldn't really matter as long as you're not fighting to bend them properly.

.12s would be good


but to be really metal you should use intestines as fret wire.

If you really want to be metal, look at my sig.
