Right now I use DR strings 10-46 and play in dropped C tuning. My friend recommended that I get a thicker gauge because of the lower tuning. I'm not too knowledgeable about different string gauges; I wanted someone to confirm or deny if this would be a good idea and why.
Yes, it gives you better string tension.
That does make some more sense now, thanks! What gauge would you recommend I switch to?
What scale length is your guitar?
24.75 Not the best for dropped tuning but it's all I have
At least .11s maybe .12s. I have to go with .11s for C# as none of the shops near me carry .12s
Drop C as in drop D down a step, right? 12-54 should work.
Drop C as in drop D down a step, right?
Yeah, and thanks again! That really helps me out.
No prob. Hey, where in CA are you?
