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.

Thanks.

Yes, it gives you better string tension.

That does make some more sense now, thanks! What gauge would you recommend I switch to?

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.
