Don't tune them higher than that. They won't tune back down very easily.

I do Drop C with Ernie Ball Reg. 10's, Drop C is basically D standard with the D dropped a step, so, i think you'd be good, even if they are different brand of 10 gauges.
Poop.


Yes, poop.

All depends on how you're going to feel about it. I've had .09's in D standard, still do right now I beleive. I just find it more comfortable, and as MattAnderson stated, I use 10's for C as well.
Some people don't like it though.

Depends on the scale length of your guitar...

25.5" your fine. 24.75: may be a little loose...


It's a Gibson Les Paul, whatever scale that is. Some people say it's shorter?

Do you think keeping strings tuned high for a few weeks makes them less reliable for lower tunings? I thought once strings are broken in, their elasticity doesn't change.

For the record, I managed to tune and intonate it perfectly for Drop-C/D-Standard using 10's.

The low E string was difficult because my tuner has trouble tracking notes as low as C, but I went with my gut and tightened up the intonation and suddenly it was very stable. Then a few more minutes of fine-tuning all the strings (since the wood adjusted to the new tension a little) and it's perfect.

I don't know why people settle on 11's if they prefer the feel of 10's. When properly set up, the tension doesn't feel much different from E-standard.
