I have a Jackson DK2 and put on .11s and tuned drop c perfectly. This is my first time playing drop c on this guitar and on a floyd actually. when I play the strings feel more floppy. Is this normal? I've played drop c on my Epi and it didn't feel quite like this.

You may wanna try larger strings. It's... sort of normal. If using such thin strings then they won't hold tension as well.

yea,its gna be 'floppy' since the tuning is so low and the tension isnt as high.

That would only work if the bridge was rising due to lack of tension. But dropped to C on .11's I'd think would be real loose.

Really? I have my Jackson KVX10 with .10s in Drop C and they really arent that bad. Just enough flexibility, and not to tight at all.

people play drop c with 10's... 10-52's i mean. i can live with 10-52. maybe you should get it set up and do a truss adjustment while you're at it, not that it will change anything. try different brand. i think GHS Boomers are really tense feeling, awesome for drop tunings imo. i use 10-52 boomers. standard tuning though... im wating for them to die so i can go back to ernie balls...

I use 10's in E-standard and I think it's floppy

but yeah, for drop-C, something like 11-54 or 11-56 should do the job.

I also use .11's for drop c and it doesn't feel that floppy to me. Although I do raise the action a shitload when i play dropped.

matter of preference, personally i prefer the strings being a bit "floppy" but that said it doesnt feel that loose for me.

On my Jackson DKMG I'm using 10 - 52 in Drop C/D standard and it doesn't feel floppy to me .. That said I think I prefer looser string that most people I've met.
