10-52 or 10-46 for strings? D'addario?

i have 2 guitars, theyre both free of fret buzz with heavy strings, but with 10-46 on one, and 9-42 i have some pretty bad fret buzz, should i just put 10-52 on both?

p.s. i know the type of gear tom uses, pedals and guitars anyways

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

We already have a Tom Morello. We don't need two. Play like yourself - we don't have any of those yet.
Do you feel warm within your cage?

I'd say 10-52 because he does play in DROP D quite a bit.

I object. Raise your action and adjust your truss rod, then it won't buzz.

If your neck is correctly adjusted, your intonation is set, and your action is appropriate, then there is absolutely no reason at all that your strings should have 'bad fret buzz' as you put it.


If you took it to a Guitar Center, then, well my friend - you wasted your money, because Guitar Center doesn't know shit about guitars... Or centers... Or anything.

Most quality guitar stores will set up electrics with a type of gauge in mind. If you want to play a different gauge string (and don't know how to set it up like I don't) ask a guitar shop to install a new set of strings and do a set up at the same time.

The other piece of advice I've gotten in the past was that if you can't hear the buzzing through the amp, it's nothing to worry about.
