1st Posting so be gentle please!
As a baritone voice I find that many songs are better sung by downtuning the guitar( in my case a Westfield Folk). Does anyone have hints for string types that keep the crispness of tone when dropping them a couple of notes? Or any other pertinent advice. Many thanks.

I would say just get the strings you like, but in a heavier gauge. Heavy strings have higher tension, and really make down tuning more workable.

General rule of thumb I use is to go up a gauge for every half-whole step you downtune.
Actually called Mark!

Shouldn't be too bad as they'll be at lower tension, they probably won't actually feel all that different.

Thanks Mark aka Seagull; bought, strung, and now sounding great, maybe even better and not too much extra effort needed in concert pitch either.

lol. I've played a set of custom 15's (60ish to 15 guage) tuned to drop A and I swear that it felt like a loose set of standard E tuned with 10's
