Well i decided to put some Ernie Ball Not-Even-Slinky strings (top 12, bottom 56) on my guitar
and now, after tuning them up to drop-c they sound like steel drums
no sustain at all
very wiggley, rubber band sound, but they're fairly high of the frets
so i'm not sure how to remedy this

so i'm wondering if i should have done something different going from a higher to a lower gauge
It's becuase Ernie Ball Not Even Slinkies suck. The unwound third is awful.

When I drop C, I use 12's straight across. I'd recommend DR or GHS, but brand is preference.
Do you feel warm within your cage?

And have you figured out yet -

remedy: never use those strings again, and get some quality strings like D'Addarios
