Hey man. I play a LOT of Drop C too. Thing is though, in order to get a decent sound from Drop C you should use either 52 or 56 gauge strings. Unfortunaetly you can’t do standard E tuning in those gauge strings due to the tension of the strings. I own a few guitars, each with different gauge strings and tunings. only way to do it I’m afraid.
Also you may have to adjust your tremelo plate to get to C properly too. I have a Floyd Rose plate and it is tricky (had to add an extra spring in order to solve the string slack problem) I wish you luck man and I hope I have helped in some way.
: eeeeeeeey what would be the best strings for my
: i have an sg standard and play a lot of drop C but also a lot of standard. And i had some heavey strings and they broke on standard tuning but sounded and felt great for drop tuning. What do you think would be the best brand and gauge?? THANK YOU!!!!
