    Hey there,
    I play an Ibanez RGA 121H and I was wondering what is the best gauges to use for Drop C tuning? As well are there any specifi sets or brands that you like to stick to for drop C tuning?

    Thanks!

    I have a Schecter Hellraiser that I keep tuned to D/ Drop C, and I use 10-46 Slinky's- it feels loose but not sloppy and muddy. I think it's just in how you have your bridge set up.

    I really like DR Pure Blues in 11's. They have this grind to them that sounds nice and aggressive.
