Thread: TAT guys...C standard?

  1. TAT guys...C standard?

    TAT guys...what gauge strings are you using for Drop C and C standard?

    I'm currently using Daddario 11s in D standard, and love the tension and feel.

    My TAT is tuned to C standar with Ernie Ball .13-.56 (third wounded) or with a D'Addario XL EXL110-7 (.10+.13-.59...is a 7 string gauge putting away the first one .10) upon availability

    Both gauge work fine, but I prefer .13-.59. The extra tension and bass is cooler to my fingers & ears

    I use the same gauge as Xykhron in C standard. Just a 7-string set where I use the 6 deeper strings, 13-59 (:

    I tune my TAT to C with Ernie Ball 13-56 and I myself play a mix of lead and rhythm, as well as rhythmic lead and leady rhythm

    Rhythm and Lead player here too. I must say I got a bit surprised and butt****ed regarding the bending after I tuned down to C standard and changed strings. It's all good now though.
