I just bought myself a Godin Redline 1 (EMG81), which I intend to use it solely for rhythm guitar in the band, in drop C tuning (CGCFAD).
I'm used to the 10-52 string gauge for Drop C, however, since this guitar won't be used for any solo-ing at all, I plan to put on a really heavy gauge to achieve that chunky tone.
I was thinking of either 11-54 or 12-56. Which would be a better choice from your experience?
The last time I used Ernie Ball Not Even Slinky (12-56), the 3rd string seemed the resonate a little oddly.
I'm not sure why Ernie Ball chose to use 24p instead of a 24w.
