What are recommended string guages for tuning down to dropped C?

Currently i'm using 10's for my SZ520 and wondered if there is a recomended minimum if your going that low.

Regards,

daniel

I would have chosen 12s (and 11s for D) for that tuning, but I use 10s in standard, so by default I'd go to a higher gauge for low tunings...

There are people who use 8s for D tunings, so you could probably get away with 9s or 10s in C. Depends on your touch as well...

edit: typos, typos, typos, and typos...and it was only a 2 line post!

12 seems to be alrite for me, but I guess 11's could do fine also. You could customise and buy 2 sets, for a heavy bottom, but easy to bend top. I believe D'addario makes hybrid sets like these.
