    So I have been playing on my seven for awhile now and I use a C standard tuning (C-F-Bb-Eb-G#-C-F). What I usually do is buy one of these Super Light Top/Regular Bottoms (.009-.046) packs then buy a separate .059 gauge string for the C (I sometimes drop it to Bb for dropped stuff). I was wondering if there was a company that has a pack with these gauges because it is kind of a pain to buy that low string separate and if I use just a regular 7-string light pack its too tight on the high strings and not tight enough on the low strings.

    *EDIT*
    I just realized how tired I was when I saw that I spelled guitar wrong in the title.

    Lol a name is a name and also the tuning is higher than standard 7 string tuning. From a view point of a seven string guitar, the tuning is just a half-step higher than normal. Those Zakk Wylde strings sound nice but I have had 60's snap when I tune the bottom string to C and on the top the 10's are too tight and actually snap on occasion.

    Your 0.60 gauge string snap at C?
    I use a 0.66 for drop A and sometimes B, and it lasts forever:scratch:

    I use ghs 9-58 set for drop C tuning on a 27" 7 string (1 string is F#, 7nth - C)
    Even .52 works for C here since its a 27"
