Gibson Explorer - Strings for Whole Step Down


Recommended Posts



I've got a question.

I am currently using Gibson 10-46 strings in standard tuning (on my Gibson Explorer).

I want to down-tune my guitar whole step down to DGCFAd.

My questions is:

What strings should I use to get the same string tension in new tuning?

I am thinking about:


Ernie Ball Beefy Slinky (11-15-22-30-42-54) hey have description "Optimal for Detuning"

Gibson Brite Wires (11-14-18-30-42-50)
