    I was originally planning on getting this beast set up with these gauges for Bb tuning 10,13,17,30,42,52,70. I'm starting to get a bit tired of tuning so low and am considering getting it set up a half step to C standard. What gauges would I need for similar tension? I definitely don't wanna go bellow 9s for the higher strings.

    I'd say something like 9 to 54

    I'd suggest downloading the string tension java applet from https://github.com/Ishan333/STC
    Drop the strings you prefer into it, change the tuning, and then change the strings until you have the same tensions as before.
