    Hello, so I've been exploring lower tunnings recently but I also realised I need the right strings for the tunning.

    I'm basically tunning in drop D 7 string (D2 - A2 - D3 - G3 - C4 - E4 - A4)

    now Joe Cocchi from WTR goes down to drop C (C2 etc) and uses .110 .90 .54 .36 .24 .18 .15, 7 string set on a 27" scale (which I also have), which is god damned huge, and probably too big for drop D.

    What string size would work well for this tunning but not feel too big
