Winner for C-standard on Gibson scale

Romas, 05.01.2018
I am using this set on my Ghost Fret (Gibson scale with 628 mm (24.75 in), EX type body) guitar. I tune it to C-standard (2 whole steps down).
Tension wise it is normal, but might be on a higher side for all solo-oriented people. However here is the main point of these strings - these maintain adequate tension and good intonation; fret buzz is diminished and overall feel is much more controlled.
It is important to understand that we are talking 60% feel and 40% sound here. I mostly play melodic hi-gain metal stuff (think of older Swedish death metal). I am a rhythm guitarist and having strings which retain percussive feel on the thicker strings is important.
Thinner strings are alright: plain 3rd is at the verge of having this flabby "ployyynk" sound open (you know what I mean) but it is still very serviceable. 1st and 2nd are "ok" for infrequent soloing that I would do, but for someone more prone to that, especially with bending in mind, I would swap 1st to .10.
Overall, it is a great value set, durable and lasting a month or more depending on how much you chug.

Good for drop-B

Jimey, 11.05.2018
I bought these as there is no 'balanced tension' set available in this guage area. As they are 'optimised' for c-standard tuning I figured I would be in the right ballpark. In recent times I have been drawn to higher tension sets than before, so by using these for drop-b I am actually using them at a higher tension than the 'optimised' C tuning (C#, except the sixth string dropped to B). Unusually for my taste there is a tension mismatch, but I am enjoying the set.

Across the board I am very happy with them, although I may end up swapping the 60 string for something thicker next time around, to ensure less of a tension difference at the low end. As it stands the dropped B is closer in tension to the treble strings than to the other two bass strings. Something like a 70 would work mathematically. (No stars lost, as a matter of preference, not a an issue with the string set)

As usual with D'addario they sound fantastic and are quite long lived. If you are a sweaty player (I am not) or gig a lot (I don't with this guitar) maybe spring for the NYXL set.
