Can anyone help me? Why are my strings snapping (11 - 54's) when I'm tuning to Drop C?

Also - are you actually tuning to drop C or are you just detuning two whole steps?
what guitar you got? only seen issues with strats tuning to drop C, and thats holding it rather than snapping. maybe get some 12/13s if your playing heavy stuff
That's why I asked what tuning he's actually using. A true Drop C tuning wouldn't necessarily need heavy top strings but would need heavier bottom strings than you'd get in a set of 12's. I used to use lo-tune GHS Boomers (the Zakk Wylde signature ones) and they were 11-72. Nice for a bit of Carcass!
