The string gauges used by both Pat and Rob for the "Red Before Black" sessions were as follows.
For the A# tuning - .013 - .017 - .026 (wound) - .036 - .046 - .056
For the G# tuning - .014 - .018 - .028 (wound) - .042 - .052 - .062
These were custom gauges from Daddario, sent in bulk and assembled into sets.

I’d love to know why Rob prefers to tune like that. I used to do that when tuning stupid low until I realized it massed up every chord

A warning about titanium screws: if you screw titanium into or onto steel or aluminum, it can “bond” to the dissimilar metal and be about impossible to remove without destroying the threads in both parts. I’m from the motocross world and use a ton of titanium bolts but most of us stopped using titanium axle nuts because they fused to the steel axles 😂 There is a type of ‘anti-seize’ grease specifically for applying to both pieces you’re assembling that help the titanium not to seize onto the dissimilar metal and I’d recommend using it in this application since those threads in the Floyd rose are a very small gauge. Makes it a lot easier to adjust the bolts as well when they don’t lock together solidly😂😂

I love that guitar! It would be perfect if it didn't have the reverse headstock! I hate that sh#t! Otherwise it's perfect!

Maybe I missed it but what gauge strings does he normally play with?.....I just switched to 9's and love the feel..If you see him tell him we are behind him and wish him well and hope he gets everything straightened out.

One query, they didn't have to enlarge the cavity of the sixth string in the locking nut? the maximum of the sixth in the locking nut is 056
