When I used to tune to A, I'd use an 11 gauge set with a .60 for the low A. For B I just buy a 7 string set and lose the high E.
Do you feel warm within your cage?

And have you figured out yet -

wow so you really want to sound brutalz... a tuning is honestly the most ridiculous thing i've heard of, maybe you should play bass and make your bassist kick a blue whale on stage.

If you want that tuning though 11 and 12 probably won't be enough. I would say 13's at least

13s

Back when I was a teen, I was making out with this girl, when I had the bright idea of putting my hand inside her panties.

She had her period.

I usually do the same on my drop B and baritone guitars. Right now, I have a bass string (can't remember what guage though) on my low B on my 7-string guitar just because i bought a bunch trying to figure out what gauge I liked on my Intrepid. You could always buy a set of strings that you like and just buy singles of different gauges for the low string and see what you like the best.

B standard I'd use 12's, so 12's for drop A.

If you want A standard, then i agree with the others, 13's are the way to go!

Ok then maybe not ernie ball strings cuz the thickest are 012. Exept the baritones but the 6th string is pretty thick (072)

.11 will be fine, I use .10's in A# tuning and dont have any floppness, non at all, cause I know how to set up for low tunings. But the heavier guage string you use in low tunings the better your lead will sound and the more bass you will have in your rythem.

Ok then how about g standard or g# (cannibal corpse), 014? And can i use 013 in drop b?

Personally, anything lower than D Standard I'd use 13s. I also use .11s for E standard though. Try out some different gauges to see what you like, but I'd go with .13s for sure, especially in A I think anything less would feel to floppy.
