Hello UG!

I'm replacing my strings, and I wondered which ones to buy. I want baritone strings, although I have a normal guitar (yes, dumb).

So I wondered, if I want to play in A, which strings should I buy?
I considered http://www.thomann.de/dk/daddario_exl158.htm
but I wonder about the gauges? Is it compitable?


Thanks in advance


EDIT:
Come to think of it, a Baritone guitar has a longer neck than a normal one. I still want to drop A. Any help?
GEAR:

EPIPHONE LES PAUL GOTH

ROLAND CUBE 30x

Digitech Death Metal Distortion

Rock on!

Yeah that could work. Depends on how tight you like your strings. I just re-strung my 7 string guitar last night (which is only a 25.5" scale, so not a baritone) and I have a .060 on the lowest string which is tuned to A#. It's pretty good, but not incredibly tight, still loose enough to bend easily.

If you like really tight strings for fast riffing or what not then you may want to get a slightly heavier gauge string.
