Ok, so my A string broke. I don't know what gauge to get a new one for. It's a First Act and the strings are still the stock strings.

Get a set of .009's.

Ernie Ball super-slinkies should do.

Just go to a store and say that you need a pack of 9's. The Ernie Ball 9's come in a pink package.

You should change the entire set of strings. So loosen all your old strings and cut them using pliers/wire cutters, and then swap 'em out for the new pack.

I've had the tiny ones in my mouth and accidentally swallowed a bit of the liquid, you should be all right.

just dont get it in your eyes and wear gloves
If all the other strings are in good condition just go to the store and ask for an A or 5th string. The gauge will be about .042 assuming were talkin bout a steel string. I honestly cant remember wat it would be for a classical. Its been so long since i re-strung one...lol.
