Closest StoreToronto (Long & McQuade Pro), Ontario
I needed heavier gauge strings to keep my guitar in tune when it is downtuned to D standard with drop C or A. Though, if you play in drop A exclusively, you might want to use a 54 or 56 for the 6th string. Can be tuned up to E standard without problems if needed. You might have to file the bridge saddles and nut slightly to get these to fit. Make sure to apply some lubricant as well. Definitely has a thicker tone compared to Ernie Ball Power Slinky.
