Do you use different strings depending upon the size of the guitar you are using?

Not different gauge strings, I use light strings on all of them.  That said, I will change brand and materials depending on the size and tonal qualities of a guitar.  It just depends on what sound I want to get from that one...

 +1   Same here....   although on smaller guitars the scale length becomes a factor....

Smaller guitars, no.  Differing scale lengths, yes.

Yeah different gauges and different brands. Mediums on my OOO but mostly light D'Addario EXPs or Elixir nanos. I've got a box full of various strings, however. Acoustic and electric guitar, baritone, mandolin, nylon etc. Probably thirty or so sets plus a spare set in every case. A neighborhood music store went out of business a few years back and during their GOOB sale, I picked up a lot at half price or less including a bunch of odd things from the "dollar a set" box. Things like Cleartones, Jack Daniels by Peavy, Wyres, Dean Markley among other various and sundry electric sets. I'm set for quite a while.
