    I put some TI flats on my old P, and the "A" string sounds so much brighter. More of that piano/ round tone. I am thinking of eating buffalo wings, not washing my hands and playing just that string..

    Anyone have a better suggestion?

    Well now you've got me craving buffalo wings, and I don't know any place that I can get them at 1 AM

    How do you make a "hot string" dead?

    Yes, just play the strings for a while without the bbq sauce.

    crayon.

    never tried it, but it's cheaper than ordering the colored strings from DR.

    I think that's for a completely different forum... :D

    Seriously though, you can do the old 'nose grease' thing (read it in a Jaco interview once) - just swipe your finger across the ol' sniffer & jam on the A for a while. Lather, rinse & repeat. ;)

    Jacob used this for a little speed for the fingertips during gigs, but this will most likely give you what your looking for.
