    Question Speaker cable "sticky"

    Hi, I tried to cut and strip my old speaker cable so as to install banana plugs and realised that the insulator left a dark, sticky coating on the copper strands. Do I clean it with something before attaching the plugs? Is it irrelevant? Or is it bad news and I need new cable? Thanks, AEKostas
