    Does anybody out there know of a good spray to use to remove oxidation from the plug ends of xlr cabling?

    Thanks!

    a good wire brush or isopropyl seems to fix almost anything

    Thanks Wolf...

    I remember hearing that name from some time ago and couldn't recall it. That is exactly what I was looking for.

    Take care,

    Remember to becareful with these sprays, they will destroy the plastic inserts on multi cables. Use a Contact Cleaner found at electronic stores to be safe.
