Do you mean 'tinned' cable?
If so, then for the difference in cost between bare copper and tinned copper cores, I'd suggest you go for the tinned option. It will last longer and save you having to re-do the job in a few years time.
Amother option is to solder the exposed cores of std cable, but it's a fair bit of headwork, for the cost saving.
