    Hi there I am working on rewiring a Guitar Hero World Tour Drum set and need to repair the symbol cable that uses TS as output. Since I don't have any TS cables to cut my plan is to wire a TRS cable to the original left over TS cable on the Drum set.

    Here's a picture of what it should look like when connected all up.

    Thanks to the help of very helpful user on an other forum :) It looks like I need to figure out which wire is which. The very helpful user on the other forum said I can use a battery and light bulb to determine which wire is which I just don't know how to wire up this battery and light bulb? If any body could help me figgure this out I would totally appreciate it! :) Also here's some more pictures of what I have done so far.

    Here's the TRS cables I am working with.

    This is the electrical wire I plan to use.

    Here's my right symbol for the drum set.

    Original black and white TS cable connected to the drum set.

    Any Help Is Greatly Appreciated Thanks! :D - djcjf
