    It looks like a female 1/4" that has shrink wrap around it to protect it and prevent shorting. There are many 1/4" female connectors available and any would work. You could also cut the male off and solder the two wires together, be sure to protect the ground with something, I have copper tape, and shrink wrap the whole thing.

    Pretty sure that's a 1/8" connection, per Barry's suggestion. The much bigger naked connector looks like standard 1/4". But 1/8" are common enough; Radio Shack, etc.

    Well, I don't think it is a 1/8" male connector. If it is, it would plug into my cellphone like an earplug connector and I can get a matching female connector easily. This is male connector normally seen in an under the saddle transducer for guitar. I have a dozen of these and like to experiment using it without a preamp that is part of the package.

    Sure looks like a phone plug to me.there are at least 3 sizes of phone plugs. Full size, miniature, and suf miniature Radio Shack should have either one, take the plug and let them match it.

    Radio shack has them, their quality is marginal, MCM sells 2.5 and 3.5 mm connectors like those mail order as well.

    If you have one of another size and can solder then change it, it is only two wires. Just keep the hot hot and the ground ground.

    Thanks, I will take my transducer to Radioshack and look for a matching female LOL, pun intended.

    There is a chassis-mount 1/4" jack in the photo, so both the male plug and the inline jack are 1/8" by comparison. I would recommend Allparts.com: https://www.allparts.com/EP-4680-000...ck_p_5293.html

    Or use Mouser Electronics for a better in-line version:

    Any place that still does repairs on electronic equipment should be able to match it up, IF there are still any of those shops around...

    I would think most music stores that did amp repair would have parts.
