3 would mean it's TRRS and you'd have to look for that type. Chances are it has 2 and the Amphenol (or Radio Shack, or Neutrik) plug will work. I got mine from Redco for less than $2 plus shipping.
Sorry it's been awhile since my last post. I ended up ordering a Neutrik 3.5mm plug (NTP3RC-B), which just arrived today. With the help of some electrical tape, I connected the wires to the plug to make sure everything works properly, and it does :D So, now on to actually soldering the wires.
That being said, can either of you guys provide some soldering advice since I've never attached wires to a plug like this before? It seems pretty straightforward, but I want to make sure I do it right. Also, there are two ground cables; do I need to do anything special to connect them, or just attach them both to the sleeve?
And again, thanks for your suggestions :D
