    The quickest way is to insert a cable and use multimeter

      Thanks for the fast reply !
      But I donīt have one...
      But maybee you can help me. I soldered the red wire of a piezo to the small bronze part on the conector and the black wire of the piezo to the small metal part on the conector ( opposite of the bronze part). I plugged it in my megadrum and it works. With this info can you tell what is tip/ring/sleeve? thanks :-)

        Sleeve will be the big one at the bottom.

        If you plug in a snare input, wire a 1/4" tip to the bronze, the black to the big one, and you get a head hit... you just found the tip of your connector. If it makes a rim sound, you got the ring. That is if the Megadrum is wired that way....

        I use alligator clips when in doubt and wire up connectors to find which wire and connectors should go along.
