A 2nd hand TD3 works great but the 'proper' cable for the hi-hat pedal is missing. We tried with a guitar lead but it only worked (intermittently) when inserted about half-way in. The other pads all use 1/4" jacks which look like stereo leads (?) but when we tried one of those, it didn't work at all.
What is definitively the correct cable type, so I can figure out if the fault is with the pedal or not?
It's a Roland FD-8 HH pedal
