Guitar Hero World Tour Drum kit...wiring to the yellow cymbol connector jack, can it be fixed?

I think the connector jack which plugs into the yellow cymbol is a right angle TS jack. But how does one rewire it? I need to attach a new connector but the liklihood of successfully soldering the layers of tiny filaments that form the wire seems remote. Is it possible to buy a connector already attached to a length of wire so that I can try and attach it at the other end? Does anyone know where the wire goes when it disappears inside the cymbol support? Would really appreciate some help especially after discovering that the guarantee only lasts 90 days! Thanks
