Could someone help me out, I have no idea what this tube-like thing is.
This is from a Madcatz Xbox360 drum kit pedal. The pedal stopped working and I opened the it up and found just this tube thing connected to a wire going into a controller via a 2.5mm headphone jack, that plugs into a PC or Xbox360 with a USB cable. I'm guessing it's a vibration sensor or something (for when the pedal hit's the plastic on the opposite side of this tube), and this is the only electrical component in the pedal. My best guess is that it failed and that's why the pedal isn't working, and I hope it can be replaced. The cord seems fine to me.
