I just bought a RFT (East Germany)omni mic (for around 15$) and now I'm looking for an adapter, so I can listen to it.
Here's a picture of the mic's connector:
I'd be grateful for any and all info that would help me. Ideally: who makes & sells an adapter to XLR?
Also, on old AKG mics with 3-pin DIN connectors: which pin carries what part of the signal?

You would figure those things would be easy to find in Europe.
It's MUCH easier, now that I know that they're called "large, 3-pin Tuchel",
which I didn't
which is the reason why I posted in the 1st place
which, somehow, is the purpose of an online forum
as opposed to "ranting"
which is why I'll stop now
Got it! It came in the mail today from a guy in Germany who advertises on eBay.de and even does them to order and in large quantities if necessary.
Cost me 28 €. Still cheaper than the 50 to 75 $ I've seen being asked.
And he even sent it by Air mail!
