You need a small "tuchel" connector.

I need a couple of these as well. Does anyone know where to get some Tuchel to XLR cables? I've got a pair of these wierd Bulgarian condensers that I really want to try.

Nice M160! IMNSHO it's one of the best guitar mics ever.

Actually, that's a 3-Pin Mini DIN connector.

In your second photo, looking directly at the pins with the notch on the bottom, the pins are: #1 to the left = +, #2 on top (opposite the notch) = ground, and #3 to the right = -.

To make an adaptor just flip the wires from 1 and 2 on the DIN to 2 and 1, respectively, on the XLR.
