Polarity reverse adapter for Drawmer 1960?

I'd like to use an existing insert cable with my 1960 but the inserts on that are wired opposite of the standard (tip=return instead of tip-send).

I've looked around but haven't seen a simple 1/4 adapter that I can plugin to the 1960's inserts that will reverse the polarity. Anyone come across something that can do that job?

I use the same insert on a console with normal wiring so don't want to use a completely separate cable to avoid plugging in and out and would rather fix it semi-permanent on the 1960 side.

Cheers

Like this?

You could also reverse them yourself in the TRS connector.

Thanks, saw that one but a bit pricey for what it is. Looking for a female to male 1/4 that would allow me to resolder but a lot of them are formed around the connectors in a way that you can't access the wiring.

Gotcha.
Maybe just cut off the molded connector and put on a good one?

Thanks, yea might do something like that or just get some parts from Mouser and go all DIY.

I'm missing something here. Is this the typical male TRS x dual male TS? Can't just swap which TS represents send vs return duties?
Thanks

Sorry should have mentioned the other end of the inserts are XLR (SPL Vitalizer and Pultec) so can't do that (also I'd rather not plug and unplug all the time from the devices).

What I do wonder is why Drawmer choose that configuration. The model I have is from the first version in the 80s so maybe that's why but the manual still shows the reverse behaviour so seems they kept it even for the newer models.
