This is a cricket in the family Gryllidae. The two thin "strings" on the left are antennae, and the two sturdier "strings" on the right are cerci (though your image is not clear, and perhaps one of the extensions on the right is actually an ovipositor). See here for a clear image showing cricket anatomy.

Without additional info, I'm not sure you'll get an accurate species ID on your specimen.
