I bought a really nice cable from Tim Northcutt of Hot Rod Harps at 
SPAH2003.  It's a very nicely made (gold plated connectors, heavy 
construction) 15' 1/4"-to-1/4" guitar cable with a built in circuit 
interupter in one end.  It's not a switch, it's a circuit interupter, 
so there's no "POP" when you switch it off.  Keep it at the head and 
you have an on/off switch on every 1/4" mic head you own.  Use it at 
a gig to switch mic heads in the middle of a performance.  As I have 
been switching most of my mics to 1/4", this is very handy for me.
