If you want to go cheaper try All Electronics. Although they aren't
switchcrafts I am happy with what I got from them. 

They have the following.

1/4 plugs for $.40 [10+]
1/4 NC open frame jacks for $.50 [10+]

As far as the cable, I purchased some locally at $.23 per foot(note: this
is for unbalanced 1+ shield cords). Someone else may be able to provide a
lead as to a good source for cable. 


(This place is also selling midi cables at $1.25 for a 6 footer.)
