Ever used an inline mic switch adapter?

    I'm curious if the things are efficient, don't interfere with phantom power, and don't introduce a pop when switched. The inline ones I've seen, even from Switchcraft, honestly don't get rave reviews.

    In short, I'm using a mic at church with an on/off switch,that I think is inferior to any of mine from my currently unused PA rig. None of my mics have switches, but it is mandatory on the church platform due to comb filtering, and other issues.

    Can I take my mic and a $25ish adapter and make it work?

    In the 80s I was in a band with terrible feedback problems. I bought an SM58 with an on/off switch built in. Here it is 2020 and I still use the same mic. The switch is silent and causes no problems.

    Back then Shure charged $35 extra for the switch but I really needed it. I have never forgiven Shure, in light of them lowering the price to $5 in later years.
