Hope someone else will be able to help you find them closer to you.

Secrist have one too, byt it's "too defined" IMO

Pat Moulton sells some different ones as well : http://store.patmoultonsbabycollection. ... 2cf1aba084

Otherwise I just make my own out of foil covered in masking tape.
Hugs, Sandra
