About 3 weeks ago, Becktell and Blackerby in Austin had an ebony violin taipiece from Harmonie for sale - they had to order one and ordered a couple of extra - www.becktellblackerby.com.

They come in Ebony, Rosewood and Boxwood. They also maintain the correct string afterlength. You would have to order one specially through your Luthier or music shop.
They are also not cheap.
P.S. Try www.quinnviolins.com

Actually, using individual tuners is usually a bad idea because they add weight and dampening to the violin, they mess up the proper ratio of string length to stoplength (potentially further dampening the sound), and they pose a hazard to the violin if, for whatever reason, the bridge ever collapses suddenly.
My luthier's a friend, but if I suggested this to him, he'd likely punch me!

My pegs are pretty well-fit, and I have been able to tune the Helis with them without too much difficulty. But I do have to tweak the tuning every couple of days, and it's my understanding that the Helis really don't stand up well to the standard tuning technique of lowering the pitch of the string and then bringing it up to pitch, particularly if you overshoot it and tune it too sharp. What's your experience with them been?
