Looking for audio circuit tester

I am trying to find out where to purchase a product. I have heard it called a Fox and Hound, but do not know who manufactures it. The unit is used mainly to trace wires and comes with a sending unit and a probe. You would attach the sending unit to a wire and can than go anywhere that wire runs and relocate it at that location as the probe gives an audio alert as to which wire it is. The price I have been told is in the $50-$60 range. Has anyone heard of this or a similar product.
Thanks Phil

Try greybar industrial supply or grainger.com for the fox. I have used one for years. just dont use them on live circuits. They object. Also you may want to try a telephone butt set and warbler instead. they do the same job and can be used for other troubleshooting items. And you can attach the buttset to any phoneline and check for dialtone, or make a call. Harris makes a good buttset. Get the cheap one as you wont need to use it everyday
