You can get them at a hardware store usually.You might check to see if the saddles are cut to wide.If they are and you have just a little room left in the saddles you can use a three corner fille and cut a slight V slot in the ones that are buzzing(rattling)that should fix the problem.Or, you can buy some ricky saddles and replace the originals.That way you can play the bass and keep the originals incase you need to turn it :)

Problem is modern Ricky sadles will not fit early/pre '73 sadle unit's (I am not sure of this word). The idea of a a three corner fille  is a good one!

Well,that leaves two choices.Either cut the saddles a little more or just get an allparts bridge and hold on to your original one

Classic!
A bad day of playing bass is still better than a good day of playing cello.
