That is a very good price. Care to share where you got it??

As far as a needle valve, I would highly recommend the Clippard MNV-4K2.
You can buy it from Clippard directly, a local distributor (see their web
site, www.clippard.com, for local distributors - *** this is your lowest
cost alternative ***) or online fish stores such as AquaBotanic, Florida
Driftwood (where I bought mine). You will need an adaptor to connect it
directly to the regulator, doing so is something which I highly recommend.
If you have a local Clippard distributor, should cost you about $11 + tax.
It has 7-8 "turns of revolution". I and others find it a great needle valve
for the price. Also, it is a more accurate needle valve than the one
offered by FishVet and others (which has the black knob).
