Where can I buy this shower plumbing part?

I don't know what it is called exactly, but its something like a shower mixer valve. What is correct terminology? The cold water valve side of it is bad. It is extremely difficult to adjust the water temp because if you rotate it a tiny tiny bit, it goes from too hot to too cold. Only after fiddling with it for a while can you get temp just right. before opening up the wall, I thought I would find some separate cold water valve that I could replace, but no, its all one assembly. And to make matters worse, all the parts of this plumbing are soldered together!!

It's probably easier than you're imagining. Post a picture of what you have and someone here should be able to help you.

You probably just need to replace your shower cartridge. You do that from the handle side of the shower. There are probably a hundred YouTube videos on how to do it, but it depends on the brand and model you have and whether or not you can locate the replacement parts.
