is anyone interested in a bit of swapping?
« on: May 13, 2008, 09:00:54 PM »
i've just spent ages on the net trying to find a replacement bulb or bulbs for my peterson pre-amp, the GE #19 ones, and am endlessly irritated by the lack of findability in aus.
i'm also after some later style hinges, top and bottom left and right,

and i had the thought that maybe someone wants some gear that i have and we could swap?


so if anyone has lamps or hinges, please let me know.

this is aimed at those heavy forum users, so if you haven't posted much i may be distrusting. sorry.

I had the same problem when started rebuilding my peterson pre. I just took some standard lamps with the right features: 24V 20mA.
advantage: supply in Germany, cheap
disadvantae: have to turn the solder iron on in order to change, next time I would change the socket aswell

I dont know how this change affects the sound. I got my pre with broken filaments so I didnt hear how it sound when having the origianl lamps. but I would considering changing the socket and the lamp type if I were in your shoes.

kind regards

and how did you solve your demand of supply ?
Or is that a secret and you would have to kill all of us after giving it away ?
