Looking for light bulbs for Peterson amp
« on: October 01, 2015, 11:30:55 AM »
Can anyone recommend somewhere to get reasonably priced #19 miniature light bulbs for the vibrato section of a Peterson pre amp?

I found some on Amazon but they are rated at 14.4V and the preamp requires 24V.
http://www.amazon.com/19-Miniature-Light-Bulb-Pack/dp/B00BQ0CZNI#productDetails

It seems hard to find ones actually rated for 24V.

Any ideas?

Thanks! Justin

Search for GE #19 bulbs, and they're also readily available at Vintage Vibe:

Thanks for that!
It seems that any of the ones I find are 14.4V and I wonder if the Vintage Vibe ones are too. They don't specify.

Although Mike has some, here was my list when I was looking for them:

Vintage Vibe sells them but for $5 a piece, I bought mine from there and they worked so I'm happy with that - http://www.vintagevibe.com/products/ge-19-bulbs?variant=1084761123

Alternatively this link was posted ages ago: http://www.ebay.com/itm/No-19-Mini-Bi-2-Pin-12-14-v-Vintage-USA-Radio-Dial-Train-JukeBox-Lamp-Light-Bulb-/310826996472?pt=US_Light_Bulbs&hash=item485ebb92f8

Free shipping on these: http://www.amazon.com/19-Miniature-Light-Bulb-Pack/dp/B00BQ0CZNI apparently high defect rate though

Thanks!
I went for the ones on Amazon. Figured it would be handy having a few extra lying around.
We'll see if they do the trick.
