dbx 160S bulbs
« on: March 24, 2020, 11:37:21 PM »
I don't want to pull this apart so figured I would take the easy route and ask if anyone knows the part number for the meter bulbs in a DBX 160S?

Who cares?  Replace them with warm white LEDs and never worry about bulb type again.  ;D

The colour (temperature) wasn't exactly essential, but i did just that in a client's old stereo a few years back ;D (with white LED's scavenged from laptop display backlights :P )

I replace bulbs with LEDs whenever I can these days.  Yes, I still have a bunch of #44 and #47 bulbs for Fender amps and whatnot where people insist on having things original.  I'm sure some toob gooroo out there has claimed that going to an LED will change the tone...
