Default Lights

Hello,
I'm thinking about upgrading the [burned out] lights on an Epicure M1 Amplifier. I put a voltmeter on and it looks like they 24 volts is going to the the bulbs. The bulbs don't exactly look serviceable (2 in the pic) and appear to be soldered in place. Any ideas on easy ways to update them? Ideally, LEDs seem the way to go to me.

Thoughts?

Anthony

I have not found a diagram or a manual for Heavy Epi yet... Perhaps information is difficult to find because Epi died before the age of information?

I do have a pic of the existing burned out bulb and the leads coming off the bulb case. It looks like the bulbs are soldered in place, I'm just not sure if the enclosure is standard or not.

Is the measured voltage AC or DC ? tbh that looks a pretty common bulb style, here is one at random

SLI EBT - 687BS. - WIRE ENDED 5MM 24V 3 LUMENS | CPC UK

LED's can be successful but visually they often need some kind of heavy diffuser to even the light source. Otherwise you just see points of bright light.

I was thinking about something like that LED, I just wasn't sure if there was a neater way to restore it. Actually, I was wondering if the little lighting box was a standard.

I've taken LED's and ground the dome off with a dremel tool and they diffuse more like a bulb. Not so focused..

Just a thought..

I think the box would be 'available' back in the day (meaning its not a one off) but I wouldn't call it standard as in something you could go and obtain today.
