Replacement Festoon Bulbs
Various vintage McIntosh Tuners, Tuner/Pre-Amps and Preamplifiers
utilized a fuse-like festoon bulb for dial illumination.
Incandescent replacement bulbs have been unobtanium for some time.
Traditional sources stopped making these years ago.
We have contracted with a supplier to produce these incandescent festoon
bulbs on a custom basis. The original bulbs had a white reflector
painted on (to direct the light toward the dial). However, the
paint tends to discolor and burn over time.
Each of our bulbs has a high-temperature white Teflon tape reflector.
NOTE: .Early units used a clip-type fuse holder and 7mm diameter bulb.
Later units used a clip that engaged the top and bottom
points of a 6mm diameter bulb.
In order to develop a universal bulb, we have produced these as
6mm bulbs. For those who have the earlier fuse holder,
merely pinch them a bit so they make good electrical
and mechanical contact with the bulb.
Thanks to Patrice Hassen, Terry DeWick, Tom Manley and Ryan Kilpatrick
for their help in bringing this project to completion.
